Painful Owies, A Lesson In Forgiveness, & A Serious Lack of Sleep

Picture this, you're peacefully driving along when your hubby calls you, gingerly you pick up the phone, "Hi baby! " Instantly it's apparent something is wrong, there's fear in his voice, hysterical screaming in the background & he's saying "you need to get home, you need to get home right now"
Well, this is how my evening began. The Hubby called me & he was obviously afraid, now let me just pause here & say I've learned to take my sweet hubby's reactions with a grain of salt at times. Not because his feelings don't matter but sometimes his reactions...hmmmm...shall we say can be a wee bit scary. For example a year ago I had a sudden seizure & The Hubby ran to me yelling "she smashed her face"
I didn't smash my face but that's what he thought so that's what he said & after many years with him I've gotten used to waiting the whopping one minute it takes for him to rethink his statement. But this time he wasn't wavering, he was scared & you could here it in his voice. He was also very calm which made me very nervous. He told me that my 4 year old pushed my 8 year old, I thought "OK, is it that bad? Did she break a bone" Turns out Monkey pushed her off the toilet that she was standing on right into the bathtub. My sweet Bear landed on her back banging her head as the shower curtain & rod fell atop her stomach.
I told him to get her ready & that I would take her to the ER, I just had altogether a bad feeling. Now, I'm not the Mama in the hospital every other week, I used to be but after all the flu's, twisted ankles, & mystery fevers 4 kids bring I tend more often than not to be Dr & Nurse.
However, with the fact that she was dizzy, nauseous, & "tired" this had head trauma written all over it.
Sooooo, I got home & brought my sweetness to the ER where they triage her quickly & the doc ordered a CT. After a short wait we met with doctor who checked her out both physically & neurologically, he said getting a CT wasn't the best option for my baby (radiation exposure) & that she had a concussion. What she needed was pain meds & plenty of rest.
I was glad Bear didn't need to go thru any tests & that we could go home.
Now, through all this mess...the fear, stress, & worry I was amazed at my daughters reaction to the ordeal.

She wasn't mad at her sister!! Ya know, the one who knocked her for a loop??!?!!??!!
Instead, she asked that we call her from the waiting room where she proceeded to tell her "I just wanna tell you I love you & I forgive you, even if you don't say you're sorry, I know you didn't mean to cause me all this trouble"
I was floored!
How many times do I pout & hold a grudge against my husband just for lookin at me funny? Or worse yet how many times do I harbor resentment towards my children when they aren't behaving as they should??
My 8 year old taught me a huge lesson in forgiveness, she chose in her heart to forgive her sister & show her grace when she didn't deserve it, it amazes me because on the way to the ER she told me "Mommy, ya know that scripture you told us about yesterday? The one about God giving....ummmm, ummmm..oh yeah! Grace??I was just thinking about that"
She was referencing James 4:6 “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
I feel privileged to watch God's grace through my beautiful & humble little girl.
I'm very proud of my sweet princess, she had a terrible experience & came out of it with a few bumps & bruises but her heart was unscathed.
This Mama has had a very long night & the bed is calling out to me, it's only a few hours til the Wee Munchkin makes her presence known, so I leave you with this...
Today, when someone cuts you off, when you get that snide remark from the check out girl, when that one family member continues to treat you unfairly...remember the reaction of a little girl who had every right to get angry. She had every "right" to give the cold shoulder & hold a grudge, but instead she chose to be a blessing, not a curse..instead she chose to "be Christ" to another.

30 Day Photo Challenge Day 4

Day 04 - A picture of your night.

I really like sleep....but it doesn't like me. My bed is always full of my girlies, they rarely seem tired. Why is that? The hubby & I joke that they tag team us, as soon as The Munchkin is sleepin, this one desperately needs a sip of water. Then that one is scared of who knows what, by the time the older two are back in bed the baby is up again...
We're both beginning to wonder if this is some kind of ploy to make sure we're dopey the next day & let them watch too much television & eat gobs of sugar...hmmmmm.
Well, this is a picture of my night & the season of my life, and I love it!!

30 Day Photo Challenge Day 3

Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

I had to think about this a little. I have shows that I watch now & that I like too. But I couldn't think of one that was a "must" an absolute favorite. So I asked myself if I could only watch one television show for the rest of my life what would it be??
Little House On The Prairie popped in my head faster that you can say "Pa plays a mean fiddle"
I love this show so much, it reminds me of being a little girl & I really enjoy watching it with my little girls.

30 Day Photo Challenge Day 2

Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been close
with for the longest.

