Life Lately

life-lately

It would be an understatement to say that life has been anything but interesting lately. As you can see, I haven’t posted much in the past week or so. Well, we’ve had a lot of events occur back-to-back that kind of prevented me from being able to sit down and adequately write a post. So, I thought it would be a good idea to Continue reading

Things I Wish I Knew Before Becoming A Mommy

before becoming a mother

I remember falling to my knees and breaking into sobs.

“I don’t know how to be a mommy,” I squeaked out.

I could tell my husband was trying so hard to contain his excitement because he didn’t want to upset me even more. He grabbed my face in his hands and said, “Baby, you are going to be a great mommy.”

28 Things I’ve Learned As A Military Wife

Alexis34

Today is my birthday! It’s my Golden Birthday, to be exact! Yes, that means I am now 28 on the 28th. So crazy! I feel like the closer I get to 30, the less old it feels. When I was younger, 30 seemed so old, but now I wonder why I always thought that. Maybe I am old and am just in denial, or maybe 30 is the new 20. Who knows?

Anyway, to celebrate turning 28, I thought I would keep the idea of doing a list on my birthday, for the number of years that I am. I originally was going to do, “28 Things I’ve Learned Throughout My Life,” but then I thought it would be better to talk about things that I’ve learned as a military wife. I’ve learned quite a lot, some humorous and some serious, but all have helped make me a better support for my husband and his job (I hope)!

A Mother’s Prayer

prayer

Dear God,

When I am tired, please give me the energy I need to get through the day.

When I’ve lost all patience, help me learn to walk away.

When there is too much to do, help me prioritize.

When the house is a mess, help me to be okay with that once in a while.

When I am frustrated, help me to always respond in love.

When I don’t want to change one more poopy  diaper, remind me that it doesn’t last forever.

When the baby won’t stop screaming, please give my heart peace.

When I don’t know what to do, remind me to always pray.

When my child is upset with me, help me cherish the snuggles afterwards.

When I feel alone, remind me You’re always there.

When there is so much noise, help me choose joy among the clamor.

When my children ask hard questions, help me respond with wisdom.

When they disappoint me, help me choose grace.

When I’m holding their little hands, remind me that You are always guiding me.

When I want to do something wrong, let me remember the little eyes that are watching me.

In everything I do, let my children see You through me.

Above all, God, help me cherish every little moment, because I will never get them back.

*Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms I know! You are doing an amazing job.*
