•••These guys (plus several others) bring such joy to our lives!••• I’m thankful for my church family because just like Jesus- it often looks different than a natural family, ““Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.” But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.””
Matthew 12:47-50 NKJV There are several not pictured but this is a quick shot of the goodness of God in my life 🙌🏻 I am thankful! (PS- Lydia from @cufioncampus was in town and able to share at our Bible Study!)
I'm gonna be honest. I did not have a great week last week. I slacked up and I can't be doing that. Everybody says oh what's one little slip. I hit the scales 2 pounds heavier this morning! So...that being said, I just finished 45 minutes of cardio! This gal is back on track. Tomorrow will be day 2 at the gym for the week. Have a great day everyone!!!
So I was going to post a picture or 2 of my starting pics for my new program, as I realised I hadn't taken any.
Photos are a great way of seeing changes, even if you don't see the number on the scale move.
I went and pressed something on my phone and it started deleting all my pics. I managed to cancel it, but not before it deleted about 100.
Gutted that I've lost some pics, but I can't do anything about it as I hadn't backed them up. So I'm learning from my mistake.
So instead I'm sharing a pic that didn't get deleted and remembering some memories made over the summer break.
On our way to the airport, and missing our New Yorkers already!! Love you all, see you at Christmas! #lovemyfamily ❤️

About me, part 5
Mijn familie. Ik ben de oudste dochter van Ed & Loes, zus van Bianca & Renate, schoonzus van Paul & Marko, tante van Mara & Teun.
We zien elkaar regelmatig. Mijn ouders delen al 52 jaar lief en leed en zijn elkaars beste maatje. Het is bij ons thuis ‘Hotel de zoete inval’. Al zolang ik me kan herinneren is iedereen welkom, er is altijd eten en drinken genoeg. Een warm nest, Rotterdams arbeidersgezin. We hadden niet veel, maar zijn nooit iets tekort gekomen. Liefde was en is er voldoende, de deur staat altijd open.
Ik hou van deze mensen, zij zijn mijn wortels. ❤️

One year ago today. How has the time flown by so quickly? This time last year we were still navigating early parenthood and feeling very green. Right now we are prepping to do this all over again and we’re not even nervous. It’s crazy how much a year can change things. I’ve never experienced something like this, where you can beg for the past, present, and future all in the same sentence. I feel so very lucky to have this little family of mine. 😘 @kylefart
Flash Back! It's a love hate relationship to look at old photos... Love to remember those times but I hate that I didn't know what was coming ...
It's also hard for me to look at pics of Melon since Moose looked just like her. So it's hard not to feel like "why don't I have that now?" He should be in that costume experiencing his fist time to chuck e cheese too... .
How I wish I could have him here. I have to allow myself to feel sad, jealous, hurt and robbed of our time but just enough so I feel I can express myself...
After my little sad party I see my blessings and have to express my gratitude for what I do have in this life. .
I'm one lucky momma. I can't wait to be together again someday 💕
Многие уже знают, что у меня очень сильная связь с родителями. То есть они буквально- мои лучшие друзья. И не только из-за того, что мы родственники, а потому что у нас одни интересы, взгляды и общие мнения во многих вещах. Они мои истинные поклонники и никогда не препятствовали, куда бы меня ни заносило. И слава богу, я очень рано поняла, что в этом мире можно доверять только себе и своим родителям, точка. Больше никому. А как у вас с этим обстоят дела?
I guess all of you already know that I have very strong connection with my parents. They are literally my best friends. It’s not because we are relatives. But because we have same interests, similar opinions and point of views. They’ve been always my funs and main supporters in my very crazy decisions. I’m glad I realized very early that in this mad world you can only trust yourself and your parents. How about you?

La vida duele, eso es una certeza; el hecho de ser consciente que conforme pasan los minutos no dejas de ir muriendo poco a poco hace que la angustia esté presente inconscientemente en uno mismo.
Si, la vida duele; porque le pedimos más de lo que necesitamos.
Hasta que descubres que este es tú mundo...pequeño, simple, limitado....pero perfecto. Ellas son mi pequeño gran mundo.
La vida ya no duele tanto... Feliz Lunes....feliz vida!! #yoymiscosas#lovemyfamily#livelife#bestoftheday
