If 'struggle is nature's way of strengthening' then I am going to be mighty strong by the end of this one!

My dear friends, thank you for clicking on my blog today when I have of late offered you nothing.  You know some of the struggles that I have faced lately, but because more and more kept landing on my plate, I didn't couldn't drag you through it too.

You know about my lost friendship with two people I thought were rock-solid, who I thought knew and understood me, who I thought would stand next to me rain, hail or shine.  The dissolving of that friendship, that I truly cherished but couldn't do a thing to save, crumbled me.  Up to that point, my husband and I had been enduring one trial after the other that we faced as a family.  Little did we know what was to follow.

Without getting too depressing, there is more.  A major family rift; a life not realised; a life changing decision and the c-word.  Yes, I have to undergo a test to rule out the dreaded c-word (can't say or write it as it isn't a reality so why bother?)

That is where I have been . . . under a massive rock.  I'll admit that my faith has waned, and I felt the strain but I know my Saviour has never left my side and watches over my family.  Next to my computer, I have an excerpt from that poem 'Footprints', it reads:

During your times of trial and suffering
when you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you ...

On a lighter note, I have completed some knitting projects, finished the back of my quilt and need to update you on my hair (as one does).  I hope to get that all to you soon.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this post wasn't too dreary and awkward.

Love  Fi xxx


  1. Dear Fiona,
    we wouldn't be human if we didn't have the capacity of sharing also bad moments, besides recipes, knitting and quilting. Posts are not computer generated, they are written by poeple with lifes and feelings.
    It will pass, you know it will, one day at the time. Do not lose your faith.

  2. Hang on to your faith Fiona and let Him continue to carry you through these trialling times.

Hey thanks for popping by! I read all your comments and really try and get to your blog too. Despite my good intentions, I don't always reply to each message but I am very grateful for the time you take in sharing your thoughts with me. Word verification is back up because I am getting spammed big time. So thanks for taking that extra step in commenting. Blessings, Fi xxxxx
