I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday Y’all!

After last week’s storm, this beautiful week was just what we needed. Warm weather, open windows, a dry basement and hot water. We are so thankful for all of those things!

Tonight we managed to get the kids out the door after dinner for an evening walk, something that we haven’t done as a whole family in ages. Before Wee Nut was born, we used to go for walks several times a weeks, almost every night. We used to be a super active family, regulars at the YMCA the kids took classes 4-5 a week and Mr Wall Nut and I used to work out for a couple of hours after the kids classes and I was doing both cardio and weight training up until a few weeks before Owee was born. The only reason I stopped was because he was so huge and my round ligament caused me too much pain to even do the treadmill or elliptical. We thought that we would be back to working out 6 weeks after he was born, but living in the “chd bubble” the Y was a no go and we never got back into the habit of evening walks again.

It was so nice to walk around the neighborhood as a family again and I am Thankful for the time we had tonight.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a job, we still have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.

What are you Thankful for today?

    Oh for days you can walk outside! It has rained here pretty much all week, but we did manage to go outside yesterday. Glad you got to get out!
