I Wasn't Made to Be a Mother

I Wasn't Made to Be a Mother

Yes, it's true, I wasn't made to be a mother. Do I believe I will be a mother? Yes. Do I believe God has called me to motherhood? Yes. But is it my purpose for living? No. Absolutely not.

Several months ago, I received an email from a friend whose daughter was having infertility issues of her own. She learned that she could not have children and was looking into other ways of becoming a mom.

It's Moving Day

Here is a joint post from me and some thoughts from Josh. Enjoy:)

Our Move

Aly: Our moving day was crazy for us. Yes, it was crazy with the moving van and getting all the last minute stuff out of our house, but our emotions were even more crazy.

I saw Josh that day around lunch time and he was a wreck. He literally couldn't get a word out of his mouth without crying. He kept apologizing to me and telling me he was okay but has just been an emotional wreck.

Josh: I don't struggle with attachment to houses. This wasn't a house though.

Moving On- Peace When Circumstances Don't Match Up

Moving On

Well, as many of you know at this point, we have moved! And yes, 
it feels like we just moved in. Literally.

If you remember, when I was diagnosed, we were in the middle of building our house.
 We built this house as a home that we knew we would sell in a couple of years as 
real estate. Yes, it's not the most fun to build a house, live in it for 2 years and sell it, but that is what we have chosen to do!

This was us on our final day at the house. Sweaty, tired, and wishing it wasn't 100 degrees outside.
