As most of you know, I have been going through some MAJOR sleep deprivation and it doesn't seem to be bringing out the best in me...HA!

This past year has been the most wonderful year of my life but also the most stressful. I am constantly trying to rouse the strength to be a better mom, wife, daughter, employee and the list goes on and on. I finally hit rock bottom this week and went to our Lord in prayer pleading with him for strength and peace.

In the past two years I have graduated college, gotten married, started a career, changed a career, bought a house, lost the house I grew up in, and had a baby. Through all of it I was strong. I was posed. I was calm. I was in charge...HA!

Then, this past week it all caught up with me. I hit rock bottom and for some reason I wondered why. I'm not a weakling. I am a strong, tenious, go getter, full of independence. WRONG!

That is when the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart. I am none of those things. I am an exhausted, weak, sinner who allowed the enemy to fool her into thinking she could do it on her own. I am weak BUT he is strong!

You see through all of this I have tried to be (and have been for the most part) strong. But that is not what God intended. His grace is sufficient. So, I must lean on, trust and depend on him.

Since that moment I have found a new peace and one unlike any other I have ever experienced. You see, God had to take me to the point of complete exhaustion and desperation to show me that I needed him to be my sustainer.

So, I enter a new season in my life and a new depth in my walk with Christ because I realize that it is HE who sustains me. Only in him am I truly strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
