💔 V.XXIII.MMXVIII. ✖️ Today marks the one year anniversary of the day that the doctor looked at me and said that the baby inside me did not have a heartbeat. Her words still resonate in my mind. As I woke up today with breath in my lungs, it seemed as though everything was was grey around me. I listened to some Elevation Worship trying to set my heart and mind on things above, on heavenly things. Coming the realization that my first baby (and the second baby I miscarried months later) opened his or her eyes to eternity, immediately ushered into God’s presence brought me peace. My babies experienced no pain. I am forever grateful. For the rest of my life here on earth, if I have to shoulder the hurt and sorrow, that is my cross to bear. And “though the seasons change, Your love remains.” 🙏🏽 #deathanniversary #life #heaven #eternity #Godspresence #amotherslove #babyloss #loss #hurt #pain #iam1in4 #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #miscarriagesupport #miscarriagesurvivor

Tycker att jag borde få något slags pris i att kunna dölja sjukdomar & mående så bra som jag ändå lyckas med☝🏻☀️ Vi är precis hemkomna efter hämtat hem stora tjejen från förskolan. Fick ställa in dagens möte som jag egentligen skulle iväg på, jag mår nämligen riktigt uruselt. Den här förkylningen flyttar sig verkligen runt, först var det halsmandlarna sen bihålorna sedan luftrören, följt av lungorna sen nu idag vänster öra. Fick sånt tryck i örat tidigare idag så jag fick migrän under förmiddagen😳 Och nu så hör jag mig själv i det örat också, OTROLIGT jävla irriterande. Fyfan för hur jag låter.🙉 Mår även illa idag, haft frossa också.. med andra ord är det här inte en utav mina bästa. Théo har dragit på sig förkylningen rätt rejält nu han med, för dra en grääännns vad hes ungen är just nu. Och det kommer bara gnäll från honom.😩 Har seriöst lust att flytta till ett annat land, orkar inte med att vara sjuk konstant hela vintrarna och sedan titt som tätt under sommaren med? Ska livet verkligen se ut på det här sättet, jag flippar fan ur snart. #siblingsforlife #bugaboodonkey #motherhoodstyle #motherslove #amothersthoughts #amotherslove #mamainsta #inkedupgirls #inkedmomsofinstagram #inkedmom #tattedup #tattedgirlsofig #motherhoodinink #motherandbaby #mamalife #singlemamalife #mamastwo #theyaremyeverything

I am constantly looking for different meditations. I believe in the power of meditation 🧘🏾‍♀️. In all aspects of life, especially parenting, we need to have clarity and meditation aids in the process. I started a new meditation book focused on African American Parents this morning and so far I’m loving it. ____________________________________________Today’s food for thought: Find time to focus on each child and their interest outside of electronics and TV. #noted #morningmeditation #motherof2 #greyeyedbabygang #amotherslove #lifebalance

My main goal in life is to always make sure you're well taken care of and loved. My handsome baby boy, I love you to the moon and back. ❤

I’ve been thinking about Emma a lot lately. Truthfully, she’s never far from my thoughts. Memories of her spunkiness and love hover alongside every moment but lately? Well, thoughts of her jump front and center.
Maybe it’s because this is her senior year of high school and, like every other parent of her peers, I wonder what she would do next. Which college would she choose? Which career would she work towards? What things would capture her attention, her heart, her soul?
My heart aches for her. My arms yearn to squeeze her close. My mind wonders and dreams of all the could-have-beens of this precious little girl’s life.
. .
I wish I knew why. No, not necessarily the why but the how. The details of God’s sovereign plan.
I look at the story of Joseph in the Bible. I see the trials and sorrows he endured, many beyond his control. I feel a kinship to this man from Scripture. A bond that exceeds time and space. A man who suffered and a man whom God used in a mighty way to impact a nation for their good and for God’s glory.
“Until the time came to fulfill his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character.” Ps. 105:19
I wish I could see the end of the story and follow the trail of tears I leave while trusting God with the details. I wish I could tell you how this mystery works —how He uses our sorrows and pain for something good as He tends to our hearts and souls, comforting us as only a gracious Shepherd can do. I don’t know how, I just know He does.
. .
As I miss my sweet girl and wonder what she might be like today, I continue to trust Him even when I don’t have the answers. I grasp truth and sorrow in a holy embrace and slowly exhale.
“I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath!” Psalm 104:33

Mit Kindern entdeckt man die Welt auf eine ganz neue, spannende Art und Weise. -
Manchmal erscheint es einem so, als wären die Ansprüche an sich selbst und an das Leben mit der Körpergröße mitgewachsen. Und erst diese kleinen Geschöpfe holen einen wieder runter und zeigen einem, dass die Aussicht und der Horizont von circa 80 cm weiter unten genau so herrlich und weit und sein können.

As she embarks on her next milestone in life-it’s been a great year! She’s now leaving elementary school and with more wisdom than she started. This year has ended with a bang! I’m a #proudmommy #shesgrowingup #msauriele #myworld #amotherslove #myheartbeat

It's is easier to build up a child than to repair an adult...choose your words wisely 👊

I am usually a fantasy reader but this one was recommended to me by my sister and I was truly amazed!

Such an inspiring story! This book is a looking glass into the life of a child with autism and actually based on the authors son.
----------------------------------------- Synopsis:

Kristine Barnett's son Jacob has an IQ higher than Einstein's. At nine he started working on an original theory in astrophysic that many believe may someday put him in line for a Nobel Prize. At twelve he became a paid researcher in quantum physics. But Jacob's story is all the more remarkable because when he was diagnosed at the age of two, Kristine was told he might never be able to tie his own shoes.
The spark is a remarkable memoir of a mother who, against the advicr of the "experts", followed her instincts, pulled her son out of special ed, and began preparing him for mainstream kindergarten on her own. Kristine resolved to follow Jale's "spark"-his passionate interests. Why concentrate on whay he couldnt do? Why not focus on he could do? The results were beyond anything anyone could have imagined. Dramatic, inspiring, and transformative. The spark is about the power of love and courage in the face of overwhelming obstacles, and the dazzling possibilities that can occur when we learn to tap the true potential that lies within evrry child, in all of us.
--------------------------------------------------- You realize that with every child they each have their own obstacles to overcome. As parents we try to do WHATEVER we can to help and unfortunately there it is going to be a rollercoaster of motions for everyone.

Such a beautifully written story and something to add to your summer reading list.
