Dear Diary,

I've turned a page in the story of my life and I'm going forward with great excitement!  The motto for this phase in my life is

You will be Amazed!
And truth be known, I'm already amazed.
  • I'm amazed that I've changed my blog to suit myself ~ not what I think others might want to read.
  • I'm amazed that my excitement for life has returned full-force, or really, BETTER than ever!
  • I'm amazed that I no longer do things with the thought churning in the back of my head, but what will others think?
  • I'm amazed that I now wear what I want to wear and not what the fashionistas of the world tell me I should wear.
  • I'm amazed that I've junked all of the "they says" and eat what my body tells me to eat and exercise in the amount and manner that my body tells me to exercise.
  • I'm amazed that I don't answer my phone if it's not someone I want to talk to at the moment.
  • I'm amazed that I really can say "no" and not feel guilty.
Mostly I'm amazed all this started with hurt feelings....Mine.
Those hurt feelings led me to a lot of thinking, praying, and searching inside myself for answers.
I was rewarded with a lot of answers.  Many of them surprising.  I AM AMAZED at what I've discovered.
I didn't like some of the answers I found.  Some things have been really, really hard.  But the hardest things have been the most freeing for me.
Thus begins the new chapter in my life....
                                                                I AM AMAZED! 


  1. Sherry! I am so happy to see you back and so excited about the new you! Dearest Sherry, I love the new attitude you have and applaud you for doing things your way which is just the way it should be! Have a wonderful day! Twyla

  2. Welcome Back!!!! You have been MISSED! I'm trying for the very same AMAZING attitude adjustment and it's hard at the ripe ol' age of 51. I'm counting on you to keep me motivated in the right direction!

    Looking forward to reading about what you've been up to!


  3. Oh Sherry I am so happy for you! Would you be willing to talk a little more about your change? I have been in a "funk" for several weeks (months?) and would love to find what you have found. I would love to be amazed! Angela

  4. Hi Sherry! Yay! I am glad you are amazed! It sounds like you've done some peaceful soul-searching. Good for you! I'm glad to see you back here. I've missed you!

  5. Welcome back! I have wondered how you are doing. It's been a long time. I thought maybe grandma duties were beginning to be too busy for you to blog. Looking forward to reading your stories and adventures again. :)

  6. So nice reading your post! Good to hear from you :)


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
