Life is beautiful to me, no matter what happens. I say this because there have been many things that happened to me and …. I am still here. I do not know what others have been through but my life has been emotional, abusive and scary. It has been loving, caring and amazing. I have decided to try my hand, or pen, at writing. I feel writing is extremely helpful to a person when expressing themselves. It is for me. What happens on a daily basis can be interesting. Take for instance today, I decided to change my living room around. I did not move everything, however, I did try to make it look more spacious. Every time i begin changing rooms around in my apartment, I soon realize I have more then I had before, which means more clutter in my home

I really like to know who else has this issue? I know that I can’t be the only one who goes through this. After fourteen years in a relationship, we have a lot of clutter to give away. Today I found a garbage bag full of baby girl clothes despite the fact that all the grand daughters are over 2 years old. I , at some point, packed up baby clothes for newborns than forgot to to donate them. I imagine I will find much more as I go along.

Today I will be taking care of 2 of the most beautiful little girls in the world. They are not related to me biologically, but in every other way they are my grandbabies. I love them to pieces. They drive me crazy one minute and steal my heart all the time. I have the privilege of having been part of their sweet little lives since the day they were born and I can’t wait to see how they grow up. Their papa has been in my life since he was twelve years old. And mama well since they got together. They are such an amazing extension of my family and I will never regret them being there for me. This is another beautiful situation God has put into my life.

There are so many more pieces of beauty I enjoy. A mama who is still on this planet ( she just turned 75 years old in April) to start with and one great big amazing family. I have love in my life and a faith in God knowing he is always at my side. What more can I ask for? All I do know is with faith, family and love if I gain nothing else in my life these things are all I need. Everything else is an added bonus.
