the touch

God has a way of touching you sometimes and usually it's when you least expect it.

The owner of my company that I work for has been struggling for YEARS to get pregnant!  It took her 3 years with her first and 4 years with her second.  Her and her husband (my boss) were trying for their third and just had a failed attempt at IVF.  They did everything.  Massage, acupunture, supplements, progresterone, etc... Nothing worked and this was their last time.

They were bummed it didn't work and I was bummed for them.

She was told by her dr. after her last failed IVF that basically there is no way, NO WAY, that they would get pregnant naturally.  That on your own your body just wouldn't do it.  If it were to happen, it would have to be a complete miracle with the moon and stars aligned.

She said, "We were at a party, I didn't have a care in the world.  We put having another child behind us and we were pounding red-bull and vodka's!  We were having a great time!"

She said this to me shortly after she told me that they were pregnant and expecting!  8 weeks along, on Monday!

We don't know why He does this to us, but somewhere up there He does have a plan and we just have to wait for it...

That's wonderful. Yes, He does have a plan. I firmly believe that.
Agreed. He's got a plan.
Odd that this time it included red bulls and vodkas. :) lol. (kidding.)

Seriously, though. I'm in agreement with the previous posters.

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 …
