Today Josiah turned seven years old! I have a second grader now…where did the time go? It doesn’t feel like it was already seven years ago when I was blessed with one of my best friends, Josiah Cristian. I rememeber not being able to sleep for the first few months because I would wake up and want to stare at him all night. His existence changed so many parts of my life, he made me want to be the best mom I could be, and I wanted to show God how much I appreciated his wonderful gift. I want Josiah to use his good heart to be the very best version of himself. I hope he gets all the best parts of his dad and me. I hope he doesn’t make a lot of the same mistakes his dad and I made, but I’ll be there to give him good advice, listen to him, never judge him, and love him unconditionally. Happy birthday baby boy. You may not be a baby still, but you will always be my first baby. I love you Josiah.
“Blowing out somebody else’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any brighter.” I don’t remember who said this, but I heard it from my sixth grade Quest teacher (a half hour life class for students to talk about feelings, I didn’t share much, but paid close attention). I’ve never been the kind of person to judge or make fun of someone, when I know I am not perfect. I’m not surprised, but always amazed at the people who think they will look better, more interesting, or draw attention by talking down about other people. I can never understand those that would spend so much energy putting others down. Some say people do it because jealousy, insecurity, peer pressure, bored, immature, or other reasons. Why do you think they do it? If you do it, why? Next time you hear someone talking mean about someone, don’t join in or laugh and encourage it. If you are the person doing it, stop, close your mouth, and focus on yourself;)
It’s never too late to head in the right direction. It’s better late than never.
Hi, I’m Bianca (If you want the whole spill check out the “About” page)!! Nice to meet you. I am always changing my webpage, so I’m trying the blog route. I mainly like to keep a webpage because when I first moved to this area, after I had my kids, it was like a treasure hunt trying to find activites to do around here. I have found some pretty cool places through my own searching, and from joining MOMS Club, and from word of mouth. I just want to pass on the information to anyone else that might be new to the area, a new mom, or just looking for something fun to do with the family. If my site helps even one person, mission accomplished. Please let me know about activities or ideas that I haven’t already included on my site. Even if you’re not a local, you can find similar activities in your area (if you ask, I’ll help you find some). Other things you might find on my blog include but not limited to family pics and updates, occasionally easy recipes (if I can do it, it has got to be easy…I loathe cooking), kid party ideas, business shout outs, advice, questions, good deals, reviews on products, and just whatever else is on my brain at that moment:P
