About Me

My photo
I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!

A free verse... of sorts...

Oh Chocolate Bar how I love you
on this cool fall day.
while children
run shooting and flying;
creating chaos.
You, oh Chocolate Bar,
you are my pool of peace and bliss.
You are the cotton balls in my ears.
You numb the rattling of the house
and the sound of wizards at war.
You silence bickering
and discussions of Halloween costumes.
You are the provider of patience,
the reward I seek.
With your smooth milky texture
on my tongue
I close my eyes and smile.
There is no smell of dirty diapers in the air,
no sink full of dirty dishes before me.
Thank you Chocolate bar,
giver of warm and happy feelings.
Thank you
