This ‘Reblog Wednesday’ comes from Dr. Perry, his blog is so motivational. Do you ever go about your day questioning certain things in your life? Do you ever get them answered, perhaps some you do, while others you don’t. This quote reminds me of how there have been too many times to count the days where my questions go unanswered. At times I question many things most often when I’m in a doctor’s appointment waiting to be called, during an MRI exam or a CT Scan, etc. These specific events always take me back to a place I often don’t like to revisit. In particular the why’s of my Chiari and Syringomyelia diagnosis, why not, after all, I am that 1 in 1,000. And maybe this isn’t the case for you, maybe you have unanswered questions about the loss of a job, heartbreak, a breakup, a medical diagnosis for yourself or someone you know, whatever the case maybe, this quote comes to relieve you of that stress. I am a true believer that in God’s hands is where it all must go, and with this comes freedom.
Freedom is, when you stay in the now and leave tomorrow for tomorrow.
And as the quote continues to read, ‘there may very well be no perfect answer.’ He’s absolutely right, as stubborn as I am, even if I did get an answer as to why I am that 1 in 1,000 the answer may very well not be enough for me.

If I can’t change my diagnosis, at least I can change my perspective.
If you’ve had a job outside the home and you’re now a stay at home mom or parent, you know that the decision didn’t come too easy. Do you stay home or you continue to work?! Your decision, to leave the 9 to 5 to become a stay at home mom. I went through this roller coaster of emotions about 12 years ago, when I left the corporate world to stay at home with my oldest daughter. It was a tough decision but it was also a very good one.
Joanne from No Plate Like Home captured this so well about the transition, all the emotions and all the changes that occur during this change.
Hope you enjoy the post as much as I did!
You did it. You quit your job to become a stay at home mom. Now that you’ve figured out how to live on one income and all of the logistics, you are starting to feel what it’s really like being home day-in and day-out. 1,970 more words

This poem, written by My Li’l Place just moved my heart, to say the least. It describes the love of one sibling to another. I took so many things from it, for what it may seem like a simple poem, it took me back to my younger years. I’m one of three, we grew up quickly, took on adult responsibilities at a young age. The oldest being my brother, he took care of us younger ones like only a loving brother would do. He wouldn’t complain nor whine, he just did what needed to be done. Do you have that sibling, perhaps cousin, that means the world to you?! I would only hope we all have that special person that helped mold us into who we are today.
We are all adults now, he’s a missionary for the church with his family of 7 in Minnesota while the rest of us have remained in Florida. No matter the miles, the distance between us I’m so grateful for his prayers for me, for my health, my family and my little ones.
My Li’l Place thank you again for sharing such a lovely poem.
Have a great Wednesday!
The room is now empty, the bed half made An empty shampoo bottle lies forlorn on the floor The gray ottoman returned to its quiet empty corner Where your black luggage had recently sat in a bloated slump, half unzipped
