Waiting: The Dreaded “W” Word & an Update

Waiting: The Dreaded “W” Word & an Update

So many exciting things have been going down at the Davis Place. There’s just too many testimonies to fit into one blog post. But, slowly and surely, I will share them through this blog and my Instagram/FaceBook feeds. Some are small wins and others are major happenings that rocked my God-filled heart.

Waiting. Honestly, for me, waiting is much more grueling than the diagnosis (or lack there of), the treatments, the hormones, the nonexistence of understanding from loved ones, and the bitterness that will sometimes infiltrate my heart just because I’m even having to go through this. None of it pales to the waiting.

Waiting. That’s a big part of any storm. Read more

Bad Timing = Best Laid Plans

Bad Timing = Best Laid Plans

I’m ashamed to admit that, while it’s no means a habit, I’ve actually sneaked out of my office and run like a crazy person to my car in an attempt to escape the noose held in my boss’s hand. Like a criminal fleeing from the scene of a crime. Wide eyed, trying not to look over my shoulder because let’s face it, you just lose time that way! Escaping the opportunity for my boss to find me or poke his head out of the building’s door to flag me down. Yes, I’ve done that. Complete with tire tracks leading from my parking spot to the stop light… #RunLikeMadFromTheBoss #AshamedButNotReally

Gratitude: A List in the Making

Gratitude: A List in the Making

Have you ever had one of those weeks that is so brutal you just can’t wait for it end? I found myself saying TGIFT today… Thank Goodness It’s Friday Tomorrow. It’s been one of those weeks.

In the wake of my BFN, I am going through the normal doubts and wonderings. Questioning everything. Finding my self bored with life and unable to sit still. Wondering if I’m still on the right path.

Plus, you know, the normal life stuff. Marriage. Friendships. Family issues. Etc etc… Completely normal. We all have them! One of those weeks. Read more

God is good. That’s all there is to it. The Holy Spirit has brought to mind the things I am to share with you today. Coffee in hand. My journal, bible, and heart are wide open. I’m ready to bring you to a level transparency that shows how in my weakness, I am made strong.

Y’all, I’ve been struggling these last few weeks. I mean, I have felt like the weight of this world has been on my shoulders. We all have been there. We’ve all been under the constraints of life.

In the spirit of “sharing is caring”, I’m going to share a few of my woes with you in hopes that perhaps one or a few of them will ring true with you today. Golly, that sounds sick? Doesn’t it??? Like I’m misery and would love some company??? That’s not what I mean and you know it.

My hope is that something may sound familiar because the ending of this short story is a good one. Read more

Supplements, Seeds, & Acupuncture OH MY!

Supplements, Seeds, & Acupuncture OH MY!

Hello All! I am so excited to share how our appointment with the Naturopathic Doctor went this week!

First, let me throw out a disclaimer. The regimens and advise shared in this post were given to me specifically. While a lot of these can be utilized by anyone, I highly suggest consulting a practitioner before trying them individually or all together.

Ok, with that out of the way I can share away!

Brooks and I had the pleasure of meeting with a Nathuropathic Doctor this week. As you may know by my last blog post we are not moving forward with IVF at this time. We had planned to do so but some stuff happened and we are not able to now. So, in lieu of that we are giving natural medicine a shot. Read more

Choose One: Wifedom or Motherhood???

Choose One: Wifedom or Motherhood???

By now, you’d think I would be a pro at the unknown. I mean it’s been almost 10 years since this journey began and it has been a big question mark from the start. Navigating this unpredictable life is something like walking blindfolded, having to feel your way through the darkness. You have arms length knowledge of what’s to come but nothing more. And sometimes it’s only elbow length. Life is like that.

Brooks and I are in that exact season. This entire summer we’ve known a change was coming. We knew something was going to be different and we thought we knew what that difference was.

I’ve even been planning my fall blog posts around these changes and how I’m going to tell you about it! I’ve been so eager to share with you!

But circumstances have changed and those plans aren’t plans anymore. At least not now. Read more
