Cannot wait to start training others and helping them with their health and fitness goals💪
A weekend well spent! ✨✨✨
Had the opportunity to join and be in the company of my lifetime bestie @simply_sar_ Each time we link up, it always ends up being a high vibe kinda time! Grateful for friendships where their is an exchange of continued encouragement and when we both push each other to our highest and greatest potential!
as i drive back and forth each day...from my sweet retreat in the country with @oldmcdonaldswife and @old_micky_d to my cottage-in-process in town...i pass this little chapel and the field next to it.
it's peaceful, a stretch of road where i process my thoughts and i pray.
thankful for the green spaces, thankful for the friendship that was waiting for me in texas, thankful for limitless help, encouragement, creativity and great food, thankful for God's plan for this new chapter

Today is 150 days since my daughter and I were sent home to begin a "quarantine" being healthy and without giving us explanations. At that moment I had no idea what was going on, much less did I imagine everything that was going to happen. Today I feel enormously blessed because even though we’ve experienced moments of anxiety, sadness among others; we’re still healthy and we have everything. I cannot say that we’re the same as 150 days ago, there’s been a significant change in our interior and in our life. It is fabulous how God laughs at our plans and always has better ones, incredibly there is an unimaginable change in our lives. Things have happened that we didn’t even imagine and everything has been so fast that we’re still assimilating it. When one holds on to Him nothing can go wrong, that we’ve proven it over and over again. #blessed#love#thankful#lifeisbeautiful#godisincontrol#happy

Well here's the completed Dancing Clock. I debated several days if I had sanded enough haha. I was so glad I had picked up the bargain box of sandpaper from @klingsporusa because it made it so much easier to sand! I had several suggestions on the finish and they were all very good. I decided to go with a traditional cherry stain and a satin laquer finish. I have an acrylic face covering to install and then it will be complete.
1. the absence of movement or sound.
My mind feels strikingly still, but I still hear the gentle whoosh of the leg clot machine and the vibrating hum of the hospital room a/c combined with the mixture of air lightly circulating and brushing against my “Get Well Soon” balloons ... all reminding me of a joyous, even more simple time — a time when the balloons said “Congratulations ” — and smiles and laughter filled that room. Those moments came in 2009 with Bella, in 2013 with Brystal, in 2016 with Barrett, and only 17 months ago, when I brought our rainbow 🌈 Brielle into this world. You see, shortly after Bear 🐻 was diagnosed 🎗 in 2017, I suffered through more devastation with a chemical pregnancy — my first loss. But Jesus. 🙌🏻 He pulled me out of the storm.
Today, however, is different :: it’s a different grief :: and sadness sweeps over me in waves as I recall nurses proceeding with caution as they entered my room. In fact, a sign hung on my door — a blue butterfly 🦋 requesting to “Please see RN before entering.” It’s grief in vulnerability. It’s laying in that hospital bed in a delivery gown, being hooked up to an IV, feeling full breasts and drips of milk, suffering through the soreness and clutching that newly pudgy belly ... while managing the bleeding, thick pad, postpartum panties — and aching for the precious dream now broken. 💔
Yesterday, as I left the hospital, I left empty. I’m not bringing our 4th baby girl (my 2nd loss) home — but I’m coming home — and I’m diving deep into the presence of Jesus in the midst of these pounding waves. He will pull me out once again as I rest in His sovereignty.
Motherhood. It’s exhausting, inspiring, soul-soothing, and purpose-giving. It makes you question everything, while also feeling like you know it all. It continues to be the most brilliant teacher — exposing the paradox contained within the experience of my grief: that of which both suffering and joy can coexist.

Reminder for the ladies:
Any guy can spoil you with materialistic things, but the right man can do way more than just that...
He can spoil you with understanding, listening, honesty, loyalty, affection, communication, and he can spoil you with happiness. ❤️
I am not perfect, still working through many things- but thank you for always standing by me, my love. Through the ups and the downs, I will always be blessed and grateful to have a man like you by my side. #NomadicFitCouple
