About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

When Did Life Become So Busy?

It's been over a year since I've blogged.  I don't even know where to start with what has happened in the last year.  Life has become too busy.  I've forgotten to keep it simple.

Bradley is 15 months old which means he will be going today for his shots.  Ouch!  He has been walking since he was 10 months old and is in his own little world.  There are moments I watch him and I wonder where the heck did this child come from?  He brings us so much joy and laughter.  Ty is 26 months old and has become quite the talker.  More like rambling but it's all the same.  His favorite two sentences are: "Bradley did it." and "Where did Mama go?".  He is the world's best snuggle bunny and I'm definitely his favorite buddy.   We are praying his adoption will be final by the end of this year.  We are so blessed to have two healthy, smart, beautiful boys.  And yes, I can say beautiful boys because they are all mine.

Mike had a severe Crohn's flareup several months ago and had to have surgery back in July.  He was in the hospital for 13 days.  I'll save that story for another day.  But I have experienced a new type of compassion for those who are hospital bound.  Recovery was fairly quick for him and he's bounced back in an unbelievable way.  Every day he surprises me with his new found energy.  

I'm still working full time at the church.  To save that I love my job would be a lie but to say that I love working outside the home is the truth.  And for those of you SAH Mom's, please don't hate me for saying that.  I adore my children.  I savor each moment with them.  I love my home.  I love having a hot meal on the table for my family.  But I love all of those things even more being away during the day.  And I'm sure my husband will tell anyone that I'm in a much better mood when I work outside the home.

My friend encouraged me to start blogging again twice a week and being that she is so incredibly smart, I'm going to take her up on that advice.  And we'll see where it takes me from there.....Thanks for sticking with me!
