Amazing

on November 9, 2010 - 12:36pm

I am finding the wait for Illuminations absolutly amazing. As the weeks have passed we've been blessed with a few new songs and also some incredible videos and video footage. Today one of our fellow grobanites sent me a video of Josh singing Neil Diamond's Play Me. That song never brought me to tears before, but today it did. His voice and enunciation of his words makes ordianary songs extraordinary.
I continually get made fun of when my cell phone rings because it croons "you are loved" well, if they only knew the meaning of that song to me and getting me through the tough times in my life this past 18 months. They can laugh and make fun of me because it's ok. Everytime it rings it puts a smile on my face and more love in my heart.

Last Year

on October 12, 2010 - 8:50am

Looks like I will no longer be able to afford to be a FOJG member since my hubby cut his 2 fingers on a table saw last week. It is costing a fortune for hospital & doctor bills, so something had to go & unfortunately, this is one of them since it will be right when the bills are coming in. Our insurance is horrible, so we have to pay 20% of the hospital & doctor bills & there are many of them. Joe still cannot use his fingers & we are hoping he will get the use of them back once the swelling goes down and the 30 stitches are removed. If anything changes, I'll renew..if not, this is my last year. I'll always be a Josh fan, just not on here. Will miss you all.

New plans!

on September 19, 2010 - 7:56am

I have begun a new diet to loose weight and get to a healthy size for my 5'3 frame! It is going to be hard to not cheat, but this time I have a support from the staff and fellow co-workers. I am determined to loose the weight and keep it off. They even did one of those computer generated pictures to show me what I can look like just loosing 20% of what I want to loose. What a motivation!!! Plus, I have a huge trip coming up in Feb. to help celebrate my 30th birthday and I want to look great for it!!!! It is a bit expensive (the diet) but I am willing to sacrifice to make it work this time!

Thankful

on September 14, 2010 - 6:41am

As fall rolls into Northern MN I become such a happy person. Most people who live here complain about the cold, but I love it. Fall seems to be a time for me to reflect on the past year. I have been blessed. A divorce that should have happend years ago finally went into play and finalized this winter. I am glad I was strong enough to go through it and sometimes Josh's music was all I had. I was able to purchase a manufactured home in a safe community. Not where I want to be, but none the less, it's mine and it works as a temporary shelter for me, the kids and 2 dogs. I have also been blessd to meet the most wonderful man in the world. Corey is kind, generous, thoughtful, helpful, understanding and just plain incredible. he'd deny all of that because he's humble. We are able to be ourselves with each other. I had to laugh at him last night when he called and asked if I wanted to come over. I knew he and his daughter haven't had one on one time since they came back from their vacation. So I asked him if he wanted that time alone with Abby. His comment "I didn't want to offend you". My golly, I would never be offended if he wanted some time with her.
