It's Been a While...

It's been a LONG time since I have posted anything here.  Numerous reasons surround why, from being super busy to dealing with my grandmother's death and more. It has amazed me that even while I haven't been posting anything that my blog was still being visited and many people have requested that I return because they miss my posts. I am flattered.

I have an app on my phone called Timehop that I check and it always shows me my blogposts each day.  I have enjoyed going down memory lane and miss when I don't have anything to view.  I have forgotten so much that I blogged about and realize that it was a great family diary.

As I plan to start blogging again, there will not be a daily post.  That was just too much. I will plan to post once a week and then maybe a sporadic extra post when something fun happens.

I hope you will enjoy a peep into our crazy life.

Picture of Me and My 19 Week Belly

Okay, so here is the picture I promised.  It's not the greatest and I have no make-up on, but then again it was my belly you wanted to see, right? Enjoy :) I'll try to keep you posted with more pics.

Baby Update

Went to the doctor today to have my varicose veins checked (I always keep a close eye on them during pregnancy) and all is fine.  Need to use moist heat and elevate more for sore, tender veins, but all is well.

Got a chance to listen to the baby's heartbeat, always exciting and brings a smile to my face.  It's one of those things that NEVER grows old.

I'm at 18 weeks now.  My belly is growing and I'm feeling more pregnant each day.  I'll get a picture up soon  for those wanting to see me with a prego belly :)

Attitude Is Everything

Read a devotional yesterday from my Bible app on my phone and it was one of those "Aha moments" for me. Thought I'd share it with you.

It has been said  that attitude is everything.  You are not always in control of what happens to you, but you are always in control of how you respond.  Your attitude is the only thing you get to control 100% of the time.  The Bible uses the word mind to describe your attitude more often than it uses the actual word attitude.  However, what you think about leads to actions and those actions lead to habits. Your habits develop your character and your character develops your future.  It all starts with your attitude and your mind.  What does the Bible say about your attitude?

Jesus replied, "' You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' "

Wow, when you think about that verse and you change the word mind to attitude it completely changes what that verse means.  At least it did for me.  How about you?

Day After The Election

So it's the day after the election and there's a lot of talk out there.  Seems like a lot of hate too, from BOTH sides.

A friend of mine posted this today and thought it was very well said...I 'll leave you with it.  Feedback welcome.

......You haven't seen me talking about politics , you didn't see me talking about religion . Not because I don't love my country or believe in the good lord , But Simply because I respect mankind and value happiness . Why lose friendships over uncontrollable facts ? We are not all the same and view things very differently . Learn to respect one and another beyond our differences . Life is too short to waste a second. Manage to control emotions. Freedom of speech is our right but verbal abuse is a sign of ignorance . We are on earth for a very short period . Make sure that you are remembered for something great you have done . The time we waste in anger and hatred could be utilized to save lives or at least make them better . Find a bigger and better purpose . God believes in us all . Time to believe in ourselves and do better. Great attitudes precede great Opportunities ! Today gives another chance to improve , seize it ."

Exercise Your Rights

No matter what your party or what your belief, if you live in America, you have the freedom to choose who you want your next president to be.  So I encourage you all to go vote.  Your vote does count.
