Lifes Pathway....Where are you taking me?

The photo at the top of my blog is a picture of how my life has been.....I am crossing a bridge in life and I don't know where it will go...
Life is a journey and I feel that my journey is about to turn another corner...
As most of you know since I lost Greg last year I have been running our Auto Elec business in Toowoomba.
Going from a stay at home Mum to a working Mum has had it's challenges never mind also being a single Mum, as one lady bluntly pointed out to me....The most challenging is not having enough time with the children.
Well it looks like the business is going to be sold..
We put it on the market 2 years ago when Greg first got sick. Now though I am getting cold feet, it will be like losing another part of Greg all over again when it is gone.....I have always joked that just when I've learnt every thing about the business and start enjoying being there it will sell.....How true those words were.
I am thankful that I am a Christian and I know that life doesn't throw any thing at me I can't handle...most days that's all you have to hang on to...I also know I have a God that loves and cares for me......So why am I worried? because I am a woman and that's what I do..I do look forward to the days when I can spend more time with my younger children as Will is growing up way to fast. Robbie is in high school next year and Cassie in grade 10....
So........I am going to believe that what ever happens Sell or Not sell it will be the best path for the children and I......Hmmmmmm I think they call that faith....

Thanks for listening to my rambling


  1. Mandy, I think you have answered your own question. I think its fabulous that the business may be finally selling for you as it is another step up the ladder in your plans which you made with Greg. This is what you had planned together and if it does go through then it is the right time for it to happen. As you know you are being looked after from above and things are planned out by those who love you. Another step on your adventure through life, we may get older but thank goodness life doesn't get any less interesting.
    Big Hugs

  2. Faith can move mountains! Whatever happens, God will take care of you and your family.

  3. It will all work out, enjoy each day as it comes.

  4. It reminds me of a quote I came across the other day - "sometimes you have to create chaos to change things" - going from being at home to working, and now back again - chaos on so many, many levels physical, organisational and emotional.
    But like you say there is a plan for each of us and sometimes it isn't until years later we see what it is. Perhaps part of the plan for you was to truly know and understand Greg's business before you moved on, perhaps the time you spent there was healing and a bridge between the times you spent with him and the the time you had to cope without him.
    But then it may take years to truly see what the plan was and how it pans out - and all of us will be here to watch it unfold with you.

    Love and hugs


  5. A lovely post Mandy.

    I wish you well with whatever life has in store for you, having strong faith will help you get through anything.


  6. Obviously getting used to it was the journey and you have done that so maybe God has another growth idea for you haha.

    I read a post about giving up something to make room for something else yesterday.


  7. Hi Mandy, I've been so behind on my blog reading. Like you, I have really busy days and then suddenly there are lazy days. After being so busy, the lazy days throw me for a curve and I can't get a thing done around the house. But that's good...like you, it makes me pause and reflect. We need those times. I have a deep faith God, too. Prayer and the belief that God answers prayers and has taken me this far, is a light in the darkness for me. God gives us these times to draw us near to him. He has a purpose and a plan for you and will take you down a path that, in years to come, you will look back on and know was right. God bless you!

  8. You are on the right path, Mandy. I admire your trust and faith in God. Lovely pics of your garden, too!

    I haven't been around lately, and it looks like I've missed a lot! I have been insanely busy these past 5 months! Haven't written any posts and have rarely had time to visit any of my favorite blogs. Hopefully that will change soon!
