After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

I'm glad to be bringing in this new year being healthy for the first time in exactly a year.  I saw the endocrinologist yesterday and all my levels are now normal.  I was so thrilled!  Now that I'm back to healthy, we can think about having another baby.  That's exciting, considering there were many days last year, especially last Fall, when I thought not only would I never have another baby, I was upset with myself at the lousy job I was doing with the 3 I already had.  I just had no energy, was always falling asleep, and couldn't deal with their needs well since I lacked the energy to be patient with 3 very small kids.  Thank God I live in a day where meds are available.  I LOVE my new meds and I LOVE being a good Mom again.  I'm taking advantage of the new energy I have and my thankfulness for being a capable Mom again and am schooling lightly and randomly this week while organizing the school room, curriculum, and schedule which I hope to have in full swing by the first of February if not before.  I can't express how thankful I am to be able to accomplish so much in one day, to love so much, and to not be constantly tired and angry.  Thank you Jesus!
