I will remember you...

I have experienced loss multiple times during my 23years here. No loss so far has hit me this hard. My great grandmother passed away this past weekend. She was an amazingly strong and stoic woman. She had been a great role model for me in many aspects, but mostly she showed me unconditional love which I will always be greatful for. I know how lucky I am that my children have been able to meet their great-great grandmother. I will always keep her memory alive by telling my children all the great things about her.

As a kid I use to sit in Church with my Great grandma and my grandma moore and listen to the Pastor ramble on for what seemed like hours. There was nothing to do, and I had no idea at the time what the Pastor was talking about,so I would sit and rub the wrinkles on her hands. Always trying to smooth out the age on her soft fair skin. She sang in the Church choir which helped me with my love for God and music. Now as I think back on my time with her I am comforted by these Bible passages she had marked in her own Bible.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalms 48:14

He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and it's evils are gone forever. Revelation 21:4

Just say Thank You

We spend a lot of time teaching our children manners. Saying please, thank you and excuse me are just a few of the things I remind my boys to say almost daily. I find it disturbing that so many adults lack simple manners. How often do we do nice things for our friends and they forget to say two simple words? I don't expect anything from my friends, because the majority of them are not the kind of people you can depend on. So for the few friends I have the are always there to help and do more than just take take take.... I have decided to do a little special something for them this holiday season. I want to send them a little extra something with a thank you card to let them know that I really appreciate their friendship. It always makes me feel good to know that I have those couple friends that do worry about how I am doing, and how our boys are. The kind of friends that listen intently when I talk and truely care about what is going on in my life. There is just never enough ways to say thank you to them.

Baby Maker

A few posts ago I was against having another child. Well I'm 16weeks preggo with our third now. This pregnancy has been rough so far, to say the least. I have so much pressure on me to have a little girl, but to be honest the chances of that are slim. My morning sickness has gone well into the second trimester now. The only way I'm keeping anything down is with the help of medicine. Then I get a call from my doctors office letting me know my lab results were back. I have hypothyroidism and have to take synthoid once a day. My thyroid is underactive and is not making enough thyroxine. Synthroid is suppose to be a replacement for the hormones that my body isn't naturally making. I've been looking at symptoms for hypothyroidism, I thought everything I was feeling was because of the pregnancy. My husband is worried about how this will all effect me. Right now I'm just trying to be patient and learn as much as I can about this disease and how to live with it.
