Grayden's 9th Birthday!

Friday, May 18, 2018

We had such a great time celebrating Grayden's birthday! It was fun having him home all day since it was a Saturday!

Birthday cinnamon roll for breakfast!

He chose Pizza Ranch for his special birthday dinner with us!



When we got home from our special night out we had an extra little surprise of him. 
His very own fishing pole with a little tackle box.

Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 13, 2018

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!


Don’t let the coordinated outfits ( I just can’t help myself) fool you into thinking I have it all together! I’m not the great mom I thought I’d be. I get angry, I lose my patience and I fail everyday. But I’m so thankful that God’s mercies are new every morning, and that He saw me fit to be these 3 precious kids mom. 
I didn’t become a mom the way I thought I would. I have a son in Heaven and my 3 children here each have a completely unique set of genes. But I’m so thankful for God’s great plan and His faithfulness. 
Two of my children call me “mom” but I didn’t carry them in my body or birth them. Their first moms sacrificed their own desires for our benefit. I’m so grateful for those women, but I recognize their loss was my gain. And that’s a heavy load to carry. 
If your journey to motherhood isn’t what you thought it would be, or the relationship with your mom isn’t what you thought it would be, if your mom isn’t here to celebrate, or whatever it might be that would make today painful for you please know my prayers are with you today!

Happy 9th Birthday Grayden!

Saturday, May 12, 2018


This morning you declared that you’re half way to being an adult, and then you checked if you had armpit hair yet. I know you’re growing up, but you’ll always be my special little boy who I prayed so desperately for!
You are kind, thoughtful, helpful and affectionate. I know God has something really special planned for your life! He’s already used you to change mine! My prayer is that you’ll continue to seek Him and love Him with all your heart. 
I love you Gray!
-Momma
