Have your ever Googled yourself?

Well, here's one for you. I somehow feel compelled to blog since I haven't in a while. But I just honestly didn't know what to blog about. Life is trucking along o.k and nothing super huge to report. However the other day and sometimes periodically I will Google my name or my email name etc... to see what comes up. This, I tell myself is to see what others could find out about me. See, I'm have worked in the legal field for over 18 years and have developed what I would call a keen sense of paranoia. You know that all say we have a 6th sense, well paranoia is my 6th. It often will manifest itself in weird ways. So on to my googling. So I decided to Google my name. Nothing really came up, however there is a Sherry Boswell who is a lawyer in Arizona or something. Go figure, right? Well, I then proceeded to Google my email address. See I was thinking I came up with something so cool and slick. Mom4life, that's me. Well, when I typed that in more and more hits were there. I came across this one. The exact one to be specific. There is a blog call Mom4Life and she also runs a business helping other moms connect with cool stuff for babies, nursing mom and the hip mom. They even sell (has anyone really heard of this)I'm almost embarrassed as I type this Diva Cups. Well, it's not what you would think it is. Its a (whisper)(menstrual cup). Ok, I might just be going out on a limb here but I don't honestly know anyone who has used these. If you have would you please raise your hand? They sound like a good idea, but really people. yucky!
Anywho, on to the good part. Well, on her blog I began to read about her tragedy that happen earlier this year. I was enthralled as I saw a most beautiful, somewhat strange photo of an infant wrapped in a blanket underneath the photo of her other two children. In another, the whole family was surrounding the baby in the blanket. She has stated to read the entire story go to a post at the bottom. It told of her baby who was 37 weeks gestation had died in the womb and was stillborn. My heart just about tore in half and I was literally sick to my stomach. It happened earlier this year. How could anyone make it through such a devastation like that? Her blog spoke of such words of encouragement, scripture and comfort from the Lord. WOW! Let me tell you it spoke to me. Not that I haven't had what I think are tragedies in my life, but nothing compared to her situation. I was AMAZED at how God is helping her through this. She has allowed God to carry her through this and the faith to believe that God is in control. Check her blog out....mom4life

How often to we take for granted what God himself is willing to give us. I heard a song today about Grace. Grace is what God freely gives us and it covers all our mistakes, our everyday sins, our hurts and our tragedies. If God can be there in those tragic situations, he can be there each and every moment of the not-so-tragic moments of our lives. Well, I just wanted to share that with you. It is a great site..really check it out. I found all this out when I Googled myself. What will you find out?
