When Life Gets You Down...

Hi Friends!  I have been absent from the world for the past week or so.  I've had some pretty scary health issues pop up that literally stopped me in my tracks.  For the first time in a week I can actually look at the computer screen without being dizzy, but not for too long yet...I won't go into a lot of details, but hopefully it's something I will be over very soon!  I hate not being able to get up and go to work & church and pretty much being waited on hand and foot...not cool!  I am, however, SO thankful for the many many blessings God continues to give me daily.  I just don't see how people live without Him.  My family changed their daily lives to make things easy on me; my parents have "adopted" Lexy, letting her spend the night every single night and getting her to and from school; my in-laws who take care of our other babies have been staying at our house, & my sweet hubby has taken time off from his "other love" baseball, so he could take care of me at nights!  God has blessed my family beyond measure and for that I am just SO thankful!  

I just wanted you all to know I haven't abandoned by e-mail, blog, or FB permanently, but just until I can get over this "stuff".  
I had some Really Fun St. Patrick's Day Centers ready and was hoping to have that up and posted for you all, BUT God had other plans.  Also, I was right in the middle of transportation centers, but wasn't able to get that finished either.  Boo!  I will get them done at some point.  Aaaannnd...I've had tons of e-mails about spring, plants, farm, & zoo...I HOPE to get to it all, but, y'all...I just don't know.  It kills me not to have it out there, but TIME!  AH! 

There!  Thanks for letting me rant...And, I couldn't NOT post a single picture with my post.  I have no school related pictures, but here is my precious baby boy at 4 months.  We did 5 month pics today so this is a *tad* old, but still so sweet!  

What are you most thankful for??


  1. So sorry to hear about your struggles. I will lift you up in prayer!

    1. family first is means a strong and prosperous nation builds up its infrastructure - roads, ports, power stations, airports and telecommunications. family first also has strong defence capabilities and is able to afford the latest and best equipment for its defence forces. Australia needs a political party which understands business and how markets work; how and why investment decisions are made; how real jobs are created; and that ‘barriers to entry’ to getting a job causes unemployment.

  2. What a precious little one! You take care of yourself, sweet Julie! Things can wait, for sure. We all adore you to pieces and understand. :)

  3. oh julie....i am sorry to hear you have not been feeling well...it is difficult for teachers, i think, to NOT be in charge! Please rest and don't worry about stuff to make for everyone...you will pick up where you left off when you can.

  5. I am so thankful for great friends like you! Praying for a speedy recovery and God's continued healing.

  6. Julie-I am so sorry that you are ill. Your story sounds a lot like mine did after I had my daughters. Took me 6 years and many doctors to find out what was wrong. Hope you feel better soon!

  8. I might not know you personally but I am praying for you. I also have had some of my health issues come up again this week and it has not been fun but remember:

    "For I the Lord your God hold your right hand; I am the Lord, Who says to you, Fear not; I will help you!" Isaiah 41: 13.

  26. Julie,
    Hope you feel more like yourself soon. I understand how difficult it can be to let others help you with day to day care of both yourself and your family, having fibromyalgia myself. Take care, enjoy your family. I will be sending prayers and good thoughts your way.
