The Thought of the Day - 1/15/13

Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? 

Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? 

Did you know the people who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? 

Did you know the people that are the happiest are usually the ones who are in the most pain (physically &/or emotionally)?

Did you know the three hardest things to say are
I love you,
I'm sorry, and
Help me.

A New Year - A New Start

2012 was a very tough year for me and my family.  Between my health issues, my surgeries, my son's mental health problems, and lack of help and support, blogging took a second seat.  Honestly -- though blogging was often on my mind -- I was not able to, physically or emotionally, write the posts and articles needed to keep up with a busy blog.  Sadly, cause of my neglect I lost many most of my readers and blogging friends.

I hope to be up, active, and motivated to keep up with All Things Cherished (as well as my other blogs).

Since we have started a new year, I think it is a great time for a new start.

A New Start

A beginning. ~~ Cassandra, age 11.

Starting a new life or new part of life. ~~ Cameron, age 14.

This new day brings
Another year,
Renewing hope,
Dispelling care.
And may we find
Before the end,
A deep content...
Another friend.
~~ Arch Ward ~~

A New Start For Me

What does a new start mean for me?

My health issues are not overwhelming me, my spells are not taking over my life, my brain is not foggy or confused all day.

My lack of work and lack of a "regular" job doesn't influence my self worth.

My day is full of everyday things like laundry, cleaning, phone calls, computer work, etc. I'm also a Mom to my children . . . I can interact with them, help them with homework, collaborate on what's for dinner, play games with them after chores are done.  This may not seem like much to you, but when you have spells that rule the day and things happen around you that you are totally unaware of, this is a BIG bonus to making the day "normal.  Right now normal is a new thing for our family.

So, trying to find a normal routine and settling into better health options is a new start for me.
