Wow, can I just say a huge than you all you caring beings out there. Sorry that I haven't managed to reply individually to each and everyone. Things have been a bit hectic and still are. Just when I feel like I'm standing strong againg, I get knocked back down but I've got God on my side to pick me up and keep nudging me along my path in life. (Yes that is me in the back of my sister's new car ~ but thats all your going to see of me for just now~ until I pluck up the courage to share my full picture with you. hehe)
Had an amazing weekend at The Crieff Hydro Hotel last weekend with all the family for my grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary. A well needed few days of rest and relaxation. But back to the real world, benefits to claim, forms to fill in .........
I am coping with my new situation. Yes there are moments I feel like asking God, why me? I just wanted a nice simple life. I thought you'd given me enough in one lifetime to deal with. But no, here you go again....
But I just take a step back and am sooooooo grateful for the opportunity he has given me to be on my own and truly search for who Charlotte is and what she is here on the this earth to do. I wasn't really able to do that before. But now I'm free.
I'm only 21 but we never know if tomorrow is going to be our last day so........ from now on, I'm going to take hold of every opportunity to make a difference to the lives of others. I was given a second chance in life and now am free (from a partner) to give and to help others.
The main man in my life right now is Murray, he keeps me going and smiling. Children are so innocent and we have a lot to learn from them. I mean a lot. At church today, he made so many people smile just by clapping and dancing to the music. You can't put a price on that! You really can't.
Finally, before I go and tidy up the trail of toys and clothes that Murray has left today, I thought I'd let you know, HOPE AND FAITH is going to be coming at you from a slightly different slant. I want to help others and if by sharing with you what I learn each day, helps atleast one person, then thats my job done. Yes I'll still tell you stories of our day to day life in the country and show you pretty pictures of china tea cups and strawberry jam antics, but the main emphasis of this blog will be LIFE and how to live it (in the eyes of Charlotte atleast)
Bless you all and thank you again for all your supporting words.
SO much love
