Have you ever noticed that when mom gets sick the whole house falls apart? I really caught it yesterday when I woke up at 3 am with serious stomach pains. I thought I had eaten something that maybe didn’t agree with me, or that I had gotten food poisoning, but after a few hours and I started running a fever I realized that I was down with the stomach bug.
Isn’t it amazing how our whole houses fall apart when us moms get sick?
I am in the middle of reading a romance novel right now about a woman who designs wedding dresses in secret because she works as a seamstress for a famous wedding gown designer. She doesn’t want him to find out because she is fearful of how he will react and she thinks she needs this job to survive. Things are happening and all of a sudden she is walking in the calling that God has placed on her life — what she has envisioned for so long. She finally feels like she can breathe again.
and that is where I am at today.
Here we are already into the second day of January and my one word for the year is on my mind. I have prayed and asked God what would He have me focus on this year and all I could feel being spoken to my heart was this one word –determination.
2013 was a great year for me. So many things happened to me that just really caused me to fall head over heels in love with writing and blogging. Here is a look back at my year.
I think this year has been the best year yet for our family at Christmas time. Our kids are older and I am finding that the older they get, the more I love blessing them with love and the things that they have asked for all year.
Today I sit here at my computer and I just realize how hectic life has gotten for me. It is something that I never thought I would allow to happen, but it has. When life gets like this, all I can dream of doing is taking a step back.
Because of the hecticness of this lifestyle I am living, I crave for just drawing back and doing nothing — no social media, no computers, no television. Just me, my family, and the things I love to do like reading, crocheting, and cooking.

Today’s Prompt: In Between
Today, I am in between breaths. I am finding it hard to breathe again. Every single time I think I know what I want to do with my life, things suck me back and I feel stuck again.
Have you ever watched a baby bird who is just getting its feathers and almost ready to take that big leap in the air, but not really sure? He teeters on the branch raising one leg and then the other. He makes himself stand tall as he flaps his wings checking out to see if they are really going to work or not. He stands there unsure of himself, thinking — “maybe I should, but then again, maybe I shouldn’t. The next thing you know, Momma Bird has come along and shoved Baby bird right out of the nest.
Hey y’all! Happy Saturday This week has been a doozy with so many things on my mind. I’m linking up today with Kris from Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers for Weekly Wrap Up. This is a great way for me to look back at my week and see exactly how things went.
Yesterday, Kayla and I headed to Hopkinsville to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. We were both pretty excited about it. There is nothing more that we love, than spending time with her and making her feel special.
