truth

Some look at our family and feel sorry for us.

Some look at our family and praise us for our strength.

Some look at our family and think that we lie about our how happy we are.

My life is far from tragic.  Obviously my life didn't go the way that I imagined it would when I was growing up, but my life has gone in the direction that God needed it to go and I wouldn't have it any other way.

My children are literally my pride and joy.  I cannot imagine my life without them.  They come from amazing families and I am grateful to them for giving me my family.  I have a busy life, but I really believe that I was built for it.  Yes I have hard moments, days, and sometimes weeks, but the hard times are a small price to pay for the beauty I get to experience in my life.

I feel grateful that I live in a time and a place that I have the resources to take care of myself and my family.

I have always been very open with who I am and how I feel, good and bad. This is my truth.

And yes I absolutely wore a Twilight shirt and a horcrux to Evans concert this weekend.

and that's what I love your blog- I know that I will always get truth with a bit of messiness and craziness, but with a heavy dose of joy and gratefulness. Thanks for always shining your light on the rest of us!

How did I possibly deserve a daughter like you? You make me proud and your boys are lucky to have you for their mother.

Man, I needed to read that today. I am letting go of some of the things I thought my life should look like, and I KNOW it's to make room for better plans. But I am definitely having an easier time saying that than actually trusting in it. Thank you for this post :)
