we made it. life. hip hop and more.

it is actually late wednesday night. 
i am preparing my blog post for HIP HOP THURSDAY
....and my heart is at peace.

a feeling that has eluded me for a very, very, very LONG time. 
i have read every quote about "being right where you should be" as i experienced months of struggle  february 2010.....
i was thrown onto the crazy train.
it was so STRANGE.  one minute i was just riding along peacefully
{choo! choo!} 
...and then ALL OF A SUDDEN the crazy train went ZOOMING  BY and KIDNAPPED ME!
{the nerve}

behind the scenes.
 i have been a wreck.
{i HOPE you couldn't tell}

just about broke me.

struggle ensued around every corner.
around the corner i also witnessed...
love. compassion. encouragement. laughter. support. unconditional friendship.
just when i thought that i was not going to make it one more step...
....someone said something that kept me going.
typically it was one of YOU.
a blog comment
a facebook encouragement.
a personal email.
a hug.
a smile.

piece of the puzzle
came together.

i SO WISH you were all sitting right here with me in my living room so i could share my story.
what has happened in the last 4 months could fill a novel...
and the fact it ALL IS BEAUTIFUL in this moment...
it really is a miracle. 
i believe in miracles
is that every SINGLE one of you experience miracles - one after the other. 

this i can tell you.
....and we intend to run it with heart and soul
....simply because we want to and WE CAN!

Speaking of Heart & Soul.
i have TWO design TEAMS!
both as people
as crafty chicks.

EVERY THURSDAY there is a Unity/ {ippity} BLOG HOP.
STARTING at Midnight Central Time.
just push the button
and you are 

Be sure to visit Unity at Splitcoast!
Prizes, Fun, Challenges and Chit Chat!
every single thursday.

Angela, I am unaware of your 'life stresses' but I will say that your post touched me and I will take your wish for 'miracles' for all. I have been struggling with 'enjoying' my family as I am so unhappy with having to move to AK due to my husbands job. But reading your post tonite has made me realize that we all have issues and life's challenges and I better be making the best of what I have been given.
Thank you. best wishes to you and glad to hear a light is shining bright for you.

Hi Angela, only when you eluded to something going on could i guess that you were struggling.
I have always found inspiration from your journaling and the sharing of yourself.
It gives me hope! I am older than you (by alot!teehee) and do not feel as put together and as wise. I do as well believe in Miracles. Sometimes I guess we just have to quite ourselves enough to see them or hear them. You share a Miracle with us each time you write and that is the Miracle of you!

I will pray for our Lords Peace for you and the feeling that you have today!

May you and your Family continue to be Blessed with His Love and Peace!

Tanya said...

I think we have all be thrown on that crazy train at some time in our lives... I'm happy to hear that your miracle has emerged!
Thank you so much for bringing Hip Hop back!!! I loved today's inspiration!

What you wrote was very heartfelt and inspirational! It's funny but I have not had the time to spend on your blog lately but came here today and read this. WOW! It made my heart sing to hear you had your miracle. Thanks!

Hope you write an autobiography...because this sure was cryptic! Hang in there! Maybe a book would inspire others...give it some thought!

Tanis said...

I am so glad that you've found peace. I have been on that crazy train myself! In fact, I think it's heading 'round the bend toward me now...

Suz said...

Your post really moved me today Angela. I'm so sorry you have been struggling but with struggles we get the opportunity to see God move in our lives & use us. Boy did he use you today with that inspiring post.

Hugs & hope the rest of the year is a piece of cake

"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and may God always hold you in the palm of His hand."

One of my favorite verses that came to mind after reading your post!
You are awesome, your DT's are awesome, and I feel so happy to have Unity in my life! Thank you for the neverending inspiration!
Hugs, Nora Anne
