The Things Nobody Tells You…(musings from a first-time mom)

Nobody tells you that you really should grow an extra set of arms during pregnancy (along with everything else you’re growing). Cuz you’re really really gonna need more than just the two you have. They’d come in handy for driving swather and baler while essaying to feed and burp a floppy little baby at theContinue reading “The Things Nobody Tells You…(musings from a first-time mom)”

These Are the Days

Of milk and diapers. And more milk. And more diapers. Of sweet baby cuddles and growth spurts too soon. Of bright baby eyes, sweet-smelling hair, and cutesy outfits. These are the days of a newborn.

God said, “I need a woman strong enough to stay alone for weeks on end to keep the home fires burning, yet gentle enough to raise herContinue reading “So God Made A Trucker’s Wife”

Every Single Piece of the Puzzle Is Needed

Just wanted to capture a few of my thoughts from the last while.. It really struck home to me lately (with the world situation as it is) that every person’s job is so important!
