This is my first blog. I have always been pretty open and ready to share my experiences, opinions and discussions with people around me. I recently became totally engaged by some craft and homemaking blogs and so, here I the beginning of my own.

I come from a fractured background filled with much sadness, but I know that I am certainly not in the minority. God has always been in the back of my mind and my heart pulling me along, keeping me alive, no matter how much I resisted His love. Recently I gave up my fight against happiness and righteousness and gave my life completely to Christ. I have never felt so much joy, peace and completeness as I do with Him in my heart, everyday in every way!

I have two amazing children who have helped me survive also. If it weren't for them, I would have given up all hope long ago and let life beat me. They challenge me, humble me, love me and make me so proud...I am very thankful for them.

My husband and I have been married for 10 years, many of those filled with trial, but we are best friends and through everything are held firm by the foundation of our family.

I work full time and am currently tossing around and trying to figure out what we can do to allow me to quit working or go to part time so that I can spend more time on our home and children. I admire many of these home makers who put out their great ideas and share with the rest of us.

I kind of doubt that anyone will really see this, but, if by chance someone reads this, thank you for your time and blessings to you!
