Moving forward and letting it all go…

I’ve told Jason for months that I was dreading March coming. It is one of my least favorite month- I’m not really sure why- except that we seem to always get sick during March. Which, if you know me, is a really, really big deal. I hate sickness and dread it with a big passion. Well, this has been the month to top them all off- now I know why I hate March so much (even though part of this spilled over into April). It all started on a Friday evening, when I learned that someone who I have known my whole life and was one of the main people in my life growing up- a parental figure, was killed in a motorcycle accident. This was shocking and pretty devastating. That same evening we were having out of town  company coming in to stay with us- which is something we haven’t done at all since being married, so that was quite new to us. That ended up being such a huge blessing as it acted as a distraction during the first few days of shock.  About a week later my daughter went to a birthday party and caught a really horrible stomach bug. I will probably never let my kids go to a birthday party again 😉 She was sick with throwing up for the first time in her life and it was horrible. She was so sick I had 20150331_103515to take her in to the doctor because she would not stop throwing up. This was not the 24 hour flu- this was the 6 day flu- where she was till throwing up at the funeral- that was a fun experience. The day she started feeling better from the stomach bug- her nose started to run, and she was sick for the next 4 days with a cold. Some of the days she was horribly miserable! She was final20150407_102533ly feeling better and guess what?! The baby got the cold for the first time in his life. This resulted in 5 nights of me sleeping downstairs with him, because he was so miserable.  During the same time, our water heater went out—and to top it all off- I lost my job that I have had working from home for the past two years. Yes, this was a horrible month. I was starting to lose hope and couldn’t even remember what normal felt like… until a few days ago. When God demonstrated, as he always does, that he really is always on my side and not against me. This served as a reminder to me- my verse for the new year…  God ‘s plans are to prosper my life, not to harm me. Even though things may seem hard- I need to remember God will not give me more then I can handle. Even though this last month has been horrible- I need to look at the bright side of things. I still have so much to be thankful for, but most importantly I am moving forward and letting all the hurt and struggle go…

  1. I’m so sorry friend! Sickness is not fun at all, ever. Those two photos of your precious babies are heart breaking! 🙁
