I am a wife ,Mother of two. Who lives with my family in the country with wildlife right out my front yard foxes turkeys our daily visitors along with an abundance of birds squirrels running all over. So welcome to my word! I decided this was the right time to start this blog after my oldest graduated from High School and my youngest is growing just as fast ,he has now graduated from high school this past June …it amazes me …where the time went?
When I was pregnant with my daughter my father was diagnosed with cancer which was such an un believable mixed feeling of emotions ,happy I was pregnant but sad for my Dad ,when my daughter Jamie was 6 months old he passed away. I was happy that he had time to spend with her. I never imagined this would happened but who does. I kept thinking how unfair it all was but his words echoed in my head that this would be her world now and it is a beautiful world just like her. I was such a daddy’s girl there was nothing he wouldn’t do for me and my dad said I needed to focus on her before he passed …so that’s what I did . My daughter has brought me so much joy and she helped me get through this tough time and keep me moving forward. Watching her grow and her big brown eyes looking up at me I knew I needed to step up and raise her and listen to my father.She brought so much joy to my Mom as well sadly a year later she passed, she had health complications , I think she died of a broken heart. I believe that is possible they had known each other since they were kid’s their bond was so deep. . Life was so busy caring for Jamie watching her grow my husband and I agreed that it was a good thing for me to be a
Stay at home Mom. Best decision ever ,Five years later my youngest was born, my Son Seth my happy baby bundle of energy and the fascination for running since the day he could first walk my two kid’s couldn’t be more opposite ,as shy and conscientious my daughter is and strong willed with a heart of gold and the warmth she gives out when your near her is amazing .My Son is kind hearted a charmer as well but so motivated the sky is the limit for him attitude naive that life just falls in your lap yes still growing learning. But is finding he does need to work for what he wants a trait that he does well he is very stubborn and very social and physically active his energy is unbelievable ,his dreams are so big that it scares me how out of reach they may be who knows maybe he will reach them I hope so he works hard for them.I have always had to have a lot of energy to keep up with him and always be one step ahead of him to keep him safe my daughter alway by my side hahaha I wouldn’t have them him any other way .My daughter is 22and my son is now just turned 18 .life is less busy now . My daughter still lives at home but has her own living space downstairs with her cat Miss Abigail ,she is happily busy with her job ,friends, and boyfriend . my son is very independent for his age busy with getting on with the next chapter in his life ,work college but Before college heading to Basic traing in Oct for the Army National Guards his passion is biking, hiking running , yes the Army and he loves his friends .so I am finding I have more time to myself ….sometimes a good thing sometimes not, I am a person who loves to take care of people and this is what I have done for 20 years this is all I know. …so I am having a hard time adjusting which I am sure this is nothing new for other mothers to hear so I thought since I like to write and always have since I was a teenager I thought I would try starting a blog so I will use this as a new chapter in my life to help find myself once again and be someone else besides a mom and hopefully you can share my new chapter with me with all the new changes with random day to day family life moments, the laughter the tears that I will post in my blog. Some of you will enjoy some will probably find it boring, if you do like it please let me know I would love some feedback a bit more about myself besides the love of taking care of people I love my morning coffee , I’m always ready for a good conversation, love the night time hours where I do my best thinking and writing , not a morning person,I love to read and did I mention I love to talk anytime day or night (hahaha) I love honest loyal people I have no time for drama of others in my life so if your looking for good ol down to earth simple living contents of posts of my world you will find it here I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I like writing here!
