• Three Year Old Josiah

    Happy Birthday Josiah!

    Today Josiah turned seven years old! I have a second grader now…where did the time go? It doesn’t feel like it was already seven years ago when I was blessed with one of my best friends, Josiah Cristian. I rememeber not being able to sleep for the first few months because I would wake up and want to stare at him all night.  His existence changed so many parts of my life, he made me want to be the best mom I could be, and I wanted to show God how much I appreciated his wonderful gift.  I want Josiah to use his good heart to be the very best version…

    Life Lesson: Focus on Yourself

    “Blowing out somebody else’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any brighter.” I don’t remember who said this, but I heard it from my sixth grade Quest teacher (a half hour life class for students to talk about feelings). I’ve never been the kind of person to judge or make fun of someone, because I know I’m not perfect.  I’m not surprised, but always amazed at the people who think they will look better, more interesting, or draw attention by talking down about other people.  I can never understand those that would spend so much energy putting others down. Some say people do it because jealousy, insecurity, peer pressure, bored, immature, or other reasons. Whatever the reason,…

    Life Lesson: Better Late

    Saw this on a license plate the other day and it really hit home. It’s never too late to head in the right direction.  It’s better late than never.
