Reflecting on Family

Ok… one thing everyone should know is that everyone has a few “weird” people in their family. You know I’m right… right?

Many times we shake our head at those people and just throw them to the side. Sometimes we tolerate them, but secretly wish they would get a brainwash and start acting “normal”.

One thing I have to say is that despite who in my family is a little odd (and sometimes it is me!) we all really love each other and understand the importance of sticking together. We all understand the importance of learning and being able to kiss and make up.

To all of my family members both close and extended family – I LOVE YOU. You may not understand everything I am doing right now… or EVER, but I want you to know that I love you and think of you often.

I have learned that keeping my core family together is most important. My husband and my kids have to be put before extended family. If we allow outside influences to come in and upset our home, that is a recipe for defeat and a horrible family life. While other people may mean well, we have to keep our families together and when our kids go away, we have to allow them to do the same thing.

My Lovely Marriage

The first thing I want to post on my new blog portion of this site is about my partner in life. This man has been through so much with me and he still treat me like a princess. He is an amazing father. He can make anyone laugh, even when they are feeling down. He always helps keep me going in the right direction and going full steam ahead. He has also served in the military and received many awards… HONEY… I LOVE YOU!

I remember the first time that I saw my sweetheart. I was working as a waitress and he was there on his 19th birthday. He didn’t even want to be there, but he ended up telling his uncle that he was going to date me… even before he met me. Talk about confident, right? šŸ˜‰

He was RIGHT. We started dating 2 weeks later, moved in together 2 weeks after that and 3 months later we were married. Since then we’ve had 2 boys totaling 3 bouncing boys that we get the honor andĀ privilegedĀ to raise and teach to be men of integrity.

Our lives only continue to get better and better. I am so glad that we are life partners!
