day 5: passionate about

Yay for another day of linking up for the blog-tember challenge with Bailey of Brave Love! Today's is: day 5 - "I am passionate about _____."

Sleep. Food. More sleep, maybe with some Chipotle on my nightstand. ;)

In all honesty, I kind of struggled to write this post. I thought about just leaving it after that first line, because I wasn't sure what to write. These days, I don't feel like my regular "old" self, and that's a little depressing for me when I really sit down to think about it.


But I am passionate about my husband. The first trimester was not pretty for me, and it wasn't easy on him, either. Summers are my time to be super productive, and I did nothing (literally, nothing) but sleep and try to not throw up. Lovely image, I know. It was tough for both of us, but he really stepped up to the plate. He started to take on more responsibilities that I used to carry so that I wasn't stressed out about them. Even once I started working again and looked like a productive member of society, he kept doing more and more for me. He's just that way, and I love him indescribably for it.

I'm relearning how to be passionate about teaching. I always thought I was, until last year took the joy out of it. I've got 28 sweet kiddos, and am an inclusion teacher, and I love it. I feel the support from the other second grade teachers, from our administration, and from my parents. That has made such a huge difference. I truly enjoy going to work each day, and that's teaching me how to love to teach again.

I'm passionate about our little pea. I had a moment yesterday where I saw her ultrasound on my desk, looked down and saw my bump and thought, "(insert her name here), you sure are growing!" and almost cried. Her name finally really registered with me, and I love it all the more. I'm blaming it on the pregnancy hormones, but I really am so excited to have a little girl come February. And I think we'll share her name soon. I'm thinking of doing that in a creative way, though (especially since nothing else about any of our announcements have been creative!). ;)

When I have the energy for it, I'm usually passionate about quilting and making our cookie-cutter Air Force base house a home that reflects us. This is no easy task, mind you, because we have a very 1980s design with white linoleum throughout our entire house (which majorly sucks in the bedrooms), white walls, and white trim to match. It's not a pretty white, either. In the past 3 1/2 years though, I'm amazed to say we've made it quite homey!

Oh, and how could I forget Lilly & Shiloh?! Of course, I'm passionate about these two boogs. They're our fur babies, and already think the nursery is their new play room... ;)


Can't wait to read what ya'll are passionate about! And I hope it's a lot more than Chipotle burritos. Although there is no judgement from me if that's what your current passion is. Mine the past two days has been homemade chicken tacos. I almost ate one for breakfast Thursday morning.

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster .
