Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

When I was a young girl I always wanted a family. A big one, brothers and sisters, dad & A MOM! Now we all know that didn't happen. BUT it's about to happen. A little over a year ago my dad met the greatest woman, Cheryl. She has 2 boys, both married, 4 grandkids, Aaron and Abby belong to Tom & Jennifer; Noah & Nathan belong to Scott & Angie. I was talking to my friend at lunch yesterday. We were talking about all the things I've prayed for in the last 6 months that have all been answered the way I wanted. One of those things was that 3 people at work who are really negative will be moving on to great positions for them! They are negative and I kind of wanted them out of my space :) Lo & BEHOLD there they go :). God is good to all of us.

She asked me what I've been praying for lately. A couple of things immediatly come to mind, Herb (had a relapse), Arlene, Phyllis & School, and my "new" family. I told her that I was worried that I wouldn't fit in. She said "what are you worried about, this is the family you've always dreamed of". Hmmm...

Then I was standing (well, I was sitting) and someone was reading part of a book to me and it basically said that God gives us dreams , and He fulfills those dreams to show us how much He loves us. Do you think I made it without crying? Yeah right.

To think a dream that I dreamt years and years ago is being fulfilled. In God's time, not mine. I'm so blessed.

Esther 8:16 was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor
