Pretty sure I already posted these gorgeous pictures but I had to share again, one because #Wyoming
. It's fucking gorgeous here. And also, it relates to my month so far.
There will always be another mountain for me to climb. Always. Maybe I like climbing the same particular mountain repeatedly but there's a saying that you never conquer a mountain. Sometimes it lets you make it to the top. Sometimes it is cruel and unforgiving and you turn back, but you ALWAYS learn from the climb.
I have learned so much in my crazy life that it still amazes me how much God has to teach me every day. I catch crap sometimes for trying to take care of everyone and taking on too much. But I learned, once again, that sometimes you gotta help people climb. No matter what.
I have climbed this mountain before, I know these stairs, the good places to take a breathe and a photo, and when to trudge on. I know that it's much easier for me than it is for others. I could get tired of helping people I love get up the same mountain, but I know they need to keep climbing up to live, no matter how many times they have fallen or quit.
God sent me to help. Do I have my own Mountains I am still climbing and new Mountains to try? Of course! But what good is that view from the top if you've left those you love down along the way?
This month so far has been challenge after challenge, curve balls and rock slides. Trees across the path. And some of the people that I love were struggling. Not more than me and my family necessarily, but they are ill equipped for the journey. I can be frustrated and disappointed by it, or I can take a detour on my route to get them up theirs because that's what God called me to do. Any inconvenience it causes me is only another lesson that God has for me. He knows I have a strong back and shoulders and a heart to carry others. He will care and provide for me. And I will bring His people back to Him, no matter the mountain in front of me.

Some people sure know how to make a lady feel loved 💫😉 💆🏽♀️
We are the lucky ones. ❤️ We are so fortunate to have such incredible resources, educators and a tribe that is with us through it all. We have a team of advocates that fight and work tirelessly, that love our boy fiercely and want nothing but the very best for him. Many children and families do not.
I used to think ADHD was just another buzz word; an “excuse” for hyperactive children or those who had their agenda and just didn’t want to listen. 😳 I was so very, heartbreakingly wrong.
School came easy to me. Aside from being a complete chatterbox 😬 (surprise, surprise) I didn’t have a lot of problems in school. So I naturally assumed my children would be the same.
God has a way of teaching, of showing, of shining new light. I believe we experience situations to learn, to grow and to ultimately: help others in their own journeys.
Ultimately, at the end of 1st grade we chose to start medication for our son. I’ll be honest, as a proponent of natural methodology I felt defeated, confused and saddened. I worried about side effects, but most of all, I feared scrutiny.
For us, this choice has changed so much and I see daily the connection of each thing we put into our bodies on our moods, behavior and attention. I see how using food choices, physical exercise and supplementation together as tools enhance the effectiveness of his medication, decrease anxiety, and improve mood and sleep. I am hopeful, with time and discipline his needs will change.
I’m passionate about helping others navigate this difficult road before, during and after diagnosis. I am always here to offer a shoulder, a laugh or information I have gathered along the way. I’m happy to share what we have tried, what’s worked, what hasn’t and our current regimen. But know EVERY journey as every individual is unique. I will never offer judgement or criticism as I know how that feels all too well.
Our journey is our own. And while I know there are much more difficult cards we could have been dealt, as a parent we want to do all we can to smooth the roads before our children, to take away the hard for them.
So very fortunate f
It would be SO easy for me to be miserable and salty today after another night with only 3.5 hours of sleep. Don't get me wrong, physically I'm exhausted...
But I choose Happy!! Part of my transformation has been a complete shift in mindset. I choose to start and end my day reflecting on what I am grateful for.
I am grateful for my family, my pain in the ass hubs that makes me crazy a lot of the time but I love him all the same, my beautiful kids, the roof over our heads, the clothes on our backs, the food in our bellies, and the ability to provide all of these things to my crazy wonderful family.
The BEST decision I ever made for my health was investing in this shake!
Sometimes we just need something quick to grab to eat. Unfortunately quick foods are usually not the healthiest and usually don't keep us full.
But that's not the case with this shake! Not only is is quick, it's healthy, it's full of nutrients, and it's delicious!
How about a 5 day trial???

5 a.m. wake up calls are brutal.
Feeling uncomfortable with you is brutal.
But you have the power to change 1 of those.

Way back in March when our family felt broken from our failed adoption. We heard a whisper that told us to head back to Michigan. We talked about it, prayed about it. We worried we were hearing Him wrong. There have been so many moments, Big & Small. Tonight Ty texts me this picture from the Tigers game he’s at with his dad and sister, having a great time. It just about makes me cry. These are the moments that prove we heard Him right. #God #godwinks #yolo #lovehard #timeispriceless #puremichigan #comericapark
🙃 it's not crazy its passionate #lovehard
or not at all ... not the best at being loved but I'll love the fuck out your ass 😚😚
This is all the advice my heart can muster today.♥️
Love relentlessly. Love hard. Love endlessly. Love fervently. Love when it’s hard. Bring joy to the lives of others. Make them feel something—connected to something. Our time on the planet is all too short and we never know when that time will be cut even shorter. Love like it’s the last thing you might do—because it may just be one day.♥️
At first you look and say "awe, look at the fountain ponytail on top of her head, how cute"...but then, she turns to face you.
And you see that she had a REALLY good day at daycare and took to eating dirt just before mommy picked her up.
I feel like this girl is gonna be a girlie tomboy. She likes the pretty dresses and hair, but she's all about playing in the mud and getting her hands (and face) dirty.
Make your heart the most beautiful thing about you
I Saw That You Were Perfect And So I Loved You. I Saw That You Were Not Perfect, And I Loved You Even More 💍 #poshpretzels
