Our Pets (also our family)


via Daily Prompt: Provoke

So I would normally think of “provoke” in a bad way, like you’re provoking someone to do something bad 🍩🍪🍰 but as I currently write this my cat (Fluffy Bubbles) is provoking our tiny toy poodle(Max) and it’s pretty darn funny 😆

Find myself alone…

Good morning friends! So it worked out this week that I have today off and all 3 of my kids are in school…and I am ALONE 🙃what to do?? Take a nap, chill and watch tv, even though I so badly wanted to do nothing! I went for a run, alone… well and my Cooper. But I didn’t feel rushed and I knew there was No one at home needing me. It was so nice and exactly what I needed! I jammed to my Christian songs that make me sometimes cry (but encouraging) and then my pop music that makes me want to run faster 😜

However, in all honesty, it is hard for me to take time away, so I am thankful the Lord knew I needed this and gave me a few hours!

Pray. Wait. Trust. ❤️

Christmas Break for kids…not for me

This is the time of year, where it is especially hard being a working mom! Right up there with Summer break! Kids are off of school and mom has to work 😦

It is so hard  to know my kids are at home (probably having a ton of fun) and I’m away from them all day…working!

I mean, I am happy I can contribute to our family income and I DO like my job, but I love to be with my kids (and hubby too) and just be together! And this year seems even more special because this is the first Christmas without my dad and it has been especially hard on everyone.

However, I am thankful I no longer have to work weekends and holidays and I had off 3 days to be with family and I am blessed to be where I am at in my career. Trying to stay positive and finding the blessing!

And by the way, hope everyone had a safe, blessed Christmas!
