I'm gettin' back on the wagon!

It's been too long my friends, and just yesterday I realized how much I miss my blog!

So I'm back, with a new name, a new attittude and a new agenda! Let's see how this works out for me! ;)

You may be asking, "why the new name"? Well, I realized recently that striving to be a "Supermom" is really not all its cracked up to be. Let's face it, the only super powers I'm going to get my hands on is the power of prayer....I realize that NOTHING good that comes from me has anything to do with me, but with Him, and I'm ok with that!

Thus the new name...

Now I know, I know....Finding Joy in the Journey, it's cliche, right? I think so too. But honestly, it's where I am right now. As some of you know, my five year old daughter was diagnose with ALL (a form of leukemia) in May of this year. Our journey has been tough and down right terrifying at times. However, I have found that the more I fight this journey, the harder it is. So I've decided to spend the rest of this time finding the joy. Somedays it's the little things and I actually have to scan my brain at the end of the day to find the one good thing that I can. On other days, they are right there for the world to see and I can't wait to share them all with you!

I will say, I've made a decision that this blog with NOT be about the medical dealings of my child's illness. I do have a blog that records her journey on If you are interested in following us there, then please send me your email address and I will make sure you get an invite.

At the risk of sounding selfish, this blog is for me. So much of our time right now is spent on taking care of my daughter and the rest of our family I've lost myself. I need to remember who I am, where I come from, what I stand for and where I am headed. What better way to do that then to type it out for the world to see?!

So, I hope that you enjoy coming here and seeing me for all my faults and follies, all my crazy thoughts and ramblings, and all of my excessive use at punctuation! I know I will!


  1. Welcome back! I'm glad you decided to use this as your escape...the little piece of you where you can just be you. You deserve it! Love you!

  3. I'm glad you are back. I will enjoy checking in occasionally to see what you are reading and how you are doing. Kudos for not "losing yourself" in the midst of this ongoing trial.
