I found this image on another blog months ago and decided to finally use it! I am not sure even what they had used it for, but this is my version! Thirteen random things...

1. I wish I could be that little girl ( up there ) again some days....but know what I know today...

2. I know that there are only 13 days left for Christmas shopping and I have yet to start...

3. I know that I have spent far too much time visiting doctors these days...and it will only get worse....

4. I know that my husband has finally gained the courage to set a plan in motion and stick to it! (I'm proud of you honey!)

5. I know that my daughter is slowly getting on the right path and for that I am truly grateful!

6. I know that at Christmas I really do miss my family more than any other time of year...

7. I know that when your down in the dumps people always seem to kick you harder...

8. I know that life has a way of reminding you of what is truly important.....

9. I know that I totally suck at sending my gifts and I have NOT forgotten about my 3 winners and only hope they can forgive me....

10. I know that RMS ain't what it used to be.....

11. I know that because of RMS I have met some of the most wonderful people that I am truly honored to call friends, despite our differences, despite the distance and despite the fact that most I have never met....

12. I know that I am far more insecure than I would have most people believe....

13. I know that or at least hope some will share their thirteen with me...even if only here in a comment...

Hugs and much love French;) xoxoxo

So, what is this plan that G-man has? Now you've got my interest piqued!

I promise not to kick you while you're down!!!!!!

Justine :o )

Oh French, I wish I time to comment properly without this Jacob over here talking in my other ear....I would have never guessed that you are insecure...I miss RMS and I popped by the other day to check out all the Christmas decor and it is NOT the same. I'll pop by later when I have more time. ~ Robyn

Naz said...

When a person is down they need extra hugs.

(((((((((Madam French))))))))))))

Bo said...

Oh, Lisa girl...You need a great big hug...and I'm sending it to you telepathically right this minute! You have been a sweet & true blessing to me my dear little one and I thank God our paths have crossed. ♥ Bo ♥

cindy said...

Hi my little French Fry! I hope you can get that Christmas shopping done...I havent done mine either. I am glad for RMS too...or I would have never gotten to "know" you! Will you get to see any of your family for Christmas? I hope all those doctors that you are seeing are helping. Hugs to you! Love, from MN~Cindy~

"Blossom" said...

Hey girlfriend I am carrying you this morning. It will be ok.
I was ill some 15 years ago, went to every doctor you could find. They told my husband it was all in my head. I final went to a doctor right in my little town and it took her about 2 years to get me straighten out. You will get better; have you been to the mayo clinic? Get on line and see if they can help you.

Your post is one of the most honest, insightful and heartfelt I've read in a long time. My heart melted for you as I read it. I am going to put a lot of thought into my Thirteen Random Things and post on Living Boldly! Thank you and please take care.

Bridget said...

I couldn't agree more with number 11. Back in January when I signed on to RMS, I couldn't have imagined where it would take me and all of the wonderful women I have come to know from there! You are at the top of the list!!!!!
Hugs, Bridget

Oh Lisa, along with other commenters, I also am sending you big hugs and warm wishes. ... Having spent several Christmas seasons far away from family and friends I can relate to how you may be feeling. I rejoice with you at the positive things that are happening with your family and feel so badly that you are having the physical/health problems. How I wish I could make everything okay for our 'lil French Fry. You are so loved and respected by many... please include me in the long list of admirers of your kindness, gifts and talents. ... smiles and hugs - SherylCanadianGirl :-)

nikkicrumpet said...

I loved your thirteen. I agree with you on so many of them. I'm sorry you are having such a horrible time with your health. I sure hope the doctors can come up with a simple solution so you can get back to feeling like yourself. I agree with the RMS thing...I deleted all my rooms some time ago..it seemed pointless to keep them....but I will always be grateful because it brought me here to blogland...and helped me meet some amazing people! Take care of yourself...I worry about you!

Justine said...
