October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Thanks to my good friend Jeannene for bringing this to my attention!
This is a Breast Cancer Awareness Wreath. Isn't it beautiful?? Please remember the women who have survived and the women who have lost their battles to Breast Cancer in October and every day. Don't forget to do routine self examinations to prevent this from happening to you.

If you have someone close to you who is a survivor, or one who may not have been so lucky, please leave me a comment, with your story, and I will be thinking and praying for these people!

I know Breast Cancer has affected so many people. My Grandmother (whom I never got the pleasure of meeting) passed away from Breast Cancer when my mother was 11. My Aunt is a survivor as are many friends. I pray for them daily.

There is a book that I HIGHLY recommend that I read at this time last year about "the personal stories of four women 'too young' for breast cancer." It will move you to tears and laughter, but most of all it will change your views on this disease. It is WAY too close to home. It's called "Nordie's at Noon," and it's about the personal stories of four women "too young" for Breast Cancer. It will move you to laughter and it will move you to tears, but most of all, it will change your views on this disease and just MOVE you. Please read it, you will NOT be disappointed.

Please don't forget to think about and pray for all the people affected by this disease. God Bless!

I had my first test last night for my Child Development class. I think I did pretty well, but I also think I overstudied and stressed just a little too much. I took several practice tests on the publisher's website all throughout the week and didn't do too well on those, so I wasn't sure how the test would go. I was going to make a post yesterday and have people pray and/or think of me while I was in class, but I didn't want to overdo it. I am anxious to find out if I did well or not.

Inspiring quote for the day....

Parenting magazines are perfect for those times when you're not feeling inadequate enough on your own.

Isn't this the truth? I feel inadequate on a daily basis. My mom (bless her heart) buys me Parents magazine subscription every year. Nice and all, but COME ON! First of all (I'll get this one out of the way) Who the heck is a size one after having three kids?? I mean, I know these people exist and all, but show some real life moms in these magazines rather than Super-Model-Pretend-To-Be-Moms!! OK?? And, seriously, let's get some ideas from these magazines that actually work! OH, and I guess my child is slow if they haven't hit the milestone mark that PARENTS magazine has set at the age given, huh? Well, the problem with these magazines are...EVERY child is different. Every one. I have three and each has their own personality, quirks and looks! And you know what? I Thank The Lord for giving me three amazing children, each one unique in their own way. I love each and every one of them, even the slow one (lol! Just teasing!)
