#imENOUGH. YOU are ENOUGH.

In life we have seasons, some season we feel amazing and some we just feel down – trust me I know all about them. I have a deployed husband and three kids to care for and I sometimes, just wonder if I’m doing a good job in any of this. The society  we live in says we have to look a certain way in order to be accepted. I know i’ve looked at myself in the mirror and can pin point ton of my flaws { stretch marks, weight, chubby toes, big thighs).  I’ve learned to love myself for who I am, even with all my flaws. You know why?? because, when God created us, He made us exactly the way He planned. He designed us, before we were even in our mother’s womb – I mean how amazing is He ?? My husband and munchkins simple gestures, words, and appreciation go a long way. Somedays, I simply take a shower and youareenoughbrush my hair and my daughter saids to me ” mom you’re so beautiful”. She completely  makes my day. She doesn’t see my faults or flaws,  she just sees me with love. Just a few days ago while talking to my husband via Facebook. He asked what I was up to? I said ” Trying to get beautiful, for you when you get back”. His reply was ” It’s impossible for you to get MORE beautiful than YOU already are GIRL you’re MAXED OUT – I LOVE YOU”  Can I just say this made me cry, and appreciate the husband I have for loving me; just the way I am. It’s day like these that I appreciate and feel like ‘IM ENOUGH‘.  Military life is not an easy life, I try my best to hold down the fort while hubby is away. Try to keep the kids up to date with daddy’s pictures, and remind them that daddy loves them while still acting like mom and dad while he is gone. My kids letting me know that “mommy you’re the best” is a sign of ‘YOU ARE ENOUGH” and you must be doing something right, Polly.  If you are reading this, I want YOU to know that YOU TOO are beautiful just the way you are and YOU ARE ENOUGH and DON’T CHA FORGET THAT !! The next time you look in the mirror, don’t be afraid of what you see, for you were made in the image of God. GOD LOVES YOU.  The Mrs. single “Enough”, was written to help women see themselves with a less critical eye, and realize that they are “Enough” just the way they are.  Be sure to grab a tissue – for reals. 

 
Thank you to The Mrs. for sponsoring my post and reminding me that I’m Enough!

We finally got orders.. Were moving !!

So happy to announce that we are officially moving back to San Diego, CA. We just got news of this yesterday and I just couldn’t hold it in. This is a bittersweet time for me, because though I am super excited to be closer to my family my brother is currently in San Diego. My heart also hurts for the fact that I know what awaits us. Which is deployments, since we’ve been on shore duty (meaning he doesn’t deploy) hubs has been with us every night. I have forgotten what it’s like to not have him around. So to experice that again, not only with one child but with three now, is just so scary and my heart hurts just thinking about it. I know this is what we signed up to do, it’s just becoming more of a reality again and experienceing these feelings. The last time he was on a deployment Adry was young and though, she knew her daddy she didn’t have a close bond with him, because he was gone most of the time.

This time around we’ve added two more to the mix and by the time we get back they will be old enough to know that daddy won’t be home. I’m just asking God for strength since I know it’s not going to be easy. I am excited to go back to a city and state that we love. We were both born and raised in So Cal and our first duty station was San Diego. I’m also excited about being closer to my parents whom will be my greatest support system. We’ve prayed a lot about our ‘next’ duty station. I asked GOD to take us whenever he thought, we would keep on growing in his word and just where he thought we belonged. So I’m trusting this is where we are meant to be. We will know the official date soon so as of right now were only assuming, will move anytime from feb-April. More to come soon… 

Military spouses how do you help your little ones

You are 2 years old. Wow, where has the time went. Its so amazing to see you growing each and everyday. You bring so much joy and happiness to our hearts. You are such a loving, caring, crazy, energetic, random little kid. Daddy and I totally planned you and God granted our wish, by giving us YOU. We were in such a hard time in our lives, that it was YOU that made it better. You joined daddy and I and I am forever grateful, to GOD for giving us YOU !! 

Nick names: Papi, Ganga, bam bam, son

Favorite Foods: You are super picky with your food, you are, our little vegetarian. You love all things fruit (blueberries, strawberries, bananas, grapes), you LOVE fries.

Words you say: HI!!!, dad, sissy, brotha, mama, I go, no no no no, Dora, daddy, ah go ??, yum yum and some other random things 🙂 

Haircuts: up to this point you’ve only had 2 hair cuts so far, and the only reason we took you to get a trim was because your hair was bothering you, but we want to leave your hair as is because its just so beautiful and epic. You can choose when you want to cut it. 

Things you love: Cars, dora, big legos you are a organized little kid. You line up all your toys in a row, doenst matter what they are. You will still line them up. I think your getting into your terrible 2’s because your getting a little attitude these days. You love blowing us kisses, and if we don’t blow you a kiss back you get mad and frown your face >:( you enjoy your sissy’s company and you love to play with her. When daddy comes home from work, you run up to him and give him besitos and say “daddddd” its the cutest thing ever.

Where do we live? we currently live in Kingsville, Texas. We are stationed here with daddy for the time being, but will be moving within the next few months to who knows where? we are not sure just yet. We have been here for almost 3 years now. It’s a super small town and nothing really to do, but it’s grown on us and the fact that you and brother were born here. It has a special place in my heart.

Daddy, Sissy, Brother and I love you to the moon and back Papi. Enjoying you in the moment and making memories. 

 

Love,

Mommy
