A beautiful Sunday

Getting all of us up, fed, and dressed for Mass is almost an act of congress each week. We have to leave by 8:30 in order to make sure we get 2 spots in the nursery. It's all so worth it when I get to witness and be a part of the holy sacrifice of the Mass, a moment recently described as the time when heaven and earth kiss. To see my son and husband both learning about the catholic faith and sharing it with them is a joy! I really am blessed. Enjoy this beautiful day with your family!

A snippet

It has been a great couple of weeks.  The boys are in the full swing of school, football, gearing up for Halloween, to be quickly followed by Jackson's 6th birthday, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas.  All of it seems to be blurring together and creeping up on me faster than I can get everything planned.  Jackson is loving football this year and doing so well.  Last weekend, he threw a touchdown pass and also scored himself.  Bray on the otherhand only seems to like it if noone pulls his flags.  Not sure how we will finish out this season.

There have been many changes to our family this past year.  I finished up 2 years working towards becoming a sign language interpreter.  I am fluent but need another year of practicum to be able to sign for the state board.  I do what I can to stay involved and be a part of the deaf community.  I also began working fulltime, first for an ENT office in Fort Worth, then was graciously offered to work for my chiropractor's office which is just 1 mile from home.  Drew started day care and is doing great!  We were so blessed to have a live-in nanny, Cobi for the first part of the year and she was AMAZING!  Now she's back to college and doing well.

It's so easy to get caught up in the every day grind of life, but am really happy when I see my little boys growing and learning, especially about our faith.  They are little sponges that amaze me with all they know, some of which I'm not always prepare for.

Pictures from their football team will follow soon!

Hugs and blessings,

A renewal

This time last week I was searching for answers. Thanks to a great friend and mentor I made good decisions. I've decided to minimize Facebook time, be open about my feelings, beliefs,and not give up. It's hard to follow the narrow road, but it will all be worth it one day.
I am making positive changes and challenge you to do the same. Be kind to a stranger, call and old friend to say hello and let your family know how much they mean to you.
I'm constantly learning about myself and sharing this life with Jason and our boys is a blessing.
