I’m never gonna stop getting back up.

When we were in the depths of our financial hell, I promised myself I could get a tattoo as soon as we were out of it.

I knew exactly what I wanted.

And today was the day.

I told the kids about it last night.

Number 4 and Number 7 immediately started crying.

NOOOOOOOOO MOMMMMMMMM! YOU’RE GOING TO LOOK WEEEEEEIIIIRRRRDDDDDDD! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

I already had three other tattoos, so I didn’t really know what all the drama was for.

Number 3 ‘s response?

Mom! What would you say if I said I was going to get a tattoo? What if I told you I was going to get a tattoo on… my nuts???

I told him if he decided on that location, I’d recommend he bring some painkillers along with him.

So, my family wasn’t exactly supportive.

But it didn’t matter. I still couldn’t wait.

And today I got part one of my tattoo.

There is more I want to add to it eventually, but the important part is there.

Just as a reminder when I need it most.

To remember where I’ve been, to remember where I am, and to remember what I’m capable of

Anything.

Because I know I’m gonna keep falling.

But I’m never gonna stop getting back up.

Ever.

    Well, check you out getting a tattoo! You go, mama! And in the exact same spot and same arm that I just got mine done! How about that! And I’ll tell you what else we have in common: kids! I have lots of them, too! In fact, the tattoo on my left arm is in memory of our #11 baby who passed away a year ago. Yeah, I know that sucks, right? It does. I can’t even believe that I can write it sometimes, but there it is. I have a baby in Heaven. It seems unreal at times. But I’ll tell you something, I love seeing his name every day on my arm. Love, love, love it 🙂
