Hello friends!

Thank you for coming to visit. I am so excited to be sharing with you and hopefully, you will share with me to!

We all have families, but no 2 are the same and they all function different at different times. Wouldn’t it be great if family was harmonious ALL the time? The kids didn’t fuss, dinner was always ready on time, the house was always clean…yada yada yada….you get the point! Fact is, that’s just not realistic. For me, my emotions and energy are up and down hourly! Ok, maybe not hourly, but they definitely change throughout the day. As a wife, mother of 8 (yes, I said 8) and being gainfully employed……..life gets hectic! Never enough hours in the day to take care of my family and find time for me! This pandemic ony adds to my stress level! I know I am preaching to the choir, as spouses and parents we do what we have to do to make it work. Unfortunately, a lot of times that means WE put ourselves LAST. Not only ourselves, but our marriages, dreams, wants, and needs. My way of justifying being last was always, “my kids come before me, they didn’t ask to be here.” True statement, but I still should have made time to put me first.

Fast forward, Here I am 20 years into my marriage, my youngest is 14 and I am not sure who I am or what my purpose is. Sad, but true! I don’t have any babies. I’m at a point in life where I should be able to do me…at least a little bit! The problem is, ummmmm what am I supposed to be doing??? I was a house wife for most of the 20 years and while I was in the midst of raising my children and supporting my husband, I FORGOT about me! I know I am not alone in this revelation! I’m 49 and my brain is SPINNING trying to figure out just who I am. Everyone wants to know their purpose and gifts…..don’t they? I have some ideas of what my gifts are, but tapping into them and using them…..well, that’s another story!

That’s where my blog comes in! I know there has to be others that are walking in my shoes! Let’s figure it out together! I have some great life experiences, some not so great life experiences, and talents I want to share with you. I know some of you have some things you would like to share as well! Some times it just takes the right person to say the right thing at the right time and BOOM….it clicks! Lets encourage and empower one another! I plan to post at least once a week, sometimes more. Until then….. Keep pushing, trust the process, and BELIEVE!

Thanks for stopping by & come back soon!
