The Princess and The Prosthetic

Turning our Tests into our Testimonial

I used to struggle so much with understanding why we were going through the hardships.

Why we had been picked for these struggles……

Why it was our baby that had to have open heart surgery……

Why it was our sweet little girl that had to have an amputation…….

Why it was our family that struggled with soul crushing medical debt……

Why we had to explain to our princess that she would have to use a prosthetic leg for the rest of her life…..




Until, I was rocked with the realization……these tests?  These gut wrenching trials?  These very hard things?

These tests…..will soon be our testimonial.  Our story, will soon be the blue print for someone else’s journey.  Our story, will one day motivate someone else to take that first step out of hardship.  Out of grief.  Out of darkness.  Out of sadness.


These tests aren’t here to break us. This pain is here to make us into warriors.

These heartbreaks aren’t here to destroy us.  They are here to teach us that what is coming is better than what is gone.

These falls….they teach us to rise.

These breaks……teach us we heal.

These setbacks…..teach us what we have overcome.

These things we are battling……teach us to never lose our smile.

These scars we are collecting don’t mean we’re broken……but that we are becoming.

These struggles……..teach us that even flowers have to grow through dirt.


And now I know, that by sharing our story, it might be the very thing that someone needs to open their own heart to hope and healing.  By sharing the story of the mountains we’ve climbed, we can set the world on fire with our truth, our light, our warmth and our courage.  Those things might end up being in someone’s survival guide……showing them that mountains do not rise without earthquakes.

About Me


Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
