I got a new book. Actually, it's a book that I bought for someone else as a gift, that I would really like to keep. I think though, I'm just going to read a little bit of it, and then put it back in the sack. And then go buy me one. Or keep this one, and go buy her another one tomorrow. The book is called, "Life Journeys According to Mr. Rogers." I liked Mr. Rogers. I think his wisdom was very simplistic, but very deep, and oh so true!

"There are many times that I wish I had heard that 'just who you are at this moment, with the way that you're feeling, is fine. You don't have to be anything more than who you are right now.' I'd like to think it's also something that's happened to me through the years, that I'm more able to accept myself as I happen to be, rather than as somebody thought I should be."

That is peaceful to me. At a time when peace is very good. There is a lot more I would like to write from the book, but I will some other time. A lot of people have asked me, if if I'm still "waiting." For those of you who read a previous post about me asking for prayers and such, you know what I'm talking about.

Going back to work was probably one of the single most difficult things I have ever done in my life. It has been a true test of charachter for me. I have been working for almost 5 months now. I know the exact month, day, hour, second, etc. etc...Some women would probably call me a whiner, and to you I say, "that's your opinion!" I know some women don't want to stay home, being home with their children all of the time would drive them crazy, and I understand part of that too. That's why I like the road in between.

Oh the things I have learned, and learning is a part of life. I'm very grateful, b/c I have gained some experiences that I know have helped me as a person. So I guess in a way I am still waiting, but I guess it's changed a little bit. God is really carrying me along...and how comforting it is to know that we can trust in him and his promises.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Great post. I love/loved Mister Rogers. He was great. He always made you feel as though you were special and that he took out his time just to be with you, his "neighbor." Aww...the memories :)
