Thankful, Hopeful and Blessed!

Sam over at Our Family Journal for awarding me with this...

"This award means you're really going places, Baby.
You'll still be blogging about your great adventures
10 years from now, and I'll still be reading them."

In order to accept this award, I first have to express
where I think my life will be in 10 years....

Here's were the HOPEFUL comes...

In 10 years....My oldest 'Grand' will be graduating from High School.
I HOPE I am here to see it!

Having a body filled with multiple tumors, unable to remove them, only God knows how long I will be around. It will be 10 years this October since they removed 13 and I almost died in the process. So long as they continue to grow slowly as they have been, continue to remain benign, don't rupture, I HOPE to be here as long as God has planned for me to be. Another 10 years would be awesome!

In the time God allows me, I plan to continue enjoying and loving Our Journey Through LIFE! Watch our 'Grands' grow, play and experience all they can.

There are still places I HOPE to go...Trips and travels with our 'Grands' to places like Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Redwoods to name a few. I HOPE to go on a cruise through the Panama Canal. I HOPE to go to other NASCAR races like Bristol, Charlotte, and Dover. 

There are still things I HOPE to see...The volcano spilling into the ocean on the Big Island of Hawaii. The launching of a Space Shuttle, The White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and The Smithsonian. 

There are still experiences I HOPE to have...A ride in a real race car, not one of the pace type cars I have already done, but a real, loud and vibrating race car. To make that experience even more memoriable, to have Jimmie Johnson drive the car would take the experience over the top. I HOPE I can experience a trip down the Colorado River, where I am just the passenger,while others do all the work of navigating the white water.

So I HOPE the next 10 years are just as memoriable as the last 10 have been.

Now the rules call for me to share this award
with 10 of my blog friends and readers....

I am BLESSED to be able to pass this award onto my favorite bloggers, readers, and just simply wonderful people. It isn't easy to just pick 10 though. I enjoy them all, reading them and enjoy that they read me. They offer support, concern, and care and I am fortunate to have found such great people. I would love to give this award to ALL of them. So if you are not on the list of 10, don't feel left out, grab the award, and share it with your favorite bloggers or readers also.

I HOPE, and would be THANKFUL, if you stopped by their blog and BLESS them by following and reading them as well.


  1. Congratulations to you and yes, I hope you are here for the next 10 years and longer!! All those things on your list, well I think I would pass on the car ride Lol, I'm a bit of a chicken!

    Thank you so much for thinking of me when passing this on, I LOVE Humphrey Bogart, my all time favorite actor so I'm just thrilled to display him on my blog.

    Thank you again hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  2. Oh Elizabeth, your post brought me to tears! It is so positive, just like everything you write! Thank you for passing it on.

    Hmmm, what will I be doing in 10 years? For one, I hope I've found a career path that challenges and inspires me. I hope the same for DH. I hope G is a strong, beautiful, responsible 11 year old. And I hope we have a new home by then, too!
