Life


 I really don’t have much to say today. He’s sick. Some days are better than others. The girls have been really helpful to me lately. Thank you to Betty, Ashley and Lisa for pitching in with the kids this week while we’ve taken care of some things. It was really good to see my F-I-L today, too. We’ve had some pretty good medical service experiences this week. Our nurse navigator, Lorie, is forever coming through for us, thank God. Trent has slept a lot this week. The pain takes the Mickey right out of him. I’m glad he’s resting, but I can’t help but feel like we’re moving into a different phase in all of this. That realization hurts a little. With this realization has also come some real straight talk about what life might look like for the kids and I in the future. As hard as those talks are they need to be had, and it gives me comfort knowing what Trent wants for us. I haven’t been able to beat the boys out of bed this week, but it’s been ok. I’m getting my workouts in when and where I can – yoga Monday, my house – join us.😊 It feels good to know that even though I’ve handed all of this over to Him, I can still control what I eat and how I treat my body – and things are coming along nicely, I must say.
ButiYoga, ladies. Your welcome. If nothing else, listen to her talk about the milkshake. It will change your midsection instantly. 

I think these pictures are ridiculous, that’s why they suck.🤓 You get the idea. I’m smaller. Here’s proof.

I did miss a doctor’s appointment last week and I need to take care of a couple of things for Lily, but other than that things are ok. Other than, you know, the Thing. But we’re staying prayed up and close to each other. That combination makes all the difference for us, as you can imagine. Gavin understands a lot more than he used to and we’re looking into a emotional support dog for Lily. Coley is totally Coley – blowing us away at every turn. Sabrinna is growing up before my eyes and it’s a beautiful thing. 

We had a really great girls’ night Friday, complete with chocolate cake memes and swam very nearly without incident Saturday night. Thank you to all of our lovely hosts. I’m finding myself drawing closer to people I wouldn’t have imagined being close to a few years back, and I like it…a lot. He knows what I need and who can give it to me. I’m so thankful for that. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching and it feels like such a contradiction, but I know who I am better now than I ever have. Funny. I mean, it makes sense and it seems like a high price to pay to “know one’s self” but the ease that I am beginning to feel in my own skin is invaluable. I wish it wouldn’t have taken this long, but such is life. Talk about growing up. Jeez. 

Anyways, thank you to all of you who really get your hands dirty with us. It ain’t easy, but we so appreciate it. Take a yoga class if you get a free hour, or even better – make time. Watch less tv and listen to more music. Always keep a song in your heart. Snuggle up if you got ’em!

Oh yeah – buy a stinkin’ Gibson t-shirt! ❤️🙌🏾
