It has been a long time since I've posted but something major happened in my life that made it impossible for me to keep up with everything.  My mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January.  It has been a scary journey.  My mom was blessed to have the tumor in an operable place with hope of some years left.  Surgery was very complicated but my mom came thru super well and has fully recovered from it.  She is now in her second month of chemo and has a hard time keeping weight on.  I don't know why this has happened in our family but am trusting God to see us thru.  The hardest part for me is seeing my son have to be in the middle of this, as we live with my mom.  
While this has been going on, things at work have been super stressful because of budget issues.  I have a new contract for next year but I will no longer be 100%, instead I will be 80%.  I don't know how I will make up the loss as of yet.  There have been a few teachers who haven't gotten a contract next year and a few with bigger cuts then me.  It will be a completely different environment next year.  Praying that our school can recover from this and grow in the coming years.
While this has been going on, I am so thankful for my family and friends who have helped out in so many ways.  
Thank you to all of you!!  


  1. I'm so sorry to hear what your family is going through. It's probably a blessing to mom to have her daughter and grandson living with her during this challenging time, so treasure every moment with her and all the opportunities to show her your love.

    Good luck to you - I'll keep your family in my thoughts.

  2. God is in full control over everything and I have faith knowing He will bring us out of all these changes stronger than before <3

  3. Sending healing wishes to your Mom and positive energy to you as you face the new challenges at school. Hang in there, God always walks along side you!
