Friday's Quote

"You can be whatever you make up your mind to be."
Robert Collier

What I want to be....What I want to be ...when I grow up to be big me!
I remember singing this song with Andrea when she was in preschool. It seems just yesterday! Oh, How I miss those days!
Now she is in college working her way into nursing school. I am so proud of her!

Have you thought about what you want to be? Are you what you want to be?
I am constantly working toward the a goal to be the "best wife, best mom, best friend". I must admit that I have lacked in all areas. I keep trying to do better...but sometimes I feel like the rat in the cage spinning the wheel. Working hard to get somewhere but, going nowhere. I think I must have a bad attitude today. I must stop "the stinking thinking".

When I saw this quote it jumped out at me. What does Darlene want to be?
What does God want me to be? How can I improve to be that person? What changes can I work on to be a better wife, mom and friend?

What about you? Have you wondered these same things?
I know change is going to happen whether you are ready or not. It will happen. My life has changed so much in the past months that I think "What in the world is going on?" We knew some of these changes would come as Andrea grew older and I feel like I have embraced some of the changes...others I really need to work on.

Update: The job I am currently working at school ...I found out will not offer me benefits after they told me it would. I thought the door that opened for me was where God wanted me.. after not receiving the benefits I am now wondering if this is the right door to walk through. I need clear direction in this. Pray for God to give me clear direction.
Due to other happenings in life I have not been able to catch up on the blogs like I had planned. I hope to catch up in the upcoming weeks.
Starting on Monday....I will be leading a class at church .... I am very excited about this and looking forward to hear what God will be teaching me.
Andrea is doing good. Enjoying the college life and loves going to the football games. I thinks she has finally come to her senses and is now a "ROLL TIDE" fan. She thought she would be able to stay true to Auburn.... she was brainwashed to be an Auburn fan when she was about 3 years old by my neice who was attending Auburn University at the time. Continue to pray for her...

My Friday's Quote turned into several things.
I appreciate the encouragement and prayers...

Yes I wonder this all the time. It seems that no matter what, life just keeps on changing my path. It is rough trying to be the best at everything. I know how that goes. I figure just trying to do the best we can hopefully will get us to where we should be.

I will continue to pray for this job situation. This really is a great post.

Hang in there, he will make your path clear.
