A Happy Mother's Day, despite.

(I wrote this post last week, and forgot to publish it, because I was going to add pictures. I'll still do that)

So, we were hoping to take this awesome trip to see Moab, UT and the surrounding awesomeness that resides in the Arching Red Rocks of the Desert... However, plans change. Brothers Jordan and Jon set off Thursday night after work for their leg of the journey. They got there before us to secure a campsite and get a day of biking in before our arrival. Cool.

When they got their in the middle of the night, the two boys drove around for almost two hours looking for a spot. They were fortunate enough to sleep in the car in a ditch in Moab, because there weren't any campsites available in any of the BLM campgrounds (they don't take reservations, just first come first served). BUMMER.

Well, we received a message from them through their spotty service, that they had eventually secured the ONLY campsite left in all the BLM grounds. Woohoo! Victory!! Then they went biking. Later: a sore wrist, scraped up arms, a broken something in the fork of the shocks of the something on the bike that needed tubing from an aquarium...

After Tim, Joy and I were off work, we scurried home and packed--Joy was totally ready and waited on us--before heading out through the mountains. Turns out rain in Denver means a cold, wet snow in las montanas. yuck. As it got closer to dark, we neared Georgetown (still on the East side of the Continental Divide and the Eisenhouer Tunnel). Then we came to a near stand-still. yuck again. Then we called the 511 Road Conditions number to see what's up.

(Picking up again right here)

Then we came home. Jon and Jordan came home the next day. We had cookies and played RISK. :)

On Sunday, Tim made me breakfast, bathed cody, hung out with him while I slept in to nearly 9am!!! And we had the most wonderful family day just the three of us and Maggie. We got pie at Village Inn, and walked around the Bear Creek Greenbelt at the Stone House Park. It was just magical :)



pretty and full of the cotton from cottonwood trees!

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
