When your son brings in a flower for you and puts it into a glass for you to enjoy, you recognize the amazing little (not so little) person that you created! #luckymama#thereisa humaninthisteenager #mamawinsoverhormones
As far back into my childhood as I can remember, I had a performance smile. You know the one where you smile, so everyone around you thinks you're having a good time? As a very small child I was afraid I'd be beaten to death, and my siblings would find my corpse. That's very morbid for a little girl. Those thoughts crossed over into contemplating dying, knowing there was something in the bathroom to end it. Since I didn't want to risk the possibility of waking up undead, I decided against it. As a fifth grader in a new state I wanted it over, because it wasn't getting any better. I stuck around because I was the oldest and the strongest; meaning my siblings couldn't take the beatings as well as I could. By the time I was in high school my goal changed. I refused to die, and that's when a battle with homicide started. My goals in high school became graduate, and do it without killing anyone or letting them kill me. Yes!!! I achieved those goals in an place where documentaries have been written about the high homicide rates. God is faithful to those who honor life. Live! Choose life. #Milwaukee#chooselife#weightlossjourney#overcomer#undead#theLandofthefree#thereisa#timesofrefreshing#weightlossjourney#healingoverhaul#FlashbackFriday#FBF#forgiveness#healing#theothersideoflife
I don't have a 5th grade picture, but that house is in a lot of my dreams. 8th & Ring #8th &Ring #everyweight
I was at the Sound Everest festival with @bettina_puehringer@winonawetzl and @haraldstuerzl this weekend. Because a festival and skiing was not enough for us, we decided to go for a hike too.
Really had a blast this weekend 😁
it’s that time of the year when the entire population of my home country collectively falls into the habit of consuming bizarre amounts of tangerines. even the people who hardly ever eat fruit. we all submit to this cult-like ritual as it is as inevitable as wham!‘s last christmas on the radio
On Sunday at 7am, We will give Yves a ride to the Miami airport (he returns to France on Monday)....using our 27’ Cobalt motor boat!!! Plan is to take the boat down from Cape Coral, past Naples, along the Everglades and then cross the Keys and run up the Atlantic side to Miami and then rally the Miami River to the Miami International airport (terminal 2)!!!! #thereisa $35shuttle #lookingforadventure#fortmyerstomiami#gulflife#saltwateradventure#27footcobalt
