Veterans United Foundation

Today I attended the Veterans United Foundation Kick-Off Meeting at my new job and love it! It was amazing to see what great things they are doing to enhance and make better the lives of others. I was truly touched by the stories and the generosity. From this I am encouraged to think of others as much as I can. We are all fortunate to have the things we have and live the lives we live. Even if you have nothing to give it is still important to think of others in general whether that be opening a door for someone or financially helping someone through a tough time. Generosity is the key and it is the way we should live our lives daily.

Currently reading...

Reading this book by Denise Schipani titled Mean Moms Rule. I am actually enjoying this book. I know the title sounds bad but in reality its a really good thing. So far I have learned to have the "mean to go on approach". Essentially what that means is that if there is something I am wanting my child to succed at then I need to get over the "fear" of training him and try it out. This is book is showing me how to be who I am as a parent and who I need to be for my children. We each in life are different in how we parent and there is nothing wrong with that it is how we were created. I encourage you to get a copy of this book and read it for your self and take what works for you! You can order a copy here or check it out at your local library!

Ran across...

My husband showed me this video a while back ago. I ran across it today and wanted to share it. A crucifiction type love is a love we should all have towards one another. Watch, enjoy, and grow in love. Think about your loved one today and what they really mean to you.

Returning to the blog...

Life has been so busy and I haven't been able to be on the blog like I would like to. So I am now returning to the blog. As different things go on in my life I will blog about them to bring hope or laughter to who ever may read it. I enjoy writing just don't do it as much as I would like. Keep your eyes open to news and things to come from me and my family.

Mother's Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day and it was a wonderful day with my family. I realized how truly blessed I am with people who love and care about me. Thankful for my 3 children and for my husband who has been on this journey with me. I received some wonderful gifts that I will cherish. I look forward to showing my appreciation for Brian on Father's day.

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a different kind of day. My husband was so wonderful and so were the kids! I got an iPad and some jewelry. My mother came into town about a week ago and took me shopping. I can truly say that God has blessed my life and my families life! My husband has made each day exciting and crazy but he is always on by my side. He made my day very special and love him even more for that!

If you don't feel blessed just remember that you don't have to feel blessed to be blessed. God has already blessed you so walk by the faith he has given through his word and he will do amazing things in your life.

It has been a fun month! I had Christmas break off and was able to spend endless quality time with my boys. We colored, rode on the carousal, Baked cupcakes, and so much more! Also on break I got to reupholster some cushions on an old rocking chair I am using in the new babies room. Check out the picture below.
Took me 2 hours to do this which was over two days. I can only sit still for so long being pregnant! I probably would have been done sooner. I am so excited on how the room is turning out. Ready for our new arrival to make her appearance!

I go back to work tomorrow and it will be a busy week! Classes start back on Monday so hopefully I will get back into a system before the baby comes. No worries I know all will be well.

Happy New Year everyone and make this year better than last year! I know I plan too!
