what i've learned along the way
Published on September 2, 2007 By lobsterhunter In Misc
My family and I just finished playing Sequence. After sharing a prayer and a meal together, we pulled up a piece of carpet, and giggled our way through a board game. Chandler, my ten year old step-daughter, seemed to have all the luck, and smiles beamed from the winners' faces after every round. A deep sense of contentment permeated the room.

Now to some people, the above scenario may not seem that unusual, but to a child who grew up in the chaotic world of alcoholism this is a dream come true. Today my world is safe, and my home is peaceful. God heard the cries of my heart, and He gifted me with a family of my own that far exceeds my wildest imagination.

I have been given the privelege of watching my husband be the father I never had. Somehow my heart finds healing as I watch him love his children so completely. Hunter and Chandler are blessed to have such a dedicated daddy, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a healthy family unit.

My life is better than good, and tonight I choose to soak it all in . .

What a great entry here to read on JU.

I'm glad for you. Sounds like you are counting your blessings one by one.

The bad times will always come around, but these good times help you in those bad times. It's like making a bank deposit. Later when you have to make withdrawels, you have something in the bank to cushion you.

For now keep soaking it up and making those deposits.

Sequence is fun isn't it?!  My son and I have played it and enjoyed it immensely,  I think was it truly the best part is the laughing and good feelings that come out.

Glad to hear another persons' life is stable and happy after living in chaos...way to go!

Yes,  my life too is good.  Any day I can walk to the kitchen to make toast and coffee,  and see the sunrise,  I too am blessed
