Shelter From The Storm

"Shelter From The Storm" D.Ataville c.2007
This pretty much sums up how I'm feeling lately and explains why I haven't been blogging much. We seem to have hit an all time low here financially, and though I do have a job now, my hub is unable to find work, and we're on a rapid decline. I am now looking into food stamps and assistance for my family as this is how bad things have gotten. It's a very scary place to be when you have three children. Though I am trying to keep my faith, and believe that God's promises will hold true and give us the financial means we need to see us through the winter.
So as you can surmise, I have been feeling very scared and out of sorts.
But thankfully, we are all healthy and will always have each other, and are not suffering the pains of those going through the devastation of the California fires. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. And I hope they too will find Shelter From The Storm.
Hope all my blogging buddies are doing well! Hopefully my next post will be a bit more uplifting. Until then, Have a Spooky and Spectacular Halloween!

"Mother And Child" D.Altaville c.2007
I believe, there is no stronger bond of love than that between mother and child. I did this piece a few years back and was quite attached to it for some reason. However, I finally decided to let it go and put it up on etsy. Wish it were that easy to do the "letting go" thing as my own children get older. They have given me so very much and I am so grateful for them and the memories I will always have. See the post below, for my latest sweet memory I will always hold dear.
Happy Day all! Make it memorable.

Sweet Memories

Well, here is my darling daughter, after a wonderful night with her boyfriend, at the Homecoming Dance. The pictures don't do our bargain dress justice but the little beading you see on the neckline is scattered throughout the dress.
I have been busy with my new job, so haven't been posting much. But after just three weeks they have named me Advertising Sales Consultant of the Week! And I got a cash bonus to boot! YAY! Unfortunately, today I woke up with this sinus/flu thing happening so it's slowed me down for now. But hopefully, sometime soon, I will be able to catch up on what you all are up to.
Until then I hope you are having a wonderful Fall and making Sweet Memories of your own!
