Lunchtime. 
Sweet baby Apple was sound asleep and my two "big" kids were eating at the table. I was sitting between them and after a few moments Ainsleigh creeped over and climbed up on my lap. She was facing towards me and grabbed my cheeks, looked me straight in the eyes and smiled....over and over again in between kisses on my cheeks. 

Something about the way the sun was shining behind her, something about those sweet dimples that she has.

Something about the way her tiny fingers were stroking my hair and clinging to me.
Something about the way she clenches on when she thinks I am about to get up.
She, too, wants it to last.

I desperately wanted to jump up and grab my camera but I didn't. I held her tight. Soaked it in. And am doing the best job that I can right now to repaint it as a memory.

The weather here in Texas is changing. 
I love the fall. I love the chiminea burning on the back porch. 
and the leaves that are beginning to fall. 
it nudges at my soul.  

Today I was thinking.
Recently I had to take a personality test for some "work" related things. We wanted to see where we fit best on our team and what roles we could easily be in. There were so many things about the test that were so eye opening for me to read and see written out on paper.

Something that really struck me though was what my results said about me as a mother.

*help their children become who they really are
*support their children's creativity and originality 
*are good at helping their children get in touch with their feelings

I have no idea if my kids would actually say these things about me or if someday these are ways that they would talk about me as a mother...but I sure hope so.

I desperately want to embrace my babies as individuals...I want to help each one in their own way figure out their purpose, their passions and foster that.

I want them to feel deeply, and learn that it's okay. I want them to learn to express that.

Motherhood for me is such a joy. 
A "life giver". 
I can hardly believe it's going as fast as it is.

I just hope that I can help my babies find their life purpose...and help them make it happen.

  3. Cara, I found you not long ago on Instagram from Brickyard Buffalo I believe. Love following along now! Your family is beautiful. <3

    And Case, you are one of my very best friends. I don't have to talk to you non-stop to continue to be inspired by you, and when I need an extra prayer or boost of confidence, you never shy away from helping me. I love that I can text you in the middle of the day as a frazzled mess and you can respond in the most calm, loving way. Adore you, sis. <3

  7. Me and my husband have been trying for a baby for over three years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 8 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com I copied the email and I sent him a mail he replied me and I told me all my sorrow is over, but after three years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done, he then told me that I should wipe my tears with such comforting words he told me to buy some items that his going to use to cast the pregnancy spell I did and he made the spell for me and told me when next I meet with my husband I we conceive,at first I thought it was a scam but I just followed my inner mind and I sent the money for him to buy all the items after some months I went to check with my doctor and I was 4weeks pregnant, thanks to Dr Dahiru spell temple,I want to use this medium to tell everyone having similar problem. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,
