I like to consider myself to have always been a bit of a confused person. As a little girl, I would have had a hard time telling you exactly what it was I wanted to be when I grew up. As I got older, the question became even harder to answer. It was a heavy subject for me, one that I could never really come up with a solution too. Having lots of big ideas, I would begin planning how to put things into motion, never being able to convince myself any of those ideas were something I would honestly want to do for the rest of my life. One thing I always knew I wanted was a family. Having grown up as an only child, and the youngest (by 5 years) grandchild in my family, I spent a lot of time & holidays pretty much alone with the exception of my parents. I longed for a family of my own that would be close; lots of people, big holidays. It was the one thing in my life that never changed.
In the summer of 2008, after moving away for college, I was brought to a hole-in-the-wall bar called “Yesterday’s”, and briefly introduced to a guy named Clay. I didn’t think much of it at the time. Hardly even held an actual conversation with the guy. Little did I know, he would be the one to make all those dreams come true.
After dating for a little over a year, I convinced him to marry me. I knew he was the man I was destined to spend the rest of my life with. We were married in May of 2010 and welcomed our first child, Sawyer, in May of the following year. It wasn’t long after celebrating his 1st birthday, we found out that the Lord had blessed us with a 2nd pregnancy. Stevie Rose graced us with her demanding presence on April 6, 2013.
After years of struggling to figure out what my purpose was in life; what it was I wanted to spend forever doing; it finally became so clear. I wanted to be a mother and a wife! I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing nothing other than that. Building a family, loving my husband, and raising my children is what I was designed to do.
Being a stay at home mom can absolutely be a challenge at times. Especially since my husband recently took a job working overseas in Africa. If given the chance, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
This blog will basically be a place for me to express my thoughts and share my ideas. There will be no specific subjects, and my feelings won’t get hurt if no one ever even reads it. And hey! If they do, then great. I’m sure they’ll get some laughs at the very least.
So until next time…… Au Revoir!
