Because I signed up for NaBloPoMo, so I have been trying to force my way through and post something everyday. It has been really hard and I have been tempted everyday to throw in the towel and give up. I'm glad I haven't. Not because I have had some kind of miraculous breakthrough, but because without this blog I would be sitting here wallowing in self pity and believing that I am alone in my battles. I am not. I am not alone.
I just spent the past hour answering all the comments I have received this week and I know this one thing beyond all doubt. I am not alone. Every single person that commented was without fail supportive and uplifting. They told me how my words, my pitiful attempt to just put something up on this blog everyday, touched their hearts. They offered prayers for me and my hubby. They gave me much needed support and confirmation that I am not the only one who deals with these negative thoughts and emotions. I want to say Thank you.
Thank you so much for coming here and reading my words and then taking that extra minute to let me know you care.
Earlier this week I also mentioned that my hubby was having a procedure to try to help with his chronic pain. The doctor's told us that if it worked we should know within the first few days. Well, it didn't. It was a terrible week for him, lots of additional pain and discomfort to endure with no pay off. I know the doctor will try to push us to try this again, but we won't be (unless hubby changes his mind, this has been known to happen). It's time to move to the next step, whatever that is. We would appreciate your prayers about this. It is hard to know what direction to take.
OH! Guess what?? I have been nominated for this:
I will tell you more about it later this week (see, that way you have to come back to visit me! Sneaky!!) but I do want to say thank you to Rhye over at Seven Seas of Rhye. I love her blog and it is an honor to be nominated by her! Now, come back tomorrow for more info, ok?? :)
Oh! Guess what else???? I got an email from Greg, over at The Falling Skies Blog informing me that I have moved from "guest writer" to "Contributing Author" (in caps) on the blog! I am so excited about this! (You can tell by my over use of the exclamation point...well, maybe you can't. I have a problem with exclamation over use!!!!!) What does this mean? It means that when I submit something to the blog it will get special consideration. It means that I have an open invite to write and rant about one of my favorite shows! How cool is that!?!
And now, how about a picture or two from my world? Okay, you talked me into it! Here you go!
|random old gas sign out at my mom's place. My dad had a habit of collecting the strangest stuff!|
|Just me playing with my camera. I really like how it came out!|
|What ya doing in there Pakita?? Nothin' momma, what you doin'??|
Well, I think that's it for Sunday. All and all not a bad day, if I do say so myself. Now, I just have to work up the energy to do some laundry! See you tomorrow!
