Happy Days!!!

    Do you remember the old sitcome "Happy Days" it was a show about life in bygone era!!  It makes you wish for simpler times and it seems that all the problems were solved by the end of the program.  Well I was just thinking how these are my "happy days" so much has happened these last two years, there has been so much change. Loss of my dear Mother, the accident with my nephew (which has been a loss of a big part of our sweet boy Jamie), the loss of children living at home (Ethan moved out).  I believe with the loss God brings us the balance of friends, family, and loved ones  and joy to go along with the sadness we may have experienced.  God has an amazing way of balancing our lives, if we allow him to.  He is the only true and faithful balance and he brings peace that to our lives. 
     At the moment it is "happy days" around the Boyd household!! We know those "sad days" will return and we will endure, we will forge ahead with whatever life has to bring our way, always knowing in who we put our trust, devotion, and faith to lead us through and carry us when we can no longer stand.  We will have "happy days" again because he has promised to care for us if we will cast our cares on him.  Thank you God for your presence and forgiveness and love and most of all for the sacrifice you made for me....Thank you for these "happy days" all good things come from you.

Has It Really Been 2 Years!!!!!!

Wow I can't believe it has been 2 plus years since I last posted...If I have anyone who cares to read this blog....I will try to start over....Lots of things have happened in the last two years....
My nephew was in an accident in June 2009 he has a TBI (tramatic brain injury) this keep us busy trying to help him with his recovery...did I mention he was only 3 years old when this happened.  Later that same year, my dear mother passed away. It just seemed that 2009 was a year that I could not handle the blog with all the things I had on my plate to deal with that needed my immediate attention.  Well we went into 2010 with high hope for my nephew, recovering as best we could from loss of my mother and just trying hard to get back on course.  In August one of our biggest surprises came in the form of our daughter and her fiance announcing that they were expecting...This was very unexpected and sorta through us for a spin again.  We very quickly recovered from the shock and started to plan for her arrival and I must say although it was a shock..she has been one of the greatest surprises to happen in our lives and she has been the greatest blessing other than our children.  So April 1st of 2010 we welcomed our sweet Isabella (she was late, due March 27) but she came on her own terms and as if to say...the joke was on us....The wedding was the next thing on the agenda...We were planning a October wedding at Beach!!!  October 22, 2011 we gained a son...There were about 75 people in attendance and we watched our daughter get her "happily ever after" Our son is doing well living in Murfreesboro with daughther and her husband.  he is  not going to school at moment but working and trying to figure out his next step.  We are so blessed the last 2 plus years have held moments of worry, concern, heartbreak, shock, joy, and tears of happiness and saddness...we have survived...and we are stronger from our trials and God was in control the whole time...So I hope to continue this blog...especially since I have a sweet little one to pass it on too....and if she is the only one who reads this then I pray that she is pleased and knows me a little better.  God Bless until next time!!!