This is my super awesome sister, Lisa.
AKA...Sa, Manty Sa, & Masa.
She is amazing, I love her so much & I'm so thankful God would give her to little ole me. I look up to her because she is worthy of looking up to.
Lisa & I weren't always "close" when we were kids I think we could of just about killed each other! But even then I knew I could count on her just like I know she's here for me now. In what was by far the most difficult season of my life my sister was more than "close" to me, she took care of me & loved me through my pain.
So, I guess that's a little more than you asked for but I can't help but gush about my sis.
She's beautiful.

Meet Me On Monday.....

Welcome to the 39th edition of
"Meet Me On Monday!"

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so Java thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Here's this week questions...

1. What jewelry do you wear 24/7?

I wear my wedding rings 24/7. If I take 'em off to put lotion on the kids I usually freak out shortly after because I'm afraid I'll lose them. I got mad at The Hubby & took 'em off to be a jerk & not too long after I felt EXTREMELY guilty & very vulnerable without them on. I feel almost like they protect me from unwanted advances as well as they honor my Hubby & God. I'll never take them off again...unless of course to lube up the kiddos.

2. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?

I suppose I twirl...I just kinda eat & don't pay much attention. I definitely DO NOT cut, that's just kinda odd to me =)
But do you know there's actually a "Spaghetti Twirling Fork"???
Now, that's odd. Seriously folks you can actually purchase a battery operated fork that twirls s'ghetti for ya!! Jeesh...

3. How many siblings do you have?

I have my super dee duper sis Lisa, she's as sweet as pie & tough as nails.
She is my best friend (except for The Hubby) & one of the coolest people I know.

Then there's my big brother Frank. He is by far one of the smartest guys on the planet, seriously...I'm not exaggerating. Sometimes he talks & I'm thinkin' "is he speaking English?? Cuz he just went off in some other realm" Really tho, I look up to him a bunch.

Lastly there's Monica, my step-sis. She came with my Step Papa, I've known her forever & love her a ton.

4. Were you named after anyone? Nope...I'm an original.

5. Coke or Pepsi?

Really??? How can this still be a debate? Coke rocks...Pepsi's gross. Sorry to all my Pepsi lovin' friends.

OK, my palms are sweating as I type this because I'm just so upset. There is a relatively new website called Spokeo...have you heard of it???
Well, this website boasts itself as not being your Grandma's White Pages & WHOA!...it's definitely not!
I stumbled across it through another website only to find Spokeo knew all about me! I entered my name & after a few pages of refining info there I was!! My address, email, & my old land line phone number! It didn't stop there, they had the current value of the house listed! What's up with that??? It even had my husband listed with a nice little hyper link so you can jump over & nose around in his business!
What's so upsetting about this particular website is it doesn't stop there, I clicked on the option to get more info & for a nice little fee you could know all you wanted about me...social networks, my interests, supposedly even my credit scores!!
Supposedly, Spokeo gathers info from both online & offline sources & puts 'em all at anyones fingertips.
What was the most upsetting was that I searched for my 16 year old daughter & BLAM! There was my baby...
Fortunately it was very easy to remove myself & my family from their list, if you'd like to be removed just click here & follow the easy steps.
Sorry for all the exclamation points but I'm really upset that we as parents go through so much to protect the privacy of our children as well as ourselves & then some company would actually take the liberty of putting all my info out there...

Happy "Golden" Birthday!!!

Today is a wonderful day...my sweet little girl is celebrating her "Golden Birthday"
My Princess is 8 years old!! I can't believe how blessed we are with this wonderful girl, I remember when she came into this world..ooOhhhhH!
She was crying so loud you could hear her down the halls, but as soon as she was in Mama's arms she was fine. That's a little how the past 8 years have been, she can get all worked up at times but she just loves to cuddle (with Mama) & when she's in my arms she's content.
I'm so proud of this little lady, she is only 8 years old today but you would think she was older if you had to guess, not because she looks it...oh no...she's still my lil peanut =)
But, because she is so responsible & helpful, she's ALWAYS so willing to help, my Princess helps me do dishes, laundry, cook, clean, & take care of her sisters. She really is a wonderful Godly woman in the making.
I love to call her my "gentle flower" because she has such a sweet spirit, she is so empathetic & sensitive to the needs of others. I always tell her we'll take care of her heart like a little "gentle flower" & she gets the sweetest most innocent smile.
Oh! I need to mention how much she loves God. It is by far the most amazing thing about her, she has such a sweet abandon for Him, I can just see God smiling as she worships Him. She has a real desire to know Him more & it amazes me every day.

My Sweet Beautiful Little Girl...I love you more than you can imagine. You are such a wonderful little person & I believe with all my heart you're going to do amazing & awesome things in your life. I know you love God & sweet girl...keep on loving Him because He loves you sooooo much He sent His son to die for you. You mean that much to Him Mamita. I want you to always remember that you're Mama loves you & likes you too, I think you're a beautiful example to your sisters & a great "encourager" You fill my heart with joy & I can never get enough huggies & kissies from you. Beautiful Princess, don't ever change because you are perfect just the way you are.
Happy "Golden" Birthday Sweetness.....

