For the longest time I have stressed over making my blog something worth reading (and I hope you find that it is as well) I have taken a long siesta from writing in for the simple fact that I have been working on me and subsequently the blog. I found myself writing and doing this just to have something to blog about and that is far from what I wanted my blog or my life to be. When I started my blog, it was to share what I knew, what I learned and hopefully help a person or two along the way. I found myself dreading the everyday writing and that just broke my heart because at one point I really loved the idea of blogging.
After lots of praying and meditating, I realized that I am supposed to blog, but blog my way and not anyone else’s. God created me to be me and that is exactly what my blog is, me and my journeys with my children, as their mother, as a wife (at one point) and now as a single mom. What have I learned, what was my journey and how can my journey help someone.
About two years ago, you might remember me blogging about Mr. Barefoot and our life together. Well that came to a screeching halt when I learned that my life was not what it appeared to be. Mr. Barefoot was living a dual life. Now, before you start bashing, I have heard it all and been told it all, so please just save it and let me share the story. Mr. Barefoot wanted his cake and to eat it as well. I loved our life so much that I never realized that it wasn’t a life at all but a show.
Mr. Barefoot left about 15 days before Bean was born. Just up and left, I had been a stay at home mom and had no income. Well, as long of a journey it has been, the children and I are doing well. I have returned to work and adjusted my life to being a single mom of three adorable and loveable children. I hope that you can continue to share our journey with us and learn with us as we go.
One thing I have learned in the last couple of years is that, your faith is the only thing you can count on in this world. You must reflect, you must repent and you will be blessed. The children and I have purged and purged, not only things but emotional baggage that just tears you down. We have learned to live life with a purpose and share the blessing that we have been given with others.
I hope you enjoy our journey and continue to stay Barefoot in Paradise with us.
