I am glad to have 2015 behind me and I have high hopes for 2016. Not that there’s any reason to think that except trust in God and believing He knows that I can only take so much.
With 9 kids, I have heard many versions of “Mom, I’m bored,” and, “I don’t have anything to do.” I usually send them outside with orders to, “Run around and have FUN!”.
Last week when I was at Disney I got to meet a couple of y’all and that was wonderful! I love meeting you all in person and getting to chat with you. Both of the ladies I met asked me the same question that many of you ask me, “How are things going with your daughter?”.
As we approach the winter it’s a good time to prepare for the possibility of sickness in the family. It happens to all of us occasionally, we catch a bug that’s going around and before we know it we are in bed. All day.
OK, it’s official. I am so done with my husband being gone. I already knew he was the solid one in the relationship, but after a week without him I am more sure than ever that he is the glue and I am all of the broken pieces.
Back in the day when my kids were little, my husband would walk in the house at the end of his workday and say, “Hi honey, what did you do today?” And I had nothing to say.
What do you get when you cross a whirlwind trip to Ft Worth with a woman who has been detoxing from Disney and sugar? I think you can imagine. It’s not pretty.
Am I the only one who is shocked that it is April? And that Easter is behind us? In fact, I’m still warming up to the idea that it’s 2015.
I am not hesitant to share how incredible God is and that His hand has been so obvious through all of our sorrow and tears. Despite the overwhelming agony of loss, the unspeakable joy that has cropped up all around me has to be shared!
I worked in our etsy shop in the morning, filling all of the orders and cleaning up since after the holiday rush we just closed the door and left the mess. Once that was finished, I ate some lunch and laid down for a long winter’s nap.
