Stephanie WaldonStephanie Waldon2017-11-23PSA for Black Friday shopper shamers: STOP. I went in to the store today for ONE THING. I don't do the whole "sales" scene because it's just not worth it to me. As it turned out, the Black Friday sales had already started. Before I knew it, I had half of Eva's wishlist in my cart and was paying a fraction of the price I had calculated for it all. Something came to me - the people around me looking to save a few dollars here and there (&I I don't mean the crazy 5 tv hoarders or toaster fight shoppers 🙄) have different circumstances. Some may have just lost a job. Others may have more children than they can financially support (don't judge them - I myself have one more child than I planned to have & am happier for it) or they just believe in spoiling their children once a year like many parents do. More money saved means extra outings or money for a family dinner night out, which anyone deserves to enjoy. Bottom line is please stop insulting and making fun of people looking to save money. I happened to be at the right place at the right time but others look for deals like I got today to no avail. While many don't need to use coupons or hunt down the best deals out there, there are many others who work hard to give their children simple luxuries and need to penny pinch in order to afford that new bike or the shopkins doll they asked Santa for. We need to live and let live and stop being so judgemental. ThatIsAll 🙁 https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23823770_835305909972518_3514611325030367232_n.jpg2017-11-23

https://instatbt.com/Place/north-carolina/287507687North CarolinaWhen I write.... I write as a mother. The mother of children that have been my life since the minute they were born. The mother that knows my children inside and out and has seen them bloom and grow since tiny newborns. The mother that feels their pain and sees their stress and relishes in their joy. The mother that knows them better than anyone else and can read the tone in their voice and the language their body speaks. The mother that wants and tries to do whatever is needed to help them become Jesus loving, caring, considerate, knowledgeable, independent adults.
I also write as a mother that isn't perfect. A mother that makes mistakes and worries and stresses about getting it all right. A mother second guesses her decisions and caves a little too easily. A mother that tries so hard to be a good mom, but questions what that even looks like. A mother that some days has it all together and some days is hanging on by a thread. A mother that forgets things, doesn't print out pictures, and still has baby photos that never made it past the box I brought them home in. A mother that prays for guidance and then freaks over puddles of water on the bathroom floor and overflowing garbage pails. A mother that is just trying to be a little bit better each day.
I write as a stepmother. A stepmother that doesn't live with her stepchildren, and has come to realize that my role is different than a stepmom that lives with their stepchildren. A stepmother that made mistakes in the beginning, but has learned from them a great deal. A stepmother that has grown in my role by understanding that some of the hardest things for me to do, are the best things I can do for them...making efforts to get along with their mom, accepting that even though they love their dad that they aren't 7 anymore and have opinions and their own lives that have gone on without us, that sometimes they just need a break or have something else they want to do. And though it's hard and sometimes hurts our feelings, we know that the best thing we can do, is to love them through it, not guilt them or pressure them and acknowledge that their feelings are 👉🏼finish reading at FB/RealifeMama 💕
LeJeune PhotographyLeJeune Photography2017-11-23I have many “things” to be grateful for. One being, despite all of us not caring for this duty station at all, my family is together. We have each other and we all feel the same way. We all miss our last duty station, our friends and our military family. I’m so incredibly grateful that we are able to be here with my husband instead of be apart from him for an entire year like many overseas billets require (even though last month I said I would have never come if I had known what I know now) and that night change a few times over these next 20 months. 20 more months until we’re back on American soil - except the husband he gets to “visit” for an entire month in Jan/Feb 👎🏼He brought back gifts from this last trip - honey buns, star crunch, rotel, my favorite chocolates, powered donuts and more! https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/p640x640/23823241_1150738165062009_5029904619174625280_n.jpg2017-11-23

https://instatbt.com/Place/glendale-arizona/217294390Glendale, ArizonaI’m thankful for my 14 month old busy bee and my husband that serves his family, his country, and his fellow man. I’m thankful for the blessings that fill up my days; for dog parks and friendly people. I have immense gratitude for the experiences I have been able to have and the beauty I have witnessed. I am grateful for my challenges that have made me who I am and teach me every day to be more patient, humble, and empathetic. I am blessed to have countless cheerful memories and the opportunity to gain more. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