Thankfully, they're both remarried & happy.

Review: Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare To Ask God For The Impossible

"This book is not a Snuggie. The words on these pages will not go down like Ambien. I’m not writing to calm or coddle you. With God’s help, I intend to incite a riot in your mind. Trip your breakers and turn out the lights in your favorite hiding places of insecurity and fear. Then flip the switch back on so that God’s truth can illuminate the divine destiny that may have been lying dormant inside you for years. In short, I’m out to activate your audacious faith. To inspire you to ask God for the impossible. And in the process, to reconnect you with your God-sized purpose and potential." —STEVEN FURTICK, from Sun Stand Still

When I first read these words I felt such excitement, I loved the idea of being challenged & stretched to my limits. However, I hit some snags right from the get go.
The first being I'm not so much of a youngin' anymore. Now I'm not saying I'm old or that Mr. Furtick is immature but I had a very hard time relating to this young man. There seemed to be a generation gap between myself & good ole Steve. Some of his ideas I found condescendingly redundant however I also found his "audacious faith" refreshing. The eyes of someone who are looking to God without doubt are wonderful to look through.
But, for myself personally I just had a difficult time getting from page to page, if I hear the word audacious one more time I'll scream. I honestly believe it's quite possible that it was used on almost every page!! I also didn't care for (what felt to me like) the dramatic affect. It felt at times I was in the room with Mr. Furtick & he was setting up this amazing story, now that can be a wonderful thing but when it's laced with dry humor & pauses for you to think, I just felt like I was in a room full of teenagers sipping coffee telling me how intelligent they were.
That being said, I don't want to say Mr. Furtick did a terrible job, I want to be clear that this wasn't my "type" of read. I believe Sun Stand Still is quite challenging & that if you aren't bothered by the points I've made you should read it. I believe it can challenge those who've become stagnant & encourage those that are pressing forward.
One things for sure, this isn't the last you'll hear from Steve Furtick.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Not Today

If you're looking for an encouraging word it's not coming from me, not today. I'm gonna whine, complain, & throw all sorts of fits. I have bad words stuck in my mind but don't worry, I won't let them come out.
See, I'm feeling very much trapped & down in the dumps lately. Oh! Whoops! I'm not spose to say that out loud am I??? I'm supposed to be all chipper & jolly here all the time right?? How else can I be a testimony to others if I come here & vent full steam??
Well, screw that...sorry if that was too close to bad words. Really not wanting to offend, but that is honestly how I feel. I'm really fried & on edge BIG TIME & need to let it out before I go nutty....again. See, I went waaaaayyyy off the deep end yesterday..screaming & literally stomping my feet.


Well, I'm tired for one. The wee munchkin (piggie??) still isn't sleeping through the night. Truth is she most definitely should be & normally by this point all my kids are sleeping like sweet little angels for a good 8-10 hours...buuuuttttt not the munchkin. She wakes up every night once or twice & then is up by 5 AM. Normally, I'd let her "cry it out" I know, I know, I'm evil....whatever.
But, we live in an apartment building now & the neighbors shouldn't have to hear her crying nights on end.
So, no sleep...or at least very little sleep for 13 months straight...
I'm tired.
That alone is a lot of reason behind my perpetual crabbiness as of late but hey why don't we throw in the being locked up in my little grey apartment. Now, I know when I first moved in here I was all "woohoo!! I'm all happy & dancin' weeeeee!!!"
Now, I look more like a kid who's just been told they're candy is all gone & will never return.
Ya know the super droopy sad face look. Well, I know the weather is a HUGE factor & I can not wait for the first blooms to appear & the sun to come out of hiding. I'm in such anticipation of taking my babies & running in the grass, well...they'll run & I'll sit a lot & look at them. But hey!!! I'll be outside which is what I'm dying for. Before, when we rented the house getting out was a lot easier because we had a large backyard so the kids could run like lunatics for a half hour & give me some breathing space.
Now, they run like lunatics right over me!! I'm sure there's all sorts of "teachable moments" here & that I need to get things in order but right now I just don't care. The monkey is squealing & spinning in circles, the munchkin is under the table & yanked the basket of laundry with her...guess where all the clean clothes are now??? And my sweet Bear wants to know what's for dessert.....ugh...I dunno =(
So, thank you for letting me be "me" & purging my soul's grossness to you. I need to tell you my dear readers although I have not "met" all of you that I thank God for each & every one of you. You are all wonderful friends & it does encourage me to know that you have had days such as mine & that you keep pressing on towards the prize & I will as well.
And now this exhausted & spent Supermom must go...The Hubby is on his way home from work & I need to quickly pull myself together & throw on a smile for him.
I know he'll need it.

