“Bring the rain”

I am so in love with this song. Anytime I’m feeling down or I just need a little uplifting, I bust out my karaoke machine and sing it to myself and to my kids. My favorite part of this song is..
“I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I’ve gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You”

How blogging changed my life

Before I started blogging, I was not the best I could be. I knew in my heart that I was not doing as God wanted me to do, I was not being the best that God wanted me to bed. Specifically in my home. When we lived in our apartment. I cared very little about how it looked, I just did the basic’s and laundry. I didn’t do very much cleaning. My hubby was the cook, though he claimed he didn’t mind, I knew he did. My time was only for my children and myself. I was selfish when it came to my relationship with my husband. All I cared about was the children and want I wanted out of our relationship.
Before, I continue, I was 19 when we had our first child, and 21 when we had our second. Our boys are 18 months apart. I was young and naive, when we had our first child. As you could tell from the paragraph above. I wanted desperatly to be better, to be a better homemaker, a way better wife, and yes, a better mother. Because not cleaning, not cooking was just as bad as being a bad parent. I was letting my husband and my children down. When we bought our house in Septemeber, I knew I wasn’t going to let my house become a mess, I wanted to start cooking, cleaning, making my children happy, and making my husband happy.
I attempted this on my own. I was doing good, but I knew I could do better. My house was way more clean than our apartment ever was, I started cooking more often (just simple meals, but it was cooking), and I started making changes in our relationship. But, it just wasn’t enough. So, I did as I should have done to begin with. I prayed about it. I asked God to help me be as good as I could be for him, as good as I knew he wanted me to be.
Then it happened, I was researching on the internet and God showed me Heather’s blog. I’m not even sure how long I spent reading her blog, going through all the older posts. It was her blog that started to change my life. She is a Christian, SAHM, with three beautiful children and a loving husband. I absorbed everything from her blog about cleaning, organizing, raising children and having a good marriage. I look up to her in many ways, and even though I have never met her, even though we have not talked that much. She showed me how simple life could really be. 
So I began, I created a HMG. (Home Management Guide). That helped me out more than I ever though it would. I started organzing, cleaning, recycling, cooking and baking more (I have always loved to bake), and really caring about what my husband wants. I started feeling better about myself, about my life. I felt in my heart that I was becoming who God intended me to be. I was happy. I found several other blogs who inspire me everyday. 
I have never felt better about myself, My husband and I’s relationship is the best it has ever been, my house is clean and organized, and getting more organized, my children are happy. We are all happy now. So I just want to say a personal Thank You, to Heather. Thank you for being you, and thank you for all of your posts. I also thank God that he showed me her blog. I also want to say Thank You, to all of the blog’s I follow, Ya’ll are all just amazing!
