Yes I'm back again mylotters. For a hot second I almost forgot what mylot looks like. Six months ago when I came back from my previous 6-month vacation, I told y'all that I can't stay away too long from my precious friends on Mylot. I just want my special friends to know that I didn't forget about them... PERIOD. It's just the pulls of LIFE that sucks me up and SWALLOW me up into this super busy world I've been living in for the last 6 months, AGAIN. I've been so busy with my family, chores, sickness, making a living, church, helping others, my silly husband, and other things that accidentally falls down on my to-do-list. There are ups and downs of course, but overall, life is a Blessing! and God is good. I'll try to stick around here for about a month or so to keep my friends company. Yes the love is still alive in me. I just hope that everyone is doing okay. I don't like bad news, so shoot me something I can scream and celebrate about. What's the latest news (good or bad, big or small) in your life...if it's NOT too personal. Make it snappy before I slip off the face of the earth AGAIN...Be Blessed...

Hey Hatley! Thank goodness you are still here. I was looking for your response because I was so concerned about how you've been doing. It makes me smile knowing that you are okay. Send me your email through private message just incase I slip away from Mylot again. I have this thing about keeping my friends close.

Wow that pretty long vacation you have. I wonder what kind of job is that your doing that can afford to have you have a vacation that long. I hope I can do that also.

Well, i hope with all the busy you are doing well and are healthy and happy. We have had a gal named Alice on here getting the low down on the things that aren't working right. I hope we will see a few things change and work better. I know it all takes time and so maybe alittle at a time.

Hi, miraclefreebies. It is so good to hear from you!!!!!!!!! I am doing just fine. I went shopping yesterday. Me and my husband and kids got some new shoes and I bought me a new cell phone. I have been wanting a new one for a very long time too! I was so stressed out for the past couple of weeks. We was served an Eviction letter. Our landlord did not want to file it, but she had no choice but to. Her boss required her to do that. So, I prayed about this honestly to God. I told him to please help us find a way to pay our rent. I said this and I meant it from my heart. So, my husband came in on Thursday evening. And he said something to me that I could not quite make out. And in his hand was a check. Well, I did not know that it was a check until he came up close to me and he handed it to me, it was his income tax return check for over $4,000. I was so happy to see this! You just don't know how happy I was! I knew right then and there that this money would help us pay off all our utility bills and pay the rent that we owe, plus pay for this month's rent. The strangest thing about this was that, my husband specified that he wanted to receive his check electronically. Well, he got it in paper instead. I thought about this and said, it was my prayer that moved this blessing quicker. God knew that I did not want my family to be moved out and never having anywhere to stay. I went through a very tough time last year. I had to stay in three motels for a total of 7 months of last year. After that I had stayed with my in-laws for four months too. Which was in my opinion, not so very fun.. I pleaded with God to please not let this happen to us again. I prayed with tears my eyes.. I was hurting because we lost so many things staying in the motels. The Indians had my microwave stolen, my kids clothing taken away... My sweaters and perfume.. So many things.. I couldn't name them all. I am sorry to be telling my business here. But, I just had to express my sincere appreciation to God. He has done so much for me. Every time I ask him for a blessing, he just comes through each and every time. I am very grateful for his love and mercy! I hope that your life continues to become better. I am also sorry that you are still dealing with your silly husband. I hope that he is acting better and realizing that you come first and not his immediate family, from where he grew up with. I hope your life is beautiful each and every day. You deserve to be happy and you deserve to have the best of what God has to offer to you.. Be blessed!!!

Hi cream! You are a sweet heart, and I am soooo happy that God blessed your family in more ways than one. If we can just have the faith that God our Father will come through for us and never forsake us, we will have peace and happiness. My husband and I are happier than we've ever been. Both of us are behaving ourselves around here and going to church together every week, unless someone is sick. But life is joyful because God is in control. We have to do the math and count our blessings. I'm gonna stick around cream, and I can't wait to see more of you.

I was really pleased last night to see a discussion from you! Yes, life certainly keeps us busy! And you are right, it is a blessing. On my way to see my dad yesterday I saw a church sign that said "do the math--count your blessings!" and it's so true. If we would all do that we'd feel better each morning. My life is pretty uneventful, still jobless but my writing brings in some money to supplement my small income from my ex. He filed suit last August to have it reduced and I had to wipe out my savings to fight it but now he's dropped it. I won't get back much of what I spent but I've replenished my savings to about half what it was with my writing and internet earnings. That's my good news! Plus, everyone in my family and circle of friends is safe and healthy, even though there have been a few major health issues--life is good!

That's good dragon! I'm glad you have a positive outlook on life, Because without that, we'll be depressed and crazy around here if we only saw the bad things that happens to us. It's always good to hear that you're doing okay. God bless you my precious friend.

I am gone on occasion, usually when I have huge problems in my life. The longest I was gone, was probably 3 months. There is also time when I am active with such slow motion, that I can only respond to one discussion per day....

I may not be able to respond to many discussions each day I post, but I'll try to sneak at least 3-5 in each time. That should do the trick...

Hi mirablefreebies, how are you? I am very glad you’re back; I did wonder some time ago what happened to you! I know what you mean about life taking over. I haven’t had much time here for the last couple of months because these days it seems that everyone wants a piece of me! My daughter was on school holidays for seven weeks or so and she’s just gone back to school this week so God willing I may just have a lot more time here. Good to hear from you again, hope you stick around a bit longer this time!
