I have been putting off turning on my computer for a few weeks now. I don’t know why I thought not working would change anything. I know I can’t change anything, there is literally nothing I can do to change what is happening. But You can change it God, You have the power, and I will bug You every second of the day until my prayers are answered.
As You know my mother’s breast cancer has returned and it is all over now, lungs, bones, liver to name a few. We found out it had returned late in November, and she started chemo in pill form. I had hoped that would be the end of this cancer story. But for some reason You didn’t hear all of our prayers. And believe me there have been a lot of prayers! There have been people praying for my mother who have never met either of us.
We found out this week that not only did the chemo not help, but also that her cancer had spread more since November. I know we have to stay strong and believe and I am really trying my best. I won’t let myself think of what if… I won’t let myself go there. I don’t cry in front of my parents, or brothers, that is saved just for my husband. I will thank You God for giving me the most amazing family and friends. Without I don’t think we could have gone through all this. I will thank You for every moment I have with everyone in my life. I believe You have a plan, I know You have a plan, You must have a plan right?
Thank You for giving me the strength to explain to my 7-year-old that grandma’s cancer is back. He was only 5 the first time and he remembers. He remembers grandma’s hair fell out, he remembers when we couldn’t go to grandma’s because he had a cold. He remembers all the doctors appointments I took her to. He remembers because it was less than two years ago.
I put off telling him as long as I could. Unfortunately I had to tell him because the new chemo will most likely make her hair fall out again. He has been praying to You, did you hear his prayers? He said he wasn’t done yet having fun with grandma, and that the medicine better work this time. If you can’t answer my prayers can you answer his?
I knew the cancer was bad, cancer is never good but for some reason this week has been especially hard. We all thought our prayers were working, so to find out that it had gotten worse was pretty shitty to be honest. I want to scream, I want to yell, but to who? Who can I be mad at? I called some poor kid at the bagel shop an idiot this week (I would normally never do this) please forgive me, as You know it wasn’t his fault. I sat on the couch all day in my pajamas on Tuesday, and only changed because I didn’t to pick my son up from school in pajamas.
I won’t question You, because I believe and I have faith. At the end of the day that is all I can hold on to. My faith in You. My faith that You will help heal my mother, my faith that You will answer our prayers.
Please bless my family, Lauren (both of them) Chris, Joy, Chelsea, Debbie, Linda, Robyn, Elisa, Renee’ (and her parents) my in-laws, Melinda (and her mother) Molly, Ashli, Jeanette, Kedra, Tejya, Paula, and every other person who is praying for my mother. Bless them for thinking of her, and please listen to their prayers.
All my love,
It is that time of year again! Finally! Whole Foods is having the 3-Day Whole Body Sale which includes 25% off thousands products, including vitamins, fish oli, herbs, homeopathic medicine supplements, proteins, meal enhancers, superfoods (my hubby’s favorite) chia & flax seeds and much, more!
It is no secret we love supplements in our family, our son has been using the ones we purchase from Whole Foods for years! That is why this sale is so awesome! My son does not like anything with meat, and let’s be honest what kid really loves fresh vegetables? If your child does, I am happy for you because I couldn’t get my son to eat one to save my life! We realized that instead of the night-time argument over eating his dinner we would just purchase supplements. It has been a lifesaver, meal time is much happier and we know he is getting all the things a little boy needs! A one-month supply for my son’s is usually $29.99, the 25% off is great savings, and reason to stock up. Wondering what supplements could help your child? Whole Foods has a full list of them that may be found here.
The 3-day sale also includes cleanse and detox kits, it is the new year, if you need to detox pick up one of the many items at Whole Foods with amazing savings. Not sure what would work best for you? Whole Foods has the most incredible people who can help you with any and I really do men any question you may have. They also have a list for nutritional support for men and women, and women who are expecting.

Renaissance Sports Club & Hotel is located in Aliso Viejo and is beautiful! As soon as you pull into the driveway there is a gorgeous water fountain that is two stories high! From there you drive down to the entrance where you are greeted by the valet parking attendants. Then you are welcomed into the colorful and fun reception area.
When we visited it was Christmas time and everything was beautifully decorated with silver and white decorations. We were invited to Breakfast with Santa, and the kids loved it! The food was delicious, pancakes, eggs, bacon, hot and cold cereal, yummy pastries and Starbucks coffee for the parents! It was perfect there wasn’t a long line to see Santa, the kids just walked right up and were able to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. There were also fun activity booklets given to the children and crayons on the tables for the children to play with.
Renaissance also has a wonderful Kids World for children ages six weeks to 12 years old. If you are a Club Sports member you receive three-hours of free childcare in Kids World, if you are staying at the hotel there is a small fee. Kids World isn’t just a place to drop your kid off while you work-out it is a fun place for kids to explore, learn and play! We are excited for the upcoming events being held at Renaissance Sports Club & Hotel and I know you will be too!

All of us stay at home mom’s have been asked this time and time again.
So, what do you do for a living?
I’m a stay at home mom.
How many kids do you have?
Just my son.
O, really? What do you do with yourself?
Generally when you have just met someone the polite thing to do is say well I also (fill in the blank, for me it is blogging) but what you really want to do is to tell them to go to you know what! I know that sounds harsh, but I have chosen to stay at home. It is not that I can not work or even don’t want to work it is that my son needs me more. I understand a lot of families cannot afford for a parent to stay at home full-time, but mine can and no, I do not miss working. I do not miss getting up at 5 a.m. to leave at 6 a.m. just to miss the traffic. I do not miss being stressed out at night thinking “did I send that e-mail, or when was the deadline?” I also hate the question don’t you miss the adult interaction? I do not really understand this question. I am an adult, my husband is an adult, our friends are all adults and I interact with them daily. But I will answer it anyway… No, I don’t miss the bitch of a boss I used to have, the bitchy co-workers, and of course the office politics. I do not miss being nice to someone I despise because they have stolen my ideas time and time again!
My favorite line from working moms is… If I could stay at home, my house would be so clean, the laundry would be done, I’d go to the gym everyday, make dinner every night and everything would be perfect. Guess what that is pretty much my life, my house is clean, my laundry is always done and my life is NOT perfect. There is no perfect life, stay-at-home mom or working moms because there is no perfect world! At the end of the day we are all the same, we are all moms! We all want what is best for our children, for me that is being a stay-at-home mom, and for others it isn’t. Just because I am a stay at home mom my life is not any less important than a working mom, regardless of how much money she makes.
Next time someone says they are a stay at home mom, please don’t respond with… what do you do all day? Because that stay at home mom regardless of how sweet she may be is not thinking nice thoughts about you.
