I can’t tell you how difficult the above sentence was to write for me.  I have always felt that I fell short not accomplishing some major achievement… or not obtaining a career.  But, through God’s guidance, I have realized that I was chasing after something that was just not meant for me.  It turns out, I WAS meant to be a Good Friend, a Loving Wife, and a Mom.  So, there ya have it.  I accomplished my goals and I am happy… and I am not going to be ashamed of not being what I thought I had to be in the first place.  I LOVE my life!  Through many years in a fulfilling marriage, I have experienced amazing things!  I have lived in two different states in support of my husband’s career.  I have faced many fears as a Mom and have grown from being a parent in ways they don’t teach at a University.  I have been fat, healthy, poor, abundantly blessed, lonely, the life of the party, scared, heroic, disappointed, pleasantly surprised, and many other statuses in the past 16 years. I have learned that being Grateful is the best thing any person can do… in any circumstance- and that’s how I have JOY.I am so excited to have this blog with my Sisters.  Miles apart, we can still share something special. I’m Lisa Marie.  I’m blessed.  I am learning.
