Thank you Lord

Wow, talk about Slacker McSlackerson.... I haven't written on here in a very long time. Halloween was the last time I think.

I got a little discouraged when I had to make it private. And now I am not sure what I can even write about....

Either way, it's Christmas Eve. Santa comes tonight. And there is so much to do and I am incredibly excited.

There is just one problem.

Both my kids are coughing like crazy, didn't sleep a single wink last night and there are signs of RSV all over the daycare.

But, with that.... I am thankful. So very thankful.

As you may have heard, I found out Sunday that an old friend from high school passed away. I hadn't seen or talked to her since school. But it hit me like a ton of bricks.
She had a newborn 9 day old baby boy. And it was so sudden.
She was shopping and showing off the baby and getting Santa pictures and went into a bathroom and never came out. A blood clot.

That is crazy.... Life is so dang short. And unpredictable.

I went to the funeral yesterday and cried for an hour... gave the family hugs and came back to my cubicle at work.

Today I am exhausted from being up all night with sick children, frustrated a little by not having everything finished and I'm annoyed at having to work while everyone else is home.
But also, I am so thankful.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a mother to my children, to be healthy.... for them to have only a small cough to battle with.
Thank you for my job, my husband and everything that I have in my life.

Merry Christmas everyone. Happy Birthday Jesus.

Glad you're back!

So sad to hear about Lindsey. Blood clots are so scary and can take people away so suddenly. I have a friend in El Paso right now who is having blood thinner injections in her stomach for a clot that was found in her leg. And our neighbor across the street just went through the same thing for 2 that were found in her lungs. It's really terrifying. I'm so sorry for Lindsey's family and her little boy.
