It’s time for a theme change. It isn’t just a blog theme change. It’s a life theme change. I leave the original “About Me’s” up, because it’s important to remember where I came from and how I got where I am now. I started writing to share my journey into motherhood, as my new Iranian husband and I embarked on the life I always wanted, trusting God, despite challenges, that he would always provide for us. “THE BEGINNING” is where I used to be.
Note: I’m not ready to update this. I’m not ready to rewrite my life. I can only write a small note for now. On June 1, 2016 my husband was shot and killed while driving for Lyft. So this was my life as I saw it a year ago. So if you are wondering why my writing doesn’t match the “About” it is because life changed in a way I don’t even want to think about and I’m trying to figure out how to be in this new reality.
This is a news story that generally gets it right.
Life in a nutshell.
I’m a Southern girl with a Yankee mother. Born and living in the South though I’ve spent time off and on in the Netherlands. At 35 I met an Iranian in Istanbul. He moved and we married the next year. Now the year after that, at 37, I have my first beautiful child.
I always planned to stay home with my child, but that does not appear to be God’s plan, so when our baby turns 12 weeks I will have to return to a fairly stressful, influential, and emotionally scaring job.
I’m trusting God has a plan to provide for us and I hope to write about his provision on this blog as time goes on. He will provide strength for our current circumstances and change for the future.
This is a place for me to record this new journey. It is a place to record this new life. This is a story for baby girl of how God provided for her and for us. This is a story for baby girl of how much she is loved. This is a blog of praise for what God has done and what he is yet to do.
I use the names Baby and Daddy more than the given names (thought I sometimes slip up and use the real names). I do this because someday they will create their own web presence and the top result of a search for their name should be the life they have created, and not the ramblings of Mommy and Wife.
