Going from writer-homemaker……. ??

Yes I have these thoughts a lot. I can be sitting alone at home and all different kinds of things start to go through my mind about all the things I can write about. Yet when it comes time it always seems I’m at a loss of words for what to say. I reflect on all the things I’ve journalled about over the years and all the times I wrote about growing up during my childhood and what it taught me, how far I’ve come in life and how strong I’ve become as an individual. As I have told my viewers I enjoy writing and expressing myself yet I often wonder will others get the enjoyment out of reading it as I do writing it. Will they want to hear about me growing up in a n alcohol infested environment and home and that being the reason for my parents divorce. Yes I question myself all the time yet I continue to write. I want this to be a priority in my life in finding my niche in life.

My employment out of the home is limited due to having COPD and having a lot of breathing problems. With that comes you can not over exert yourself , walk, run, or lift a lot so I finally decided that my best work can and would be done sitting down. I am not a high school graduate, I have had some college so am I worthy of ever having a stay at home career as a writer – blogger. Yes I believe I am. I don’t want to sit here and feel as if I’m writing about the same things everyday. I just want my viewers and readers to know I am working daily to research and learn about things that you will want to know about and also write about my life and the doings that go on everyday that can and will inspire you. I read so much writing I love and enjoy that inspires me. After all I’ve read from so many passionate bloggers blogs that is why I made the decision to start one of my own. One day I thought mmmm I really do have a lot I could say.

Even though my husband and I are going through a really hard time on our marriage because we are preparing as we speak to down-size tremendously I know in our future it will become a divine life lesson that made our marriage and our relationship stronger. My husband is so supportive of me in everything I do. As of right now in starting my blog I am a home maker and I want to be able to say to everyone one day I am a writer, maybe I should start telling myself I am a writer that would be a good start !

I myself believe that if you read an article on a blog you should leave a comment on feedback, what you thought of the article or what you would like to see in the future. I almost always make it a point to comment on what ever it may be I read to give the writer some type of feedback or praise or even let them know what I would like to see on their blog in the future. It makes my day to get on this computer and just consume information and write about what I think, know or for see for the future. In this article I believe you could say I’m writing about writing. I don’t know what it will be perceived as but take it for what you wish and feel free to leave feedback or comments in the comment section. Thank you so much for stopping by and reading.

WHY I WRITE …………..

That is one of the biggest reasons I started my own blog is because I JUST WANT TO WRITE. I have always enjoyed keeping a journal and my husband has always told me that he thinks I write and do so well in putting things into words, so this is a way I thought I could express myself in writing about my family, where my husband and I grew up, and how married life has made me so happy and whole (were in our second year of marriage.)

Writing is more like a meditation to me because I get so much enjoyment out of it and with me being a stay at home wife I really would like for my time here to count for others so in doing so I hope to inspire others to say the least. I find and get so much pleasure out of the blogs I follow-up on that I hope to inspire others with what I write. I will also be writing about my life in our home and the kind of things I love and enjoy doing that get me through the day. Some days are more stressful than others as I’m sure that happens with everyone.

I have lived in Kentucky (the bluegrass state ) my whole life and now I’m living closer to Ten. We live in a small town now and I’m finding that I like that a lot better than living in the inner city fast life. I believe my husband and I came to a time in our lives when we just wanted to live peacefully and relax, as I said this is where I  find peace in writing and I love it here this is where I married my husband.  I chose to start my blog not to long ago after reading so many I enjoyed, thought that I could bring happiness to others when there reading mine. I find happiness in reading others and knowing and being able to read  about what goes on in other’s everyday lives. I absolutely enjoy it everyday !

I’m trying to keep up with this and make it a priority and commit to it. I’ve noticed I’ve read here and there that several blogs have disappeared along the way. I will also tell you that there are several things I’m looking into and will enjoy reading about since we are in our second year of marriage so I will always be looking for ways to save money. (couponing, budgeting, recipes, prayer, faith,marriage, writing, reading, etc.

 

So I hope you will enjoy my journey with me along the way and I wanted to inform others and hopefully inspire them in WHY I WRITE ! GOD BLESS !

 

 

MARRIAGE : THE FIRST YEAR

MARRIAGE : THE FIRST YEAR

OUR FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE HAS BEEN HARD ON BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I. I QUESTION MYSELF A LOT ABOUT HIS OPINIONS OF ME AND I AM ALWAYS QUESTIONING MYSELF WITH THAT : AM I A GOOD ENOUGH WIFE TO HIM ? WE HAVE MANAGE TO SURVIVE ON A VERY SLIM INCOME , WE ARE LEARNING AS WE GO. I BELIEVE THAT BECOMES  A PART OF YOUR MARRIAGE WHEN YOU AGREE TO SAY ” I DO “. 

MY HUSBAND IS THE PRIMARY INCOME IN OUR MARRIAGE AND HAS BEEN SINCE WE MARRIED ON OCTOBER 31, 2012. IN THE AREA WE LIVE IN THE BOTTOM OF KENTUCKY THERE IS HARDLY ANY EMPLOYMENT SO IF YOU FIND A JOB HERE YOU BEST KEEP IT. THAT’S THE ATTITUDE THE POPULATION AROUND HERE HAS TO HAVE.

