happiness, things and sweet friends

Thanks to Christina for breaking the mood and bringing some joy to this HELLISH weekend!  You're awesome!

How does this work?

1. Copy and paste the award OR save and attached the award to your blog
2. Link to the person who sent it to you
3. List 10 things that make you happy
4. Pass the aware to other bloggers, visit their blog, and let them know.

10 Things That Make Me Happy:

1. Receiving a Valentine's Day card from my husband {who always makes a big stink about how much he hates this holiday} and it says everything that I'd ever want to hear from him.  It was so nice that it sent me to tears.

2. Puppy kisses.

3. When my husband makes fun of me for something silly and we both are sent off our seats laughing.

4. Listening to a piano being played.

5. Talking to my kitty. 

6. Calling my mom on the phone.

7. My snuggie.

8. Waking up with both my dog asleep between my legs and my cat on my hip.

9. Catching an oldie but goodie movie on t.v., like Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, That Thing You Do, The Notebook, Top Gun, Father of the Bride, etc...

10. Sunny vacations with a pool, days spent laying on the beach and ocean waves running over your toes.

And, now for the nominees:

Beth, at SnuggleBugs, is a friend of a friend, but a really sweet girl that has written me some really nice and meaningful emails.  It's so nice to have such kind and caring readers that feel so comforted by knowing that they aren't alone in whatever they are struggling with.  She's new to blogging so go show her some love, k?

Danica at Happy Girl, is not only a huge supporter but one QUICK commentor.  I hardly have my post up and she's leaving some love for me!  I love that!!!

Leah, at Marital-Bless, a faithful reader who always says the kindess words that mean a lot to me even though they are few.  It's just the fact that I know you're supporting me and reading about our journey.  Thank you for always being there.

Natalie, at One Porkchop, who is completely hilarious and always keeping you on the edge of your seat with funny stories, give-aways and pictures of her equally beautiful daughter.  Not only is she a huge supporter but she's got a great blog and if you haven't already, go check it out!

Steph, at Mada's Place, who not only has me CRAVING an In and Out Burger because of her post today but also has such a creative eye... you've got to see her shops {that are closed because she's traveling}.  Seriously Steph, CRAVING and if it were possible, I would be requesting a burger to be sent here.

Thanks again Christina for pulling my out of this grumpy rut!

Aww! Thank you! I hate having to be known for my flaky commenting, but it's the truth. You've got my support all the way though!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
