About Me

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!

It's Thankful Thursday again

Oh ........my baby boy had his very first Merry Go-Round ride a few weeks ago. At first he was NOT sure about it. Then as the music came on he started to relax. When the horse started to move up and down he looked over at me with a bit of worry in his little face. I gave him my biggest smile and patted his back -I said "Yay! You're on a merry go-round! It's okay!! I'm right here!"

Finally when he was on it for a few seconds he looked over and gave me this smile - The wonder in his little eyes as he looked at the bright lights and the room going round in circles - filled my heart.....

I have to admit - our life has been very "MERRY GO ROUND-ISH" lately.

Seems like by the time I get to THURSDAY I am SO very ready for a weekend I think I may.

So...Thankful Thursday helps me to look at a few things I am thankful for (and it helps me focus on the blessings...not the craziness)

Thank you for all of you who have been keeping up the prayers about our challenges lately - I will say TODDLERS are SO MUCH EASIER than ADULT CHILDREN!! Whew!! SERIOUSLY!!!

I know when I start to worry - and the room starts to spin....I will listen for God....because I know He is saying "You're on a Merry go round! It's okay! I'm right here!"

May you each be blessed beyond measure this weekend (and always!)

With all my heart ~


  1. Oh yes.

    My life has definitely been a merry-go-round.

    And ... Oh. My. Yes. ... life with toddlers is definitely easier than parenting young adults. That can get downright scary sometimes.

    Hope your weekend is BLESSED! I am going to steal away for some quiet "mama time".
