When God Shows Up

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I was dealing with a horrible hormonal headache from annolvuatory bleeding. I was feeling so low and hopeless. Feeling that another child would probably not be in my future. What if something happened during my D&C that has caused an eternal issue? What if I’m not ovulating and…

Getting through the storm

Arkansas weather is pretty crazy, unpredictable, and quite erratic at times. Monday it was cold and damp with an high of 38 degrees. Yesterday it was gorgeous and sunny reaching a lovely 70 degrees. My kind of weather for sure. With the drastic change in temperature from day to day we see a lot of…

Livin’ that Oily Life

First, I want to start off by saying I’m not one of those people who says essential oils cured me or fixed all my problems.  No, they actually haven’t.  But, they have helped me and my family tremendously and because of that I want to write some blogs about what has and HAS NOT worked…

The Wait

Today is the day.  The day I get to take a pregnancy test.  You go to bed the night before, excited, hopeful. But before I even get out of bed, I know.  I’m hurting. Cramping.  I get up to go the bathroom and it’s confirmed.  We’re starting over.  Another month.  Another 30 days.  More stressful…
