2017's Word of the Year

2017 word of the year- Enjoy- I will strive to relax and enjoy life more in 2017. My goal is not to get stressed about little details but to enjoy the things that God has given me, big and small.

Three Years Old


I can't believe that this young lady is three years old today. Of course since she lives so far away, we didn't get to help her celebrate, but it looks like she had plenty of fun without us. Happy Birthday Lexi! We love you!

Being a Mom is Hard

I love my kids! I just want to say that up front. But I have also learned that being a mom is hard work. And it can suck the life out of you. Sometimes they make choices that just make you want to beat your head on the wall and scream. And your children can hurt you, more than anyone else in the world.

I should write a book. Really I should. But I don't like books without happy endings and so far I can't envision a happy ending. I take consolation in the fact that I worship a God who can. Until then I'm buying stock in Band Aids.
