Finding Me

I woke up one recent day and realized I really don't like myself.  There are parts of me that I absolutely love and parts of me that need repair.  There are lost parts that I'd like to find again and so many parts that I'd like to just change and remove from myself.

This year will be the year I work on all those things.  I wish to find myself, my happiness and love and light again.  I want to bring back the joy and the girl I should have been that I have allowed to be destroyed by life itself.

Life is a hard journey and it changes us, sometimes without even realizing it.  Over time we stop doing things that we love, things that make us unique.  We conform and just live day to day instead of really living life to the fullest.  The journey becomes heavy and a struggle.

It's time to find me - to bring to the front the joy of life and to live.  No reason to be scared as I am who I am and who God made me to be.  He has never failed me and He will not let me down.  I want to shine as He intended me to and with His help and His blessing I will do just that.

Mid January Update

Another week has passed filled with so many things to do.  The weather hasn't allowed much outside time so the kids are climbing the walls inside the house.  They've invented their own fun, playing with each other, reading, working on building projects - whatever they can come up with to burn off that pent up energy.

January is passing fast and this month is filled with appointments for us  now that we are finally past the Flu and Bronchitis of the past few weeks.  We have neurology, therapy, and genetics.  We are adding in an eye doctor appointment and more therapy as well.  Life is never not busy around here.

All we can do is take it day by day but I'm really hoping some pretty weather comes soon so the kids can get outside, run and play.   Until then we play things by ear.  See ya next time...

When starting over and redoing one's life, where does one begin?  What do you even start with?  Yourself? Your family? Home? Life?

How do you decide what's the main thing to work on first?  Then there are the goals to set.  Which goals come first? Which ones get the most attention?  How do you chose one over another?

Where do you even begin to begin?

I'm sure I am not the only one asking these questions.  I'm sure they've passed through minds thousands of times before mine.  I'm just as sure that someone else is asking these same questions right now, looking over their life and wondering where to begin with it all.

So where would you start?  What's your story?  Share with me and let's all start again to find the way.

Life's Journey

The world can change in a blink of an eye and life can change in a simple heartbeat.  Nothing stays the same and we must always keep going.  Moving forward, looking for the next step, the next path we should take to continue on.

Life's a journey.  It's a time traveled, well walked path that takes us onward even when we aren't ready to move on.  Things end, new things begin and somehow we all make it through.

We aren't given a choice to live.  We are born.  We move inch by inch every day to find our worth in this world.  Our existence and purpose is ours alone to glorify that which we cannot see.

Simply put, we live because we are born to live.

There is no magic way to get through the days.  There is no winner.  There is no competition.  We are here to be here for one thing only: God's Glory.

Sometimes we forget this and need just that small reminder where we are slightly knocked and sometimes pummeled by the trials set forth upon us to make us into better people.  Our lives are ours to live but they are ours only to bring forth the beauty of the Human Spirit and breath God in the day to day for others to see His existence and His love through us.

God is the most important aspect of this World.  All things must come back to him.  Life cycles until we find Heaven again, from the beginning through to the end.

God is the glory and the joy of the world.  Faith in Him leads you to where you should be in life.  Never give up hope.  Hold on to that single mustard seed of Faith and let him show you where you should go as you travel through this journey called Life.

December Update

It's been a month since I posted on the blog.  I really was feeling burnt out and just needed a long break.  Plus I was sick with strep for two weeks and simply did not feel up to writing anything.

My life is ever chaotic but full.  There is always so much going on.  It's never-ending but I'm thankful we have so many activities to keep us busy.

Jackson has therapy every Monday in Charleston right now but that should be ending soon.  It's for his Parent - Child Interactive Therapy and it's been amazing for us.  His therapist is so impressed with our family and how quickly we have achieved our goals.  It's been great for me too because it's assured me that I have this Momma thing down.  Parenting comes easy to me even when I feel like I'm barely keeping it together.  I always knew I was born to be a Momma.

Jackson also has therapy on Tuesday's where we always have.  He's my third child at NextStep.  They are amazing to work with.

Last week, Jack was fitted for braces and shoes for his feet as requested by his wonderful therapist.  The braces fit inside his shoes and help with his arch support.  They keep his ankles from twisting and help him balance better.  At least that is the hope.  If these don't work, he will get ankle supports to help him gain strength in his legs and feet.  The goal is to prevent him from having similar issues as Emmalee has.

Laycie began back with her speech therapy last week as well.  She's officially done with physical and occupational therapy.  Her speech is still challenging though so she will continue with that.  I really need to get her an appt to have her tongue tie checked and discuss surgery options for it.  I just dread having her suffer with having that done.

She has a neurology appt on Monday.  We will see how she is doing and if she has lost any more weight.  If so, she will be switching medications again which is always a challenge for her.  The doctor had some suggestions for us that we will discuss at this visit.  Not sure what they exactly are but I trust his opinion on the matter.

Winston and Emmalee are doing great as always.  At the neuro Monday, I will bring up Emma's followup for her feet so we can see where we are on that.  I'm so past ready for the doctors to get rolling with a treatment plan.

So that is our most recent update.  Life is just so busy right now and Christmas time is always exceptionally busy for us.  Hope you are all well!  God bless!
