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…

How did you name your Blog ?

My blog originally started out as Home with Vicky because I spend so much time at home and consider myself at the present a full-time home maker. I struggled with this and didn’t feel as if it had a click on me title that viewers would care to read or view. So I gave it a lot of thought over the next few days and started to reconsider my title for a lot of different reasons. My husband and I have been married for seventeen months and as my husband and I were laying in bed one night I was talking with him about “What should I name my blog”. I would really appreciate your help on this one as we lied in bed thinking away and grasping at different ideas since I really wanted my blog to be about all different kinds of circumstances that we may go through in life or what we’ve been through in life and how far we’ve come.  We have both been through so much and have come so far. ( I’ll get to that at another time since I have so much I hope to write about for my viewers.) So my husband said to me “what do you think about Humble Beginnings”? I said”Oh I like that”since we are new in our marriage and sharing a life together and it caused me to stop and think about how I’ve learned to be humble and what it really means to me and about how to humble yourself. I mean I never even really considered even feeling humbled until I met the love of my life and how much it changed my life and for the first time in my life i was able to say “I am happy”. So as of this night the name of my blog was to be Humble Beginnings. I hope to write about life, love, marriage, being a stay at home wife at the present time. All the things us woman do at home and in our home, food we love to eat together,  food we don’t, what goes on in my everyday life how I am learning to create a humble life together with my husband. What I love to do, what I don’t, my faith in God and how I’m enjoying the Grace of God in my life and easier ways for us woman to do everything we normally do in life and more. So I hope all the bloggers out there get some enjoyment out of reading and viewing my blog and if it makes one persons day a little better and brighter than I can say I’m doing something wonderful ! And I would absolutely love hearing from other bloggers about how you came to name your blog so please let me know and I’m sure others would love to know also……….
