  • With the cooler, cozier (is that even a word?) weather here it makes me want to grab a blanket, a hot cup of tea and curl up with a good book. I enjoy reading. I find it is a way to learn and increase my knowledge and understanding of things. Sometimes it’s an escape, other times its

  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog!
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
  • After a week of having family stay with us it seems really quiet around here. Started to pack the Christmas decorations away and undress the trees- unusually early for myself but I’m itching for 2019 and a fresh look! Although I’m not ready to say goodbye to all my hallmark movies- any one else loving all the hallmark movies?
  • It’s Christmas Eve - I’m as tired as I look but my heart is full! It will be a white Christmas after all- yah! Had a great time at our 2 Christmas Eve (Eve) services last night and just getting ready to head back to the church for 4 more today - tired face explained - but it really is the most wonderful time of the year so much to be thankful for and yet my heart feels for those who are hurting and suffering this season - you are not forgotten! If you’re looking for some hope and love, a warm friendly smile and something to do DM me and join me for 1 (or more if you want) of our Christmas Eve services today!
