I am finally back. It was a long summer and fall, but now my life has started to settle down, at least for now. I have not been faithful with writing and even have not been focusing on the food pantry. Sometimes life comes at you and just when you think you are through it God reminds you that He is charge. When that happens all anyone can do is pray and have faith that there is a purpose for all the struggles.
My summer and fall were not all struggles, I had some great times too. My plan now is to focus on my faith, family and using my recent experiences with life to help others.
Thanksgiving just passed and I was able to spend a lot of time with my family. A relative was asking all the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up. The kids were all saying the typical answers, not sure, cheerleader ( my 7 year old daughter), teacher and then it was my son's turn. My 3 year old without hesitation said loud and proud "I want to be an Army guy!!".
