ATTITUDE AND OPPORTUNITIES

This past week has not been the best...we had to put our 15 year old sheltie "Clementine" to sleep ....she had really gone down hill for the past several months and we finally realized that her existence here was simply just that, an existence ...no life at all of any quality in her sweet little body....
and once again the big , bad , ugly monster inside Melinda 's body is slowly sucking the life out of her....NOT FAIR...NOT FAIR...NOT FAIR....
several years ago I was whining to my mom Judy about something that wasn"t going right or something that was happening to me that I was frustrated about and the eternal optimist she is quickly told me that those were opportunities....so when things aren't always going exactly my way I have to figure out exactly what lesson someone is trying to teach me and turn it into an opportunity...we all have opportunities everyday to change an attitude...make someone feel important...to share a smile....to help someone who is a whole lot less fortunate than us...so with that said I am working on my attitude this week....trying to make my way through the fog of unfairness....and change the world one upside down frown at a time!!!!!

Amy, My prayer for you is to feel the presence of God and experience His peace during this time. May He surround Melinda and give her the comfort that can only come from Him and His power. Cancer is ruthless, but God ultimately wins and one day Melinda will be whole and healthy and in his presence. Praise God!

I'm so, so sorry for your sadness. Thinking about you and your family a lot...

Praise God! Melinda is no longer in pain and now in the presence of her heavenly Father. May He wrap His arms around you and your family (and her family) as you walk thru this valley! Love you!
