Thankful

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone – I figure now is a good time to write. There are many things I am thankful for.  When I think about it, it’s almost overwhelming. We spent Thanksgiving with my dad’s side of the family in NY this year.  It was such a good time.  While we were […]

Dandelions

Whoever says children can’t teach you anything has never had a dandelion handed to them by a child. We get carried away with life so quick, we hardly realize the beauty in nature.  To an adult, a dandelion is nothing more than a weed that needs to be destroyed in our perfect green grass.  To […]

Moving forward

Just reflecting on the past month or so.  I’m struggling.  However, in the midst of struggling, God has put us toward the right path in helping our little girl.  I’m struggling because currently it’s truly hard to find the joy in being this mother that God has chosen me to be.  Love hurts.  Enough said.  There […]
