GG Joy & PaPa Paul Visit

Who drives 3 hours one way stays less than 12 hours just to meet their Great Grand daughter.  GG & PaPa.  Rylee Grace is one loved baby girl!

These two have people have been there for me more in the past years more than I can count.  Wow does God know how to pick them.  I got the best husband in the world but how in the world could a girl get so blessed to also get the best Mother and Father in-law in the world.  They have sat on the phone and listened to this girl cry many times.  They have dropped what they were doing to come help me take care of my kids, cook food, clean my house when I could "literally" not get out of the bed".  

"Oh how blessed I am"

The women below holding my grand baby has loved me like her own daughter.  She does not judge my past only looks to how I love her boy.  She prays for me often and tells me often that she does.  Many around me complain about their mother-in-laws how they get into their business all the time and say things that are offensive, mine does not.  

I have not had the best relationship with my own mom in the last few years and that has been very hard.  And while no one can replace the need for your own mom to be there in your life nurturing you, guiding you, helping you, I'm super glad that I do have someone as wonderful as my mother-in-law who will try her best to do what she can to help my fill that void.  I love you so much momma Joy!

3 Gifts Waited For....

Today I got a phone call from one of my girls letting me know that she will be moving closer to home.  My family has been separated in 3 different states for a while.  Then it went down to only 2 states when Keisha moved home.  Today a waited gift for this momma when a phone call came saying that she will be moving to Longmont only 1 hr and 40 mins away :)
I have been waiting to feel better and today is better than yesterday.  I had a rootcanal on Friday and have been in a lot of pain for several days. I have been taking lots of pain meds waiting to get another appointment.  Today I feel a little better. 
I have been wanting to set aside time to do a few things I love and I have been able to do that the past few days.  It has been nice.  I have enjoyed blogging again, crocheting, and sewing.  
Thank you Lord for all your gifts!!

Grandpa and Grandma

I love that my kids have several Grandpa's and Grandma's that have adopted them in the church.  These very special people adopted my family some 15 years ago.  I could not image life without them.  This man not only told me about Jesus but he dunked me and helped me wipe my sins away.  He has answered many questions for me over the year some deep and some dumb but he has never made me feel weird whatever the question.  No matter where I go Stan will alway be my Pastor. 
When I think about a Proverbs 31 women,  Ruth is who ALWAY comes to mind.  This women has a heart of Gold.  She is an amazing women of God.  She loves the Lord with all her heart and it just comes out of her pours.  I could sit at her feet and listen to her for hours.  She loves with all that she is and everyone that is in her presence can feel it.  I have received many phone calls from her asking about my family and how we are doing when we have needed it the most.  (She just knows)
God has put amazing people in my life but non more amazing than these two people.  My kids love them and I love them more than they will ever know.  I thank God for them.

Where did the time go?


I can hardly believe that my boy is 7.
7 years old.  Wow life has flown by.  We have had lots happen in the past 7 years. 
The one thing I know for sure is that this boy of mine is like no other. 
His heart is sweet and he loves with all of it.
He loves friend and Lego's so much. 
This boy stole his mommas heart from the moment I saw him.  He is so teachable and wants to please no matter what he is doing. 
D has learned so much this year and although he is only in 1st grade he is currently reading and comprehending at a almost 3rd grade level.  He loves his teacher and loves going to school.  Although I have gone back and forth about homeschooling right now we have chosen not to.
I thank God for my son and I am blessed to be his momma. 
Happy Birthday D you are such a blessing!
