My World Changer

This weekend I learned that being a Mom means sometimes watching from the sideline as your child’s heart breaks. It also means watching them become better than you ever were.  This weekend my oldest son had to be in two different places at once. He was in a big Bible Bowl competition (quick recall of […]

For my guy… 

I love you because of your work ethic, which is undeniable.  I  love you because you have great eyes that are especially great when you have on a green shirt. I love you because you have said how horrific childbirth is to witness, but you were at my side through every second all 4 times. […]


Today, Bobby and the big boys head back to school and work. It’s been so great being off and having a break from the craziness of our schedules to experience the craziness of Christmas. Ha-ha.  We’ve had a great week and half and I have come to realize even more this past week how lucky […]
