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.

You know it figures that we get the furnace dried out and lit and it was so nice overnight that we didn’t even need it last night. Today was beautiful, the windows were open and it filled my house with the damp muddy smell of spring. It think it is going to be a...

10 Things Tuesday

I know how completely ineffective it is to try to host a blog hop and not get it posted until the end of the day. That doesn’t usually stop me from trying though. I just got off the phone with some great Mended Little Hearts leaders for Virgina and SW Pennsylvania. I love conference...

It wasn’t until yesterday, Valentines Day that I realized that I still have my Christmas tree up. Kinda hard to believe that I forgot that it was still standing there in the corner of the dinning room, but it is. It is especially hard to believe because I made of point of declaring that...

Take It On Tuesday!

At the moment, my house is a disaster. Doing the dishes consists of stacking them up so they take up the least amount of space. Picking up the toys consists of pushing them all in a pile at one end of the room. The bathroom hasn’t been cleaned in days and I am afraid...
