Yielding My Fears

That Soldier of mine graduate flight school 4 months ago. Earned his wings and such. And then came blog silence. There was some legit busyness, but mostly it was out of fear. 4 more months of not blogging out of fear. I’m sure most bloggers have fears, fears they feel entitled to, whether they are rational or not. My fear…

Deeply Rooted Magazine

I’m not really sure I’ve ever plugged anything on this tiny space of mine on the interwebs. {other than jesus, books and caffeine} I’m not sure there has been anything worth plugging, at least nothing that has garnered so much excitement from me. But gee wiz am I excited about this one. Let me introduce you to Deeply Rooted Magazine.…

My Word for 2014

Tired of resolution posts yet? Whelp, here’s another! It’s actually less resolution, more focus driven. I don’t have issues with resolutions, I actually am not too terrible at keeping resolutions. {honestly that has more to do with setting low expectations} I actually set resolutions in 2011 and stuck to them pretty well, in 2012 and 2013 I didn’t even try…

this advent season

I heart Advent. A whole season devoted to a longing for Christ’s birth. It’s my favorite time of year. The entirety of Fall ranks as a close second, but Advent is still clearly the winner. {because there is clearly a competition between the seasons going on in my head} I loved Advent long before I had kids, but having 3…

the diabeetus and how it’s going

The Cadet celebrating his first 100 blood glucose reading with a couple of Polaroids! It’s been 2.5 months since The Cadet was hospitalized and diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Two months in and it seems old hat. Something about being asked to keep your child alive forces you get a good grasp on the care plan REAL quick. All of…

the day the cadet’s pancreas broke

2 weeks ago The Cadet {my darling superhero of 4} was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. {ugh} After a couple of weeks of showing some bizarre symptoms (like constant thirst, frequent urination, and rapid weight loss) he ended up in the ICU. I hope and pray that no one reading this ever has to see their child in the ICU.…

quiet spaces

My Soldier has been gone for 3 weeks. I talked to him for the 1st time today. I got to wish him a ‘Happy Veteran’s Day.’ It made my heart happy. I’ve spent 3 weeks not really talking, doing my best impersonation of a recluse. {a recluse with a caffeine addiction and short temper.} In all of my time hiding…

on mothering my 3rd

The Peanut will be 2 months old tomorrow. I feel like I should get his newborn photos up here on the ol bligity blog before he’s headed to kindergarten. Everyone warned me of the chaos and work that is adding a 3rd child. They warned of multiple siblings lashing out and struggling to adjust. They warned me of how detrimental…

in the not quite christmas spirit

That’s our Jesse Tree sitting sad and empty yesterday before it received it’s first ornament. Normally the season of Advent get’s me all excited but this year I’m a wee bit distracted. We have 2 HUGE things on the table for the first part of the year and it’s hard not to be completely focused on them. One of them…

preparing to prepare

Hello little blog! My family left this weekend and we hit the ground running trying to get the house back in order. {not to mention the vast effort we’ve put into getting the army brats back in order} Yesterday I finally felt like we were back in the swing of things and then I realized that Thanksgiving is next week!…
