11 years, 4 months, and 12 days later

July 7, 2018

Inspirational Leader

Have you ever felt that you can no longer go on anymore? Have you tried your hardest but still can get nowhere? Or if you get someone you are thrown back into day 1?

By no means am I back to where I was 11 years, 4 months, and 12 days ago.

There are always days that I start to feel like I shouldn’t be here nor made it through that but I did. It brings me chills just to even view these photos. I don’t want to even wonder how my parents, my family, and my friends felt.

Tonight is one of those nights and I am sure my time could be better spent filling out yet another job application or following up on one.

I am tired. I am worn out. I do feel like I have failed. I feel like I just need to give up trying.

God's Whispers of Truth

Mother’s Day is upon us now and this Mother’s Day I’m feeling so blessed and THANKFUL to be mom to four beautiful kids.

They are MY heros today and every day.

The months I was in bed, healing from this injury, my two oldest cooked my meals, their meals and my husband’s meals. They made sure I had fresh water by my bedside, medicines, and snacks. They did all the chores, fed the animals, washed dishes, and kept up with their schoolwork.

Sometimes they got discouraged but God kept them strong.

Now I’m able to do all those chores again, with a little help, of course.

Still, they don’t have a mom who can take them out to play at parks, and get ice cream, and do fun things anymore. (Daddy does that.) They don’t have someone who can go on long adventures like we could before. Someone who is…
