The hardest battle I have ever been through...part 2

Hi dear readers still out there! I am still here. In fact, I have plans for this blog. Big plans to expand it beyond just a marriage blog. I respect reviews, don't you? I like to get other opinions on items, movies, books, t.v. shows, etc. I already review marriage books on this blog, so now I am going to review all kinds of things!

I also plan to do a 30 day devotional on here! I am really excited about it! I plan to start in January.

I hope you plan to join me on this 30 day challenge!

So, that's what I have planned for the very near future but now it's time to continue with what's been going on with us..


The months following the miscarriage were hard, but it provided me time to heal and it really brought K and I closer than ever. Besides God, if it wouldn't have been for him, I would have been lost. He was my rock. It really taught us what it means to pull together...a lesson we would definitely need in the future. We always have made a great team, but this brought our marriage to a different level. We had been through my step-dad's passing together, but losing a baby (no matter how early) was a blow. We had to lean on each other and on God.

We continued praying and trusting God and in December 2016, our lives changed yet again...we were pregnant! I wish I could say I didn't fear..but I did. God is teaching me a lot about fear and trusting His peace. Can I admit something to you? If you haven't figured it out already...I struggle with fear. It's something I really have to pray for and rely on God for His peace.


When I saw that word, I was immediately transported back to the first pregnancy. I started praying the minute I saw that word. I knew God was going to have to be in control. That Christmas was such an exciting one. Thinking back to last year as this special time of year is quickly approaching, I can't help but smile. K is an only child. His parents have been married for 50 years. We found out we were pregnant on Dec 10 2016 but waited until Christmas to tell them just to make it that much more special. So here is my advice for today's blog...do something fun and memorable together for someone else. It's something we still talk about and a memory we will always hold close to our heart. 

We made a special t-shirt for his dad that read "Only the best parents get promoted to grandparents". We gave it to them at the last minute..after eating and visiting. His dad opened the box and read it; then read it again and looked at us and said "Are you serious?" His mom was standing there but couldn't see the shirt. She wanted to read it. As soon as she did, she started crying. "I thought I wasn't going to have any grandchildren!" she cried. It was such a special moment. To say they were excited was an understatement. God used this special bundle to draw us closer to Him, to each other, and to family.

God is so good to me. I had a wonderful pregnancy. I worried about every little thing but He was in complete control. I am a plus size woman, so I had a couple complications, but nothing stopped a beautiful, healthy baby from being born on August 1, 2017.

Here's some pictures from our little Remy:




And here we are four and a half months into parenthood. It has been quite a ride! Do I have some stories to share with you about the newborn stage! That is not for the faint of heart! Thank you for reading!

Until next time, God is good, all the time!!
