A few things that annoy me.

...first of lets face it, I've said it before & I'll say it again. I'm not your average blogger. I post about life, my life, & my law enforcement aspects. I'm sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes angry. But this is life..my life to be exact. Love me, like me or hate me...I'll still love you =) Here goes!

We seem to always post about a things we love, like and adore. Well, not that I'm one to complain a lot (yeaaaa.. RIGHT!) but I ran across something earlier today that I would really like to put my two cents worth into. Most of you will probably not agree, because I am not your typical girl. I'm complicated all of the time (ask my new "prospect" as we've been calling him) selfish at times, and confused majority of the time. But one thing I do know all of the time, is I do not need a man to make my life complete, and no I'm not saying that you "do" or think you do by any means.

I see women all of the time, inside blog world and outside, that seem dependent on the livelihood and love of a male. Do you understand that you are strong if not stronger without a man? I never knew how strong and how much of a woman that I am until I became "along." The greatest moments and years of my life has been while single. Yes, I am even thankful that he left me, so that I could grow on my own. I would of never realized money situations, caring for my child, how hardworking and determined that I will have to be to make my dreams come true. Sometimes I'm just not sure that some women realize that the times that they are single they shouldn't be praying for someone, they should be praying for their own personal growing in life, health and spirits so that whenever "your person" does come along they will be ready. This I also know, I am ready. I understand the determination in life that it takes to love an be loved. I've been through a lot within relationships, but I will never sit here and say it is more than you have been through. But I do know one thing for sure, we are all very strong in our own ways and you are just fine without having a man to provide and love you right now. This is your time to get ready!
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteou
s right hand.

Dear Prospect, please do not think that was about you...because I promise it was not.

I heard on the news the other morning while I was driving little miss to the sitters that a toddler had passed away after drinking the chemicals (drain cleaner) that are used to manufacture methamphetamine! Yes, how very sad. This did happen in Kentucky, how it hasn't made more headlines than it has, I have no idea. The parents are in jail, but guess what there ages are 19 (Dad) and 14 (Mom). No joke! Some of you are probably laughing it up and saying "only in Kentucky" but this is ridiculous and sad. Why was this young family not checked out before. We have these problems in our own county, not exactly with the ages but drugs and families not being checked out (I'm not downing systems either). I have tears in my eyes thinking of the toddlers and infants that are being destroyed because of Meth. I'm so very tired of it. I pray for these children, because this something they will never be able to overcome unless they are helped at this age. Someone asked me the other day "Why the Lord put these precious babies through this" and then a response came "So we'll have jobs later on." That is not a joke by saying that, these kids will not go anywhere in life, and they will be our future drug dealers and crooks if they do not receive help soon. My brain is turning and trying to come up with a foundation or organization to help children that are effected by drugs in our community. This will be a stepping process though...and any ideas will be fabulous!

Now, it's time to be thankful which I have realized lately that these are the only things that get me through life at times.

*The way you care.
* For being able to grow with my child and provide for her as well as I have.
* The job that I have, oh yes, I complain on this everyday but in the long run it has brought me through the past year and half and paid the bills (major smiles).
*Family; ahh how much I love them. Yes, I complain on how they will not empty the trash whenever it's full, but I've caught myself doing this also so I'm sorry for being hypocritical.
* Church days that I rarely get to experience but they bless my soul.
*Friends (blog friends and real friends), I probably have more blogger friends than I do any others, but I'm still thankful for every one of you. They are all few and far to come by. It such a blessing to have you all.
*I am thankful for the White Family that started"Thankful Thursday," these are the wonderful families that give us hope, strength and smiles. We are praying for you White family! (click on the graphic to get read Johnathan's story & blog)
*I am thankful that you made the most memorable way ever of getting my phone number. It makes me laugh every time I think of it, and it is for sure a "story for the books." I can't tell you enough how thankful I am for you in my life (even if it halfway contradicts my above paragraph!)
*For not having my car stolen like I very much so thought it was when coming out of Opry Mills last night..I'm just a dumb blond some days I believe.
* and last but not least silly faces that make my life so beautiful & fun!

I think it takes a bit for a girl to be ok with herself. And Im sooo very glad that I am. I dont think you can be great with someone else until your great by yourself.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
