Some Messes are So Worth It!


This is a mess! 
 You won't often find messes in my dining room because that's not how we roll.
But this mess is a blessing.


This mess is a sign of perseverance and pride and dreams that don't give up.


This mess is being made by our son who started college 5 years ago but got sick and had to stop.
He has worked his way back to healthy and is at it again.


We are so proud of him!!
Life doesn't always take the path you think it will take.
But most of the time something great is around the corner if you look for it and expect it.

We love you T!!

I have tears in my eyes reading this proud mama moment. :-) Resilience and persistence are beautiful things, aren't they?

P.S. We've had struggles with that very same illness, too. You're not alone.

Good for him! I see we have some things in common, among them a love of bacon and bright sharpie markers :>) Best of luck to him as he finishes his degree!

It took my girl 10 years to finish college. She graduated two years ago (along with her hubby) and debt free.

So thrilled for your son! PROUD MOMMA for sure!!!!
