God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. ~ Psalm 46:1
What do you do when life gets hard, scary, weary? Some people run or hit the gym, others eat or bury themselves in work. I talk, I laugh, and I write. God was super kind to me and gave me a great sense of humor and the ability to find laughter and joy in the midst of hard things. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of times I can’t see the joy, let alone laugh, and I cry my heart out and I get angry and I question God’s plan. He kindly brings me back because joy comes from within and nothing can take that away.
This blog is a place for me to write about some current things going on, as well as some things in the past. We want to share our journey and, we truly hope, to encourage others and to share things we have learned along the way.
I’m Shannon, wife to Carlos, mom to five, a mother-in-law and “bonus” gramma to two sweet girls! I also have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 12 chickens on 2.5 acres of dirt that is home to two owls, a lot of woodpeckers, road runners, quail, and sometimes gopher snakes and even coyotes! We’ve had some interesting things come to our family and I look forward to sharing them with you! If you want to stay “in the know” of our latest situation, scroll to the bottom and follow and you’ll get email updates when I post new info.
For now, here are some photos so you have faces to the names.
