Okay…I can’t walk without excrutiating pain, but there are blessings to be found today.
Blessing #1–My mother-in-law helped me today by taking me to the doctor, to the hospital for x-rays and to the pharmacy.
Blessing #2–My mother-in-law made me dinner and got the kids ready for bed before she had to go back home.
Blessing #3–I have friends and family praying for me.


Give me a padded room

I’m a danger to myself. I fell down the stairs at church last night. It hurt!
I don’t know what happened; the next thing I knew I was at the bottom of the stairs, my left ankle twisted and landing hard on my right foot. I somehow managed to get home. I put my feet up and put ice on both. Today I still could barely walk so I went to the doctor.
I am waiting for results from xrays of my left ankle (which I fractured last December) and my right foot. I have a brace on my left ankle and an ace bandage on my right foot.
I’m pathetic. 29 years old and I can’t even walk down the stairs safely. Need I remind you that I fracture my right ankle when I was 13 by, yes, falling down the stairs. And then last December fractured my left ankle by, yes, again…falling down the stairs.
Where are the straight jacket and padded room?!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month
(Originally published by Nattie on September 30, 2003)
This cause is near and dear to my friend Dana. You’ll see why when you read about her.
This cause is also near and dear to my heart. In 1999 my mother-in-law discovered a lump in one of her breasts during a self exam. She went to her gynecologist who scheduled her for a mammogram. Then she had a breast ultrasound and a needle biopsy.


My life

You’ve got to keep a sense of humor about these things. If not you’d go crazy.
* I think Jonathan has a girlfriend. There is a little girl in speech therapy with him. I think she has been batting her big brown eyes at him and flipping her curly hair because all Jonathan could talk about this morning was seeing the little girl.
~ The other day I had to explain that boys have a pee-pee and girls don’t. The conversation went something like this…
Jonathan: Mommy, do you have a pee-pee?
Mommy: No, I don’t. I’m a girl. Girls don’t have pee-pee’s.
Jonathan: Sissy have a pee-pee?
Mommy: No, sissy is a girl. She doesn’t have a pee-pee.
Jonathan: I don’t want to have a pee-pee.
About this time Sissy wanted to look at said pee-pee.


Good reads

Gone–this blog is always a great read, but todays entry really struck me. Go read it now!
Turn off the pump, she’s full was another good read with some contemplative thoughts and just plain silly ones too.
My Soul Sis had some great links and info on Rosh Hashanah.
Off to bed now.
I screamed at the kids for over an hour to pick up their toys. They are now in bed and guess who got to pick up the toys?!

While the rest of our country pauses to remember the bombing of Pearl Harbor, 66 years ago this morning, I feel compelled to point out that it has been half a year since, in the early hours, we said goodbye to our Nattie.
I feel as though I should be able to express myself more thoroughly, but today–as most days–words fail to keep up with my thoughts.

Natalie, I know you have enjoyed your first six months in heaven. Why couldn’t you wait for me? Love you–Daddy

My testimony

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

(Originally published by Nattie on September 29, 2003)
I shared this on a group I’m on…thought I’d share it with you. I’ll give you the abridged version of my testimony. :o)
I first prayed the “sinner’s prayer” when I was six, but I say my faith wasn’t really my own until I was 24 or 25. In the meantime I attended church, went to a Christian school, studied the Bible, etc. I had a storehouse of knowledge, but I didn’t truly understand the nature of God. I was totally willing to abandon God if I saw something outside of the narrow path that I wanted. Usually it was a relationship with someone who wasn’t a Christian.
For reasons I won’t go into, I felt totally unloved and “looked for love in all the wrong places” like the song goes. I hit a wall when I became pregnant at the age of 23. Then I had to care for a baby too, and I knew I couldn’t do it alone.
There has been more growth in my life in the past five years than the whole 18 years before. God has been beside me through a marriage to a non-Christian. He has been with me through three years of dealing with depression.
God is faithful even when we are faithless. (loosely translated 2 Timothy 2:13).

The Rules: Storytime

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

(Originally published by Nattie on September 29, 2003)
There are some rules for story time–
* Always go potty before story time, not during.
* Wait in line nicely to get your name tag.
* Don’t eat the name tag because the ink will bleed on your face.
* No, you cannot wash your hands again. They are not dirty.
* Sit on your piece of rug nicely.
* Don’t eat the velcro off the flannel graph pieces.
* Yes, you can sit on my lap.
* Listen to the story.
* Don’t look at the story time lady like she is insane.
* Yes, your sister can sit on my lap.
* Quit hitting your sister.
* If you don’t stop hitting your sister we are going home.
* If you don’t stop pushing your brother we aer going home.
* Put the stickers that the story time lady gives you on your hands or clothes; not on books, walls, car windows.
* Don’t make mom carry your 10 books, her seven books, and your three videos out to the car while trying to hold two story time activities, a coloring page that you had to bring and the jacket that you left on a library table.
