Woman Overboard!

The waves have been rough this week...a "Radio the Coast Guard" and "Throw me a life preserver" kind of week. (Actually, it's been more like a few months, but who's counting?)

We all have challenges we have to deal with in life. Some are much greater than others, and I am thankful for the things that I have not had to endure.

I thank Heavenly Father every day for the health and safety our family has been blessed with thus far. I know we have a lot to be grateful for.

Just like the ocean, life is unpredictable, and when the waves get rough, we appreciate the smooth sailing so much more.

Until then, I've just got to tighten my life jacket, stay afloat, and hug my kids a little tighter.

(And eat chocolate...lots of chocolate!)

Dear, I am rooting for you. You have a whole crew that will help you steer your boat through this storm. Use them.

I hear ya girl! I've come to realize that this is just life...there are no stages in life...it just is life. So yep, hang on tight...and Thank Heavenly Father every day that we made it to the next. I'm probably hanging on to the same life preserver you are ♥

maybe you need a date with yourself and that classic movie overboard - how can a cheesy 80's movie not make anyone feel better? if even for an hour :)

sending love and hugs...
