About Me

My photo
Kirkland, Washington, United States
I am a child of God. I am a follower of Jesus. I am a wife, momma, daughter, sister and friend. I love good conversation and hearty laughter. A good cup of coffee is always appreciated. Most of all, I desire to bring others into an experience with Jesus. One that will shape their lives and rock their souls for Him. Geoff is my best friend and amazing husband. Parker is my handsome boy who lives in Heaven. Norah is my bright star and bringer of joy. Tori is my overcomer and peaceful warrior. I live to show Jesus' love to each person He places in my path. I pray this blog strengthens you, comforts you and encourages you and that it MOST OF ALL causes you to want to get to know Jesus in a deeper level.

Never Fails...

...every time I hear of another mommy and daddy who have lost, my heart breaks and I go right back to the place Geoff and I were when we lost our Parker.

I find myself desiring, strongly, to run to that mommy and tell her everything will be alright. I find myself wanting, so desperately to burst into their hospital room and reassure them that God is near and holding them tight.

But I know that I can't, so I wait and I pray for them every day. Every time I think about Parker I pray for other mommies and daddies who have lost.

If you could pray with me for these families, that would be wonderful!

Oh to work from home...

It's so hard to be a working mom. I hate the fact that I'm away from my Norah for 8 hours a day. I hate it. However, I fully understand and except the fact that I have chosen this lifestyle for myself. Regardless, it's still hard.

So I've been on the hunt for work from home opportunities. I've checked into several options out there, but I am so nervous about taking the plunge. I've even looked into part time work. I just want more time with my Norah.

If any one has any advice or ideas that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think I have a problem

I have found that I stalk people online.

I'll log onto facebook, go to a friends page, look at their friends and so on and so on until I'm on someone's facebook that I don't even know, staring at their pictures and reading about them. Is this weird? I think so.

What's really weird is that I find myself getting inspired by many of the people that I stalk on facebook or here on blogger. I find myself being moved to try new things or to step out of my comfort zone and attempt something that I never thought I would do.

For instance, I have been intrigued by the thought of a "v-log". Yup, I am toying with the idea of a video blog. How crazy would that be?! I have always had a love affair with talking and I personally think I'm better at talking then I am at writing, at least for the most part that seems to be true. If only I could get my husband to agree to this, then I might do it.

Also, I have been inspired to not stick to one topic of blogging. For the last few years I have blogged strickly about my Parker and as life changes and morphs, I have discovered that there is so much more I want to say. So I'm going to continue to blog about my Parker, but also about other life happenings because the blog is, after all, titled Rachel's Ramblings 365.

So, just wanted to share about my stalker-ish ways and about what's going on in my head in an effort to figure it all out for myself.

Thanks for reading everyone!! Stay tuned!
