5 Minute Friday

From The Gypsy Mama:  For five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Write and see what comes out. There’s no right or wrong.

When I think of a path, I think of it being well worn, easily followed and clear. I think these things because the path is only there because people have walked it before. Many miles. Many feet. Many times. You see the signs to "Stay on the Path" and you know that's the way to go. Great, follow that and you're safe.

I think that's where I've always been. Someone who's followed the path walked before them, trusting in those before me to lead me to where I needed to go.

I am feeling that it's time I make the path. Someone has to start walking that way in order for their to be a path in the first place, I think I want that person to be me. Even if it looks a little crazy, or wrong. People who make paths are out for an adventure, to go where someone didn't go before them. Trailblazers. I want to be that. Praying all the while that while I cannot see the steps before me, HE does and HE can guide me. And just maybe, some others will find this path as well. Because in the end it isn't about my path at's about others.


  1. Making your own path can be scary! I have sound that it is 100% worth it though! I am dropping my from Gypsy Mama & your newest follower!

  2. Yes!

    Trailblazers are courageous, adventurous visionaries! May you be blessed as you lead the way!

  3. We need trailblazers! I pray that you continue to lead the way in courage and confidence. I personally struggle with that and have begun to write about it on my blog...scares me this path I am on, but I know He is in control. And, yes, it is for others not that line and I love this post! Thank you for sharing! Your blog title and pics are adorable.

  4. We definitely need new trailblazers. Love your honesty! I know I'm weed whacking my own crazy trail and I get some weird looks along the way but keep pushing. As long as God is the leader, we're safe :) On a side note, from one mom of 3 boys to another, your boys are absolutely adorable :)

  5. YES! Love it. It's hard to follow the unmarked path. Great post! We need more people to stand up for what they believe in. Kiddos are super cute too :)
    Feel free to follow back. Would love to have you!

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
