Christian. Special Ed. Teacher. Wifey. Blogger. Spoonie.
Welcome to my neck of the woods where transparency runs deep through my veins. I want to spend the rest of my life making others feel less broken. And in this, I hope you stay awhile until something here has made your heart feel full.
When I was little, I had big dreams of becoming an astronaut or a singer/songwriter. Life happened, and now I’m a special education teacher. No, I wouldn’t (nor want to) be anything else.
One day, I met a guy named Lewis. He had tattoos and played music so I said, “I do” on November 4th, 2017. Only kidding, the real reason is his heart for God. Truly.
We bought our first home in 2019 and happily live with our two cats Meeko and Wall-y. My husband has to mow a half acre almost every weekend and he absolutely loves it (he he).
I’m sick a lot and it’s pretty painstakingly annoying. I suffer from Systemic lupus (Dx2013) and NMO / Devic’s disease (Dx2019) among other illnesses such as hypothyroidism, optic neuritis, migraine, and depression (full story here). I have to have IV infusions every two weeks in hopes of not having another relapse. I do wonder what life used to feel like to be pain free; to feel normal. My first article on chronic pain was published on She is More and I’m a contributing writer for The Mighty. Hospitals suck. Although, I can’t complain about pain med relief. And the warmth that friends bring no matter how long you’re there.
So there is some of my life. I’m a Christian with an obsession for sweaters, chocolate, and broken people to know how loved they are by Jesus Christ. At least, that’s what gets me through life.
And this is my blog.
