All smiles

The other day I am driving into garage with boys in the backseat. As we approach to park we see Daddy working out…pause. We sit in car for a minute and stare.

Me: “Wow…Daddy is strong!”

Rockford: “Yeah…like me.” ūüôā

Looking ahead into the horizon

 
I can’t believe this little blog started January 31st and my kids and the Lord have really given me much material to write about. I am beyond blessed and honored to be a mother, a wife and a writer of my journey through motherhood. Thank you for coming on this journey with us.
