It's The Little Moments

     Being married has brought about many blissful moments as well as those moments that we both look at each other with frustrations.  There are those moments where things run smoothly and there are those times when we need to stop in the moment to figure out why we can't seem to communicate the way that we are really trying to.  With all those varying moments, some of the moments that I cherish the most are the moments that seem so insignificant, the day-to-day moments.  Its those moments like the times that my stomach gets butterflies when he turns the front door knob when coming home from work.  Its those moments when we are walking around in a store playing around like some big kids.  Its those moments when we are sitting in the same room doing two separate things, while still enjoying being around each other.  It's those moments when we are sitting around watching a movie (or shall I say that he is watching the movie and I am sleeping).  It's those moments when we go walking in the evening for exercise while talking about nothing and everything at the same time.  It's those moments when Mr. Awesome fills up my gas tank, puts a chocolate on my pillow, plans a great date night, or completes a task on his 'Honey  Do' list.  It's also those moments when neither of us can see past those little things that aggravate us about the other person.  However, through all of the good and not so good moments, the big and the small moments, I couldn't think of a more awesome person to spend those moments with.  My Mr. Awesome.

Picture Perfect

I was reflecting the other day about the many blessings in my life and how this picture alone says much about some of these blessings.  This picture reveals some of the abundance that God has poured into my life.  With all of the beautiful green grass and tress in the background, my loving husband that has always supported me standing beside me, and our bundle of joy that we are in love with, many may assume that things are perfect.  Although this picture gleams of that notion, there are some things that are not shown in this photo.  Yes the grass and trees are a reflection of the beautiful Spring time, yet someone had to mow and care for it to make this picture colorful.  Yes, my wonderful husband is standing beside me supporting me on this joyous occasion, but there have been times that he had to exercise extra patience and love to deal with some of my moodiness. There have been times when my own smile was not there for him because he was testing my patience.  Yes, I am rockin…

Top 10 Things That I Learned From Deployment

      As is with military life, deployments are a part of the routine.  However, the Lord blessed Mr. Awesome and I to enjoy wedded bliss for three years before he had to go off and sail the horizons for 7 months.  As many spouses do, I had to put on my "big girl drawers" and get ready for the journey ahead.  As expected, the deployment stretched me in ways that I did not anticipate, but during the time that hubby was gone, I learned and grew a lot as a person.  Here are the top ten ways that I grew in the time that my hubby was gone.

1) My reliance on the Lord increased as it already does daily. 2) The great love that I had for my hubby grew exponentially. 3) I had to take out and dust off Ms. Independent a few times to get some business done that hubby would normally have been here to take care of.  However, it was not the same. 4) There are some really caring people in this world who understand the plight of military family sacrifices. 5)  The lawnmower and I do not (an…


Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogantor rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

     On a recent trip to the city of brotherly love (Philadelphia) to visit with family that I haven't seen in a long time and to get some authentic Cheesesteak sandwiches, we stopped to take a pic with this all too famous sign.  As we braved the type of cold that Philly is also famous for (at least in my book), we were able to get some other nice tourists to capture this moment for us.  Although the original designer of this sculpture, Robert Indiana, did such an artistic notion by making this display, we have to give all honor and credit to HE who constructed the concept of LOVE in the first place.
