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'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Survival Mode

I am in survival mode right now.   I didn't think it would be this hard starting all over again with a newborn.  Obviously I was wrong.  It's H.A.R.D.  Very hard.

Sleep deprivation takes a toll not just on your body but your mind as well.  Breastfeeding is an emotional roller coaster.  Trying to recover physically from the delivery and having setbacks each week is discouraging.  And if the laundry piles weren't big enough, adding cloth diapering to that mix was probably a crazy idea.

My friend sent me this verse on Sunday and I can't get it out of my mind.  It's exactly what I need and I'm holding on to God's promise with what little energy I have left right now.

Isaiah 40:11 says "He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

"He gently leads those that have young".....that is me right now.  God understands the craziness of my life adjusting to the new little one.  He knows how difficult it is for me right now.  But yet He is gently leading me along even on those days I barely have time to brush my teeth or wash my hair.  He's by my side, holding my hand, gently leading me along.
