This is another reblog of something I wrote back when I first started blogging …Diane


I have been told many times by different people, that I am too serious. I guess they ‘re right when I self-examine. As far back in my recollections even as a child, I grew up too fast and with it came the memories of realizing how unstable a childhood I had.

  1. Thanks for beautiful words…No I don’t ever blame my Mom as she worked so hard to give us what she fact she taught me so much about love….how important it was to keep loving in spite of circumstances.

    Keep your blogs going …I’m loving seeing your ‘scrapping’…Diane

    btw one of the pictures with a little red haired baby reminds me of our daughter as she had red hair also….


  2. Thankyou for your lovely reply on my blog. I have been reading your posts (on my phone) and I havn’t had a chance till now to get on the computer and write some comments to you.
    I really enjoy your reblogs. They are inspiring and written from the heart. I think your an amazing person, and I’m glad you don’t blame your mum as it must of been really hard for her too, and it sounds like she was doing her best. It seems (just from what I have read about you) that you have not let the bad things keep you down. I’m so glad you found strength in The Lord. Thankyou for sharing, I enjoy reading your posts and they help reafirm my faith in Jesus.
    Bless You! and of course happy scrapping!
