Watergate Salad

I am linking with Kelly's Korner Blog today to share a favorite summer dessert!
Watergate Salad
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed 
In a large bowl, mix together pudding mix, pineapple with juice, marshmallows, and nuts. Fold in whipped topping. Chill.

I always double my recipe to make it go farther and last a little longer! :)

Let Go and Let God!

I love this song, "This is the Stuff"... My last post I was so down... so sad... so silly, but sometimes, you just need to get it out. We all have our sad times.
I am so lucky tho, b/c I had a weekend where I was truly reminded how blessed I am. I am surrounded by people who love me and who are always there for me- no matter what. I am so lucky honored to have these people in my life! 
Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I am truly blessed. 
On a seperate note- this week it the start of a big change happening in my life. I am not sure what the outcome will be- I have given it to God and know that whatever He thinks should be, will be. I want this- and will explain more about it later- but, I'm going to "Let Go and Let God!"

A Step Behind...

My entire life I have felt like I am a step behind-
-last to be picked for a team
-last one to finish a race
-last years clothes from the clearance rack
-last to be invited
-last to get a date
-last to join
-last to love

Everything in my life has always been a struggle.
Nothing has ever come easy.
I look around and see everyone with things and lives I want.

Why is this my life? Why have I been hurt more than I have been loved? Why do I draw to people who hurt me?

What did I do wrong?
---maybe if I were thinner
---maybe if I were prettier
---maybe if I were richer
---maybe if I were smarter
---maybe if I were a boy
---maybe if I gave in
---maybe if I hadn't
---maybe if I conformed
---maybe if I would have been a leader
---maybe if I weren't me

Maybe one day I will get the things I dreamed of.
Maybe one day I will get the man I prayed for.
Maybe one day I will get the family I hoped for.
Maybe one day I will at least love me- even if no one else will.

Hello, Again!!

Hey there lovelies! Miss me? HA! JK!! I did miss writing and venting and getting feelings out, hence the reason I'm back. I've ha...
