What has your life been like?

Hard. My life has been hard. 
From deaths in the family, to suicides, to fighting depression, to moving away, to rumors causing strife in my life, to marriages, to divorce, to birth, to raising a daughter on my own for a while, to getting into debt, to trying to work myself out of debt, to struggling with weight loss... hard. 

But so worth it.

Happy Mothers Day...

Motherhood is hard.
Motherhood is messy.

Motherhood is exhausting.
Motherhood is challenging. 
Motherhood is terrifying.
Motherhood is emotional. 
Motherhood is scary. 

BUT...


It is also beautiful.
It is also wonderful.
It is also incredible.
It is also worth every second. 
It is loving one human for the rest of your life.
It is worrying about one human for the rest of your life. 
It is never giving up for this human for the rest of your life. 

I am so thankful that God choose my momma to be mine. And I am so thankful he choose me to be my kiddo's momma.

Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful momma's out there. I pray that God will bless your day...

Who is the person you have learned the most from in life?

I would say myself.
Not sure if that is what you were thinking, but I had to learn a lot by myself after I got divorced. I had to grow up and take care of my baby girl and I did the best I could, but I learned a lot during that time frame. I still learn each day...

This gal feels old...

It is now May.

The picture below is probably one of my FAVORITE pictures of all time. 
It was during Easter when I visited home and my sister Michelle, along with my first niece Julia used Cadbury Mini Eggs and used them as lipstick. It was a fun day and this is just one of the many fun memories we have made. 

That being said... my very first niece Julia is graduating from High School at the end of this month and man, time really does fly by so fast. We blinked and she is grown and has turned into a beautiful young lady. I am so proud of her for all she has accomplished so far in her life time. I know her future is going to be amazing.

Camp Bound

Where did the time go? 
When did my baby girl become so grown up?


Okay. So, I know 11 is not so grown up. However, she is definitely not a baby anymore. And she is definitely not a toddler anymore. She is considered a pre-teen. I can't even handle that!

~ Today was a first time ever experience for all of us.
~ Today, I dropped by baby girl off at school. 
~ Today, I dropped her off with a suitcase filled with bedding and a duffle bag filled with clothing and her necessities.
~ Today, I dropped my baby off knowing I will not see her for 77 hours. That equals 3 1/2 days. 

~ Today, I dropped my baby girl off knowing that I would not hear her voice for that time frame as well. 

Now, we have been away from her for a week at a time. I am away from her when she goes to her dad's on her weeks with them. And he is away from when she is with us. And we have both been away from her for 10 days when she went to Louisiana. Only difference is, we were able to Facetime her and see her beautiful smiling face. We talked to her every night. 

This morning was the last time I would hug her or talk to her or kiss her smiling face for 77 hours people! It might not seem like so long to you, but to me it feels like eternity!

This morning she was so excited. We backed out of the drive way and she says... momma, I already see the tears in your eyes. I played it off. The principal was waiting and he grabbed her luggage and loaded it into the trailer and he said smiling, "we might bring her back." I did NOT cry one drop in front of her. I was a strong momma. My heart ached, but it was filled with joy and excitement for her. I drove away and one small tear fell. 

She is going to have so much fun and I can NOT wait to see her on Friday and hear all her stories she will have to share!

When were you most disappointed in yourself?

I think the only thing I can say is when I gained so much weight. It has been a long road trying to lose it all, but I am finally on a good path!
