Mother's Feet

I wanted to share some pictures of my feet. Why my feet? Because they hurt so bad at the end of the day. Actually, these shoes I am wearing are what save my feet at the end of the day. I desperately need new ones, but when money is a bit tight, I usually pass my wants or needs up and buy for others rather than myself. Don't we all.... :) These shoes have a few names....muffins, duck shoes, and I call them my brain shoes... Truly, when I have these on....I think much better. Soooo...when I seem lost, confused, and not "right", the kids remind me "Mom, where are your shoes?"

So I wrote this little something. Call it a poem or what have you. (ok...I'm not the poet). This isn't about the "shoes" but about my feet....actually Mother's Feet. As the years go by with no pedicure money or time to pamper.....some feet tend to look a bit rough. I actually have the rough feet. I try to keep the toe nails polished but that is it!



Mother's Feet

So worn

so calloused

so tired

so beat


all day they

chase babies

walk from room to room

walk from car to stores


they hold mother up during

household chores..

they never seem

to rest

to take a nap

to say

no more


but they

won't stop

since

there's always

work in store


Mother's Feet

help her

stand

run

walk

believe..


These stand

in the midst of

trials

joys

and many

victories...

"These stand in the midst of trials, joys, and many victories..." My fave line.

I have been wearing tennis shoes instead of my regular flip flops. My feet hurt less at the end of the day. I hate wearing tennis shoes. I think they are ugly, but comfort is winning out!

I also hate the tennis shoes with skirts look. So I make sure I change before I leave the house! Sometimes I'm in a hurry and forget though. How in embarrassing!

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
