Round Two

Here I go in my second attempt to stick with a blog. After much encouragement from friends and family, I have decided to give it another shot. I honestly can't think of anyone interested in the daily goings-on in our little life, but my goal through this is to get those day-to-day moments and memories down in writing so that years from now, they will not be forgotten. Maybe it's because we recently added a second child to our family and I'm suddenly remembering all the things I had forgotten from when my first was a baby...things that I thought "oh, I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it." Wrong.

The Lord teaches me a lot through my boys and if writing about those moments make me a better child of God, wife, Mama, human - then I'm all for it. My God knows I need all the help I can get!

Quick Explanation - My oldest Harrison actually inspired the name "Mud in Heaven." Anyone who knows this sweet-souled boy of mine knows he adores dirt in all forms - A true boy. And as most nearly 4-year-olds, he is full of questions. So we're outside just the other and he's playing in the mud (his MOST favorite form of dirt) and he so innocently asks me, "Mama, you think there's mud in heaven?" I said, "Well, yeah, probably so." He says, "Good. Maybe Jesus will take me for a ride in the mud in Him's big truck." I say (laughingly), "I'm sure He will if you ask him." His reply, "Yep. He will." So I should be. That's one of those little moments that I would be bound to forget had I not taken the seconds to write it down.

My goal is to post regular updates, stories, lessons, etc about my family and the things God's teaching me along the way. Wish me luck!


  1. I love that story. I am so thankful that you have decided to do this blog. You are gifted in your writing skills. As I read, I feel as though I am right there in the moment. You are such a blessing in my life. I thank God for the beautiful, child of God, Mom, wife and DAUGHTER you are. I love you!

  2. So excited to see you blogging! Your comments on FB about Harrison and the things he says reminds me so much of Carter. You'll see that this blog brings you more joy then you ever expected. You'll sit down one day when you have some quiet time and go back to your first post and read to the present and God will use your blog to show you and remind you just how truly blessed you are. I pray that you keep up with it, for yourself, for your kids, and for us other mommies that need to see we aren't the only ones dealing with little dirt dobbers! :) Happy Blogging!
