Well, hi everyone! My plan is not to blog anymore. It's been quite a journey. What started as an information page to tell Joel's story turned into a grieving journey then to just random everyday life and then into a very tough journey of making this place where i have posted several entry's of "real life situations." Someone desired an update about the many many posts I had up about our finances which I did delete most I think. It's so hard to be real and then people get mad for being or showing what "real life" is. So, I don't have news of anything really being different. Hanging by a thread I guess you might say. When your in debt $48,000 (which I had no idea about) you might say there's not much freedom to move forward. When you resort to selling a chair to buy a phone, pawning goods for something, selling coins to buy groceries, selling old clothes to buy new clothes, selling decor to have a little extra cash, it pretty much sums up that the road is tough for now. But, life is life and you just get up and breath everyday and find little bits happiness in a cup of coffee or a walk through a flower garden or a trip given to you by your very own wonderful kids happening for me soon. I'm sorry to leave on such a sad and not very positive note but hey, sometimes lemons are used for many different ailments! 

So farewell, unless there's an earth shattering happening I'm off to see the world one way or another!! 

Much love, 


my most precious blessings besides my kids!

It's here! Cold cold cold!! I seriously battle winter blues/depression this time of year!! I think I might have to get one of those happy lights that helps people with feeling down and lethargic with being stuck inside!! I have literally cleaned and done everything possible inside!  I really have tons of projects I would love to do but resources won't allow that for now. The kids and I have been doing a word brain app on our phones! Ha! Definitely need more brain work! Mercy did pretty good but then it got too hard for her! 

Hope you all have a wonderful new year and may the lord bless us all with endurance to make it to Summer!! Ha!!
