I have one thought for today:

Psalm 71:1
In You, O Lord, I take refuge.

I am still alive, but it is still really hard right now. I am fighting hard to make things better. I will be back again. I will.

Love Always, Nita

Nita, Life can be so hard at times. Like you, I've been going through some stuff again... but there is always hope. Keep fighting and try to stay strong! You have friends who care.

I am so glad to see you post, Nita. I think about you all the time, and was worried when you were gone so long. I pray things will get better.

I am so happy to hear from you.
I know the past couple of years have been hell for you and hard to function but remember God only gives you what you can handle and you can handle this.
You are always in my prayers.
Big Hugs to you and Elizabeth

Veronica A. Shoffstall quote

“After awhile you learn
the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love
doesn't mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses
aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises.
And you begin to accept
your defeats with you head up and your eyes open.
With the grace of maturity,
not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on
because tomorrow's
ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling
down in mid-flight.
After awhile you learn that
even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can
That you really are
And that you really do have
And you learn
and learn
and learn ....
With every goodbye
you learn.”

found this recently and fell in love with it , think about you and your daughter often.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
