The First Journey- Part 2

The night after I had gone to the doctors started out uneventful. Relaxed for a bit and went to bed at 10 pm. I woke up an hour later and thought my water was leaking and I was cramping about every 5 minutes. I piddled around for about an hour while texting with my mom,… Continue reading The First Journey- Part 2

Selfish

What is it to be selfish? When I think of selfish I think of doing something for yourself, something only for you.

Obviously I know that others feel differently than I can/do but I never understood it until now. Everyone has known someone going through a trying… Continue reading Feelings

Seasons

I read this article once, it talked about "seasons" that marriages go through. Anyone who has been in a relationship knows what I'm talking about. It's those times that the relationship changes; like that special time right after marriage -the honeymoon phase, or when children come into the picture.
