Stress Free For A Day

Today has been a stress free day, Imagine that! I have done absolutely nothing. HaHa! I have so much on my To-Do List but I took advantage of this beautiful day and decided to just sit back and laugh, play, sing, and lay around and enjoy Brently and my husband.

We set out on the back deck in the scorching heat talking about our plans in the next few days.  School is about to start and my husband and I have decided to keep Brent home another year.  I think Brent is okay with that. I asked him, Do you want to go to school this year? He shook his head “no” (typical teenager) and then I asked, Do you want to stay at home and school come to you? He signed “yes”.  So, I am assuming he likes the Homebound Services that are in place from the previous school year.   Brent’s health has been good for the most part of summer but he is still doing this gurgling sound as if he can’t swallow and gets choked a lot of the time (that is why he is tube fed) I suction him to help with that.  The machine we use for that is so heavy.  Anywhere we go, We have to take the entire house and then some but we are grateful we have this type equipment to help during a crisis. My main focus of today was to just have an easy fun day of doing nothing and I tell you, It has been great letting all the worries of this world go. Tomorrow is a new day! We must make the best of what we have and enjoy the time we all have together.  Brently is such an amazing young man.  Today has been a good day.

About Tonya Aycock

Hi, my name is Tonya. I am a wife and mom of two children (Brandon & Brently). I am a born again Christian. My passion is raising awareness for my boys and making sure they have the very best that I can give them. I love singing. I was in a Southern Gospel Group for about three years, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think most of all, besides the singing, I enjoyed meeting people and sharing my testimony of how God has brought me through. I love playing guitar and hearing my sweet husband play music and sing to our boys. I enjoy making crafts and designing floral arrangements. I love camping. I am always up for a new adventure! I enjoy working in my yard and anything outdoors. I love my home. I like taking pictures of God’s beautiful creation. The hummingbirds, Canadian geese, turtles, and deer are beautiful! I never dreamed that I would enjoy the country as much as I do. I have always been a city kind of girl, so let’s just say I am adjusting to the country's life well. Haha! Another exciting thing about my husband and myself is that we have always wanted to open a restaurant. Maybe one day… who knows…. I created this blog to share the in’s and out’s of daily living of being a mom of children with special needs, how life can change in an instant, losing a child, finding real friendships that live the same kind of life that I do that truly understand, and much more. I love to talk about my faith as I learn how to cope through life (good and bad) together. I want to always put complete control in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, because without Him, I am nothing. My prayer is that I can somehow help someone by sharing my story. It is most definitely easier said than done, and I fail daily, but striving to make things work in a world that doesn’t understand is just one of the reasons I am here, writing and sharing my story and trying to be the best me as I can and being the best mother that my children will love and respect and see me survive and thrive as I watch them surviving two thriving in life. But, most of all that they see Jesus in me. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 God has a plan for my life and my family as well and for who is reading this right now. I can only hope and pray that I am doing what He has called me to do…… Being a wife, mom, advocate of special needs, a friend, encourager, but most of all… a servant of His. This has been and continues to be a unique life raising my SuPeR HeRo children dancing in the rain of the beautiful, messy life!
