This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

Dynisha Sings

Dynisha loves to sing. She has a beautiful singing voice, too. She asked me how old you have to be to enter American Idol. When I told her that she would have to be sixteen she was sorely disappointed. I promised her that if American Idol was still going when she turned sixteen that I would take her to audition myself.

She sings in the choir at school. It seems like it's fairly active. The sang at the Knoxville Fantasy of Trees, Linda Brown Realty Open House, the Oak Ridge Tree Lighting Ceremony, and are the Oak Ridge City Christmas Parade on December 13.

I'm glad she loves to sing. I've been singing since I could talk. It gives us a common bond. I have had a great many opportunities due to my voice. I hope that she will have the same experience.
