In the beginning...........

Okay, so here it goes.....the crazy Michelle has finally decided to do something that she has dreamt about for a long while............I'm going to write a blog.  I have decided that 2012 is going to be the year for me. Well, not me in that I am going to be completely SELF focused.......but in that I am going to focus on developing myself......and that includes becoming a better person, mom, wife, friend, daughter, sister, employee, and most importantly----working on my personal relationship with my Lord and Savior.  I say with pride that ia m a Christian and yet I continuously fall short of the glory of God.  I know that God does not expect perfection, but He definitely deserves more than I am have given Him and so does my family.  Here's to a New Year!!!

I am a "constant work in progress."  Hence the name of my blog.  I strive to be better and tend to beat myself up when I fail.  But I guess first, I should tell a little about myself.  I am mother of 3 AMAZING children.  There is Madison Renee, my 8 year old daughter, who never ceases to amaze me.  She has a great spirit and is a little dramatic(she gets it from her Momma) and VERY creative.  She is currently in the 3rd grade....She plays the violin, the piano, loves to sing...but Madison's main focus: DANCE!  She is in her 5th year of dance and her first year of competeition,.  SHe performs in tap, jazz, ballet, and modern.  I know she is mine, so I may be alittle biased, but I defintiely think that she is FANTASTIC at all she does.

Then there is 2 year old Myles McCoy.  What a character my little man is.  He is very indeoendent, aside from the fact that he will be 3 in April and absolutely REJECTS potty usage.  I know, I know...I better get on the ball...I'm working on it, I swear!!  This little boy is so smart!  He is set in ways and tends to be quite stubborn...but I think it truly makes him the little boy that he is right now.

And LAST, but certainly not least, is 5 month old, Mayci Dai.  She is my little blessing in disguise.  She might not have been a planned baby, but she MUST have been in God's plan for me and I trust HIm all the way.  She is already developing quite the personality and I am excited about sein gwhat kind of little girl she is going to become.......

My husband, Damian, was definitely sent to me from God..even though at times, I shake my finger at God and ask, WHY OH WHY!! In all seriousness, Damian is my support system...we have been married for almost 5 years and are still learning so much from and about one another.  While challenging at times, it is worth every second!!

My ultimate goal in life is to develop a stronger, closer, and more intimate relationship with God.  I would like to raise my children in the ways of God.  I strive to become the woman God has made me to be...


  1. Hey Michelle,

    I went to send you a message on Facebook about your blog but then I couldnt find you anymore. But anywho,This blog is awesome.Your stories are interesting and actually relatable. Obviously not in all ways seeing as I dont have three kids and a husband. Im in a serious relationship where my boyfriend just bought a house and I just got a new job about 3 months ago. The job has way more responsibilites than Im used to and Ive also been trying to play the role of "housewife". Once you take bigger steps in life, the responsibilites get bigger as well. Its a difficult task, seeing that I too have not been that much of a stickler for being clean. Alot of my friends are married with children and trying to maintain their household and keep their sanity as well. But its nice to see someone actually talking about it so you know that your not the only one who struggles!! You should really continue this blog as it is helpful to not only yourself but others as well. :)
