Catch Up Already

Wow what a crazy 2 weeks this has been!! I remember at some point I was able to sit down and post about our horrendous heart aches over the deaths that have wounded our families, the sad thing is the angel of death was not yet done.

My Great Aunt passed away  =0( As bad as my heart aches she put up a miraculous fight for her life, but in the end went peacefully surrounded by her hubs and children.

My dad lost one of his best friends, yet again this was a miraculous woman who fought til the end. My dad was blessed to have been by her side to say his final good bye.

I pray that the angel of death has already gone home, although we have a close family friends who has only been given hours to live =0(

I am numb to mourning now and not sure if this is healthy or not but how else do you get through 5 deaths in less than 2 weeks? Last Tuesday was the first time I had ever attended 2 funerals in one day, I pray I never have to do that again.

My poor son who has a heart of gold and is extremel…

Bible in 90 Days

Yes I am at it again only this time I am a mentor, YAY!!! 
Have you ever tried to read through the bible in a year, only to get through November and realize that it has been months since you last picked up your Bible?

I often found my self up for the reading challenge in January and then falling off the wagon when summer time hit. Picking my Bible up for Church and Bible studies only because it was on my mind at that time. By the time the holidays would hit I would realize that I had forgotten about my yearly challenge and become overwhelmed with the amount of catching up that it would take to actually finish in due time.

Then I found Amy over at Mom's Tool box, she was going to start blogging through the Bible in 90 days and I was so excited to jump aboard. I thought that there was now way I could fail at this; it's only 3 months compared to 12, how hard could that be!?

Needless to say it is a lot harder than it seems, it took my 3 tries to finally be considered a Bible in 90…

If it Comes in Threes...

.....Dear God let us be done!
At the end of last week my hubs and I lost 3 of our family members in 3 days. It was horrible!! 
I went to sleep Wednesday night I couldn't sleep very well, which is nothing new here lately. When I finally got to sleep I had one of those dreams again. This dream only comes ever so often and it is the same dream that every Firefighter spouse has at least once.
Ok it is not a dream it is a complete nightmare!! A scene clipped right out of Ladder 51, so if you have seen the movie you know exactly what scene I am talking about. If you haven't seen it watch, because I am not going into detail ;-) 
Yet this time I was awakened by my phone, it was nearly 6am and I think my heart stopped. I reached to grab my phone as fast as I could, before I could say hello I could hear my sister~in~law screaming that I wasn't answering my phone. I don't think I ever said hello, I just said "I am here" and then in a state of panic she was telling me she co…

Store Brand Health Care

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine. Being a penny pincher and tidy record keeper I can proudly say that I know where every penny goes.....well when it comes to medication, because they are tax deductible ;-) I saved more than hundreds last year by buying store brand medications specifically Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products However little did I know that with each purchase I made, I was not only saving my family money but I was also helping Walgreens Way to Well Fund™Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ will provide preventive health test as other health and wellness services to surrounding communities. Along with education and awareness. With an infant in our house our most popular Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product was of course Walgreens Brand Infant's Pain Reliever.  Teething was so much easier our 3rd time around, though I feel as if this time we were just better equipped. Though some may argue that name brands are better, yet ho…
