*My only complaint was that if I made 2 tacos at the same time, my second got the shell soggy while it waited. Just an FYI, not a deal breaker!

  1. The avocado and cilantro sound just fabulous in these! I’d do pulled chicken instead but add everything else you suggested. My stomach is growling just thinking about it!

  2. That looks so yummy. I am going to try it.

    I just want you to know that I love your blog! I found it totally by coincidence. I look forward to your posts. On the weekends I am hardly on the computer but I get your posts on my phone without the pictures. I get to read the post and then Monday go back and read again with pictures. I also find your spirit uplifting and motivating. I have struggled with religion my whole life the inner peace you have comes out in your blog and is an inspiration to me.

    Thank you for sharing!

    • Teri, I have also struggled with religious people and their lofty ways, to me there is a big difference between religion and faith in Jesus Christ. Peace comes with Faith: Faith in God, faith in His plan for me. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me! I love that you come see me…..twice! Phone AND computer. 🙂 ~Tonya

  3. Well — I had just written a long comment on your June 22nd blog and “poof” all at once it was gone! I am your Mom’s first cousin [Uncle Maurice is my Dad’s younger brother]. I had asked LaDonna about you, noting that I had anticipated meeting you as I have been following your blog since last spring/summer. We left to go west on June 22nd and I had not been on fb since father’s day.

    I have been blessed by your blog many, many times and want to encourage you to continue sharing your “daily life’s journey” with all it’s multi-faceted realities. I can most definitively relate to the adversities that you are dealing with, have wondered and asked God “why am I such a slow learner”? 😉 At one time I was driving in the car to work and I audibly stated “God, I just can’t take it anymore!” and it was like I heard God reply “That’s right, YOU can’t”. The realization hit — that’s the whole point. I have had to learn that we are fortunate to have been blessed with adversity and to have “lost” my life as I knew it — MS with physical disability/hearing impairment have been consistant teachers.

    Those experiences were “faith builders” for me, so important in a relationship with a personal God. Without faith it is not possible to please him…. thus I am grateful. Another promise I depend on is God’s reply to Paul “My grace is sufficient for you, for power [my strength] is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. II Corinthians 12: 9-10. As you and your family, we have been blessed to have the opportunity to be the recipients of God’s miraculous provisions and see His spirit working in and through others. That is truly a privilege, many have never seen God in action that way — but then, they maybe didn’t need a miracle. At the same time it gives one experiential knowledge of why the Word says, “it is more blessed to give, than to receive.” and realize what a privilege it is to give!!

    May you and yours be Blessed — Sara

    • Oh Sara, Thank you for this wonderful comment, I am glad this one didn’t vanish! You are a strong woman, and you show such strength through such a painful disease!!! I am always blessed and suprised to hear who follows our blog. I was so disapointed to have to miss the reunion, but as you know, sometimes there is just not money for these things! 🙂 It was a blessing to hear from you, Tonya
