i've always wondered and even asked "how did you know when you were in love" and i always got the same answer "i just knew" it seemed like such a load of crap to me... but now i get it.

i am extremely blessed

the past few weeks have been quite a roller coaster ride. as you know kimber showed up with a mass in her chest a few weeks ago. she had a dr's appt, lab work and xrays a few days after it showed up. her xrays were completely normal. a week after her bump showed up it doubled in size, we order an ultrasound that was completely non-diagnostic, that night the radiology facility wanted to do an mri. she had that done and again it was non-diagmostic, they though she needed a biopsy. well luckily i have some connections thru work and we were able to get another mri a couple days later, that radiologist said kimber had/has a separated rib and worst case scenario some possible infection. the day after her mri her lump started shrinking and has since disappeared. i can only it explain it by saying we prayed it away. i am so grateful that kimber's issue was a non-issue, thank you for your prayers...

please help

ok guys-
i'm writing to ask for your prayers, healing thoughts, positive energy (whatever you can offer) for kimber. she has been complaining of some rib/chest wall pain for about 5 weeks. we watched it and tried to figure out what was causing it but w/ no recollection of an injury just had her rest when it hurt. well this weekend she was complaining of pain again and told me she felt a bump, she has some sort of bump/mass/growth or something just to the left of her sternum. she has a dr appt tomorrow to have some xrays. i'm totally freaking out. if you all wouldn't mind taking a moment to help her out that would be much appreciated. i'll keep you posted.

mommy moments

this is actually my first post of the year... yeah i've been busy
so, i saw an advertisement for a contest for mothers day, you were supposed to send in an essay of your favorite mommy moment. it got me thinking and this is what i came up with :)

I am a single mom to 3 amazing little girls ages, 8, 5 and 3. This means I have many moments to choose from. It would be easy to say the first time i lied eyes on each of my children or the first time they said "I love you." It could be the time my oldest daughter, Kimber, told me to "take a long walk off a short pier," or the time i got a letter fom her that said "Dear Mom you are not respekting us. Love Kim," or the time she won an award at school for having great character, or every time she brings home a perfect spelling test with a huge smile on her face. My favorite moment could be the time my 5 year old doubled over with laughter because my "jiggly arm was hilarious" as i was blow drying her hair, or when she wore a skirt and carried a purse during the TBall opening ceremony parade rather then pants and her glove, or when she opted to lay in the grass and pick clovers in her 1st TBall game. Maybe my favorite moment was the time my 3 year old was mad at me because it was time to get out of the bath and she told me, "you aren't pretty and you aren't a princess," or all the times she tells me she loves me and I'm pretty and I'm a princess, or the time she asked her grama if she could "hang out and eat candy with her for 5 days." It is nearly impossible to pick one moment that is my favorite. i guess it would be best said that my favorite mommy moment is from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep and every single moment in between.

what's your favorite mommy moment?

that time of year

so it's that time of year when we all sit down and think about how bad we suck. at least that's what i do. i really am not one to make resolutions especially because everytime i do i make the same stupid ones that i don't keep. but here are my resolutions for 2010:

1. i would like to figure out who i am and who i want to be
2. i want to be a better mom and by better i mean, happier, more playful, less tense, calmer, more patient
3. i want to get healthier, in better shape, i don't have a goal weight or size but i would love to be able to look at myself in the mirror and not absolutely HATE what i see
4. which brings me to the last one i want to be healthier emotionally, i want to love myself for who i am and i don't want to feel guilty for loving myself or thinking good things about myself

i may come back and add to this later but what are your resolutions?
