Always Something

Leave a comment Standard

So, for some reason, I thought starting a business would be simple. I figured, it couldn’t be but so hard, right? Wrong! It’s super hard. Between juggling mommyville & and goodwifeville, it’s been quite a task. I’m not complaining, but you know it’s always something to cause a bit of stress. I can’t remember which exact preacher said this, but the quote was, “Whenever you get to a new level, there’s always a new devil!” I laughed when I heard that quote because we just found out that we need a new bathroom, and we need it now. Of course, a new bathroom is certainly not in our budget, so the next best thing to do is ask for help. Although we haven’t received much yet, I know God will provide. I decided to do a gofundme to raise money for our new bathroom. I think there are always going to be obstacles to success and the lesson I’m learning now as a new mom is that my old ways of dealing with stress are no longer going to work. I can’t cry all the time, think negative thoughts, close myself off to the world, complain, and expect to get good results.

See, I’m a glass half empty kind of gal, and it’s not on purpose. Really! I’ve always been this way even as a child. But it’s never too late to change no matter how long you’ve been doing something. So, I have made a consciouse decision to always look at what I DO have instead of what I DON’T. Each of us has something that we need to work on, and though for me, I still feel like, “Woe is me! It’s always something!,” I know that it’s all going to work out, somehow.

If you’d like to donate towards helping us get a new bathroom, please click the link below. Every bit counts. We are planning to put up a tribute in the bathroom to say thanks to all who have donated once the bathroom is complete.

Just know, life is always full of surprises, and it’s okay to ask for help! 😊


My Real Dream Come True

Work or stay home? Work or stay home?– That question has been storming my brain for nearly 8 months. Ever since my son Noah was born, my life has changed. Everything that once was important has become minor in comparison to him. I loved teaching. I STILL love teaching, but I love Noah more. I’ve cried many tears trying to figure out how I could spend as much time with him as possible. I’m sure that not growing up with a mother partially fueled my firm refusal to part from him, even if I was making a difference in children’s lives.

The truth is that I’ve always dreamed of being a business owner. I wanted to call my own shots and be my own boss. I wanted to make a legacy for my family so that we didn’t have to struggle day to day and week to week to survive. I have always wanted to take care of my dad so that driving a cab was a hobby instead of a necessity. I’ve always dreamed of THIS!  Yet, I never really dreamed of being a mommy. I never could imagine what having a child would be like or if I actually wanted one. But the moment I saw his face, I knew that there was no job more important than this. Noah is my real DREAM COME TRUE!

Now that Noah’s House LLC is really official, the stress of it all is frightening, but the opportunity to create something for other parents and their young kids to enjoy is quite fulfilling. I haven’t found any place yet that makes parents feel just as important as the kids. Creating a place filled with love is my mission. I am going to touch lives and help make others happy all while being the best mommy I can be!

Thank you Noah for being my inspiration and my REAL dream come true! image
