About Me

My photo
Hi there! I'm a mom of 3 boys and happily married to my husband for the past 13 yrs! I work full time and try and take care of everything home related as well- basically I'm tired and loving life! I love to try new things- especially cooking! I love the outdoors, music, old movies, church, and my family!

Long time no Post (sorry it's a serious one)

So... I wanted to start this up again. Just me, my keyboard, and anyone who wanted to read. There's been a lot of changes in my life but that would take way to long to write about and no one wants that much detail (it wasn't  juicy or exciting anyway.) I do however want to talk about the current events unfolding close to home here in Texas. Many people have seen by now the devastation that has hit Texas and other surrounding states- it's just sad.  I thank God that my family and friends are safe but at the same have feelings of sadness and grief for those less fortunate. I do however see this as a wonderful opportunity for people to gather together to help and assist perfect strangers. There is not greater feeling or blessing than that of service. I always tell my boys to go by the Golden Rule- " Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Sometimes it's a lost statement or it gets taken the wrong way but, Mother Natures current events are a prefect way for my husband and me to show by example the TRUE meaning behind the rule. There is a power behind a stranger helping strangers that out shines the dark in the world and brings light to situations. Service is not to just be given during disasters but we should strive to do so on an everyday basis. It's as simple as helping someone with their groceries, helping at a local shelter, giving aid to the local teachers, making cookies for a friend who's having a bad day, or visiting a retirement home. It's the little acts of service and love that makes our heart fill with love for people we don't even know, and that in itself is a blessing.
