Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I have been a mother for a year (March 2011), & a step-mom for 3 years. I am far from being a perfect mother that it can be embarrassing. My intimate friends know the struggles that I have had with my parenting. I thought I should keep it on the “down-low” but the more I saw the truth, the more I thought others might benefit from my reality. "Don't you just love being a mother?" "No" would be my first response, then followed by "however..."
Not only am I a mother, but first I am the lover of my amazing Samoan husband “MM”. Throw in that I married in my mid-30s and learned we were having a baby at 38, that just after we bought our first home I lost my job of 8 years. Now I have the blessing to stay at home and work from home. I also had the privilege of giving birth to my "Pule" at home without any meds. It is not for everyone and I respect that.
A little bit more about me? Well, I didn’t always want to have a child. And here I am married to a husband from a culture where they say "birth control"? What’s that? My SIL has 7 children and she is younger than me. We are followers of Christ (far from perfect there too!) and so we put our faith where it matters most. Thus our Pule was born. She is not ours, but His. We do our best to walk our life out of obedience, but every day we fail.
My hope is that this blog reflects me, my life & with the remote possibility that someone else may be encouraged. Be forewarned…I may be opinionated, have loud outbursts, and offend, I will never judge and always forgive.
I have been blogging since...

I became the mother at the age of 20. The feeling I got is inexpressible. I was not prepared to take this responsibility. I was unemployed. My mother died when I was very young. I had to struggle a lot to earn a livelihood. It was a very struggling era of my time. I cried when I…
