About Me

My photo
I am now a 36 year old widow. Not sure how much things can change or how much they can change but let me tell you it can happen in the blink of an eye. The rug has been pulled from under me and I am struggling to pick myself and my kids up. I feel like sometimes, we have to be ready for when our plans and God's plans change what we think is going to happen. I am hopeful that our family's future includes Mark, my beloved husband, as much as we can.


Chris is 12! Brooklyn is 7! Preston is 6! and Kyler is 2!

An award.....

From miss Char!  Not your Typical mom!
"the blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…"

Best friends? Best enemies?

Or perhaps fr-enemies?  I am referring to my two youngest cherubs.  You know the ones with a halo held up by their horns?  They are sooo busy, gang up against me and anyone that dares to pick on the other.  Today Brooklyn told me Preston is my best friend then she proceeded to push him on his butt.  If she sneezes he says bless bo :) They are in action right now passing a ball in between their teeth,  I can't complain too much I have been sick with the stomach flu today and they have been pretty good.

Blog Challenge # 9

Share a favorite picture of something that reminds you of Spring. It could be one you've taken or one you like that you have found online.
This reminds me of the area I grew up in. Where we ran to play and discover.

Blog Challenge #8

"What do you feel passionate about? Photography? Writing?
Is there a topic you feel strongly about? Abortion? Politics? Religion?"
I feel strongly about raising my children to be strong people who are not followers but try to do the right thing. It is hard. I hope that they become the kind of people that stand up for themselves and others.
