I am a girl who is just trying to walk through life. And enjoy some of it too!
I am simple and complex as any girl should be.
I am a child of God and I am a mess! My life is crazy, full of love, laughter, sadness and tears. I am learning that all of that is NORMAL if such a state really exists.
I am married to a wonderful man, my Flyboy, appropriately named because he is a pilot and not so much because he is "pretty fly for a white guy" (even though he is). He stands beside me as I learn, grow, and make mistakes. He even stands calmly by when my temper flares up every now and again.
I am a mother to a beautiful, energetic and fiercely independent little girl. I am learning to be a mother in the toddler years which brings about a whole new set of adventures almost daily. She is fun. She makes me laugh. She makes me smile. After years of struggling with infertility, she is my answer to prayer.
I am also one who is lost. On June 30, 2011, I gave life (twice) and witnessed death (twice). My identical twin girls, Emmerson Claire and Vivienne Catherine blessed my life abundantly that day. After they went to live with their King, I was left with a gaping hole in my heart and questions. So many questions. And so many tears.
I am a child of God and I am a mess! I am learning, in the wake of all of this, how to trust, how to see, how to know the beauty of the One who knows how to bring joy and wonderment out of this life. This mess.
Will you join me for the clean up?
