On the left is seven years ago….on the right, last week. Boy, what a difference seven years makes.
•In 2010, we had five kiddos, but only three home full time.🖐🏼
•I was dying my hair every three weeks or so to make myself look younger.😜
•I had zero concern about what kind of food I was putting into my body. If it sounded good, I ate it.
•I felt like I had arthritis….convinced myself I probably did just because I was hurting all the time.
•I mentally beat myself up all the time because I just felt like nothing was going right.
•I had a heart for adoption but saw no way to ever make that a reality in our lives.
•I was surrounded by clutter and felt like I was drowning with no hope of ever getting my house like I wanted it.
Today….things are different. Not perfect, just better. I feel better than I ever have. I contribute that to the foods I eat and making better choices about my health.
“2017 Jenifer” is better about giving herself grace…could still cut myself some more slack but I’m learning.
I’ve been working towards clearing out the clutter….Bryan is closer to getting my vision now than he was in 2010 so that helps.😜
I’ve embraced “me”. Gray hair and all. I love it. I’m just me. Take me or leave me.
We’ve adopted twice. And are trying our best to help families that are coming behind us. Excited to share something new with you in January that I’ve been dreaming about. 🌎💙💛
Our family has grown! We are blessed with nine children, a daughter-in-law and our first precious grand daughter. God has blessed us more than we deserve.
Change is good friends. Hard but so worth it.
