Okay so I TOTALLY missed Thursday, and here’s why…
I didn’t think I had anything worth posting.
Lol girl, I was wrong, and *here’s* why.
I got paid today. Many of you have been around long enough to know that the past 3 yrs have been a STRUH-GULL.
For whatever reason, we’re going through a season of tight budgets, hard conversations, and things not feeling like…mm even a little fun at all?…and in the midst of that season, God decided that 2 babies in 2 years was our journey.
These boys are such a blessing. 1 of them I fully believe saved my life. In a season of *DEEP* depression before Cade was born, he was my only reason to stay alive. The moment I held him, I was happy. Truly. Maybe not always in a good mood, but happy. He is my life saver. He is a gift from God and I’m forever grateful.
Baby B, my Braedy Boy. I was not pleased ab being pregnant with him. To be brutally honest, I still wasn’t excited when the doctor laid him on my chest, 2 weeks after my husband lost his job. EH HEH 😬. SERIOUSLY? But, honey, have you seen this boy’s smile? He is my sweet snuggle baby. He feels his emotions so strongly, and he brings light, fun, and silliness into this home. I didn’t know it til he was ab 5wks old, but he is a huge gift from God, and gosh I’m so grateful.
Having two little guys, Mark working nights, and me being at home, means having a monthly YL income that pays for 4 of our monthly bills, is amazing. It’s even more amazing when I consider how much I get back from Young Living, and how much I’m able to save on products from this company vs conventional store products. Cherry on top- I get peace of mind knowing that I’m being proactive with my family’s health instead of reactive, and I’m reducing the toxic/synthetic chemicals that my most precious babies come in contact with on a daily basis.
Are we big hippies? No. My kids have candy sometimes. I admittedly have a problematic relationship with Pepsi. But honey, the baby steps we took in 2014 have grown into a lifestyle that I have seen make visible differences in our lives, physically, emotionally, and financially. This company is a gift, and I’m grateful, sis.
Happy belated my dears!
