Proverbs 19:31

When Things Don’t Go The Way You Want

Today is my birthday… I can’t believe I’m 27 years old now. I wasn’t planning on anything special, to be honest I forgot it was my birthday until last Monday when my sister asked me what I was going to do on my special day. I worked half a day today and I thought about what I wanted to do later in the day and decided I wanted to have dinner at Chili’s. So I told my husband of the plans and he agreed so we got everyone ready and of to the restaurant we went.

Good Mom

Am I a Good Mom?

Unlike any other profession/career in life, no one teaches us how to be mothers, or how to be a good one at that. We seem to learn from our own mothers, those lucky enough to grow up with one, but as far as I remember, my mom didn’t give me tips or instruction on how to be a good mother. My mom is great, I love her with all my heart, and I think she did a really good job with my sister and me; we turned out okay. But there are instances where I thought she wasn’t right. There are instances where I was really scared of her and I don’t want my children to feel that way about me, ever.

Baby Chick

Baby Chicks and Brooder

This year, as a family, we have been doing things we’ve never done before, well then again we have toddlers so there’s something new everyday with them around. I think the projects we’ve done, and are in the middle of doing, are mainly because of our children. My husband built a couple of swings for them, a see-saw, an awesome bird-house, and is in the middle of building a chicken coop. Yes, we got chicks! As a side note, I’m hoping to write the instructions on these projects and how we are saving money on them.

5 Ways to Save Money

5 Tips to Save Money

As a one-income family, we are always looking for ways to save money; we have a tight budget and it’s nice to have some extra money at the end of the month. Life doesn’t always work out the way we want, and although I have a budget, we can’t always stick to it for one reason or another but we make it work month after month (we try to stay as close to the budget as possible). And thanks to God, we now have enough savings to cover us for a few months if I were to lose my job.

Make your husband happy

10 Tips To Make Your Husband Happy

I do think men need more than respect in their lives, but I think it is a crucial thing for them for a few reasons. One, they can be insecure (although they might not show it) but they do compare themselves to each other, and by showing them respect, people think better of them and that makes them feel better (and you do want people thinking your husband is the best, right?). Two, when you show respect to your husband, he will try his best to treat you right (he will be your knight in shining armor always to the rescue). Three, if you have children, this will impact their lives as well because if you respect your husband, they will see that and they will also respect him (and daddy will be their hero forever).
