Little religious rant/ prayer requests

So I spoke with my uncle today, his father is 90 years old (he is my “self adopted uncle, not blood, might as well be.) and has had major memory issues and they think he needs to get put in to a home to keep him safe. He recently was in a car accident, he hit the guard rail. He doesn’t remember anything that happened, doesn’t remember even why he was driving. They revoked his license and he will be in a “retirement home” in the next few months. please keep our family in your prayers.
My Uncle has asked me and Luke to move in to his dads house with him because he cannot manage staying there alone, as he helps us with bills, and it would be cheaper to have us live with him and help him maintain the home as well as his dads elderly pets since im a stay at home mom. Im so glad to be moving in to a house, but its very VERY bittersweet as its only happening because of what has happened with his dad.
please pray that The Lord leads this, and shows us what needs to happen. I love my Uncle Steve like a father, he has been in my life since i was 13, my best friend at the time was his God-Daughter, and he became close friends with my mom and my aunt angie, and he has always been supportive for me both emotionally, and financially when possible. I feel so badly for him that this is happening to his father, but I know with us there to help him and keep him company, he wont become depressed or lonely, as he will have my husband to talk guy stuff with, and me to talk emotions with, and all three of us to be there for him if he needs us. 
Romans 8:31

If God is for us, then who can be against us?
My favorite Scripture, it fits for almost every situation you could possibly come across. God is bigger than all of this, and our lives and our future is in His hands, our choices are made after praying on it, and praying together, and discussing things over together. Me and my Husband converted to Mormonism, and Ill tell you it is the first time I ever felt welcome the first day walking in. They care about one another, and they bring you meals if you are injured or sick. When i was pregnant with Spencer, the Relief Society brought me meals, both Lunch and Dinner for myself and my Husband. After I had Spencer, he got sick and i made one phone call and one of the wonderful ladies in the R.S. brought me a nose freida, and baby tylenol to lower his fever, and pedialyte to help with electrolytes. When people think of Mormons, they think of “Having 7 Wives”, and “Bigotry” and claim that its a Cult. The things that I have learned, is that it is so muh like christianity with minor differences. I still believe that The Lord is my Savior, and that he sent us His Son, Jesus Christ to Wipe away our sins, and that His love is Forever, and He forgives us of our sins, and is always listening to us. I may get judged by what religion I am, but you know what? I really dont care. I am not the type of person to judge anyone by who they are, whether its color of skin, where you come from, what your sexual orientation is, or what religion you follow, The Lord says in Mark 12:30-32:
“And you shall love The Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31″The second is this, ‘you shall love thy neighbor as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32 The scribe said to Him, “Right, Teacher; You have truly stated that He is one, and there is no one else besides Him.”
If you have questions, I’m an open book and I will answer them to the best of my ability, and if I don’t have an answer, I will get one for you as soon as possible, and I request if you have any judgement to please keep it to yourself, I have and will block anyone who puts me down or attacks me because of my PERSONAL beliefs, I dont question any one of you or your beliefs, so I expect the same courtesy. Also for anyone saying that Im pushing beliefs on my child, you could not be more wrong. When my son tells me he wants to look in to other churches, I am more than willing to take him to whatever services he wants to go to, his religion is his choice, I will however take him to church until he decides that he doesnt agree with what they say, not that he doesnt want to go because he would rather play etc. anyways. im done ranting. Have a wonderful night. 
 John 13:34-35

“…That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”

All Lives Matter. #EndRacism 

As I sit here eating dinner with my son, and watching his new favorite movie Cars, I can’t help but feel terrified for my child, and the world he is growing up in. I love my sons more than anything in this world (first born is not living with me but I’ll get to that at another date), and I can’t help but feel like I did them wrong by choosing to conceive and bring them in to this totally fucked up world. Now don’t get me wrong, my children are the absolute best thing to ever happen to me. I just wish that this world had more to offer them. 

This is all stemming from my husbands recent decision to become a police officer. Once he puts on that uniform he is an instant target, it doesn’t matter if he’s one of the good guys, or if he has a family and kids at home, all they see is a blue uniform, the “enemy”. It takes everything I’ve got not to beg him to choose another path, but this is what he wants. 

