Our annual girls weekend was so relaxing and refreshing. Thankful for nearly 13 years of friendship, memories, challenges, growth and life with these two! This weekend was full of belly laughs, tears, inside jokes, truth, grace, encouragement, dance parties and complete recognitions and denial of our age as we struggled to understand the acronyms the cool teens are saying these days. Thanks ladies! I'm beyond blessed by you. @superjocey we missed you more than you know! @kelseymaruska kelseymaruska @kelseykmoore #friendsforlife #snatched #Lbfb #whenyougetarealjob #thankyoumomanddadforbabysitting

How do I even begin to describe this week? This month? Today? This little guy has sure had his fair share of sickness and heartbreak in his three little years of life. I'm beyond blessed with friends and family who will drop everything to help. I'm thankful for a company who encourages me to put jacks first at all times. Im grateful for doctors and nurses and medicine! my heart just aches for those mommies who watch their kids suffer without that kind of support. I'm thankful for a Heavenly Father who sees the ache in our lives and doesn't waste the pain we endure, whether physical, emotional, spiritual or mental. As Jacks and I continue to heal and grow in all areas of our lives I'm noticing that even though the hurt is still present, even though there are still hurdles to jump over, and obstacles to overcome, we are recovering more quickly as unforeseen circumstances arise. We are learning how to live set free and not letting our circumstances define us. We are more aware of our need for Jesus and others needs to be loved, cherished and supported. This little guy who has felt pretty

This little guy who has felt pretty "ishy" and sad the last week went above and beyond today to tell me how much he loved me and he thanked me for picking him up from school and taking him to the doctor. In his words "that was very kind of me!" (Translation: me=you) jacks you have the most tender, compassionate heart even on days when you feel crummy! You're so strong, so brave and so courageous! Our Daddy in heaven knew I needed you to teach me more about His grace, mercy, patience...Thanks for your grace baby, for your love and much needed snuggles and giggles. I love you sweetheart. To the moon and back. πŸ’œ#babyj #selflesslove #healing #itiswellwithmysoul #thankful

Saturday night-he asked me to light a candle and sing him happy birthday to Jackson. Please overlook my lack of vocal skills. He's just too cute and excited to not post it πŸ˜‚β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

Oh sweet boy where has the time gone? You've been through so much in your few short years of life. you are so smart, wise, compassionate, passionate, and you say the funniest most unexpected things to make people laugh. You say things honesty and without a filter. You're so genuine and gracious as I still continue to learn how to be a good mommy. Thanks for all the kisses, hugs, and dance parties in the living room today. Even on a weekend where you weren't feeing well, our plans ended up changing as a result and you were so very tired I'm still so thankful God chose me to be your mommy. Happy 3rd birthday baby! You and me we're going to be ok πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ’œ

When your best friend @cassidymejia of 9+ years comes over and asks you to stand right next to her on her big day, to fight for her and her soon to be husband from this day forward, and to be able to celebrate all the firsts that are yet to come in their lives together you just can't feel anything other than treasured, cherished and loved. Thank you cassidy for inviting me to do life with you! (And of course I said yes πŸ˜‰) #herecomesthebride #lovelanguage #treasured #cherished #intentionalliving #9yearsoffriendshipandstillcounting #sisterhood

For this little guy and far too many others kids (and adults) today can be emotional, painful, and filled with tears. The ache in this little guys heart for such a loss can only be mended by the loving and gracious hands of our Lord and Savior. I believe that God will use the heartache to shape Jackson into a compassionate, grace filled, humble and loyal man someday. I believe that the questions and hurt will be redeemed thru the power of Jesus. And I believe that our Heavenly Father will be enough to satisfy the longing in his little heart. I want to take a moment to genuinely thank each and every man who has willingly stepped up to love, teach and play with Jacks. Thank you for helping close the gap on the void he feels and for demonstrating true selflessness as you continue to pour your time and energy into my sweet little boy. It means the world to me and Jackson is blessed beyond measure to have you in his life. Happy Father's Day!

It's interesting that as we age we often lose sight of our faith. Even Jesus talked about coming to the Kingdom of heaven as a child-full of faith and wonder. Maybe it's because as we get older we learn to become independent and self sufficient. We no longer depend on someone else to fill our tummies with food, wash and comb our hair, take care of us when we're sick, hold us when we cry, and tuck us in to bed for the hundredth time because we were afraid of the shadows and noises lurking in the corners of our rooms. We learn to take control. We can reason and think and often if you're like me, we think too far ahead or even linger to long in the past allowing our minds to play the all too paralyzingly game of

It's interesting that as we age we often lose sight of our faith. Even Jesus talked about coming to the Kingdom of heaven as a child-full of faith and wonder. Maybe it's because as we get older we learn to become independent and self sufficient. We no longer depend on someone else to fill our tummies with food, wash and comb our hair, take care of us when we're sick, hold us when we cry, and tuck us in to bed for the hundredth time because we were afraid of the shadows and noises lurking in the corners of our rooms. We learn to take control. We can reason and think and often if you're like me, we think too far ahead or even linger to long in the past allowing our minds to play the all too paralyzingly game of "what if". I believe God made us process, think and problem solve. I don't believe those in and of themselves are bad things, but I allow it to hinder my faith and keep me from looking to him before I jump to a probable solution. This week though I wanted to trust. So many unexpected things happened this week and it seemed like things were piling on top of each other. Medical bills, Sick toddler, disfunction at work, tough questions with no solid answers...and I woke up today and just kept saying "He's going to show up...He always shows up." Now a few weeks ago, one of my Partners atwork had said they had a gift for me but forgot it (this took place on admin appreciation day). This had happened before and I never received anything but still smiled and said thank you not expecting anything to come of it. So fast forward to today. "He's going to show up..God I want a new book off of Amazon to read but I don't have the money and I know I have commitments." Not even an hour later, the same Partner who said he forgot a few weeks ago walks up to my desk and said "I told you I had something for you." And there it was-an Amazon gift card all wrapped up in a pretty orange bow (my absolute favorite color). And it was like God was whispering "Ash what appeared to him and you as forgetting was My way of showing you my provision, even in the little things. My timing is always perfect." Cue the tears-bring on that childlike faith!
