A shout out to all my "M" Sisters!

I friend of mine posted this on her blog and I couldn't have said it better so I won't even try (except I can get the boneless skinless chicken breast....sorry N....for me...it is velveeta!).

By far - this has been the wildest year of my life. As I look back, I am reminded of some of the lessons learned along the way…
God is faithful. Even on the far side of the sea His hand guides me.
I am capable of far more than I ever dreamed.
My husband is the strongest, bravest man I know.
My sense of self-worth cannot be tied to my level of performance at any given task.
We (Americans) are spoiled & self-focused.
I am not entitled to every little thing my heart desires.
Dirt doesn’t hurt me.
Just because it’s painful doesn’t mean it isn’t good for me.
One should never take for granted: hot water, electricity, or boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Hey Melissa!
Too funny. I guess you can relate, can't you? :)
Thanks for the entertainment tips. We watched that show a bit in the States. When we finish 24, we'll check it out!
Love, N

I think that was wonderfully said, I am very proud of you Mel about the dirt part. You by far are one of the strongest women I have ever known. Sure miss you all! Give Mark and the girls a big ol' hug for me, please. Love and prayers!
