Octuplets Frenzy

Nadya Suleman
Mother of the second set of Octuplets to be born in the U.S.
She's going through a lot right now and so many people have something to say about her situation. Regardless of how it happened, these babies are here now.
All eight babies:
Noah, Maliah, Isaiah, Nariah, Makai, Josiah, Jeremiah and Jonah

These babies are the world's second set of Octuplets to be born alive. They are also the only set of Octuplets that has had all babies survive this long. Everything else aside, that's amazing to me. I hope they all make it.
I don't think that what this woman needs right now is the entire world telling her how stupid she is or people sending her death threats. This is a crucial time in these baby's lives and she is probably worried about them all making it. Especially since multiple births have an increased risk of death.

  1. Definitely. I think they are so lovely. I don't see how people have the capacity for so much hate. Isn't there enough of that on a daily basis without taking something as wonderful as motherhood and trying to destroy it?

    I too wish all the best to these babies and this family.

  2. Thanks for commenting Ms. Bar B!
    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who feels this way.

  3. I have mixed feelings about the story.. I could really understand her wanting children and doing the fetility treatments if she had none but had 7 already. I understand wanting a large family because I absolutely love the Duggars not a fan of Jon and Kate 8, but I think wisdom has to prevail over selfishness and want. Tax payers should not be burdened. And the hate mail she has received is totally unacceptable. And people calling her "Octpussy" which I did laugh at first but felt shamed.

  4. The way this pregnancy came about I am NOT cool with. I think both she and the doctor were irresponsible and I know what you mean about the taxes. Like you, I just don't agree with the anger that has people talking so badly about her and sending death threats.

    I feel the same way about the Duggars. It's funny because I really don't like Jon and Kate myself. I wonder where the money would come from to support her children if she didn't score a TV show. Jon's working part time from home now and who can support 8 children on a part time income.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
