A New Purpose For My Life.

July 6, 2012 at 4:24 pm (Uncategorized)


It seems like only yesterday.

Levi, my 20-year-old son ,set off the float the river with some friends. the local sheriff called me that night. Both our lives were changed forever. My son was involved in a car accident. Nothing could prepare me for the pain I would endure. After five days on life support, I made the hard decision to remove my son off of life support. I could not imagine how I could survive such a loss.

We lost Levi’s dad, and my husband to diabetes complications. we had become a family of two. I had many hardships in raising my young son alone. Levi and I survived them all. I am proud of the fine young man Levi had become. 

I am healing more everyday. I have come to realize that when I lost both my husband and son, I could have become bitter and angry at God instead, I chose to trust God. He has brought me through some of the darkest days of my life. 

It is hard to believe it has been five years now since Levi’s passing. When I chose to trust God, I realized He has a purpose for my life. My life keeps getting better

As I was composing this post at my outside office, a dove flew up on the telephone pole. The dove began cooing at me. This gave me a laughter in my heart and inspiration for the rest of my day.
