Your Days

16 Jul

Tonight we had the chance to celebrate one of our best friend, gracie, 5th birthday. We were with friends, enjoying others and watching a lot of kid fun happening! Han knows how to throw a party, in fact she has helped me pull of throwing parties for my kids the past two years because to her everyone needs a party! It was great to be out with friends as a family.

A friend inquired about our days and how they are different. I figure if she wonders, you might too! I love to go to bed and really enjoy a good half hour in the morning to lay and pray and ponder what the day holds. Sometimes I doze but most the time just lay. Once I have made the plunge into the day I join adam for a cup of coffee ( I used to love this, now it doesn’t taste as good). We enjoy reading and quiet time generally with paige around, she is our early riser. Every days events are different with kids, but generally on the go somewhere. Twice I week I have labs and go early am as I usually need platelets. The heat has slowed me a bit but trying to find a balance. There are plenty of projects to be done around home, but my main priorities are my husband and kids! I am blessed to have extended family that desire to travel to see us. We have enjoyed lots of visits. I am able to normal things like dishes and laundry, which is nice I like contributing to our homelife. I enjoy baths and bedtime routine. I generally am exhausted by days end. I try to be awake to spend some time with Adam but each day is different.

The biggest adjustment for me is the disconnect between my mind and body. I often feel like life should be normal I should be able to work out, carry my kids, give piggy backs, but my body says no. Lately the most consistent issue has been headaches. Our days are enjoyable. Adam has made life feel normal. Thankful for time together.

Psalm 16
5 The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7 I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.
10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.
11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

    I am glad that there is some joy in your journey. You continue to encourage so many. So glad you are home and enjoying daily activity. Think and pray for you all often. Praying for a reconnect of your mind and body!

    praying for your ‘new normal’ that it will feel much like the old normal with some limits. Thrilled to see David and spend some time with him as well. I love how appreciative you are of even some of the smallest things. Love you and pray daily for you – sometimes hourly! sending love and hugs.

    “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus; just to take Him at His word.” I see you living the words to this hymn, Allie. Love you so very much.
