Unashamed that God wrecks me. Every. Single. Time.

I am a cry-er. Literally, that person who cries when happy, sad, anxious, angry… I just cry. I’ve been called a cry baby, over sensitive and over empathetic, I’ve accepted them. Most times my tear ducts just have a will of their own and I honestly can’t help it. This happens to me so much in church during praise and worship! I will be standing there singing and my eyes will just start doing their thing. This Sunday was no different except this time, I was proud of it.

Mom on a mission, a successful VBAC story!

Vaginal birth after c-section or VBAC, is a topic that has been discussed at great length. Mostly by mother’s who couldn’t give natural birth themselves, and would like to try natural birth thereafter. My own births were first vaginal and then c-section. My good friend Janine, has however successfully had a VBAC with an amazing story. It moved me. She has graciously allowed me to share her story to encourage or motivate any mom who might be considering this too.

Rhino Coin Bank – Raising funds for WildLife ACT

Recently the world’s last living male northern white Rhino died. Isn’t sad to think how this incredibly majestic species is on the verge of extinction? How our grandchildren may not one day be able to see it in real life? The last time Ian and I visited a wildlife park, the absolute surrealism of being in the presence of such a creature wrecked me. I was so overwhelmed. For this reason I absolutely love supporting initiatives that are fighting this – not only for us, but for generations to come.
