Aubrey Kinch  saved by grace ♡ wife to @thereal_kinchster faith, home, family + wellness ⋒ come say hi | @something.essential

the last week has been tons of family time spent at mom and dad’s house sharing stories and laughing but also a lot of tears and grief and heartache. family has been in and out of town, meals have been provided, prayers are being said and we all feel the support we’ve been shown.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
dad went home the day my nephew, Alex, turned 11 and we celebrated him this weekend at Grammie and Poppie’s house. this GIF @cekinch made literally is hysterical to me of Emery getting nailed by Alex. 😂😂😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
we miss you dad. it’s not the same and never will be. 💔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#grief #heaven #missyou #fatherinlaw #heartache

a couple things I’m learning —
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the heart and innocence of a child is so pure and kind. Emery laid with me Tuesday morning while I cried rubbing my back and telling me Jesus loves me. Poppie is with Jesus now and his heart isn’t hurting. it made me cry more that my sweet, sensitive spirit 4 year old was extending me such grace and compassion. every time she prays now she asks God to help Grammie’s heart feel better because she misses Poppie and after she prays she tells me she misses him, too. 😭
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
sister, we all do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
another thing I’m learning is grief comes in such waves. we’ve been spending everyday together as a family sharing stories and laughs and intense sobbing moments. questions come in “are you guys okay?” no, we definitely aren’t, but we have a Mighty, sovereign God and that rings through my head constantly in Harold’s voice “we serve a sovereign God” — he always said that. he always would end giving advice to us saying “the Lord knows” and while it’s intense, deep pain right now, that promise stands true.

5 drops each in the diffuser today. ordered some extra oils for support and working hard to let all the feels, feel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jesus be near. we pray for peace and comfort in His arms and Hope for tomorrow we’re one day closer to running into your arms when we come Home.

you’re no longer in pain and Whole and Home. Jesus needed you sooner than we wanted to say goodbye but this is just “see you later”. such a promise we have in Heaven.

I’m so honored to have known you 10 years and see the life you’ve modeled. always faithful, loyal, compassionate, hospitable, gracious, honoring to your wife and family and never wavering in your love of the Lord. you’ve impacted my life and my heart wildly, dad.

may Jesus be glorified in this homecoming. we will see you soon. 💔

to the mom out there feeling defeat, hopelessness, doubt, fear, worry and pain. the mom who is hiding in her closet or on the bathroom floor behind a closed door eyes filled with tears hoping for two peaceful minutes so she doesn't snap. the mom who's roaring and raging with bitterness and anger. the one mad at the way her motherhood journey has been walked. the mom who is struggling to get out of bed with purpose and intentional and drive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to the mom who works 12 hours days to make ends meet, the mom who doesn't get to watch her kids explore and develop during their days because she has to work full-time. to the mom who chooses to work full-time because that's where her heart is. the mom who feels empty day in and day out staying home doing the same thing everyday.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to the mom who was brave and chose a better life for her baby. to the mom who became a mother through opening her home to care and love someone else's baby. to the foster moms, adoptive moms, bonus moms and step moms.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to the mom who is in the depths of depression, anxiety, resentfulness or feeling nothing at all. the mom who didn't want this story for herself but is stepping up and impacting lives wildly. to the mom who does it all - the activities, the park trips, the day dates and parties. the mom who loves getting down on the floor playing with her little one. the one who's own joy comes straight from their baby. to the mom who feels repetitive and never heard.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to the mom who is on her journey to motherhood. this is not the end of your story. have hope. the mom who has angels in Heaven waiting for the sweetest reunion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you are seen. you are loved. you are valued. you are worthy. you are validated. you are needed. you are one of a kind. you are impactful. you are chosen. and you are the world to a tiny human - such a gift to your life, whatever season or category you fall into.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Mother's Day weekend, from my heart to yours. ♥️

WEEK TWO ✔️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They are such brave girls!! I've had a few stern talks with Hollyn telling her @infantswimpeoria is here to help her stay safe and she doesn't need to be afraid so hopefully, the little one warms up to lessons soon. She's all about telling people about it until she's in the pool and not having it. all that's to say, she is progressing and learning and both girls are doing SO amazing!! 😭😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you’re in North Peoria, we love @infantswimpeoria and can’t recommend her enough. don’t mind the excessive swim spam the next 4 weeks because I’m such a #ProudMom 😂🙈😆🥰
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻 swipe for some brave moments for my babies! 🤗

we got not good news about our baby 🐼 today and it’s been a whirlwind of emotions. we are starting insulin tomorrow for our newly diabetic boy. he’s lost nearly 20 pounds and his numbers are extremely high alongside pancreas issues and losing bladder control. he’s family and we will do whatever to make sure he’s healthy, supported and loved, living his best quality life.

CONFESSION // I’ve never watched Friends and was urged by a couple people lately to start so I did and now I can’t stop. #cantstopwontstop 🤣 I’m hooked and obsessed and need to binge watch ASAP to finish it and feel complete again.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve actually been staying up until midnight watching almost every night and this morning I stayed in bed until 10am watching, too. thanks to Drake helping with the girls this morning to make that happen! 🙈👏🏻🤗 #priorities
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
clearly Ross and Rachel will end up together (@mrsbalke — thank you for letting me in on that secret! 🥰) but tell me — is it like The Office where it’ll be on constant rotation on Netflix for the rest of my life now? 😂 am i being dramatic? you all know I don’t do scary/action/suspense so I’m a-okay if that’s the case.

WEEK ONE ✔️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t even tell you how proud I am of the girls for being brave during their ISR swim lessons. 😭😭😭 I watch the videos of their session everyday and actually have tears in my eyes because they’re doing so great! the first day they left saying they were scared but the second day Emery said “I don’t have to be scared mom. God is always with me!” 😭💯😍 now it’s the highlight of their day and they’re both asking to see Miss Jessica! 👏🏻

PLANT BASED STAIN STICK! 👊🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to carry my Tide To Go pen with me everywhere and used the OxiClean spot treatment for any tough stains but switched to @youngliving plant based goodness! I shared a lot more about our journey doing that and how it worked for us on my stories last night but here is a replacement for those mentioned above —⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ 1oz roller (linked in my bio on Amazon Favorites)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ 1/2 capful thieves laundry soap⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ 1 capful thieves household cleaner⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ 1 tsp hydrogen peroxide⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ 10 drops Lemon essential oil⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
+ top with distilled water⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TAG YOUR FRIENDS! 💃🏼👏🏻😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

finally did it. they’re in one room together and it’s been 3 really good nights! I’ve learned when Hollyn wakes up I can let her whine bc Emery will tell her to shut it or I go in and tell her if she wakes Emery, she’s in trouble. works like a charm. 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
paci has been gone 4 weeks, now she’s potty trained and sharing a room with her big sis. SO MUCH GROWTH IN A MONTH. I need a margarita to handle all that. 😂😆😳😭

we do date night every other week (literally the best thing ever) and we swapped it for a day date Tuesday so i could get tattooed. ♥️ we’ve been itching to both get done again sooooo we finally did at @statetattooco with @jwogantattoo. can’t recommend him enough — Andrew goes back in May for some work, too.
