~~ Life is Like a Box of Chocolates ~~




It's the dawning of a new month, time to get back to the world of blogging. I know it's been a while since I've posted. I hope you've missed me as much as I've missed you. With each email and phone call you've all touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. The out pouring of love and kindness has been overwhelming. There has been so much going on around here I felt drawn into myself and not real comfortable sharing. Yes, I've been in quite the funk..trying to adjust to coming changes. These past few weeks have been a challenge for us - - one we're still trying to get our heads around. When I'm more comfortable talking about it I'll share those with you my friends. But for now ----
Remember the movie Forest Gump? One of my favorite lines was given to him by his mother --
"Life is Like a Box of Chocolates You Never Know What You're Going To Get". That pretty well describes things around here. Each day is a new day, one with many changes and challenges one I find I'm facing alone. I know there are others facing other challenges and my thoughts and prayers go out to you. So.. girls the energizer bunny is back. I'll try to post as often as I can, I can't wait to get around to visit all of you. hugs ~lynne~

I describe it as being on a rollercoaster that doesnt stop to let you off. I have turned to blogging as my get away and hopefully for the bits that you are able to visit you too will find some little peice of mind. I realize i have not met you in real life but i just know you are a sweet kind caring person and im thrilled to see you writing on your blog. Anytime you need an ear, please know im here.

Lynne,

I am so grateful to hear from you again. I have thought of you often and I am sending many prayers and hugs off to you.

The best advice I ever heard when I was going through some very troubled waters was "...just keep putting one foot in front of the other". Somehow that truly kept me moving.

I will be tthinking of you sweetie.

xoxo
Jane

Oh Lynne!! I missed you and I'm sooo glad to hear from you! I'm sorry you've had a rough period. I remember at one point in my life just telling myself...all you have to do is make it through the next hour...that's all. And that was about all I could do...but an hour is doable. Just know that you aren't really alone...we are all here praying with and for you while you sort things out. We will be happy to see you whenever you can visit with us!! Hugs to you, my friend...Debbie

Lynne,
I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE BACK!!

I have missed you girl.

Yes, life has some hard bumps, and i know what you mean about not wanting to spot while you feel a bit out of it.
I took a week off for the same reason.

But you are back!! And we are celebrating!!!
And we love you, and want to be there for you.

Let your world of blogging friends know if we can help in any way!!

Bless you my friend,
Barbara Jean

~CC Catherine said...

Sweet Ms. Lynn, I too used this phrase on another blog that I pen at a time when I felt my life was in quicksand., that phrase does seem to encompass truth, from all directions. My prayer is that each day you look to see where God is helping you...sometimes the muck and yuck of our circumstances are so heavy that we can't see him., I know you are a woman of faith...and I am too. I've been in places at times where the weight can be so heavy that it's tough to find him...my prayer is that when and if that happens to you, I pray and know HE will persevere and HE will make himself known as He whispers in your ear...or blows a sweet fragrance across your path, may you know it is from the "I Am"! You are loved, be blessed..and know that many miss you...we'd wait for ions till you come back and post! That's what friends are for...to wait in the wings for those that need space! Hugs and kisses! ~CC Catherine from "Catherine de th`e Cups"

Beth at Aunties said...

Lynne,
You have been very missed. I am so sorry you have had a hard time and pray things just get better.
It is amzing the trials we all face in this life. Some seem to have many more than others, thats when friends step in and help take the burdens off if even for a moment. I pray you can feel the spirit of Lord working miracles in your life. He loves you!
Bless your sweet heart!

Hugs, Beth
