Plan B

We may be on Plan A right now, or maybe it's been Plan B for so long that I don't remember what Plan A was...our life has had lots of ups and down. There have been many times when things didn’t go as planned. Or at least as I had planned them! Many times our life was turned upside down with job transfers, unforeseen circumstances or just what most people know as LIFE. My plans, my visions, and my dreams came to a screeching halt as circumstances spun out of my control. At least I thought I was in control. As many lists as I made, as carefully as I planned...sometimes the day just unfolds differently. Sometimes it wasn't what I asked for or expected!

Our daughter and family are navigating the murky waters of a move right now and I hope that we can help. One thing for sure, there will be a lot of worry and stress along the way.

Life is messy, and unpredictable, and it's rarely a smooth ride. You just have to step out in faith knowing that somehow it will all work out just fine. Sometimes you just have to jump into the water, then pray and paddle as fast as you can!


  1. One day at a time is the way I go now...be happy...no worries..

  2. Hoe right you are..!!
    You gott'a just Jump!!


  3. Amen, Sistah.
    You don't have to live very long to realize the more flexible you can be the less stress you will have. I keep reminding myself of this simple truth again & again. It's a tough one to learn.

  4. In my life I've discovered that as incredibly awful as the lows can be, they just make the highs that much sweeter.

  5. Living our lives is bound to give us Vertigo now and then, but somehow we manage to keep on going. I hope your daughter's move goes smoothly. I always hate the packing part. How about you?

  6. Ain't that the truth! Sometimes when we think things are going just the way we'd planned...a stick gets in the wheel and off we go on another direction. Good luck to your daughter and family...I hope they won't be moving too far away from you. Enjoy your day as best you can...Maura :)

  7. Hoping all will go smoothly even if unseen....

  8. Turn your eyes & hearts upward ... I'll lift you all in prayer.

    Would you send me your email, I have some fabulous pics that you all may enjoy, particularly your husband. My email is ~



  9. PS You may enjoy my write today, Joycee. Hugs, Marydon

  10. Simplistic as it sounds, when I am able to turn my stresses over to Creator, things always seem to turn out all right . . . eventually . . . although it doesn't always seem that way when I'm in the throes of a "situation."
