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.

When is a Christmas Tree, Not a Christmas Tree?

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is the day that we usually go out and get our Christmas Tree. It is a budding tradition that I started a few years ago when I realized that traveling hours with many young children was not the best idea in December. When I decided that I was staying home...
