Life As I Now Know It

Things can change in an instant and will never be the same. Sometimes change is a good thing.......Sometimes it's not. I am not going to pretend that I am the same person that I used to be....because I am not. The VERY sudden and VERY unexpected death of my mother has rocked me to the core. It has changed me. I wish I could say that it was for the best..... but I don't think that is the case. Life is so short. The choice is clearly ours in how we respond to the ups and downs that come our way. There is an exception to this though. For me it was my mother's death. I suppose it could be different for everyone. She was such a major part of my life. I do hope that one day I would return to the positive, energetic, loving, caring person that I used to be. For now..... I will praise God in the storm. I will be happy for who God has placed in my life. I am really thankful that I still have my dad with us. He is a big part of our everyday life.

Happy Birthday to....

Jaden!! Time goes by so quickly and it is so very important to cherish each moment. I just want to say what a blessing this young man is to me and his father. He is always there to lend a helping hand. He loves his little brothers and his big/little sister Jurney.( I say this because she is my little mini at only 5'2) He is such a stud and I love him to pieces!! he is a sophomore in high school. He collects knives...I think he has over 50 of them.. he likes to shoot his bow in the back yard.. and loves his Xbox! He will be getting his learners soon...I think he is more nervous than I am...well maybe not lol... I love you bud and could not ask for a better son than you are turning out to be. Hope you had a very very Happy Birthday!



Proverbs 23:15 "My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine."

Heart Broken

So much has happened. I am so heart broken over the loss of my mother. She was my side kick for the last several years...we did everything together...including taking care of my dad together.... She died five weeks ago, very quickly and very unexpectedly. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of her and the great loss that I feel. I still take care of my dad....now by myself.
I miss you more than words can say....I love you mom.

Revelation 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

~JOY to the WORLD~


(Josiah.....was really focusing on opening this present!! Love it!! *had to share*)
My Christmas day was a quiet one...For the first time...it was just us:me, ry and the kids...My parents were not able to make it. It has been a family tradition to wake the kids...read the Christmas story found in Luke...then wait for my parents to show up...then share our Christmas with them...but his year...as you may know...my dad is not doing well. He only leaves the house to go to dialysis...and that is about it...It is hard to think about this being his last Christmas with us...I was blessed...however....about 5 that night...to get a phone call that said my dad and mom were on their way!! Yay!!! So we had a nice dinner together and showed grandpa all the fun stuff we got for Christmas.. :) I hope you all had a blessed Christmas with the ones that mean the most to you!!
Luke 2:10 "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people."

~Merry Christmas~

The kids did a very good job at our churches performance! It was called "Christmas Delights". Jurney and Sherri are at the piano getting ready to play a special. Jaden, Joshua and the Montoya boys are saying a Christmas poem.

Happy Birthday to....


Jurney!!! I love this girl!! She is 16!! Yes, I am having a hard time accepting this! haha!!
She is a help to me and to anyone who needs it. She babysits. She is one of the piano players for our church. She is driving (still learners permit, but I am in NO hurry to move that along!). She is now allowed to wear mascara. She is a real blessing to me! Love you Jurney, and I hope that you had a very Happy Birthday!
