2 months later

I somehow ended up in my blogger dashboard tonight.

It had been awhile.

When I wrote my last post I had every intention of picking up writing again, but life, illness and migraines soon had other ideas.

So here I sit trying to decide whether I should share individually, the posts I have been writing in my head, combine them all in one, or maybe just ramble tonight.

Because something led me here....

In 48 hours my safety net is being taken down.

We will officially be stepping into the darkness.

We didn't think it would be easy, but we definitely didn't think it would be this hard.

On another note, I am being absolutely blessed by spending all day, every day with my husband.
When he does go back to work I am going to be so lost.

I do not like rain as much I as I did when I was younger, (but that is a whole other blog post.)

Getting passports, (at least here,) has been the biggest pain in the butt. My Aunt better be so grateful when we have them in hand, (and better yet, use them!!!) ;)

Every one I know seems to be moving, going to school, or pregnant.

I am not one of those.
But many kudos to the people who are all three.

I like tulips a little more than I use to.

Even though this post turned into a random pointless mess, I feel a million times better after writing it.

And with that, I will leave you with a photo of tulips and thank those of you who are genuinely praying for our future.

Good night all!

Silence and Social Media

My name is Marcella.
I am still "currently" a Marine wife, a mother of two, and without a home.
I feel like I need to introduce myself again because I practically don't even know who I am anymore.

I used to feel bad when I didn't read everyone's blog posts the day they wrote them.
        I then had to accept I couldn't.

I used to feel bad when I didn't like everyone's posts or pictures on facebook within an hour.
        I then I accepted I couldn't.

I used to let people's ignorant ways and bad attitudes get to me every time I logged on.
       And then I just fell silent and let it eat away at me for too long.

No More.

I am on blogger so I can share my thoughts and feelings. {Maybe find an unexpected friend or two.}

I am on facebook so that loved ones who are far away can watch my children grow and I can watch their lives unfold.

Nothing More.

To tell you the truth, a big part of me misses reading blogs on a daily basis, but spending time adjusting to a new area and quality time with my husband and children are so much more important to me.
I just want to be able to write and share, without feeling guilty that I haven't been caught up on blogs since last fall.....

I will not feel bad for standing up for what I believe in.
I will not be shy about sharing my faith in Jesus Christ.
I will not let the influence of the world try to say my beliefs are ignorant.
I will do my absolute best to protect my babies, that God placed in my care, here on earth.
I will continue to share how hard it is to transition from a Marine Corps family to a civilian one without feeling like my readers are telling me to "just get over it."

If you made it to the end, you are awesome and you get to see pictures! ;)
