It has been a long time since my last post, so I thought I would fill you all in on how life has been going.
Since the last time I posted I started having pain from my endometriosis again. I went to my doctor ,and after a lot of issues, ended up having a hysterectomy in November. It was a sad thing for me, but I couldn't deal with the pain any longer....We had many hard hits in our lives last year. Some were very personal. Some were shared by others... I think one of the hardest hits was when my children's Sensei passed away, due to a major car accident. It still hurts to think about him. He was an amazing man. He loved life, family, friends, but most of all he loved God. He was one of the kindest people you could ever meet. He was very sincere, and open. He was also extremely funny. The children had a blast in his classes. But, he was also stern , when he had to be. The children listened to him, and respected him. They all adored him, and miss him greatly. I don't think anyone could ever take his place. R.I.P. Chief Instructor, Jerod Hicks. We love you and will see you in Heaven one day....
Another thing that we dealt with, for the past few years, was trying to get out of the neighborhood we were in. Things had gone down hill fast, and were only getting worse. Well, God answers in his own time and way. We decided to put our house on the market in November, and we closed on it last Friday. Our closest friends are missionaries in India, and they needed new tenants. Well, we needed a new home. It worked out! God is good!
I feel that all of the trials we went through this past year, God has given us many blessings in return. He never leaves us. We are reminded in all this beauty around us that He is always near. I am so thankful for all God has given to us. All Christ has done for us, and how the Holy Spirit has guided us. Thank you all for stopping by, God's Blessings be upon you and your household.
