Life is like a book with many
Some tell of tragedy
are dull and ordinary
others intense and exciting
The Key to being
a success in life
is to never stop on a difficult page
to never quit on a touch chapter
Champions have the courage
to keep turning the pages
because they know better chapters lie ahead.
My life is like a book, some chapters I have had control of and some chapters have been written by others, and yet I had to go through each chapter to make me the person I am today, a person who when I look in the mirror......... I like........... Maggie asked me to do a blog and what better way to introduce myself............ but with a story this is my story.
Once upon a time a long, long time ago a little girl was born in a town in the middle of England and her name was Karen Elizabeth, when she was 8 years old her parents decided to go on an adventure to deepest, darkest Africa.......... her father had always been a restless spirit..... they arrived in the land of sunshine with three daughters , aged 4,8 and 12, five suit cases, five hundred pounds and a mountain of hope and dreams ......................
Karen Elizabeth was a very shy girl and spent most of her growing up years a bright red colour.....her parents send her to an all girls school, which did nothing about her ability to mix with the opposite sex..........
After school a stay in England forced her to get over her shyness and taught her how to communicate with people, but she had very few boyfriends so when Prince Charming arrived at the castle gates she fell madly in love............ did not think of the things that a union require, friendship, similar hobbies, the ability to communicate , they say that the chemical reaction called love lasts 2 years and then it is all about the foundation that was built, and it is sad that her union was built on the sand, which slowly washed away, grain by grain and although almost 30 years later they parted ways....... he was always her first and only love the problem was he was not prepared to be her knight in shining armour, he only wanted her to be his slave...............
During the union of these two people two beautiful daughters were born, both brought up by their mother to be independent free thinking girls, who could look after themselves, and who would stand up to anyone or anything that might come across their paths. Both completely different from one another Kira the sensible one, the artistic one, the sensitive one, and Kayla the people person, will try anything, will do anything, will speak to anyone, so different in nature and yet so alike in their values, their dislike of unfairness their dislike for people taking advantage, their constant support for the underdog .....................
God started worked in her life, and took her to places where she never thought possible, doing church services, organising woman's retreats and ladies tea's......... this from someone who was more at home in the boardroom, her nicknames, Iron Lady, the Ice princess, Cruelle de Villa..... someone who went back to work when her children were a few weeks old , who hated children's parties, who never had a conversation about nappies, or vomit or sleepless nights............all of this was to get her ready for the changes that were to come....... changes that would turn her world upside down, and yet the right way up............... .....
He brought into her life, an abundance of friends who cared about her, and for her, who took her into their hearts and into their lives, so that she could begin to build a new life for herself.
And as all fairy tales end, she will live happily ever after, there will be a knight who will ride up on his white horse, and look after her............... because she knows it is what she deserves, and because she knows she is worthy.................
I think the best thing about life, is that there is always a tomorrow, and it doesn't matter what a mess you make of today, tomorrow is there to try again........ and again ..... and again......
Thank you Karen for doing this wonderful story for all us. I know everyone would like to find Karen so please go to her site at Life Is What You Make It...She is a sweetheart to get to know
I can not begin to thank all of you for your prayers. Sunday I stayed in bed all day due to pain I thought the all day thing was behind me but honestly I think I overdid it at the Pool Therapy. You can bet on Tuesday when I go again I will not do more than what I am suppose to do. hahaha Also I know I promised a post and pictures so that is coming but I wanted you to meet Karen since she has been waiting long enough for me to do her story.
Today is my c scan scheduled for 10:00am. I feel good about it because of all of your prayers. I know whatever happens God is still there for me along with all of you and my family.
But just in case the news is not what we want to hear you have all been promoted to Warden ... lol (see Warden post a few post back) Test results take a while so it may be Wednesday before I know anything. I also have to get busy after this scan and find a doctor to do my throart surgery. Isn't it crazy we have to do the searching for doctors under our insurance. I was surprised when the doctor gave me this task to do. Jeezz Marie what has our medical world come to. Next they will have us doing our on surgeries. Gripe gripe .......and gripe some more.
