Farewell 2017!!!

Well here we are. The final hours of 2017.  As I reflect on this year, I am reminded of the ups, downs, victories, defeats, joys and sorrows that we have encountered. But through it all, God has remained faithful to my family and I would not change a thing. I am a firm believer that everything, good and bad, happens for a reason. I am grateful for the people I have met and those that I have reconnected with this year. If I have learned anything this year, it's that we should always seek to be better neighbors, better spouses, better parents and better friends. I hope that I have done just that for someone this year.

One of the biggest things I am grateful for this year is my family. The move from Knoxville to Huntsville was not the easiest. There were many moments when I questioned if this was where we needed to be. But God always reminded us of how he orchestrated our transition here. So there is no doubt we are where we need to be at this time. God has provided for us in many ways here and I am forever thankful.

I pray that 2018 is a blessed year for everyone. To all the mommies out there, I pray you worry less and pray more. I pray your love for Christ deepens as well as your love for your family. I pray that you keep pushing forward and continue to seek God's will for your life. Remember, the same God who sits on the throne in 2017 will still be on the throne in 2018.

Happy New Year, mamas!!

God, The Plan Changer

It's been quite a while since I have posted anything to the blog. Since Joshua was born our life has been turned upside down and all around. Our lives have changed so much since my last post, I am still trying to process all of it. So where do I begin?

In September, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year Anniversary. We decided to throw a party at a local Thai restaurant with family and friends. It was amazing-- Great food with great people.  It truly was an unforgettable night. But while we were enjoying the company of our friends, in the back of my mind I knew that things were about to change. For me, the party felt like a farewell. I tried not to think about it, but I knew it was coming. See a couple of days from that night, Jason was scheduled to have an interview with a company in another state. And I knew…before they even talked…I knew within myself, our lives were about to change again.
Sure enough, within a few weeks, an offer had been made to my husband. It was too good …

Welcome to Mama's Maze!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog—Mama's Maze. I am truly excited about starting this blog. God placed this on my heart a while ago so it is awesome to see it come to fruition.  I have never done anything like this before, so I am thrilled about venturing into uncharted territory. Writing is a passion of mine, and I love talking about the goodness of God.  So what better way to put the two together than in a blog.
How did I come up with the name Mama's Maze?  Well, one day as I was pondering on what the name of this blog would be, I thought about my experiences as a mother.  I mean, after being in the game for five years now, what could I compare motherhood to?  After much thought, the word "maze" came to mind. If you have ever been in a maze or played some type of game that had one, you know it can be challenging, frustrating, and rewarding if you ever make it through.  There are so many twists and turns that it can be quite overwhelming…

How I Became a Mother, Part 2!

When I last wrote, my husband and I had just found out that I was pregnant moments before we were to see the doctor about my upcoming surgery.
We walked into that fertility doctor's office with the biggest smiles on our faces. It had been a while since we had experienced this type of joy. They called us back into the doctor's office and immediately we told him what had just happened. But his response was not at all what we expected. With as much coldness as  you could imagine, he said in so many words, "it doesn't matter. This pregnancy isn't viable. You still need to have this surgery." I couldn't believe my ears. He still wanted to do the surgery! At that point I knew we needed to get as far away from this doctor as we possibly could. Even if this pregnancy did not make it, his approach to us was very frigid and insensitive.
Our hearts sank!  We told him we were still going to wait and see what happens. We left that office with a determination to neve…
