Wednesday, September 2, 2015 has been so long since I have written here. 

Jude was just a baby...the other kiddos just babies really themselves. Life has passed out it's fair ( and unfair) share of twists, turns, and curve balls. 

We have gone from a homeschooling family with a stay at home mommy to a public schooling family with a mommy working full-time. 

That is about to change, again...

I am coming back home to be with our 3-year old and to pursue a few passions of mine. 

The passion of my soul is to be the best, most present mama I can be...even if they are in public school. I have yearned and prayed to be home again with my babies...That may or may not mean bringing some or all home again for school. For now they will stay where they are. I will be blessed to spend my days with my youngest. 

After the blessed roles of wife and mommy I will be sharing my new found love, Plexus, as well as writing and helping with childbirth. 

I am so excited, and quite a bit fearful, of these new ventures...

I thank the Lord for his grace and blessing to get through and to walk in His path for us!

Spring has come. With it...I am feeling a sense of renewal. For myself.

The last season has been tough. I have felt as though I am living life looking through frosted glass. There has been much beauty and much to be thankful for and find joy in, but I haven't been able to truly see it or appreciate it.


The God I serve. The One who loves me enough to deal with all of my ups and downs. My struggles and complaints. He has reached out His loving hand. He has lifted me up from my despair.

There are changes that are going to come that Jesse and I cannot foresee, only feel. But, I know that my God loves me and He alone will guide my family through.

The glass around me is shattered and has been swept away.

Beauty and Joy are my friends. And my guides back to the path God has placed me on and the personality He has gifted me with.

And it is well with my soul...

Another few months has passed. I long to journal the events we are making memories through, but in order to enjoy them I have just had buckle up and be. Life here moves at a break-neck pace more often than not. As one child's season to shine comes to the years end, another child's begins. Through swim, baseball, basketball, and soccer...homeschool, art, and friends...each child having his or her moment to shine...I watch them, encourage them, and console them from time to time. Always there, always supporting.

A mother. That is what I am. 

Mothering. That is my mission.

Mothering now. Reflecting later.
