Mighty Minnie Monday

This Monday is Really exciting at our house! Minnie is going to church camp! She is so super excited, I am really trying show excitement even if I am scared to death. I feel like I am throwing her to a pack of Lions. As emotional as that sounds I am afraid that she is going to get hurt…. But I am more afraid if I don’t encourage her to enjoy being a kid she will hurt far more later. I said to someone today, if she gets hurt we can go to the doctor… Some people might think that this is a neglectful thought but if we don’t give her an opportunity to grow and be “Mighty” there will be nothing a doctor can do to fix her.

I know that I am not the only Mommy that wants to hold tight but is choosing to let go, so their children can grow.. Image our heavenly father being all knowing he was able to see everything. From temptation to the pain that his son would come across. Yet he still sent him… knowing what was ahead.

Growing pains hurt we tell our kids all the time. I think we just forget to tell our self’s that it is okay to hurt. After all we are growing with each step, broken heart, CAMP… that our babies go through.
Good news is one day they will be grown up… Bad news is one day they will be all grown up…
Thank God for grandchildren…

Totally Ty Tuesaday

Totally Ty… My son is an all American Texan Boy…. from BBQ to Football. He also is a pre – teen that I am getting ready to start home schooling through JR high. Just as I have had you walk with me through the journey of my life as a hospital mom I am asking you to walk with me through my journey as a homeschooling mom of a Pre – teen all American Texan boy. This I am sure is going to be not only some of the most fun I have EVER had but I am sure I will cry more that my fair share…

Why did we chose to home school Ty now??? we really feel that for our son…Please understand I am really wanting to be open about this for my son I think… Just because I think this is right for Ty does not mean I think it is right for all children. I really believe that it is an individual choice that has to be made with in your family. I don’t think that home school verse public schooling is a fight that moms should have with each other I feel like we should support each other in our decisions. That being said, we chose to home school our son through Junior high with the premise of hoping and praying that we will instill a firm foundation for the next three years. Hoping and praying that we can build a strong leader and a solid educational foundation before lending him back to the public education system for his high school years. You notice how I said Hoping and praying… along with building a leader…. I believe if I have him at home to teach him not only his general education but his biblical education his leadership skills are more likely to develop… I am Praying and I hope y’all will to!

So I will update on Tuesdays maybe what we are learning or maybe what Ty is up to in sports or what his latest creation in the kitchen has been. Whatever the case maybe my hope is that you get to know Ty just as well as you know Mighty Minnie!

Here is a picture of my All American Texan Boy!

Mighty Minnie Monday

I am sure that it does not surprise you that when Minnie was in the Hospital I had many moments that were very real that I wondered what would I do if she did would not make it… or wounder what would happen if she could never walk again… And so many times I was afraid that we would go back in time and she would not be able to
eat again..

I can not begin to explain the horror when I walked into the recovery room and she told me she could not feel her legs… I also can not begin to explain the absolute JOY of watching her learn how to walk, then run and now ride her bike…. Hearing her say how thankful she is that her legs did not stay paralyzed forever is amazing and like no other feeling.

I think that as parents we are given these babies and when they are little we rejoice over every milestone. We soon forget that as children and teens they are still making milestones each day. For some reason we stop clapping? Having Minnie so sick this year makes me remember that each step is so important just as important as the first… maybe even more because you never know when it is there last. I know that sounds total morbid but I am here to tell you more parents have to let go of there children before they are ready. So I think our challenge today is to learn how to celebrate and hold on to each step.

Minnie is making huge strides every day. She is swimming a ton, riding her bike for two or more miles now! I can’t begin to tell you how incredible she is. The Lord is shining through her and because of that she is touching the world around her. She is working hard at cooking and sewing. And she is and amazing artist! I will see if her daddy will upload some of her artwork!

We are so blessed, I know I say this all the time and I forever will say it. I will never forget the blessings I have been given…….
