What defines me?

Cancer , A Dozen Kids , Life, Struggle

October 15, 2017 I slept in his arms for the very first time. Afraid to be naked hiding my flaws. A ball of self doubt is exactly what I was back then. When he fell asleep that first night I remember pressing myself against his back and en hailing his scent. The next day I …

Family <3

My entire life I have longed for family. I know clearly everyone is born with one right? I just never seemed to fit mine. Christmas events I wasn’t invited to. Excluded because I had “so many kids”. Spending time with family always felt like a chore. A task done because it was an obligation not …

I know many of you will find this unbelievable but I hate Meijer! It’s one of my very least favorite grocery stores. I have been a Wal-Mart shopper since the beginning of time. It is far better priced in my opinion and I just enjoy the layout more. I feel like Meijer feels far more …

Last night Marc took Allen, Clare, and myself out to the movies to see Deadpool 2. Deadpool 2 was a movie that Allen was really wanting to see. We don’t often get much time with Allen. He doesn’t get into as much that is relatable for us. He is very much the biggest home body …

I think the love I longed for the most growing up was that of a father. When my Dad ( Scott) disappeared I looked for a father in every man that came home with my Mom. A few now I can only remember faces, some still have names to the faces, and their are those …
