thoughts from me
Thank you all for the recent messages and comments showing your appreciation for our blog. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. It warms my heart to know that we are reaching so many.
When I began this blog, I wasn’t sure what it’s purpose would be but I’ve found that it’s definitely been to share. I know what it’s like to feel alone as an Epilepsy Momma. This has lead me to share our life here so that you don’t feel alone as well.
I’m here if you need advice or just a listening ear. Please send me a message any time or leave a comment with your contact info. I screen all comments so no one sees those until they are released by me.
God bless each of you.
I woke up this morning with a list of things to do that was a mile long. I had ever single intention of getting it done. I truly did.
But God had other plans for me. Not one single thing on that list got done today. Not one.
But you know what? That’s okay! God had better plans.
Three friends came to me with needs today. They needed a friend and sometimes that’s just what we need to be. A true friend to others in their times of need.
Today, I helped a Momma figure out how to start her journey with homeschooling. To me, that’s just awesome! I can hardly wait for her to start this journey. She and her children are going to absolutely love it.
Today, I helped a friend who is heading for divorce. Her heart is broken. God is carrying her daily.
Today, I helped a friend who is being harassed. She’s upset that women would try to destroy her credibility and ruin her good name. Bullying doesn’t stop with high school, y’all.
Today, I listened as a friend complained that their job is challenging and their life is in shambles. They just needed a listening ear. Someone to care for that moment.
This is the list God had planned for me today. Nothing that was in my plans got done but everything in his is. And I hope, I pray that I helped each one in the best way that I could. I listened. I responded. I prayed. I was a friend.
How has God changed your plans recently? What did you get done with His guidance that wasn’t on your list?
Behind the scenes, there’s been a lot going on here at Luv’N Lambert Life. It takes a lot to keep a blog running and reviews available to share with you. It takes a lot to create blog content as well.
Right now, I’m working on deleting old content, as well as reworking some posts. I’ve removed some past details of our family life, as well as obsolete images. I’ve also deleted unneeded posts we had.
In the future, I’m considering making the move to WordPress but I’m still undecided on that. I will be adding in more affiliate posts for content that I truly enjoy. I will also be adding separate tabs that I will share our posts on. That will include our Epilepsy Awareness tab with updated posts from us.
I’m embracing being an Epilepsy and Breath Holding Spells Awareness blogger. It’s a much needed genre for blogging and it’s something I really enjoy. I know those posts aren’t always well designed from me but they are real and raw and I plan to keep writing them.
I recently purchased a blog planner from my dear friend, Katie Hornor and I will be sharing more about that later on. It’s amazing and I really needed something that could help me stay on track. Blogging has been a part of our life for almost 10 years now and I feel I want to become a little more serious and a little less hobby-like with it.
So that’s where we are for now. I promise the posts I remove you won’t miss. The ones I keep will be getting some changes as well: photos, rewrites, etc. All will make Luv’N Lambert Life better in the end.
Thanks for sticking by us through it all.
She’d spent her life watching her brother and sister accomplish great things. Their dream careers came to life like it was nothing for them, while she held back, mostly out of fear.
She was afraid. She could admit that. She feared what others might say. She feared that her dreams would never come to life. She feared she would be a failure, if she ever even tried.
She’d spent years dreaming, hoping for something to push her forward to overcome her fears. One day she realized that something could only be herself. She was the dreamer after all. No one could make these dreams happen for her.
So she stepped out of her shy box and began. Her greatest adventures were yet to be written. Her dreams waited to come true.
And now we begin my journey…
Until next time…

March has come in quickly. I can hardly believe it’s already the 6th! It was just February.
This month brings lots of reviews. Things from the Crew and lots of other places. Great books from great authors we love to read!
I spent last week gathering a menu for the month. I haven’t done one in quite a while. 32 days to get us through to next month. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snack since we are homeschoolers and we’re home all day most days.
My biggest challenge is always feeding the picky eaters and keeping up with who eats what and how they prefer certain foods. Laycie isn’t a bread lover. Jack doesn’t like variety. Win’s least favorite is veggies. Emma doesn’t eat cabbage and has recently decided she’s not a fan of toast.
This month provides some fun for our menu though. We will eat mostly Irish meals the week of St. Patrick’s Day. We also have Easter on April 1st so I chose the plan to include that as well. Lots of variety and fun new foods to try.
Last night, we had Pigs In A Blanket with brats instead of hot dogs. We’ve cut out hot dogs a lot because of the processing of them and switched to sausage when we can. They were good but not a favorite for us this time.
I’m still writing. I’m also diving into our ancestry which is fun. It’s been awesome seeing who we’re all related to and just how unique our family truly is. The kids have enjoyed the lessons as well. I hope so share more on this in the future.
I’m feeling better, health and energy wise. I think it shows. Healthier me will bring more time to work online as well as get out and do more. I’m looking forward to taking photos again and sharing more of those here on our little blog.
Well, that is us, for now.
Until next time…
