A Test of time's, I believe

I am more convinced that thing's do happen for a reason, like today I had to pay a BIG bill and that left us somewhat low on cash, so this means chinsy dinner's and as I was shopping at a local discount store for deal's I thought about those that are so less fortunate then me, I do get to eat everyday, I have a warm bed and clean cloth's, hot water to take my long luxary shower with, a few people I know came to my mind and I thought how do they do it all the time? I told Amanda "I think we are going through a rough time for a very good reason, maybe I need to stop taking thing's for granted, and this is not just happing to your Dad and I, but to and John as well" Yes dinner was chisney but we got to eat something more then some people in this town can do, so now I am sure I will look at the homeless so differently, I use to tell my kid's when we'd see homeless people on the corner begging for food or money, " I think they are angel's in discuise and think God has put them here to test us" I would never give them money but I would buy them a meal from a fast food place that was close by. I then think about my Mom raising me on her own for a long time, working 3 job's all to make end's meet, how did she do it, I am complaing over this little hurdle that I can get through, one day god will remind me of this time and remind me of how he brought me through this and the lesson I learned from it. So, yes Lord I can make a meal out of hotdog's if you want me too, and I DO love you, no matter what you throw at me.

Love you Annette. I remember eating blackeye peas and cornbread almost every night when I was a little girl and then going to my grandmothers on Sunday. She would kill a chicken and boy was that a treat. I still love blackeye peas and as long as I can grow a tomato to go with them I'll be fine. :) you will too.