The Blessed Supermom


Ah!! This was so much fun! My little Princess Piggie can no longer take a bath in the kitchen sink! She left a pool on the floor for Mama. But, it was worth the clean up, she's soooo adorable!!!

Homemade "Poptarts"

OK, I came across a recipe for "Homemade Healthy Poptarts" & mentioned how I'd like to give 'em a go. I looked over the recipe & it appeared simple enough, it only called for 5 ingredients so how could I mess this up right??

So we melted the 1 cup of butter & mixed it with
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup plain yogurt

The next step was to "knead the dough just a little bit to make it nice and workable"

So that's what we did, however the dough doesn't look like regular dough, at least not to me it did. Instead it's quite flaky & annoying. Far from workable, I really fought with this stuff....but we eventually got it rolled out on the table & covered with flour.

Then we took a pizza cutter & cut out pop tart sized "rectangles" mmmmm...right. They were shaped interestingly to say the least. Then we added about a 1/2 teaspoon of jelly on 1/2 of the dough rectangles, really...this is what the recipe calls for. 1/2 teaspoon, well, lemme just tell you that as a kid I liked the jelly gooing out the sides. With a 1/2 teaspoon there's no goo *sigh*
So, I would say bump it up a bit if you're like me & the jelly needs to jump up & say "hi!"
Oh, & make sure to spread the jelly around, leaving the edges free so it doesn't all out explode.

Match up the bad boys according to size & use a fork to pinch the edges shut. Then have your adorable kid put in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350° oven for about 25 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.
See the munchkin peeking over there waiting for her snack =)

Then watch said kid thoroughly enjoy her pop tart creation!!

I like this view in the morining =)

The Gabby Mom's-February Mission:Encouraging Moments

"Hi Sweetie, how was your day?" "hmpf...school was a flop today, I forgot a key ingredient for dinner, the baby is in a foul mood, the laundry is over my head, & hey, ya know I really need you to please dump the garbage & would you please wrangle in the girls?? Also, when you get a sec we need to go over the budget...again. But, hey, I'm gonna hide in the room for a minute, I just need to slow down OK??"

AHHHH!!!! This isn't a script! This was just yesterday, how many times has my marriage become a business arrangement or "all about me" Woohoo selfish little me...blahh..
This was convicting, like smack me in the head with a hammer. Yea, I know..."a hammer is not a tool of recovery". Nonetheless, I felt kinda bad as all this came to mind while reading The Gabby Mom's February mission, It was to review Encouraging Moments, the newsletter from Eternal Encouragement Magazine.

Something Lorrie said that really hit home was "Marriage isn't supposed to make you happy. It's supposed to make you married. It's your job to make your marriage happy and satisfying."
Ding! Ding! Ding!!! Yeah, those are my dings, not Lorrie's.
Well, as of late my marriage has been more about living through the day & flopping into bed than even thinking about happiness. Being a mommy is hard work & although my wee ones & not so wee ones are a blessing, some days I'm just zonked! And crabby, and self centered, & well, when the Hubby walks in I get this vision of him...with a cape & huge grin & he has "COME TO SAVE THE DAY!!"
Soooo, in my little scenario where are his needs being met? How am I bringing happiness to him or parenting my children with a good example of what marriage really ought to be??
But, thankfully this newsletter is full of encouragement & advice...go figure =)
Lorrie lists some wonderful points on the subject of a successful marriage and an unhappy one:
  • living life "around" your disagreements
  • taking a "team" attitude toward compromise
  • loving in spite of differences
  • understanding and empathy for your husband's position
  • knowing that quietly talking about differences can strengthen the relationship and improve intimacy
  • knowing that avoiding conflicts doesn't make them go away
Now, I can honestly say The Hubby & I have some of this under our belts however, I struggle with a few. One point popped out at me:

knowing that quietly talking about differences can strengthen the relationship and improve intimacy

Well, "quietly talking" is not something that comes natural to me. I come from a home where yelling to make your point was the norm so it's a constant struggle. Thankfully, God blessed me with a man who is patient with his er...uh...octively challenged wife *smirk*

I highly recommend subscribing to the Encouraging Moments Newsletter so be sure to visit www.homemaking with TEACH.com and subscribe (on the top right of the website)

Another super duper thing you hafta check out while there is Lorrie's website called Chick Flicks for Moms

This Chick Flick website is awesome! It's like little bites of wisdom to just chew on & savor. She all sorts of topics, communication, homemaking, whining..the kids whining we don't get to do that. Each clip is only a few minute so I won't mind if you just head over there & check one out....go ahead...
