Friday Ramblings II

Friday? Really? But what happened to this week? Where'd it go? I've been busy. Spent all day Wednesday with my sister, her kids and my daughter. Great day. Nice lunch. Got some sun. It was just one of those wonderfully relaxing days.

And then on Thursday I went shopping with my hubby. He bought me a new sewing machine. Yay! At last I can do some sewing and more fabric crafting. My old sewing machine died a couple of years ago and I never managed to get a new one. I also bought some new paints, scrapbook paper, ribbons and odds and ends for crafting. We had a nice lunch while out. Another wonderful day.

I'm truly blessed. I really am. I've been through so much emotional pain but I know God's been there for me even when I've been angry and felt like I'd been abandoned. And my kids are still suffering and have alot to deal with over the next year or so as my ex-husband decides to go through the various processes to become a woman. Ugh!

But in spite of that, I know as a family we are blessed. And we're going to choose to focus on the positive. God's blessed me with my a new husband. He's everything I ever dreamed about as a little girl of how a husband should be. He is my knight in shining armour. He's my best friend. Ever. I love my life. It's idyllic. No it's not perfect. I still have bad days. Days of utter distress from my past. But those days are getting less. I know I'm a stronger person. I'm working on being more confident. Finding real purpose. Being the woman God designed me to be.

So today I'm going to finish cleaning the flat. I love cleaning our home. Such pleasure in that. Honestly. And then this afternoon I'm going to paint and get creative with my new sewing machine. Yay!
