I am a Sweetheart to One and a Mommy to Four Loveable Babes, one of which is smiling down on us from Heaven. I am learning to dance in the rain. Come with me on my journey as I make the most out of Life's mud puddles.

Put on your rain boots. Great adventure lies ahead.

Today - after finding myself in the aisle of Costco sobbing - I am grateful for Strawberries. Big, fat, juicy creations of the Divine. This afternoon was crappy. Majorly. I've been a mess. But a handful of those deluctable treats got me through until bedtime when I immersed myself in a tub of hot water. I know that the Lord loves me and that ALL good things in my life come from Him. So today I acknowledge His gift of Strawberries to me, His daughter, and thank Him for them. They were delish. Truly.

I think it's time for another handful.


  1. Oh how I wish I could have hugged you at Costco. So sorry you had a rough day. Loves to you.

  2. Hi there. You don't know me, but I am also an angel mommy. I just wanted to say that I am so so sorry for your loss. I know your pain is fresh, but I think that your attitude and they way you are handling this is absolutely REMARKABLE. It's hard, no doubt about it...but keep doing what you are doing. Your sweet Bennett is there...especially on days like today. I was also at Costco today and bought strawberries. Now every single time I eat one, I'll say a little prayer for you and your sweet family. God Bless.
