Thank You Deb


I am the very luck recipient of this Delicious award
From the lovely Deb

The Rules for Eligibility are:
1. Answer the question,
"If you had one chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?
2. Pass on to six people and inform them of the award.

Oh boy what a question, I have thought long and hard about this over the past couple of days. There is a lot in my past life I would have changed, but then would I be where I am now if I had changed even the slightest  choice, direction or action?  Life is a journey, yes I know it's a cliche' but it is true. The journey takes many road's, detour's, hold ups.  It can be short, long or epic. I am on a long journey that has had several detours,disasters and delights. A journey that has improved along the way, the roads getting smoother and clearer the older I get. The road to being the me I am now had been a long and difficult one, it has been suggested by several people I should write a book, maybe one day I will, but probably not. But I am rambling one and not getting to the change I would have made.

The change would have altered my life so much I would be a completely different woman right now.
I would change the huge inferiority complex and low self esteem I have had from childhood.

Oh to have had a Fairy Godmother who could have waved her Magic Wand and given me the confidence to live life rather than live in the shadow's of other's. But instead I had to wait for a shy Scottish man to come into my life eight years ago, to save my life and show me I am not such a bad person. Our meeting and subsequent relationship is a story on it's own. He is my rock and I thank God every day for him.

Now how can I choose six bloggers to share this lovely award. Hmmm....

3. Anne
6. Erin

These are all women who make me smile, make me think, make me look for them each day.  I may not comment on their blog each time I visit, but I always take something away.  Thank you ladies. 

Deb  always gives me food for thought on two levels, my relationship with food and my spiritual struggle.
I love the sense of community, support and frienship here, therefore will always treasure my blog friendships.

Thanks so much for passing this lovely award on to me Sheilagh! You are such a sweetheart! I think if I could change one thing about my life, I would have joined the church I go to when I was 18 and first heard about it instead of waiting until I was 45! My whole life would have certianly been different I think, and probably a lot better! Having said that though, I am a better person for having lived through the struggles I have had, so who knows! Happy Saturday! xxoo
