A Laid Back Love

The twins got their drivers permits a couple of weeks ago and they are chomping at the bit to learn how to drive. The kids and I have all agreed that Matt teaching the kids how to drive is not a good idea for any of us. He gets stresses out, he is a tad… Continue reading A Laid Back Love

A Day Full of Love

Happy Valentine’s Day friends! I hope today you were loved and were able to share love with others. I always like to do little treats for my family. Some years we do a fancy dinner, some cards and candy, sometimes a little spending money. Matt and I never to big romantic gestures for Valentine’s Day.… Continue reading A Day Full of Love

A Patient Love

Saturdays, who loves them? I know I do. Especially when there is nothing on the agenda. But today was not one of those Saturdays. Today, after a very long wait, one very patient twin finally got his big boy room! Matt, Jake and I disassembled the twins loft beds and put together his new one.… Continue reading A Patient Love

Loving With Grace

So most days I do my best blogging after dinner. I guess it is just my process. I like to think throughout the day and look for things to inspire me and watch for God to show me moments to focus on. Today, it wasn’t that I wasn’t looking for those moments, but I’m going… Continue reading Loving With Grace

A mama’s aching heart

This mama’s heart is aching and broken. I am trying to wrap my head around this shooting in Parkland Florida. I for the life of me cannot even fathom what these people are going through. The idea of not knowing for hours where your children or spouses are. No contact, nothing but pure fear and… Continue reading A mama’s aching heart

I need Jesus and a lot of grace!

I know one day I will miss it. But today I am totally exhaustified of driving my smaller humans all over creation. I am tired of coming in and out of the cold. Tired of getting interrupted every time I get into the groove of getting something accomplished. Yes, today I am grumpy. I am… Continue reading I need Jesus and a lot of grace!

What is your legacy?

This holiday season we had the privilege of celebrating my grandfathers 88th birthday. This man is one of my most favorite people in the whole wide world! His life and legacy is like no one I know. He has a servants heart, he loves and accepts and helps anyone who needs it. He is the… Continue reading What is your legacy?

The worst best Christmas ever!

Christmas 2010 went down in history as the worst best Christmas ever for me. Adam had finally finished chemotherapy and radiation 10 days before Christmas Eve. He was still feeling lousy and not eating, except through his PEG tube. I was looking forward to something normal for a change. I was looking forward to time… Continue reading The worst best Christmas ever!
