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.

Meaningless Scam Artists

I am not confused by criminals that commit crimes for personal gains. I don't like them, but I understand their reasons for doing it. I can't wrap my brain around the criminals who commit crimes for the sole purpose of doing harm to other people. I guess it gives them a sense of power or perhaps they just find it entertaining in some twisted way.

My mother was almost the victim of a totally meaningless scam. Luckily she talked to me before falling for it and no harm was actually done. She received two postal money orders out of the blue in the amount of $950.00 each. She didn't know what they were for but called me quite excited, "They are real postal money orders made out to me with my address on them and everything!" I advised her to call the post office. Nobody sends money to people for no reason. She called and sure enough they were fake. She would have been forced to pay that money back. I've thought long and hard about this and can't see what gain the perpetrator would have for doing this. The person would gain nothing him or herself. I don't understand the point. It's the same with people who make computer viruses for the sole purpose of messing up someones computer. It's just so senseless to me.
