A time for everything.

Today was kind of surreal. I got a call this morning saying that Pops is ready to go home and he wanted to have his family there with him to say good bye.
My prayer all day yesterday was that God would reveal to me what to do.
I wanted so bad to go and see him to tell him I love him one last time and on the other hand, I didn't want to see him in the condition he is in. Today, it was very heavy on my heart to go and be there for him. I really was not ready for what I saw but God met us there in the hospital room and covered it with a peace only He could give. When I walked in his room he was saying,
" Oh Lord, take me home, I am ready to go home...I want to come home."
My heart was so glad at that moment. All my selfishness went out the door and at that moment my soul was at peace with this situation. The whole family was there with him, talking about all the great memories we have with him and praying that God would come and take him home SOON! He is so ready to go, and we are finally ready to let him run into the arms of Jesus. The very one who gave him life is about to take him home and we are so excited for him.
Don't get me wrong, it has been the hardest day in my entire life with many tears and heartache but this is the Lord's plan and His timing is perfect.
Nothing happens outside of His timing.
Pops is still here with us and we are praying that he gets to run into the
arms of his Savior soon.
He will have both of his legs again, no more pain, infections, worries....
he is a lucky man.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity
under heaven: a time to born and a time to die...." - Ecclesiastes 3:1

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
