One Mother Rambling Through Life

Rantings, Ravings, Strange thoughts, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a lot of ME!

Woo Hoo! Today I got some of the best news! My step father who is the light of my kiddo's lives and is a very important part of my Mother's life of course is officially in remission. This is awesome news not only because well it is always good news but also we are only 2 treatments into the round of 6. He will finish up all 6 treatments but all of the scans show no baddness! Next week his application will be put in for stem cell transplants. This is a treatment that has shown a lot of positive results! This is exciting but it will mean 3 months of him being away from us in San Antonio which will be hard but all worth it if it helps. I really give this little triumph to the power of prayer. There has been a lot of prayers sent up to the big guy asking for Carlos to be healthy again. Prayer from family, friends, co-workers, the church family, and many many many prayer trees were lit up for this one. But we are happy and relieved to say that we are seeing the light now. Never doubt the power of a well placed prayer. Gotta love things that prove this quote from Matthias accurate: "Sometimes it seems like God is difficult to find and impossibly far away. We get so caught up in our small daily duties and irritations that they become the only things that we can focus on. What we forget is that God's love and beauty are all around us, every day, if only we would take the time to look up and see them."

Okay so for the longest time I really thought that Mom's who went out to clubs or bars were a little less than cool. I am being honest. I was a little uniformed I think. With Stephen I never ever went out to clubs or went out drinking with my friends. I would have GNO weekly and we would go to dinner or make dinner and watch a movie. Simple. Fun. It was okay. But I did that weekly. After I had Mahalia I was dying to get out and do something that was not the same ole same ole thing. So I went O-U-T with the girls for my friends 21st b-day. Woot! It was a blast! I loved getting out drinking a little and dancing. (Disclaimer: I do not condone drinking and driving you should always find a DD or take a cab) So a few weeks later I went out with the girls again and man I loved it. It was not about being seen really but about seeing life and living. I love danicing with my girl friends and laughing about the interesting things that you see when you are out! What a rush! Now I am going out with my girls about once a month and at the most twice (only when there is a special occasion). So with this change I am having a blast with my girls but also getting more time with my babies and hubby. So it is a win win! Look at my fun pics in a slideshow below!
