How Did you Get So Strong?

August 28, 2019 in Family, Sentiments - No Comments

We get this question a lot.

Most people who haven’t walked the same path that we have can’t fathom how we are able to withstand the storms that we have……

How we are able to keep getting up after getting knocked down.  Again and again.

How we are able to handle the stress and the worry.  The grief and the heart ache.

Simply, if you get a cut, a scar forms.

If you get broken, you put your self back together.  Sometimes it takes a while for the bones to heal and the scar to form but you do it.

We have the scars and bruises to show for the long road that we’ve survived.

But, every battle we’ve won.

Every long war we’ve won.

And every time we’ve over come the pain…..we’ve gotten a little bit stronger.


And soon, we realized what would have formerly knocked us down and made us weary…..we are now taking in stride.

Something that would have sidelined us, torn us apart, and set us back ten steps……we now can tackle it, work through it, and over come it.

Because we’ve put in the time on the battlefield.

We’ve gone through pain.

We’ve earned our scars.

They tell a story.

One of hard fought battles won.

Times where our strength of character was forged.

Those times…..they didn’t break us.

They made us stronger.

The strongest hearts have the most scars.

Beautiful markings of hellfire, healing, and hope.

Reminders of how we carefully pieced ourselves back together.

Creating a beautiful and brilliant tapestry out of our scars.

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
