Never Judge a Book by its cover

I am so thankful for my wonderful friends and family. They know me better than I know myself. Several of my friends asked what they could do to help after the fire. Most common reply was, pray.  The ones who know me best, know that I am independent and full of pride. If you want to do something for me. You just have to do it because I rarely can swallow my pride to ask.  Day after day, they washed clothes, salvaged belongings, helped load and unload, because they are selfless.  Several of my friends asked about starting a go fund me to help us get back on our feet. My reply, let me think about it. I then receive...

Home is where your heart is

The kids have been with mom and friends all week so I could deal with salvaging our things. I have been on an emotional roller coaster. I have longed for home. I just wanted to go home! That's been the hardest part at night... Leaving the house after moving each day.. Feeling lost.. Just wanting to go home and I couldn't! All my babies are back today and we are the camp..All I can do is stare at them. I think I've said I love you 100 times. The bickering has been music to my ears. I don't long for home tonight, because I realize we may not have a physical house to call home right now, but they are...

Be a survivor, Not a Victim!

I have always had an extreme work ethic and love for my kids that pushes me to get things done... To the point of working myself to death. If I need something, I rarely ask for help.. I find a way.

I'm growing stronger everyday. You can't break me! I've already...

Walk By Faith

  As most of you know, we had a house fire Friday night. We lost a lot of possessions and I lost a lot of my inventory. I have had a hard time coping with it all. "Walk by Faith" I got this tattoo after my long court battle with Bailey Grace. It's always been a constant reminder of what I've walked thru and how far I've come. The past few days, I had lost a lot of faith. I asked why me? Instead of asking what can I learn from this. I cried myself to sleep every night worrying. I haven't even wanted to be around myself. I couldn't figure out why...Yes, we lost a lot and yes it...

Blessings in Disguise

I just have to share because I think there is a lesson behind it and I didn't think about this until this morning! Yesterday I delivered an order to a customer at the nursing home. Her order totaled 37.40 and she gave me $40 and told me to keep the change. I left there to meet another customer who was running late so I decided to make a quick trip to Walmart before I met her. I hurried in and grabbed what I needed and frantically looked for a checkout that wasn't packed out. I went to the express lane first but their was an elderly woman who was at the checkout. I kept walking but the others were backed...
