I've been awake the past few nights thinking about all the things I want to share with you.
I envision this blog to be a place of comfort, peace, and tranquility during your day.
I know most of us are mothers, wives, employees, employers, students, travelers, and writers.
With all the hats we wear daily, sometimes we can forget where we came from and how we got to this point in our lives.
Please do not forget.
I grew up in a loving home with both parents present. My Dad traveled frequently and tried his hardest to be a good role model. My Mom stayed at home with us, suffered through bouts of cancer, and taught us how to take care of ourselves.
My older sister and I are complete opposites. We've had our fair share of differences and have even taken time away from one another. I love her dearly and even though her opinion and ideas are different than mine, I am learning to accept her for who she is and let go of the expectations I have for her in how she sees me.
My extended families are far away from me in means of distance but I still connect with most of my cousins. I love watching them grow up, go to college, have families of their own, and begin new careers.
Without a doubt I feel completely blessed to be a part of my husband's family. They have welcomed the children and I with completely open arms and I feel more at home in my in-laws living room than anywhere else.
Lastly, I really do not know where I would be without the friendships I have made over the years. God has taken me to places I never thought imaginable and always provided women who supported me, loved our family, and made me feel right at home. I cherish each and every friendship.
So wherever you are today in your life journey I pray you can look back and find the support systems that have shared your burdens, lifted you in times of sorrow, and celebrate your triumphs.
