About Me

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting my blog! Let me tell you a bit about myself. First I'm a wife then a mother of two (a 5 & 1yr old). I love to share my experiences, thoughts, ideas, questions really just about everything, lol! I want to be a positive motivation by sharing what I go through. You never know what I'll post, believe me, sometimes I blow my own mind. Having children = never a dull moment. Through it all I try to take one day at time remembering to keep breathing through it all :)

There is a saying that I've heard in church & it's "God is good all the time & all the time God is good!" I call myself a Christian as I do believe in God & his promises. He has been there for me during some tough times in my life & has always proven himself to me. I know some people may not believe in him but I do. If you stay faithful, believe & put him 1st in your life you will see him all around. I've posted about being a one income family and things I do to help us get by but it's GOD! He has our backs! We are human so we may not always pray as our first reaction, we may lose patients or not always follow his commandments but if you go back to him he will always welcome you with open arms. Pray (talk) to him about your goals & dreams then keep your eyes open. You never know when an opportunity will arise, he never fails. When the clouds begin to darken & your visibility diminishes he will show you the light that will only grow until it blinds you. Don't look at the upcoming storm as a problem but as a puzzle. We have to figure our way out but using God as a picture. When solving a puzzle you leave the box near you to look at the picture as your guide. You can say we have no owners manual to life but we do, it's the bible. This is another gift God has given to us. Tomorrow is Mothers Day & I can't be more excited. God has blessed us with two beautiful smart boys that will be dedicated together. Thank you for keeping us in your mist Lord.

Living on one income

I've said this before but still haven't done it. I need to start putting my thoughts on my blog & not all over Facebook. Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this. So here it goes.

          I read an article which described the realiaty of being a stay at home parent and it was amazing. When someone hears, " I'm a stay at home mom.", they automatically thinks it's peaches & cream. Guess what it's not! There are days I have everything in a babies world on my clothes and I don't want my husband getting near me. Even though he's nice about it I know I smell, lol. Staying at home is not easy and it's not for everyone but it has always been something I wanted to do. No, we don't have everything but we have what we need. We don't have a flat screen tv, cable, laptop, name brand items or even two cars but we have two children that get to see their parents more than 2 hrs a day. Our toddler gets a home cooked meal and gets an at home education. (He's not in school yet but he can still learn) We talk about moments with our children being priceless but what about being the parent? The sacrifices we make should also be viewed as priceless. I price match, coupon & I'm constantly on the look out for sales to get everything we need. Yes, I may have to stay up late or get up early to complete my task but I do it so I can be with my children. We make the decision to be selfless to create what we see in our eyes as precious/priceless memories & build a strong bond with our children! Kudos to all families that make the choice to have a stay at home parent!!!
