Hubster Brag

May I brag about this hottie. Mkay I will. This man and I will be married for 15 years come this November. I do not believe I have ever loved him this fiercely like I do today.  In fact if you gave me a glance of what we would look like this day even last year. I would call you a lier.  This last year has been tough tough as nails, for us. We took our faith to the mattress. From the Godfather people, get your minds out of the gutter. Needless to say its been.  This man has broken through dark areas in his own faith walk and has come in full 360 strides to being the man I know he is to be.  This last few months has brought us even closer and I am am so thankful for him. He has won major with me, here is why....
1. He sent me to College. Its been a dream for a while, He pushed me out the door and said "go get em!"
2. He took up the laundry in our house...Yes Mam. He conquered..
3. He worked a full days job and came home and put on his dad hat without haste. He was ready to go.
4. He never judged me after spending and entire day making grub for 450 hungry school children and not wanting to come home to make dinner again. He said "make anything or I will pick up a pizza. no sweet"
5. When I cried about not being able to do this, He said" Yes you can, Yes you can!"
6. He loved me fiercely back. Kind eyes, sweet spirit. Tender.
7. He prayed for me, He anointed our home weekly.
8. He made me snacks to my side when my face was in a book.
9. He was patient
    Chief has been feeling a calling to the men of adopted families. He says there is so much encourgement available to women. Then men need to rise up and come together and be encouraged and there needs to be a place for this. Being the good wife :) I said "Do something!" He did Chief started a facebook group that is 227 strong men. Men that Love adoption, Men that take James 1:27 seriously and want to take a stand for the fatherless. Its a place for dads of adopted families to share encouragement and challenges they have as fathers that lead their families in a way that is honoring to Christ. He calls it FightClub 127. If your hubbies are interested look him up, it private and there is a screening.  BUT they are awesome guys there.
     So, yeah I am proud of him, I adore him and I am blessed BIG TIME! :)

Why hello there!

I break this social fast to bring you some updates on the Tribe. I have taken a sabbatical from blogging. Many reasons, the first would be time. It takes time to sit and blog. Time was something that this season left me very short of.  In January I started my first semester of College. I also accepted a part time job working 20 hours a week during the kids school days. I worked came home, helped kids with homework, prepared dinner *MAYBE* then dashed to school two nights a week and a full day on Friday.  So, I was NOT home, leaving behind a big mess that my Mr.Chief putt his super dad hat and took on more responsibility that he ever had to. It was a much different life than this mama is accustomed to. For almost 10 years give or take a few mini side jobs I was a stay at home mom, was full time devoted to my families needs and wants and schedules and helped at kids schools and made cute teacher gifts, and had dinners planned and things were just harmonious when I was at home. sorta. 

Cut to this year where going to school became a reality but so did needing to work. This week was my last week of school and I am a walking zombie. My body hurts, my head hurts. my lesson learned. I learned that I can not give 100% to all responsibilities I was participating in. I would give more to one and the other would suffer.  The last thing I want is to gamble on my family.  This is the most important thing in my life. I learned that I may not repeat this again. I CAN.NOT.DO.IT.
  SO next year will look different.

      I will come back soon. maybe.
