As you know, each week my crochet team posts a question about which we are asked to blog. This is to help us get some insight into each other since we are from all over the world.

This week's question is "What Song Best Describes Your Life?"
Another conundrum! Actually there are so many that fit different times in my life but I guess the best would be "I Hope You Dance" sung by Lee Ann Womack.

Although my life has been a roller coaster of ups and downs (with many many downs), there has always been a strength inside me, even as a child, I never understood. I now know it was the Lord who was holding me in His loving arms and helped me through the worst of times and blessed me with the most wonderful husband, John. 

With the help of our Lord, John and I became the parents of two sons and now have a beautiful daughter-in-law Bridgett who is married to BJ and blessed us with 3 wonderful grandsons. Our son Brian will be wed to Shelby in January of 2011. Our blessings are growing in abundance.

This is a very brief summary of my life because it would take too long and I would never want to subject anyone to that! Just know that whatever challenge was placed before me, I always knew that with GOD by my side, we could accomplish anything!  And so far, I have not been let down.

There are still difficult times and challenges, but I have faith, and in that faith, I choose to dance :0)

The past is the past, the future is not here yet, we must enjoy the moment of today, that's why it's called the "present".

If you have a moment, just copy and paste this link, close your eyes if you like and just listen to the words sung so beautifully.  It may help you too when times are a bit challenging.

Yes, we should never forget what blessings we have in our life and dance with them. As I wrote earlier, past is sometihng which we can choose to keep it a past or carry it into the present and future and spoil the wonderful life in front of us and in future. I choose to keep it a past justl ike you, Marianne. I'm really glad we met.
