Happy Labor Day to all of you..............

There's a saying that a Mother is only as happy as her saddest child.  I have a adult child that brought me some painful news this week and it's not over and there's hope and faith but it shook me and my foundation pretty good.  I haven't posted or blogged or even read emails.  I've just done what I've always done when the storms of life have hit me......I keep active and distract my mind from thinking too much.  I've done all I can for now except continue to pray and have faith that "whatever God brings you to he'll bring you through".  I am sad though so my usual joyful blogging and commenting would be hard to "fake" and who wants "fake bloggers"? But on the other hand no one wants to hear about problems either...I'm sure you all have plenty of your own! LOL! I will return slowly but surely.  I just need to get my balance.
I sometimes wonder if we're all given a certain amount of joy and sadness when we're delivered to earth and once it's gone that's it.  I would hope that it all balances out in the end but who knows.  I hope you are all well and enjoying the last weekend of Summer (unofficial) and that the crisp cool days of Fall will be upon us soon.  It was 95 here today and humid since Isaac came through but on the plus side there's no more fire danger!  Stay well my friends and be as happy as you can for as long as you can! 


  1. Keep your faith Sam, and I hope your son's troubles will be better soon.

  2. Hang in there Sam. Keeping busy does help us not to dwell on problems. Sending a hug your way (( ))

  3. Hi Sam..
    Praying for you that all will be alright.
    Prayers, keeping busy, staying faithful.. things to help us get through the rough patches in life.
    And, friends.
    You know you have a friend in me, and you can pour out your heart to me... just email.

    Your friend..

  4. Sam
    I will be praying for your situation with your son. God is faithful and he will bring you through it all.
    I somehow thought once my children were grown the headaches would too, but I've found it's a lifetime thing.
    Bless you-Kimberly

  5. So sorry to hear that life has handed you lemons just now. Hang in there hunni, we're all rooting for you and your family x

  6. Life is just not fun sometimes. It is very hard having adult children..the mothering instinct to fix everything just doesn't work like it did when they were two. Sending you a hug:)

  7. I know what you are feeling when family news is not good news. I have trouble with faith in those situations. Praying for you. It has been hot and humid here too.