I AM A STAY AT HOME WIFE, I ENJOY BEING A STAY AT HOME WIFE EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT MAKES IT HARDER ON MY HUSBAND, HE SEEMS TO BE CONTENT WITH IT. IT’S KIND OF HARD TO LIVE ON A BUDGET WHEN THERE’S HARDLY MUCH OF A BUDGET TO LIVE ON IN THE FIRST PLACE,  AND NO I AM NOT COMPLAINING I LOVE THE LIFE I  LIVE WITH MY HUSBAND. SO THANKS TO A POST I READ IN ( TRUE STORIES OF A MIDWEST YANKEE blog I WOULD NOT BE BLOGGING THIS SINCE MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED OUR GROCERIES HAVE BEEN BOUGHT WITH SNAP BENEFITS OR WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD GROCERIES.  MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH GREW UP LESS FORTUNATE OR AS WE LIKE TO SAY JUST PLAIN POOR SO WE HAD LEARNED TO ADJUST TO A LOT LONG BEFORE WE WERE EVER MARRIED.

I COME FROM A DIVORCED FAMILY, MY HUSBAND DOES NOT. THAT MAY BE THE REASON I DIDN’T MARRY UNTIL I WAS 48 YEARS OLD BECAUSE I KNEW AND ALWAYS TOLD MYSELF THAT WHEN I DID IT WOULD BE FOREVER. ALL THAT MATTERED TO ME WAS THAT I FOUND THE MAN OF MY DREAMS AND WAS TRULY IN LOVE AND I WANTED TO BE HIS WIFE HE ASK AND I SAID YES, SO WE MARRIED IMMEDIATELY. SO YES YOU CAN SAY WE TOLD OURSELVES WE’LL FIGURE IT OUT AS WE GO.

MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE MADE IT A PRACTICE IN OUR HOME TO ALWAYS TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING OR AGREE TO DISAGREE. EAT DINNER AT THE TABLE AND PRAY, NEVER GO TO BED ANGRY OR UPSET, ETC. OUR WORDS TO LIVE BY !  THE BEHAVIOR  I DIDN’T SEE ENCOURAGED IN THE HOME I GREW UP IN SOME OF MY LIFE. SEE SOME THINGS I AM GOOD AT KNOWING SOME NOT. I TELL HIM “WE DON’T HAVE ARGUMENTS” WE HAVE DISAGREEMENTS.

IT HAS NOT BEEN EASY AND I’M SURE IT WILL NOT CONTINUE TO BE EASY FINANCIALLY , BUT THE ONE THING I DO KNOW IS THAT MY HUSBAND AND I ARE BOUND AND DETERMINED TO MAKE THIS MARRIAGE WORK BECAUSE WE LOVE EACH OTHER AND THAT IS THE DECISION YOU MAKE WHEN YOU DECIDE TO GET MARRIED IS TO BUILD A PARTNERSHIP TOGETHER NO MATTER WHAT THE COST SO YES IT IS A SACRIFICE AT TIMES BUT WELL WORTH IT JUST KNOWING I HAVE SOMEONE IN MY LIFE TO STAND BEHIND ME AND BE HERE FOR ME ALWAYS

SO I MUST SAY THAT MY POINT TO THIS ARTICLE IS THAT NO THE FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE IS NOT EASY THAT’S THE SACRIFICE WE MAKE IN THE NAME OF LOVE. THERE REALLY IS A LOT THAT COMES WITH IT, WE SURE DID NOT HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT AND WERE LEARNING AS WE GO HAVING A GREAT TIME DOING IT.

LIFE IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE EVERYDAY EVERYWHERE THAT IS WHY I AM SO GRATEFUL AND THANKFUL THAT IT WAS IN GOD’S PLAN FOR ME TO HAVE A HUSBAND IN MY LIFE THAT LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY (and mine really does ) THAT’S PRICE LESS. I KNOW THAT EVERYDAY WHEN I LOOK AT MY HUSBAND AND HE LOOKS AT ME LEARNING AND KNOWING EACH OTHER DAILY AND YES WE ARE MARRIED FOR OUR LIFETIME HERE ON EARTH AND LOOK FORWARD TO MANY MORE YEARS TOGETHER !

WE SURVIVED OUR FIRST YEAR, LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER !

 

To the Woman Behind Me in Line at the Grocery Store

SUCH A TOUCHING STORY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ! A MUST READ !

Sunshine & Daisies

Dear woman behind me in line at the grocery store,

You don’t know me. You have no clue what my life has been like since October 1, 2013. You have no clue that my family has gone through the wringer. You have no clue that we have faced unbelievable hardship. You have no clue we have been humiliated, humbled, destitute.
You have no clue I have cried more days than not; that I fight against bitterness taking control of my heart. You have no clue that my husband’s pride was shattered. You have no clue my kids have had the worries of an adult on their shoulders. You have no clue their innocence was snatched from them for no good reason. You know none of this.

What you do know is I tried to buy my kids some food and that the EBT machine was down so I couldn’t buy…

Giving myself a second chance with the classics

I am a dedicated reader, I have always enjoyed these type of books…..

bronwyn's corner

I was the little girl with her nose in a book.

There were girls with Barbies, girls with ponies, girls with sparkly pens and girls with sticker collections. But I was the girl with a book. My mom says I started reading just shy of my third birthday, and some of my most cherished childhood friends were creations of the fantastic world of fiction.

No one was more surprised than me, then, to discover that I did not enjoy English literature at school. Thinking perhaps high school lackluster lessons were to blame, I signed up for English Lit in my first year at college. I lasted one semester, and called it quits.

This raised confusing questions. If I loved reading books, why did I not love the literature that was supposed to be the “best” the English language had to offer? Why, when I heard something described as a “classic”, did…
