- I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

We "Dated" for 7 months and were married (SUPER YOUNG) we did not "HAVE TO" get married (which we are asked a LOT) we were just young and thought we had all the answers. (He was 17 I was.........15)I know I know...It's just WAY too young to get married.
I realize that now.
I realize it everytime I look at my 23 year old
My 19 year old
my 16 year old
I do know.
I don't recommend it - but it was how we made it work.
STUBBORN HARD HEADED DETERMINED K I D S!
Our first child was born when I was 17.
The first year of marriage was AWFUL - how we survived I'll never know - THANK YOU GOD!! Because HE really is the only way it happened!
So we survived!
We eventually THRIVED!
We have had MORE than our share of trials and tribulations - I assure you.
We even spent some time separated...that was when we truly realized what we had and what each other meant to us.
Our marriage has survived AMAZINGLY.
So...when Valentines day rolls around this year we have so much to smile about.
So much love
l o v e .......in sickness in health, in good times and bad
till death do us part.
We "vowed" it.
We meant it.
Now I am asking myself just 23 days away from Valentines day...
do I SHOW IT?
Does he know without a doubt? Am I a loving caring wife or am I a nagging harping wife??
Do the kids KNOW that we are a team....or do I undermine him by disagreeing with him in FRONT of them?...sigh... (yeah...gotta work on SO many things)
I am going to be joining up over at: Women living well
I have accepted the challenge (Thank you Conny)
The challenge to "Bless his heart"
I hope you'll join in the fun.
You KNOW it's win win of course :)
With all my heart!
