Saturday morning I walked with MyMama in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Fort Worth, TX.

We walked in honor of MyAunt Marcella B. Pittman.

We also walked in honor of MyMama who is a seven-year breast cancer survivor.

MyMama in her Super Survivor Cape.

And MyDearFriend who was recently diagnosed with Stage Four breast cancer.

We had a wonderful day.

It was emotional,

but it was so beautiful to see that sea of pink.

There were survivors EVERYWHERE!

We’ll walk again next year,

hopefully with a team of supporters

Sunday morning,

Shug & I woke up early.

We prayed and then we went to MyParents.

Shug & MyDaddy boiled 68 lbs of crawfish.

MyBigBrother and cousin came over,

and we devoured all of them except for about 10 lbs!

They were delicious!!

So there it is,

I had a wonderful weekend!

March 29, 2005 was the day we decided to throw away birth control.

As much as we were loving on each other,

we didn’t think that it would take long for me to get pregnant.

Every month we got excited because my period was two to three weeks late.

Little did we know that was classic PCOS.

We’d find that out three years later.

Anyway,

it’s five years later and we’re still not parents.

BARREN!

I’ve been down in the dumps,

really low.

My period started on March 29th.

Felt like a slap in the face.

My 41-year-old uterus is useless.

I decided to climb out of the darkness.

I have a lot to be thankful for.

Shug and I are in a good place.

We still love and respect each other.

We still want the best for each other.

And we’re seriously looking into other options for starting our family.

So,

I think I’ll be posting more.

It’s time to move on.

Time to stop obsessing about how much time has passed.

Look forward to the future.

God has something special planned for us.

Otherwise we wouldn’t have made this far.

 Together.

FIVE YEARS = 60 Months.

I’ll post an update at some point and before this week ends.

41

It’s one thing to say you’re 40,

but BEING in your 40’s is totally different!

At least it is,

in my mind.

Last year at this time, 

I was just trying to keep my head above water.

This year,

Shug is healthy,

we’re happy,

and all is as well as it could be.

I’m blessed to be able to see 41.

It’s just a number……

Sharing the cake topper on our first anniversary.

Sharing the cake topper on our first anniversary.

Four years ago today we got married.

Three weeks after Hurricane Katrina.

Three weeks after we lost everything.

It was a small,

but perfect ceremony.

Just family and close friends.

We exchanged white gold wedding bands that we purchased  from a Zales outlet for $500.

A year later Shug got me a beautiful wedding set.

As much as I love my rings;

I only wear them on weekends

or on special occasions.

I wear my simple band everyday.

It was purchased with all that we had,

and it’s more precious than anything that I own.

I love him with all that I have.

And he loves me as well.

He’s my heart.

I wish that I could give him what I know he wants.

Prayerfully,

hopefully,

miraculously.

I love you Shug!

Thank you for making me your wife.

Mom & DadMyMama is donating a kidney to MyDaddy!!!

She starts her work up on Tuesday,

and the transplant will take place in about two weeks!

We’re so excited.

MyDaddy had renal cancer in his left kidney,

it was removed in December 1999.

He’s been on dialysis since his right kidney failed in May 2005.

In March 2007,

he started home dialysis.

My mother dialyzes him six days a week.

He’s been on the transplant list for three years.

They celebrated their 45th anniversary on August 22nd.

And now,

he’s getting MyMama’s kidney!

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!!!

It’s not fun to be in the tww without any hope.

Thank God Cletus is around.

That’s my legs that he’s made his pillow.

He makes me smile
