end of summer

Seems like summer is coming to an end, but the heat is the last to leave! It's about 90 degrees today and still is pretty hot even at almost 7 at night.
This summer wasn't my best summer, but some good times and events showed up here and there.
A few things I discovered:
I am SO not in control, and I'm now OK with that.
I have put my complete trust in God and I'm finally able to sleep at night and rest.
I have more family and friends support than I ever knew I did
I will not let people bully me
I am more in love with Tod than ever before
I know exactly what Jesus means when He says He loves me
Even though I talk a big talk of taking a mini vacation to escape the daily drama and busy life at home, I miss and yearn for my family and children more than I enjoy being away.
I will fight for my children like a big momma black bear. I am blessed to have them, and will not go down without a BIG fight. They make my heart happy with delight and at the same time break into a million pieces. Who else can do that but your own children!?
I can NOT wait to start a new year with my family and friends, and to start new adventures.
God has truly blessed me and my life, and He loves me no matter what I was in the past.
Above are some pictures from our summer
