To you, women, on this special day....

Happy Mother's Day weekend! Whether or not you are a Mommy, each of you women play a part in some child's life. Whether by Aunt, Cousin, Sister, friend, teacher, youth worker,  or just by a random encounter with a child on any given moment. You have the opportunity to speak life to a child, to be an example and to show grace and compassion.

To all the single Mom's out there, I pray extra special grace on you this weekend, and thank you for all you do for your children, you have a very tough job and we commend you. You will not get that "break" most Mommy's ask for today, but know you are loved deeply.

 To those of you Mom's who are alone today while your husband is serving our country, thank you for the extra sacrifice you make for yourself and your family and I pray today you are filled with joy and know you are loved no matter if you wake up to flowers or not.

I am thinking of you, dear ladies, who ache to be a Mom and for one reason or another have not yet become one. Today will be hard on you, I know, and we do not forget about you today. I pray that your heart is filled today with love, that grace is extended to you and that no one would cause you any undo pain today.

To those of you who have lost their Mom's and they are no longer here, I pray today you would be comforted and be able to remember them in a way that sets your heart free. 

I am beyond blessed to have a wonderful Grandma, a wonderful Mother and a wonderful Mother-in-Law. These three women have been incredible examples to me of love, sacrifice, joy, grace, persistence, faithfulness and strength. I am thankful that on this day, only 9 months after my Mom's cancer diagnosis, I have her here with me.

I am so blessed to be a Mom of my three boys here, and my angel baby in heaven. Such a privilege to be called Mommy.

The day I became a Mommy.....
The day I became a Mommy again...

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
