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.

My Song for the Day - Blessings by Laura Story

My head hurts from crying.  My heart hurts from missing friends.  This is my song for today.

It's not easy being the new person.  It's uncomfortable.  It's a vulnerable feeling.  It's hard.  As painful as this process is for me right now, I know God is making something beautiful out of me through this time.  

While reading a book today the question "What have you built your identity around?" really struck me hard.  For so long my identity has been built around a circle of friends, the fostering community, and work.  The next question was "Who are you if you lose all of this?"  Umm.....whoa.  By moving to Maine, I've lost all of those things that made my identity.  No wonder I'm feeling emotional, lost, and alone.

But then God gently reminds me that I'm a child of His first and foremost.  I'm a wife to the most patient man on this earth.  I'm a Mom to the most beautiful boy created.  And that's all that matters right now.  

Blessings are coming through rain drops and healing is coming from tears right now.  If moving to Maine is what it took for me to find my true identity in Christ, then the painful process of being the "newbie" will be okay.
