This is has been a year of change for the Pratt family.  The biggest change is that I resigned from my position @ the VA in March.  The Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia has won on that aspect.  I just cannot do a full time job any more.  I put up a good fight. I struggled 7 years before letting go of my pride and realizing that I was just making myself worse.  It has been a major adjustment.  It's strange not getting up every morning and going to work. Plus, I really miss the paycheck. Thankfully, I did get approved for disability but it's no where near what I was earning while working. Therefore, Bob has had to take on a 2nd job to make ends meet. It has been rough but God has brought us thru every moment. This "test", "trial" or "whatever" this is has increased my faith. I have learned to trust Him more and more each day as I see Him provide for Bob and I through miraculous means.  I have started a part time "job" however.   It is very simple.  It is called mystery shopping.  I go to restaurants, banks, bowling alleys, fast food chains, and even the post office and act like a regular customer but I am observing their customer service, cleanliness, and attitude.  I submit my report on-line.  If I do it to their satisfaction, they pay me for it and will reimburse most expenses.  It not a lucrative job, but it gets me out of the house and I enjoy it.
     I believe 2011 is going to be a great year for my husband and I.  I believe that God is doing a work that will manifest itself soon.  I will be 40 in 2011.  I am convinced that my 40's are going to be a great decade for me.  I pray that God will bless you and your family in 2011.  I pray that you will grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. That your soul will prosper and abound in God's love.  Thank you for your friendship and your love.  I cherish each of you whether I see you daily or just email you occasionally. I cherish you whether I have know you for years or if we have just met. I cherish you whether we are friends in real life or friends via Facebook.

Happy New Year and God Bless You All

I (We) love you, too, Keena. I know that God will never let you down and I am glad that you are embracing that knowledge. I wish for you and Bob a prosperous and HEALTHY new year.
