Don't lose sight of the things that make life so beautiful

Dear Readers,

It is 2am and I just now got a chance to get to my computer to write to my few, but faithful readers. It is my fiance's birthday today. Unfortunately, I will not be able to spend it with him. Just coming out of a military life and trying to set up a new life for ourselves is very difficult. I have not seen him for 3 months but I dream of being in his arms. I have become used to a life of wishing he was here but that doesn't mean that it ever gets easy. So, instead of answering a question today, I will just simply tell you to take this opportunity to be grateful for what you have in your life. Celebrate the beauty that surrounds you. Whatever it is that gives your life that little bit of sunshine, may you never lose sight of it. I am so blessed that I have someone so wonderful in my life. Someone who makes all my pain and all my fears disappear. To the man who raised me up and made me the strong woman that I am today- Happy Birthday. May God bless us with so many more years together.


  1. Jenny, I couldn't image not seeing my husband/fiancee/significant other for three months. I don't know how military spouses do it! I go crazy if he is gone two days.

    I will truly reflect on my blessings and wish you well in the blogosphere. I am new myself and would like to share my blog

  2. hii.. Nice Post

  3. Hello,

    My name is Leigh. Your exceptional blog deals with depression awareness and I know you are familiar with the importance of mental health. It is for these reasons that I contact you today.

    I am ‘every woman’, the girl next door and the one you never would have suspected, however, for years I have been struggling with depression. I have written a book about my experiences entitled “The Blue Veil”.

    Through this book, it is my aim to reduce the stigma of depression by increasing awareness of the issue. I am donating a large percentage of the proceeds to 15 carefully chosen mental health awareness organizations worldwide. I have provided the list of these organizations at the end of this email.

    This is where you come in. I am organizing a 2 month long online book release campaign, structured around various depression awareness weeks around the world. It will be from July 1st to August 31st. My request is, during this period of time would you be willing to host me on your blog for a few days of those months? This can be carried out in a few ways:
    -I would send you a couple/few articles that talk about my book and of course depression awareness. You would post these articles on your blog over a few days during those months (letting me know which days you will choose)
    -You could write your own prose about “The Blue Veil” and depression awareness and post these articles on your blog over the course of the months (letting me know which days you will choose).
    Now you may be wondering what is in this for you and your blog? Well, I could provide you with a free version of “The Blue Veil”. You could also review the depression awareness organizations, which I will send to you, to see if there is one you would like to be included and I will certainly look into it.

    More on “The Blue Veil”:
    Up to 58 MILLION suffer from it in the US alone, and VERY FEW talk about it. Is it your friend, colleague or neighbor? Now, finally, ‘The Blue Veil’ brings a modern, raw account of depression. Read it and understand your loved ones better. Be assured that no one is alone.

    ``Leigh has everything going for her when the unthinkable happens. She loses control of her own emotions and everything in her life begins to slip away. With a marriage strained to the brink, the loss of her father, fertility issues and the loss of her job, will Leigh be able to move beyond The Blue Veil and take back control of her future?``

    Thanks so much for your consideration and efforts. I understand that you are busy, so I wanted to express my sincere gratitude. It is with great respect for you and your blog that I write this email and it would mean so much to me to have your readers aware of my efforts.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time if you have any questions regarding my request.
    Sincerely yours,
    Leigh Turgeon
