A conversation I had with Sawyer the other day:
S: Mom are we friends with that guy in the clouds?
Me: What guy?
S: You know mom, the guy....the guy who made the trees, and stuff!
M: Do you mean God?
S: Yeah, Him, are we friends with Him?
M: Yes Sawyer, we are friends with God.

I am not a very religious person, yet I am a very spiritual person. I have faith. I believe that we are not alone in the universe, that there is a higher power that we may never understand but none the less is there. Yahweh, JehovahAllah, Tao, God. Whatever word you choose to me it all means the same thing, something bigger than you or I. Something or Someone who has your back. 

I like most people I turn to God in times of trouble, part of my journey is to teach my children to turn to him in times of triumph! I am going to succeed at this. I don't know how just yet, but I will. I cherish the fact that I know I'm friends with "that guy in the clouds" and I want my children to feel the same way.

I normally don't preach or even discuss my beliefs with the world but today I wanted to share that small tid-bit with you all. So excuse my rant of the day if it has somehow made you uncomfortable. But since this is my space to put whatever I want out into the universe today I choose to say I'm trying to be a better person in this small way. :)~


  1. I believe the same and my daughter is a nun :) Stay strong and those boys will always talk to the man in the sky because of the love you give them!

  2. I believe that "man" has a plan for all of us. Even if we chose our own path ways, he will make sure that we end up at the right place at the right time. Please know that there is a reason you and your family have troubled times, and though it may not be obvious now, good will come of this. I do love and miss you guys tons and I give virtual hugs to you all!!! -Peter 3
