About YOU

This morning somewhere in between brushing baby boy's teeth where he attempted poking my left eyeball out of it's socket and extracting a strand of yellow playdough out of little-toddler girl's nose, I thought I would ask the question to all you mommies out there, others reading this are welcome to respond too, where do you get your strength? You know, when everything that could possibly go wrong does?

Here's an inspirational TRUE story (a clip only a few minutes long) of a father who has an incredible strength that seems beyond his own ability to help his son. When I watch it I can't help but tear up thinking about what an incredible parent this man is. Today, I hope to hear about you. Come back tomorrow, and I'll tell you about me, how I answer this question in light of an extremely challenging year that hit me following the birth of my son and adjusting to a newborn and a toddler: sicknesses, surgery, accidents, chaos, desperation, a lot of prayer, and a very big miracle.

If I weren't a follower already I would be now! Great post! Although I do hate you for making me cry! Can't wait to read tomorrow's post...Happy Easter!

Oh I forgot to answer your questions: Prayer is my biggest tool, my husband & mom are the second, and the Bible verse 1 Peter 5:8-11.

Tell me about it. Yesterday naps were non existent, meal time was a struggle, the Easter dress I put on hold was sold accidentally, our hot water heater sprung a leak, and on my way home from the mall I wheeled into the garage and hit the side. What a day! Thank goodness for my Faith, husband, and lil' sweet baby girl. They get me through most anything. Oh and I can't forget...humor. That'll make even the worst days a little easier to stomach! Happy Easter!

The video....I wept, really wept... somethings in life so deeply speak to the soul and speak of our Father's deep and complete love and that was one of them. For me it is HOPE....hope in the ONE who is ENOUGH.
