t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Help NieNie and Love Deeper

The end. Just the thought overwhelms me. Even with what I know. I know death is not the end. Not for me. Not for my marriage. Not for my children. But to think of leaving my children behind, with no notice...for someone else to kiss their sweet mouth's and rub their tummies...absent for Emmy's first steps...never seeing Pip wildly skipping through the house for no particular reason...missing the moments of Ellery carefully and lovingly watch her siblings, content without the spotlight...never another moment of decision, laugh or scold, always grateful when I chose the former...

Is this what Stephanie Nielsen thinks lieing in her hospital bed? I was just introduced to Stephanie and Christian. Both bodies irrecoverably burned. Children shephered in by a gracious and loving family. Read her sister cjane's blog chronicling the journey. I am certain you will love your husband, children, siblings deeper today and onward for it.

I'm going to send a few Cap Trappers for the kids...and hopefully drum up some support from other readers.
