Who am I? Seriously…does anyone know?
Apparently I am a mom…confirmed by the four little people running around my home screaming, “Mommy! Mommy? Mommy!!”, a hundred times a day…and I LOVE IT!
Being a mom is all I dreamed about…of course my dreams were a lot calmer and less demanding, but reality is sometimes a learning curve we all need to take. I am also a SAHM, teacher at heart and a wife..I turn to Jesus to guide me and shape me and hold my children in His capable hands…since we all know I am not capable on my own.
Raised in the city, I know nothing about rural life, and yet I now live in a village of 250 people. You read that right, two hundred and fifty..that’s it…no one else but us and a vast array of fields. Of course we live only 25 min. from the nearest city so although there are times of feeling isolated…we truly do have the best of both worlds ( Walmart included 😀 ).
Daddy Brucks owns and operates our small construction business and has survived each day so far (and as long as I never operate any of the equipment, it should stay that way!). We are on the verge of understanding the life that has been given to us and although perfection has never been the goal, doing it God’s way is what we are aiming for. I consider us at the very beginning of this journey so Grace and Forgiveness are key in our day to day interactions. One day I hope to look back and see that we grew immensely and did the best that we could with the knowledge we had (which isn’t much :s). Until that time, I plan to Encourage whomever I can with the reality I live, Inspire those in need of a spark in their lives and Simply Laugh along with anyone who will join me. So together let’s love and be loved…
“Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”” Psalm 126:2 (NIV)
