I Am Okay

It's easier to move on if you weren't birthed by one. (Narcissistic Personality Disorder Mother) It takes honesty, work, faith, and good friends who become your family. The scars last a lifetime but you will be okay. I am okay. Just be real, authentic, and share your life with people who matter and will accept you for who you are.

God Is Good

If I didn’t have faith in our Creator or what Christ did for me on the cross my head would explode. I thank God every single day for my faith, for giving me eyes to see, ears to hear, and for loving me in spite of what happens or how I feel about it. Amen and Amen.

Xmas Reading Adventure

Our kids are going on a Xmas Reading Adventure and they are SUPER EXCITED about it too! What I did was mix up some old books with new books. They are mostly Christmas stories and chapter books the girls have never seen. Then I spent a good portion of the day wrapping them up! Each day in December the girls will have a book to unwrap and read for the day. They have to finish the book to go on. I’m sure some books will finish quicker than others. Will they enjoy their Xmas Reading Adventure? We will soon see!

When My Heart is Overwhelmed

When my heart is overwhelmed
Lead me to the
That is higher than I!
Proverbs 26:1

You've Been Warned!

I will be doing more of this in the months and years to come.

By the grace of God I have healed and am unashamed of my story.

You don’t want to fuck with me!

That Yarn: Granny Squares

Here's what I did with that yarn I bought.

Those aren’t all the granny squares but just a snippet of what I plan to do with them.

That’s the general layout just to give you an idea on how I plan to piece them together.

What do you think?

I Love to Crochet

I’ve been working on a “Mammas Blanket” for Foo Foo. She is obsessed with Kinsley and Fiona’s Mammas Blankets so I thought it was time to make her one too. These are the colors I picked up at the store.

Foo Foo’s Mammas Blanket is going to be made with Granny Squares. Some of the squares will be solid colors and others will be multi-colored. I’m just about done making the Granny Squares.

It has taken me about two weeks to crochet all the Granny Squares. Once I get those done I will lay them out to see how I want to put them all together. There are tons of joining methods out there but for the sake of time I think I’m going to go with a basic Whip Stitch with my Yarn Needle.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet. She started me out crocheting chains when I was a little girl and the rest is history! Every time I crochet something I think of her and can see her crocheting in my mind. I think she’s watching over me and smiles when she sees me doing it.

I am planning to post more pictures as I complete Crochet projects. If you have any questions about what I’m doing or Crochet Questions in general leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer your questions. Maybe this blog will turn into a basic Crochet Tutorial. You might teach me something too!

Everyone Is On the Mend

Fiona is not sick any more – Hooray!

Kinsley is not sick any more – Hooray!

My 6 month mammogram check up went very well. So well, I no longer need to be seen every 6 six months. I am very happy about that!

All of us got our flu shots. We had sore arms for a couple of days but that’s okay because we are determined not to be sick.

How about you?

What have you been up to lately?
