Please Pray

I have had a hard time gathering my thoughts around the news that I am about to share, but I know I must to ask you to please pray. Writing it out makes it seem all the more real, and frankly it is something that I very badly do not want to believe is true. Last week I got a phone call,  it was my oldest sister, Jolene, on the other line and she asked if it was a good time. She said that she had bad news and asked if I was able to talk.

On our phone call I discovered that my sister has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. I didn’t know what to say, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t want to believe it. This couldn’t be happening to her.

I think as a family we are all still in shock, but we know that we need to stick together, be present and positive throughout every step. There are a lot of unknowns, but what we do know is that she is not going to fight this battle alone. I also know that we have a God that is good and a God that heals. When you think of her, please pray.

Some prayers that have been on my heart:

• The ability to be positive. Asking God to show peace and surround Jolene with positive people and positive thoughts. Our minds can easily wander, we can hear negative things, I ask that there is no dwelling on the negative but through each step recognizing the positive.

• Appointments to be schedule. This past week and a bit has been a lot of waiting, we pray that appointments will line up and that the people that are on the other end of the appointments are pleasant and helpful for each following step.

• Complete Healing. The type of cancer that was found is not easily treatable. I believe fully that our God heals and I pray for a complete healing over Jolene.

If any of you have positive words or prayers that you would like to directly share with my sister, please email them to me [creativewifeandjoyfulworker@gmail.com] and I would gladly pass them on to her. We appreciate your prayers and support at this time. Thank you.

Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.

How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!

There are even more DIY ideas at the link in my profile thanks
to Canon and their PIXMA Printers. #Sponsored

Thanks for ALL the recommendations for everything to do in Gibson’s and the surrounding area. There are SO MANY awesome locally owned shops we want to discover still. Today started with a 🛥 tour by @sunshinekayaking as we explored along @sunshinecoastbc and the surrounding islands, we grabbed ☕️ at @beachcombercoffee and 🍦 at @mikesplace2003 along with food at @black.bean.cafe #yum !

Explored a little along the 🏖 and then discovered everything within @gibsonspublicmarket — leaving with some 🧀 🥖 🍎 for afternoon snacks. See everything in my stories including some sea creatures from @nsmec 🦐 🐟 🦀 sooo cool!! A quick 🚎 ride home with @bc_transit for a rest before the kids start begging to go for a 🏊‍♂️ 🏊‍♀️... it’s definitely tiring travelling around all day with three kiddos but my mamas some sort of superhero and their eagerness to learn and love for exploring makes it 💫🙌🏻🥰

One more day to #exploreBCbybus — excited to see what’s to come.
  • I’m surprised you can’t see the wrinkles on our bodies from the camera after our three hour swim this afternoon. 
We got up at 630AM to make sure we had enough time to finish packing 🤦🏼‍♀️ and drive out to catch our @bcferries — after a quick ⛴ ride over we all hopped on the @bc_transit city 🚎 into Gibson’s and then further into Sechelt ... where we became water prunes. 🏊 
I’ve been asked to share an article for @bc_transit on our experience as we #exploreBCbybus 🚎 — the next few days I’ll be sharing on my Stories some of the places we explore too! I’d love to hear your recommendations on places to eat, thanks to a lovely follower for suggesting dinner at 🍔 @pklsburgers, we are pleasantly stuffed.

Where should we go next?? 🌊 ☀️ We’ll be around Gibson’s and Sechelt the next two days.

Also, just gotta add... my mom makes a pretty great #InstagramGrammy 🙌🏻🥰🤣
  • You don’t need to birth a child to be a mama. I don’t talk about being a step-mama very often, mostly because overall it doesn’t feel any different then being a mama to the kiddos I birthed. Everyone’s journey to motherhood looks and feels different, some may seem easier but each unique with their own challenges. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey today, I want to say that you are loved, you are appreciated and you are exactly what the child you are mothering needs.
