My God is ENOUGH…

It is hard to believe I have made it through 3 years and 8 months without my amazing husband, spiritual leader, father to my children and I wish I could say that I no longer have sad days or wish for my old life but the truth of the matter is I still do, OFTEN!!…

Hello Again!

Well Hello Again! It has been WAY TO LONG since I have shared anything here so I thought this would be a good time to let you know what we’ve been up to.  Oh and Happy March!!  I know many of you are enjoying a rather cold day or should I say DAYS.  Here in…

Choosing HOPE

We can live 3 weeks without food We can live 3 days without water We can live 3 minutes without air   But I believe we can only truly live seconds without HOPE.  This is another truth the last 3 years of walking this hard road through widowhood, singleness and single parenting has taught me!…

Three years… surviving or thriving??

It is hard to believe but August 13th marked the three-year anniversary of Todd’s relocation to Heaven.  August 21st would have been our 21st wedding anniversary and the kids started school on August 26th.  Jackson has begun 5th grade and Bethany the 1st.

We have more than survived…

Well the kids and I have officially survived another school year.  More than survived really.  I mean life for the most part seems more “normal.”  I have settled in to the fact that I am a single Mom raising my two kids without their father.  Do I like it,  NOT really!!  I still miss just…

Mother’s Day, what a difference a year makes

As we recently celebrated Mother’s Day I could not help but think about what a difference a year makes.  Last Mother’s Day I was actually at Disney World with my kids which I thought would be a great place to getaway and celebrate life and motherhood.  It was truly magical and we over all had…
