Help for Hire

Hello everyone in blogland!!!!!

See my sign?
The red one with the big white letters?
That's the one.

It's for me.
I know that I was bummed out about my job
but I thought about the positive.
I'm available for hire.
No....not as a nurse
but as an apprentice.
Slave labor....
okay,maybe not slaaaavvvee labor
but free assistance.

My number one goal is to
be a vendor at Warrenton in the fall.
I've got the stuff and the vision.
What I don't have is the experience.

So, since I'm a lady of leisure
that doesn't have to worry about vacation time
or sick days....
I thought that I could come and help
whoever would love to have some assistance
and see how things are behind the scenes.

I have my own camper and all of my amenities.
I can help with setting up, selling, and just my
general good company are available at your
beck and call.

If anyone would like an assistant
or "fetcher" or prn sales girl...
I'm your woman!!!!

Besides, who can resist a face like this??

(Don't answer that...)

In God We Trust

Do you see that word above?

The one in big Scrabble tiles?

That's what I need right now.
I need to trust.

I was just notified that I have been terminated
from my position in the ER due to my health.
This sucks....big time.
Nursing is the only thing that I have ever wanted to do
since I was a child.
I believe it is my calling.
So, to not only lose my position
but not know if I can work in my position again really hurts.

I believe that God has a bigger plan for me
but I need to trust him.
I am very scared and extremely hurt.
I've worked my whole life in nursing.
So now what do I do?

Mr. M tells me to stop crying because it will be okay.
I don't know how to stop.
I'm mad.
I don't want to be sick anymore.
I want my life back.

I can't even read what I'm typing for the tears and snot running down my face.
I'm just that hurt.

I know that as a Christian, I'm supposed to have an accepting spirit.
Please forgive me if I don't have one right now....

I'm still human..
I'm still a young woman...

I still have a husband and children
who I can no longer care for.
I still want to laugh and run and play
and provide for my family.

I don't want to be stared at anymore
or hear whispers when I limp by.
I want to be able to go  and spend timewith my friends and family
instead of laying on my couch because I'm too weak.

I want to see my daughter sing at school
and not just hear her through the phone
because I am in so much pain.

I want to care for people
and not be cared for.

But I have to trust HIM.
I know that  God has a plan for me
and I need to trust that His will is the best.

I'm sorry for this bummy post.
I just needed to vent.

It's Mind Blogging

Or is that mind blowing????

This week has been pretty busy here
at the Six house.

After being awakened by my sis
Six Divided By Two...aka Misty,
to inform me that a good bloggy friend of ours
wrote this amazing and soul stirring blog.

I have to admit that I was saying "Amen"
out loud while reading it.
Sis and I were so inspired by this moving blog
that we felt the need to start a new revelation
in blogging.

To blog for what matters to us
and not be concerned with just the numbers.
To stand out in the crowd and be as unique
as we were meant to be.
We decided to share our passion
to be individual
with fellow bloggers who share the same zeal.

We, the Six Sisters, created this.

The "Not a Stepford Blog" award
 was created to celebrate those who buck the
blogging society and are true to themselves
and their blog.

Misty has already bestowed her award to several
fine bloggers out there and now it's my turn.

First and foremost, I have to award Debbie of Talking Trash.
Debbie is my fairy blog mother who dares to go where most
bloggers will never venture and she is hysterical in the process.

Second, I'd like to award The Texas Woman.
She has the courage of ten men and her
Tuesday posts will have you in stitches!

Third is Adrienne from The Flying Bee.
I love how she decided to totally take a new direction
with her blog and went for it!!!
The results were amazing.

Fourth is my girl Lulu Kellog.
Not only does Lulu make the most amazing jewelry
and crafts, but she has a dark side to her that I just love.
I mean c'mon...everyone can't be rainbows and unicorns EVERY day.

Last, but not least, is Gypsy Nurse from Writing Out Loud.
Her blogs are fun and inspiring as well as insightful.
This is a woman who is not afraid to put herself out there
and be transparent for the world.
I love her for that!!!!

If you have never met these talented women
please stop by and say hello.
I promise that you won't be disappointed
as they are all unique and amazing.

If you are one of the recepients of this award,
I hope that you will pass it on
to another blogger that you feel is different and wonderful
in their own unique way.

I'll Love You Forever

I'll love you forever.

I'll like you for always.

As long as I'm living....

My baby you'll be.

Yesterday was a day met with mixed emotions for me.
My oldest son, Alexander, turned eighteen years old.
As I look back over these last eighteen years,
all I can think is
"Where did they go?"

Where is the baby that I held in my arms
and counted all of his fingers and toes?

Where is the baby who had colic
and constantly cried and I prayed to God to get me through it?

I eventually got through colic, first steps,
first day of school and so many other milestones in his young life.

All though he is a teenager through and through...
(He calls me a dinosaur....geesh)
I am sooooooooo proud of the man that he has
grown up to be.

He continues to amaze me
as he still has firsts in his life and how beautifully he takes
everything in stride.

Happy Birthday kiddo!!!
We made it......

 I didn't post any baby pictures up
as promised.

(I'm saving those for graduation...)
