You Lifted Me Up

Bonita nominated me for this wonderful award today. It is called, Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Is this not the cutest little picture on this award?

Thank you so much Bonita, for thinking of me when you were nominating awards.

Do you realize that I have now been blogging for nine weeks? I was so sad and down every day because it was just me and Al. God brought me to this site. I don’t know how he did it, but he knew that here, I would be able to have christian brothers and sisters. He knew that I would never walk this journey with my brother, Al, ever again. He made everything perfect for me. The perfect settings, the perfect friends, and the perfect support. I am so blessed. I don’t even want to use the word lucky, because luck has nothing to do with this. For anyone who thinks there is no God, all you have to do is look at me. Look at the situation of caring for a brother, and adult man, over six-foot tall, and over two hundred pounds. I have watched him stumble and fall, fall into a Christmas tree, fall into his closet doors, breaking the mirrors, falling into me, running into the furniture. I have watched him not be able to climb over the bath tub any longer. I have watched him not be able to dress himself, or get out of a chair. I have seen so many tears shed, tremors take over his entire body. All this I have done alone, until God sent me here. On top of all the wonderful people I have met, I am even blessed more with these wonderful awards. I still have trouble seeing the stories that you see when you read them. For me, it is struggles in my life, trying to survive, trying to keep Al out of a nursing home as long as I can. God bless you Bonita, for this award. God bless all of you for allowing me into your lives.

This doesn’t say that I have to tell anything of myself, I need  to nominate people who would love this as much as I do. How can I do this? I think everyone would love it! I will nominate a few now.

  1. Wow, for a new blogger, nine weeks doesn’t feel like it at all. I could have sworn you’ve been doing this for much longer as you are one of the blogs that captivates me with each post. Wow! Much deserved recognition of your amazing site and sights! 😀