I know I’ll probably get a lot of crap for this, but I’m so damn sick of the Black Lives Matter Movement! It’s racism! White people are not the only ones who can be racist, people! I’ve seen rallies in my home town where there are friends of mine who are white supporting the cause, and they get kicked out and banned because of the color of their skin, when they are fighting for the BLM movement. Don’t you guys get it? It’s RACISM!!! The way I see it, ALL LIVES MATTER! It doesn’t matter what color skin you have, or where you were born, everyone matters, not just Blacks or Whites, or Mexicans or Asians. We are all people and we all deserve equality damnit! When we as a people finally realize that, I think that this world will be a much better place. I have friends who watched me grow up, watched me build myself up from living on the streets, watched me get kicked out at 15 by my mother who was strung out on meth, watched me fight to get to where I am today, and those people who watched me struggle still say I’m “privileged”. How is that privilege? I had it harder than most of the teens I knew growing up, I didn’t choose the life I had, I was dealt a shitty hand but I made it to where I am not because the color of my skin, but because of the determination in my heart and soul, I conquered it all, I dug myself out, I didn’t have rich parents to help me, I didn’t have family that would help. Hell even the family that could help, wouldn’t help. I was judged by my mothers life choices but I never let that control me, I never let that determine who I would be. In fact, watching what my mom lived thru made me even more determined to be someone that my great grandfather could and would be proud of. I went back to school and graduated on my own, I lived on the streets but with the help of my husband we got it to where we are now not because of the color of our skin, but because of the fight, determination, and willingness to do whatever it took to be self reliant and not have to slum it. 

Anyways my point is, just because someone is white skinned, or black skinned, that DOES NOT determine who you will be, you just have to fight for what you want in life, have the willingness to do whatever it takes to be the person you want to be! Don’t let anyone tell you any different, because in this life, you can be whatever you dream to be as long as you put in the work to get there. 
ALL LIVES MATTER.

No race is better than the other, we are all created equally, and if we want to get somewhere in life, we need to respect everyone, not just those of certain ethnicity. 
Live laugh love always ❤️

meal planning? meh

So, with our tax money this year we decided to buy a SECOND Deep Freezer, but this one is upright. So the reasoning behind the deep freeze is because I’m trying to lower the cost of groceries monthly. We get the basic groceries from our church, and i buy the rest, so with the food from the church i plan to make like 10-15 different meal-in-a-bags, and at least 2 of each different meal, and I also plan on making very large pots of food, to use like TV dinners but home made for the microwave to make meals easier on me when I’m in a fibro flare. Well I ordered a bunch of freezer safe Tupperware that prevents freezer burn, and of course USPS totally screws up and takes my package back to the post office, yet they had no problem leaving my Fit Bit package in the pouring rain. ugh i swear! Anyways so now the meal planning is post-poned til next week, and i made all this Spaghetti for dinner tonight and have to stick it in a ziploc until i get the Tupperware next week. Well that’s pretty much the excitement of the week! see ya later!

Live Laugh Love Always!!!

( I’ll add links to my recipes later )

Reunited!!

So today started off pretty lame lol, Drs appts, pain, the usual. One majorly happy thing happened tho, I got to see my cousins that I haven’t seen in years! It was so nice visiting with them and hanging out chatting about our lives, catching up, I can’t wait til summer when we can have pool parties and hang out by the pool teaching my son how to swim 🙂

Anyways, so I finally got the yarn that I needed to finish my nieces blanket and I can’t wait til I can finally mail off the completed blankets that I made for my Florida family, now I just gotta figure out what to make my BIL, SIL, and FIL.

As you get older, you really start to realize how important it is to be close to your family and let them know how much they mean to you. Just because you grow up doesn’t mean that you ever grow apart, they a are still your family, and family is everything so make sure that you don’t take any moment for granted, tomorrow isn’t promised, so make sure that you spend as much time as possible with those who you love, whether it’s blood, by marriage, or friends who you consider family. 

