Some people say that home is where you make it, but I am also a firm believer that home will always be where you came from. Whether it is the home you grew up in for so many years, or the home church that you attended on Sunday mornings. Home is home, and there is no other comfort like it.

It does not matter if you are 5 miles away or 30 minutes down the road, it just feels good to go back. Even if you are being contradicting since it is the place that you wanted to run away and never look back from. It is a sense of well being, knowing that you are walking into a place where arms will be wide open with love for you.

The feeling that I get as a I drive into my hometown is one that cannot be described. One that ultimately cannot be understood by anyone until they leave their town, or their home for that matter. I know my Husband and I absolutely adore going to his parents each Sunday to continue their tradition of Sunday dinner after church, and they live next door. It is a sense of knowing what he is going in to, his comfort zone, his family, the people that love him no matter how many gross things he did as a child.

It may seem crazy at the fact that I feel so strongly about my home, when I am only 30 miles away. But when you are a Mom of two busy little ones, and caretaker most days of four others, with a house that never stays cleaned sometimes life just gets in the way. But should it? Absolutely not.

I want Charli to continue to remember where she came from as well. I want Bryar to know where Mommy spent her years growing, soul searching and becoming the Mom I am today. I want to make memories with my own childern there. It is a must that I make more time in going home for not only myself but for my family as well.


I am also hosting a pampered chef party for my friend Amanda. Some of you may remember me asking for prayers for Amanda's daughter Addison when she was recently diagnosed with 3 tumors on her brain. Addison has been through a lot of challenges since I started my first party with Amanda - which we soon abandoned but are now trying to help her get back into her routine of hosting online parties. If you or someone you know would like to help her in this business adventure please go to the following website:

Be sure to type in Paige Hargett for this party.

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.
