Fall time fun!

Just a few months ago I was caught up in my own emotional battle from the bipolar that I was “diagnosed with”. Since then I have been building my relationship with the Lord.

I am amazed at the change in my home. I not only feel peace but I find myself wanting to create more enjoyable moments for the family.

Our most recent was jumping in the leaves.

The kids really enjoyed it.

Having a memorable moment with my little ones was wonderful, but I also got something extra out of the moment.

I really enjoy photography. This was a great opportunity to nurture one of my interests as an individual while still being a loving and attentive mother.

I am grateful that I gave my life to the Lord. I know that the only reason things are changing in our life is because I opened the door of my heart to Jesus.

I still have things to work on, but with Jesus in my heart the walls are going to come down.

This one moment of fun is a great start to a wonderful future for our family.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. May you have a blessed day.

Return from oblivion

It has been some time since my last post.  I’ve been off discovering who I am in Christ.  My main focus has been trying to find balance between my personal relationship with the Lord, providing for my family, and having a relationship with my family.

I have also been learning more about myself as an individual.  This journey has brought many things to my attention.  The most important thing I have learned though, and firmly believe with all my heart, is that all things are possible as long as I walk with the Lord throughout my day.

I am grateful for the time I took for myself, but I am ready to start sharing all the things I have and will learn with all of you.

I am glad to be back and look forward to whats to come.

Have a blessed and wonderful day.  Till next time.  🙂

 

Project: This is home!

Recently I moved into my own place.  I live in a small town so there wasn’t much to choose from.  Especially since I’m on a tight budget.  I found a place that has just enough space and is close enough to walk everywhere I need to go.

The thing is, is this place was a mess!  The previous tenants had left the place trashed.  There are holes in the wall that need repair.  The walls need to be painted.  he carpets need a good cleaning.  This is just what needs to be done for the home itself. Continue reading

Fear no more

When I started this blog I was afraid.  I was scared that if I opened up and let the world know who I was that I would be judged for having bipolar and border line personality disorder.  So I made my blog anonymous, but I notice it is hindering my creative side.  It’s taking away from my authenticity.  Therefore, over the next few days I will be changing my about me page to real names and will even start posting pictures of us.

I am no longer afraid of who I am.  I am free to be me.  I have come to terms with this.

If anyone feels the need to judge me that is their deal.  It is life.  People judge.

I look forward to opening up and sharing more about me and my family, and how we deal everyday with this mishaps of life as well as the joys.  I look forward to sharing the tips I’ve learned along the way.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read.  Pleasant journey to you.  Till next time.  🙂

Lifes little wonders

The other day when I took my kids to the park I decided to bring my new camera along.  I was so excited about it that I started taking pictures of what ever I found interesting.  I took many pictures of flowers.

I really got excited about this one because as I took the picture the grasshopper landed on it just long enough to get the shot.  It reminded me of the wonders of life.  How quickly they can come and go.

Pay attention and you will see more wonders before they pass you by.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  Pleasant journeys.

I Wanna Work From Home!

For years I’ve been trying to work from home, but I had given up. I got tired of trying to push a business onto someone who really was interested.  I experienced several hurdles, many of which stemmed from having bipolar and borderline personality.  Another hurdle was the financial issues that I went through.

I never let go of the idea that it is possible to earn an income doing something I love. Over the last few months I have been trying to decipher all sorts of information, trying to pin point exactly what I want to do without being obtrusive to others.

Unintentianal Broken Promises

“Hey Mom,  do you think I can go to my friends on Friday?” Wild Flower asks on Tuesday.

“Sure, that sounds ok” I say.

Friday comes along and I’m having an awful day.  Binks is off the wall with his ADHD, and I’m lurking on the point of sullen depression from the stress.  I haven’t showered because I’ve spent the whole day just trying to get Binks to sit still for 3 minutes.
