Something to think about..

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If only I could see the world, I will marry you.' One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend...He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will... you marry me?' The girl looked at him and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote her a note saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'
 This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Life is a Gift Today. Before you say an unkind word-Think of someone who can't speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food-Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife-Think about someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life-Think of someone who went to heaven too early. Before whining about the distance you drive-Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complaining about your job-Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down----put a smile on your face & be grateful for what you have!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

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…
