a little bit of this and that...

A few posts ago I shared how much I had on my plate for the next couple of weeks and how overwhelmed I feel trying to get everything done. Well, wouldn't you know it... I think I'm catching a cold and hopefully it's only a cold because it looks like Don has come down with pneumonia. If you feel so inclined, please say a prayer for our health.

Since all I want to do is go to bed (and it's only 10:15), I'm just going to share a couple of things. This was my mother's day present from Don. I know, I know... I'm not his mama. But as he would way, I am the mother of his children =)

It's a Blackberry Pearl. I've never had such a fancy phone. I can get the internet on it! So if I really wanted to (and let's face it, some times I do), I can look at my blog - or your blog. I also like being able to check my email. It's very nice and I love it. Thank you my dear.

And Mighty Mom posted this video the other day in dedication to me (she is so sweet). She picked up on the fact that I'm feeling the weight of being at a crossroad in my life. The lyrics are beautiful and the video difinitely lifted my spirits. Thank you so much, Sarah.

Lyrics:
When everybody's in and you're left out
And you feel drowning in a shadow of the dawn
Everyone's a miracle in their own way
Just listen to yourself not what other people say
When it seems you're lost alone and feeling down
Remember everybody's different, just take a look around

Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you got to believe
That right here right now you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Be who you want to be, be who you are
Everyone's a hero, everyone's a star

When you want to give up and your heart's about to break
Remember that you're perfect, God's make no mistakes

Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you got to believe
That right here right now you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far (I say welcome)
Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far (welcome)

Maybe we're all different
But we're still the same
We all got the blood of Eden running to our veins
I know sometimes it's hard for you to see
You're caught between just who you are and who you want to be

If you feel alone and lost and need a friend
Remember every new beginning is some beginning's end

Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you got to believe
That right here right now you're exactly where you're supposed to be
Welcome to wherever you are


Oh, and this post won me a USB Flash Drive from 5 Minutes For Mom. It was one of 10 winners from the Motherhood Moments themed contest.

Congrats on the prize!!!

I couldn't get the video to play (and not on mightymom's either) but the lyrics are sweet. I really like the line "Welcome to wherever you are"

Sweetie, hang in there! And that is some gift. I can barely work my own phone, which is about 30 years old in cool cell phone years. :-)

A Blackberry pearl - wow. I'm happy for you.

You are a winner, period. I love reading that you have won something.

Melissa said...

Wait - is that Bon Jovi?? What a wonderful song!! A great message for all of us :)
And the phone? That is awesome! I need a new phone... I want a Blackberry, but will probably end up getting something that I will be able to work ;)

Just Mom said...

Wow. Nice Blackberry. Very fancy schmancy.

Congrats on the win, and please get well soon.

I surely agree with your winning on that post. I thought it was great when I first read it. Sorry you're feeling down. I'll post that on the prayer blog, since you haven't. What wonderful lyrics. I'd not heard that before.

I will pray for good health for both of you.

Love your new blackberry. Saweet.

Mary@notbefore7 said...

OOOO! Congrats. How exciting.

Love the phone.

I hope your heart continues to be comforted as you all face this time of transition. God is working and purposing at all times...it isn't just "transition to the next thing"...you are EXACTLY where He wants you RIGHT NOW!

That phone is awesome and I'm totally jealous. My hubby has his Blackberry attached to his hip 24/7, but occasionally he lets me read things on it..I want one, too!! That said, I have no reason for something like that at this point :)

Hope you guys are feeling better.
