Good morning friends!

it is so nice to be able to get here to say hello and catch up a little bit! Christmas is upon us! it will be the first one without my momma and step dad, and you know, i am NOT dreading it! i am at a good place with it all.. yes i get tears in my eyes, however i know i will one day see them again! And i think the time i was able to spend with them helped so much!heart

Lets see... well, i have been trying to get healthy as you all know with the COPD and the diabetes.. and i can happily say, i have lost 37 pounds since May! 12 of those 37 pounds, i lost from Oct to Nov! so im trying...

Still have no home, however God is showing me that to call a place “my home” it doesnt have to be mine... its where i lay my head..So, we do have a home! we are still at my friend Maggy’s with her children, and its great.. just no internet. so i fb from my phone, but cant get fab40 on my phone :(  

My son is struggling, so prayers for him are very much appreciated.. there are so many questions i didnt ask momma before she passed, and so now sometimes i feel lost... What God has shown me is that i need to let him go through what he is going through... is that easy? no rather keep him sheltered from all the bad things, and make the choices for him so he doesnt make the wrong one... i cant do that, like i had to he has to stumble, fall, and get back up..  

one of the things he is going through is getting high.. i have been clean and sober 26 years so he hasnt seen it from me... hes gotten it from his friends, or people he knows.. i remember from my childhood, if momma demanded, or put her foot down, i did it anyway.. so i have found that none of that works.. ( demanding and putting my foot down ) cause it makes it seem even more better to him.. does that make sence? every morning and every night when i say my prayers, i visually see myself putting my children in Gods arms...

I need to go for now, but have more to fill you in on! lol so i will do that later..
Much love to you all!
