Two Long Years

Today has been two years since my mom passed. Two very long years. Mother’s Day cards are filling stores. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about buying one for my mom. It’s almost like my brain forgets for a moment. I would like to say it’s gotten easier. I guess in some ways it has, but the…

Two amazing things happened for me last night. First, I’ve been praying that Owen would learn to sleep by me on the nights when he wakes to be fed. Up to now, I’ve felt a little like I’m in a wrestling match. He wiggles and crawls, pulls hair and is pretty much impossible to sleep with- it has made for…

I’m not sure my body has ever felt so weary. I lay in bed for long lengths of time thinking over the past months, and especially over the last week and I want to be sick. It’s the most odd feeling to think of this year.  January seemed like a fresh year…who would know five months later we would be…

She’s a Person

She’s not a number, not a file. She’s not another task on a list to be crossed off. She has feelings. She has concerns and cares- just me and just like you. It’s amazing to me a place dealing with such catastrophic issues can show such a lack of compassion to their patients. It all seems like business. This morning,…

Joshua came to the hospital, to wait with me, while my mama had surgery last week…. He brought his computer and worked while he was there. I was so glad to have him. He reminds me so much of Paul sometimes. The view from the surgery waiting room is really beautiful. On this day, high up in this tree, were…

An Update- March 22, 2013

Yesterday, found me thinking back to December.  Things seemed so normal- normal for us, anyway. Much has happened recently.  Things with my mom, and with my children.  Paul hasn’t been home more than a day- he was home for all of 18 hours yesterday. I guess I’m not complaining, I’m maybe just tired. I find myself, at this point, just…

My Mama- Update

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the…

Where I Am….

So many things happening and yet there is joy. It’s hard to explain– how can we cry and still have joy? Only with Him. May my God be glorified.
