What Next?

"When it rains, it pours!" "Murphey's Law" "The Straw that broke the Camel's back" Wow, is all I can say. My goal to write only about positive things, in order to view life in a more positve outlook. Here's a breakdown for the last 2 weeks.
-A week ago Wednesday as I was getting ready for church, I was over come with severe pain in my stomach area. I immediately started vomiting. When J got home he decided I needed to be in the hospital. Turns our I had 2 cist on my left ovary that burst!
-Two days later while getting my daughter ready I leaned across the bed and twisted my ankle. I heard and felt 2 LOUD cracks as I went down! I've never really broken a bone besides my toes that tend to jump out and hit furniture, so, I didn't really know what had happened. I put pressure on it, not to bad. Bending it? Out of the question. But B-man had a hair cut appointment. I sucked it up and drove him to get his hair cut. Then I went to Urgent Care with my mother. Turns out I dislocated a bone in my foot and it popped back in place causing lots of swelling and bruising. So, for over a week I've had a techno colored foot. Thankfully it just hurt the first couple of days. Now, it's fine.
-Then I started my monthly cycle. And month by month it is slowly getting more and more painful. I had surgery for this very reason last May. I think the adhesions are coming back. So, my doctors office had to medicate me.
-Present day! I'm dealing with Carpal Tunnel. It's so painful I can't get any relief. Now, the anxiety has kicked in and I'm having a lot of trouble controling it. This is terrible. But I will beat it! Tomorrow I've been directed to contact 3 different doctors! Prayers would be appreciated! We/I need answers, so I can go back to loving life.
My next post will be filled with everything positive. Thank you for puttering along with me! Have a great Spring Break!

Leightyn's Lifesong

This past Tuesday at MOPS a fellow MOPS Momma spoke to our Grand group. Missy is an awesome woman of God, mother, and wife. She has been given a message to share with other parents through her family's story "Leightyn's Lifesong". If ever a five year old girl could touch so many lives, her Leightyn has. This happy and energetic family of four was forever changed when tragedy struck August 7, 2010 and an aggressive cancer took this five year old suddenly.

You can read their story at
Missy's message is life changing. It's something we all know, but seldom take at face value. "Make time to make memories" Your dishes can wait while you play with your child. That TV show is not important! If tragedy struck, would you have any regrets? Leightyn lived a full and exciting life with her mom, dad, and little sister. She loved Jesus with all her heart. I personally never saw Leightyn without a smile on her face.
Read thier story. Love God. Make every moment count.

The Sneaky One

Ever since I have posted about my goal to stay positive, it seems like the world of Job is pressing down. I've been in the hospital with double-me-over gut wrenching pain and may or may not have broken my ankle (we'll know more when the swelling goes down) I know where it's coming from and I KNOW why!
I'm not seeking HIM the way I should, I'm not doing my bible study the way I should,and I'm focusing on worldly things. Just flat out! That mean ole' nasty devil is squirming his way in, just like the baby snake I found sneaking under my back door a couple of nights ago.
My daily verse today is "Set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on earth" Colossians 3:2 How completely true, I really needed to read and dwell on that today.
I'm incredibly thankful for such a wonderful husband and family who have been there for me tride and true. And as I end this evening on a positive I decided to take a picture of one of my Wee-Little-One's and our snuggle time. She may be two, but I still can't seem to let her cry it out, so she and I watched The Bachelor together!

Lazy, Crazy, Lovely Dayz

Hipocrit! Ha! I last posted about how it takes 10 positives to make up for 1 negative, and then I realized that I'm using this blog to just complain!!! I'm sure my intentions are pure but who wants to read negativity all the time? Not me! God has truely blessed my life so much that to relish and glorify Him, I need to appreciate the blessings that are right in front of me. And I'm thinking that if I want to have a record of memories, then I should probably RECORD those memories! So, I'm turning this blog around! Hope all 15 of my readers will stick with me!
This past week was 'Read Across America Week'. Each day my son's class got to dress up to celebrate the author Dr. Suess. Here is a picture of Crazy Sock Day. These cute 'socks' are actually a pair of MG's leggies from her newborn days! He loved it! And he also picked out that Hot Wheels shirt and tried to wear it the entire week! Pay no attention to the sloppy house or sloppy hair. B-man is getting his hair cut on Monday and well, my house never stays clean for to long.

Have a Fantastic and Rainy Weekend!!!
