Battles & Blessings


  • My mother has been in the hospital all week due to unexplained, long-term vertigo.  She is better than she was, but there are a ton of tests in her future.
  • My PPA kicked my butt a couple of days this week.  Little things can send me into a tailspin.
  • Trying not to blow our budget, even though I was stuck in a super Wal-Mart for two and a half hours while they fixed my car. Not so successful there. . .
  • Energy.  Even when I am well-rested, I can barely keep up with Miles some days.
  • Mommy-guilt reared its ugly head again.  Nothing new there.


  • Evenings spent with my family, cuddling, watching television, working on projects, or simply being in the same space.  Positively beautiful.
  • Branson with our core family/friend/Tribe/Kumpania this weekend.  And beautiful weather to enjoy it.
  • Being reminded of a favorite prayer that I hadn't thought of in awhile.  Quite inspirational.
  • A husband who loves me unconditionally, and protects me no matter what.
  • A son who loves me unconditionally, and whose laugh makes my heart feel full.
  • Projects.  And the beginnings of Christmas shopping.  And other me-time activities. 
  • Lunch yesterday with Andrea and her darling children.  Absolutely what I needed.
  • A renewed confidence that I can continue each day, even when it feels like I'm slipping.
  • Long conversations with my husband.
  • A restored sense of peace and contentment.  I am re-finding my balance.

  1. Don't let my battle become one of yours! You have enough to worry about and like you said, it IS getting better...we will get it all figured out!
    Give our boy a hug and a snug and let him know we love and miss him! Can't wait to see you all around Thanksgiving!

    Love you guys!
