I Have Returned!

I bet you thought I fell off
the face of the earth
didn't you...
well pretty close...

The past few weeks have been
filled with ups and downs...
too much so that I couldn't bring myself
to write a thing.

My life has been filled with a sick child, a sick me,
a death in the family, a little bout of the blues ...
which I have struggled with my entire life...
and one of my boys is getting married in 2 weeks
which we just found out about a week ago...
which is a happy event....
but oh my lots to do!

So I picked myself up...and said
okay that's enough...
get on with it...
and so I begin again.

In the times that I am surrounded
by challenges, sorrow and even joy...
I hope to be like a butterfly that emerges from
it's cocoon...
forever changed and grateful
for the life that lies ahead. 


  1. Hello
    Glad to hear your up and around again and feeling like yourself again. It sounds like you have had a lot on your plate and it is tuff sometimes to share or put into words all that is going on...too overwhelming for words!
    Bless you this weekend, and congratulations on your wedding!

  2. You know, sometimes we have no idea what someone else might be going through so it's good when you are able to say something - it let's me know I'm not the only one and I can breathe and say "whew, I was feeling isolated....thanks!" Jennifer jennsthreegraces blogspot

  3. I've been thinking about you. I hope everything is ok Denise. Call if you ever need to talk.:)

  4. Glad to have you back again, Denise and you have been missed here.
    Sorry you have had your ups and downs, life can be like this at times.
    Congratulations on the impending wedding, and hope that all will go well.

    Blessings and hugs to you

  5. Hello Denise, so good to hear from you again! I was beginning to wonder what happened to you! I'm sorry to hear you've had some rough weeks...I know that's life and it happens to all of us...but I hate to hear a friend is going thru some tough times. Sounds like you're charging ahead though and making the best of it all. May God hold you in His embrace and carry you when you need it ~

    Blessings and a big hug!
