God Gave Me You

I am not a big fan of mushy love songs. As soon as they start, I change the channel. This one was different.
                                           Blake Shelton – God Gave Me You
I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you

[Chorus]
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
The first time I heard this song it ALMOST  made me cry.   Okay, so maybe I did shed a tear or two.

I couldn’t help but think of my failed marriage from many moons ago (which I NEVER really think  or talk about anymore). Mainly because I know that this is the type of relationship this song is talking about, I got a little jelous, then  pissed but then I couldn’t stop thinkng of my sons. This is when I got really emotional.
GREG & CHRIS 14 years ago

This song perfecly describes how I feel about the two loves of my my life, Greg and Chris. I have always been so thankful for them, they bring great big smiles to my face and warmth to me heart. That’s pretty special, especially since they are teenagers now and they still have this effect on me. I don’t know how I would have made it through everything without them. The joy they bring me is indescribable. I have said it before and I will say it once more, they made me a better person.
My heart breaks for those who turn there backs on the one placed in their lifes to help them through this journey here on earth.

Birds of a feather flock togather: Helping teens pick good friends

As a kid I always remember my parent’s saying “Birds of a feather flock together” or “If your friends jump off a cliff are you going to do it?” I dreaded these conversations.  I would never jump off a cliff unless there was water underneath it, I am not an idiot! I am not sure what they said after these opening clichés because I think I just tuned them out. I’m sure it was a bunch of great stuff, my parents are pretty awesome but again, I didn’t hear it. I do however remember them talking to me about the importance of picking “good” friends, which is what I think they were trying to get at with those terrible clichés. Many adults in my parent’s generation emphasized the importance of hanging out with kids from “good families”. Back then a good family was a Mom, a Dad and kids from those same two parents that went to church. 

As an older child and teeneager I can remember adults around me whispering “they got divorced” or “those aren’t really his kids that’s why they are so bad”.  I don&…

It's a "Do the best you can with what you got!" kind of Christmas!!

I have been a very bad girl this year and have not posted in weeks!!! I will post Christmas day for my big "Journey to Milfhood's weight-loss challenge" reveal with a before and after photo. You can find out on Tuesday if I meet my goal or not.

Life continues to be cRaZy but good. I am blessed to be in one piece, to have my gorgeous sons and to have a job that is sometimes hectic but always fun and rewarding.

Chris asked for a BIG ticket item this year....a LAPTOP. At first he wanted an ipad but then he decided a good laptop, with windows 8 of course, would be better so he could use it for homework as well as gaming. This would put a pretty big dent in my Christmas budget!!I do not charge things for Christmas. I figure if I cannot pay cash for it, I cannot afford it. I started this at about 25 because I did not want to be $40,000 in debt like many in the baby boomer generation. It works well for me because it also helps me prioritize and budget well for the holidays.
