I AM BACK and with a Jenni Bowlin GIVEAWAY!

It has taken me this long to finally come back and blog and to get back in the scrappy world after hearing my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It has been a very long three months and I have NEVER EVER in my life known anyone as strong as my momma. she has endured a MAJOR operation, recovery, major weight loss, eating issues, and now is going thru chemotherapy. All with a smile on her face and positivity in her voice. I am proud to say as of the last scan she is CANCER FREE!!! I am trying to move on and be faithful and know that SOMEONE somewhere is watching out for her and our family. God and prayer have played a huge role in helping me get thru this time mentally. I thank Him everyday. So now I am feeling ready to resume a more normal life, a happier life thinking happier thoughts! and with that said I HAVE A GIVEAWAY!!
