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

Remember your honeymoon?

Oh how I wish we were back in Grand Cayman. In the middle of the coldest winter we have had in 7 years, it makes me severely long for a beach. Any beach! Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love the sun and sand. The waves lapping against the shore. The salty, refreshing… Continue reading Remember your honeymoon?

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!

What path are you on?

Blogging everyday for 30 days is tough. I always want my messages to have meaning and substance. Some days I feel like I am just throwing words down on the page and trying to get them to make sense. Today I did a little Christmas shopping by myself. Once upon a time, when I was… Continue reading What path are you on?

Forgiveness

Are you hurting today? Are you struggling with forgiveness? There is so much freedom in forgiveness. If you are struggling to forgive someone, you must do it. It will destroy you. It will eat you up from the inside out. It does not damage the other person. I am speaking from experience. I figured out… Continue reading Forgiveness

Monday’s have turned into an impromptu date night for Matt and I.  It is fabulous! All but one of our kids have activities on Monday evening and the one that doesn’t, would rather have his eyeballs pecked out by chickens than leave the house. HAHA!! So I feed everyone before dropping them off at their… Continue reading Untitled

Crazy Cousin Love

We did some serious eating yesterday.  We were gone all day. I sadly, never sat down long enough, nor did I have anymore juice in my head to write yesterday! We spent the day with 2 of our families.  We have done 3 thanksgivings now.  (Matt has had 4 if you include his office one)… Continue reading Crazy Cousin Love

Twin life

I am struggling with the twins. They are sick to death of sharing everything. I know it must be hard. They tend to be our most laid back of the crew. I have bragged for years that they are the easiest, that I would have a dozen just like them.  Today, I am taking it… Continue reading Twin life