Well, back to crocheting away!!!

Girl Scout Cookies are evil!

Okay so we finally get our tax return, and the first thing I do is hunt down people with cookies! Thank Heavens for Facebook Sales groups!!! Hahaha

I swear it’s no coincidence that tax season= Girl Scout Cookie Season… It was planned so that when people have lots of money it goes to the delicious little thin mints, or my new fave, toffee tastic with Nutella on top 😉

Man there are so many things we need to get with tax money, and every year it’s not enough :-/ we need new furniture because well, this is a picture of the arm rest… 😱😱😱 

 yes that’s right… Wooden looking duct tape haha. My son when he started teething would get on the couch and chew on the arm rest, and we would find little bits of the couch in his poop lol. It worked! He stopped chewing on it!!! 

Oh, back to the list of tax return purchases. I was going to get a Fitbit but decided cookies were far more satisfying haha! Well hubs is finally coming to the dark side and getting an iPhone 6+, he wanted the 6s+ but I reminded him that if he waits he can get the 7 for his bday in sept 😉 so he’s settling so we can both get the 7 when it gets released. More Apple products we are getting, I’m getting a MacBook for school, I swear I have the absolute worst luck when it comes to computers and I always end up having a slow ass piece of junk, so I’m also including AppleCare like a smarty. ( all our Apple stuff has Apple care cuz, why the hell not) 

What else? OH YEAH!!! gotta spend like a bunch of money on Young Living Essential oils, hubs uses a blend in a spray bottle for his hair to help it grow and not get frizzy, ( my YL recipes will be added somewhere on my page eventually, check out the seed to seal info here) and I gotta re-up on the cold buster ( diffuse 4 drops of each thieves, RC, and peace and calming at bedtime )for my son, he’s getting his first real cold since birth so I wanna knock that out asap. We also gotta get baby gates cuz my smarty little fruit loop has learned to knock over the one that stands alone, so we gotta get wall mounted ones. Hmm. I think that’s it. But it’s all so darn pricey! Oh and we r paying off some debt too 🙂
Anywho, thanks for reading my crazy rant haha! 

Live❤️Laugh❤️Love Always 👍🏼

Cats+water=🤕😵😱

Well I’ve had a pretty interesting night to say the least lol. My flamepoint Siamese is massively shedding his winter coat and my house looks like it snowed fur so I had to not only brush him but give him a bath, and let me tell you it wasn’t pretty lol. But hey at least he’s clean 🙂 

Anyone know how to naturally reduce shedding on a cat? I use young living oils and I’d like to use them to help shedding but I’m not sure how to go about it. Meh.

Anywho, I think me and the hubs figured out our income issue, hubs is going to apply to be SDPD! We found out that his ticket won’t effect his application so all we gotta do is try some practice tests and prep him for the physical portion. Heh easier said than done right? Also, I spoke to my mother-in-law and she is gunna pay me to be her assistant at the preschool she works at, it’s pretty easy too it’s basically just prepping her classes the day before, and helping her with clean-up. So that’s epic. 

Well that’s it for tonight, this momma has to finish laundry and get to bed, later!!
Live life laugh lots and love always❤️

Life is stressful

Well my family like most young families just starting out, have been struggling to meet ends meat. So we have been trying to come up with ideas on what we can do to be able to afford our own place, and health care. Sure most companies offer health benefits but the prices are outrageous! For a 3 family home it’s close to 1,000$ per month!!! 

Well my husband came home from work with an idea, to become a San Diego Police Officer. Immediately I started to panic, with all the crap going on and police being killed due to some crooked cops making them all look bad, what if someone hurt my husband, or God forbid, he dies in the line of duty!!! I respect him for wanting to choose such a profession but the thought of possibly losing him terrifies me to the very core. I need insight, ideas and advice. I’m so lost on this, but this would mean financial security for our family, we would never again have to worry how we would pay rent. But I just don’t know. Is it worth it? Is it worth possibly losing my husband because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time? Is it worth my son growing up not knowing his father? Is it worth having my son wonder what it would be like if daddy was around? Ugh advice anyone?
