Deeply personal

There have been several songs that have helped me along this journey. I think I put them on my personal blog. But this one below, sums it all up.

This blessing came through raindrops from the storms we endured. It came through pain. It came through some of THE ROUGHEST times my marriage has ever known. Lost income, surprise pregnancy (dr.'s said couldn't really happen) during the loss of income, a bankruptcy, a move. It took a harder toll on us than we knew. The past 2 years have not been easy. We were closer than ever to divorce. But we stuck it out. Communicated. We worked through it (and that is not easy either). I am leaving a lot of other things out (like the toll it took on our children, crazy people in the neighborhood we now live in (drugs, fights, and such), ect.)

We have endured so many storms. Cried many tears. But we are in a wonderful place now. And that alone is enough. That alone is worth it. But now, we have this incredible blessing. A beautiful home to raise our girls in. A good neighborhood. We can give our kids the life they deserve. I can't tell you what that means to us both.

This journey has taught me so much. About me. About my marriage. About my faith. I am still learning. And I hope I never stop.

This song means so much to me right now. It sums up our journey in a way. I just wanted to share it with those of you who have taken this journey with me. I don't expect any comments. I just wanted share with you something that means a lot to me right now.


  1. I hope this helps encourage some of you out there who I know are awaiting to start this process, wondering if your past mistakes will come back to haunt you. Don't ever give up hope!

  2. This is a beautiful song thanks for sharing! You and your family totally deserve this beautiful house and guess what you are getting your brand new house next month. Now you can get a head start on packing and you have your three little girls to help you out!

    Marriage sure has its up and downs no one have ever said its easy. It is important to communicate with one another without communication it really does take a toll. Your story is totally inspiring. Congrats on your approval!

    Hugs to you.
