~~..::BLOG CANDY!!::..~~

Well.. My life has not gone in the direction I would like it to.. I thought 2009 was going to would be good for me, but there hasn't been any change.. I know we are only 9 days in, but if these 9 days are off.. Then I can only imagine what the rest of the year holds for me.. I'm trying to stay positive about it.. But it's really hard when you are thrown curve balls at every angle!..

But anywhooo.. enough woah is me!,lol...

It's blog candy time... This is my first ever time doing blog candy and my first RAK of 2009... I was so shocked when I walked into a Walmart about 15 minutes from my house that I never knew was there and still in the Christmas clearance section there sat.. tons of Martha Stewart Christmas glitters and stamps.. I couldn't believe it... I had a messageboard member send me the Gingerbread men stamps.. but this Walmart had tons of them... Thank you sooo much (You know who you are,lol.. wink)

Well here's the blog candy.. Just leave me a comment.. send me prayers.. (I need them!,lol) and you will be entered! This will end on Saturday January 10, 2009 at 8pm EST.... Okay.. Okay.. Didn't realize I put December, but thanks to those that have good eyes.. That would be one long blog candy giveaway!..LMAO!

I'm sorr you are off to a rough start this year. We went through that 2 years ago and I can't believe all the things that happened. But we got through it and I know you will too. What really helped me the most was prayer and counting my blessings.
Praying for you!

Linda from Vegas said...

Maybe the first 9 days were just a test. When things get tough for me I ask myself this question. "Is this a test?" And I answer my self "Do I want to pass or fail? " And every time I say to myself " I'll be damned if I am gona fail! I am going to pass" It gives me a lot of strength to keep going. It's become my mantra. I'll give it to you and let you use it. Put it on your mirror so you see it first thing in the morning.

Well, I know how it is with all those curve balls. Just don't lose your faith, sweets!! God will never give you more than you can handle...sometimes you just have to look up to him and say "seriously????" and then try to chuckle. We have such a kind and wonderful, POWERFUL God, that I am convinced that he will see you through...and it will only make you stronger!!!! God bless darlin'... (((HUGZ 2 U)))

metalback said...

Soft, what you think about, comes about. Remember the Law of Attraction. If you think and live positive.....good things will come to you. It works. I will keep you in my thoughts for a better year. It has started off for a few of my friends also. It will get better. Sending a big hug to you. Love your picture by the way. You may be feelin down sistah.........but you look MAAAVOLUS!!!

Matthewsmommy said...

Here's to a great year ahead of us. Remember we are all here and we can all take the curve balls. That's what we do best.

Thanks for sharing with us all.

I am sorry that the year is off to a rough start for you. Keep thinking positive thoughts and I am sure it will turn itself around. Who knows maybe next year, you will be living in sunny Colorado like me.

When all else fails, go in that beautiful scrap room and shut the world out for awhile.
