Let's Be Real...

Facebook has a funny way of making everything seem perfect, like everyone has the perfect life, the perfect family, the perfect hair, clothes, kids, spouses.... and the list goes on and on.... WELL ITS NOT. Here is a REAL photo of me after 3 weeks of no sleep, two screaming babies tonight after baths, ate a cold dinner again, my husband and I snapping at each other to do stuff.... we probably must have seemed and sounded like a house full of crazy people! But all the sudden God stopped me when this little man just fell asleep on my shoulder... his little tiny breathing, the smell of his baby wash, and then Talia came up and hugged my leg. AND THATS what life is all about.... YES the messy hair, and the bloodshot eyes are a look I’d never been caught dead with before haha BUT it’s not about me anymore... it’s about my children and my amazing husband. We are going to make it!

Stop and close your eyes... 


I'm laying here in the hospital about to welcome our second baby into this world! So many thoughts and emotions have ran through my mind today.... and everyday leading up to this point. Fear of the unknown, scared l won't have the strength, excited to meet my little one, my love for him is already overflowing and I can't wait to hold him in my arms! 
And I have Yahweh to thank for this moment in my life... we get so caught up in being fearful of the unknown and then fighting with our spouses about things we try and plan out and can't control that we end up overlooking the many blessings God has given us!  

My husband was playing a soft Christian song right before I started to push and I shut my eyes for just a second, yet it felt like time stood still..... and the tears flooded my eyes.... for those few seconds life was so real, so exciting, and so frightening and yet I was beyond grateful and just started thanking my Heavenly Father. Thanking him for my husband He blessed me with, the man I GET to do laundry for, the man I GET to cook for, the man who appreciates the House I GET to keep clean... even if some days I feel like all I did was wash dishes and pick up after our 18 month old! 
God showed me that family is one of the most important parts of life and every little thing we GET to do for each other is such a blessing! And we need to stop, close our eyes, even if it is for a few seconds and thank Him for EVERYTHING He has given us. 
“Thank you Yahweh our God who as blessed us and sustained us and allowed us to reach this moment in life.”
