    This week has been really good for me! Monday and Tuesday I was able to talk through some things with my best friend and it really helped me move past some things and make peace with some things. The rest of the week I am by myself in the office which...
  • God is so good!

    • 5 Comments
    God is so good!! No changes with the blister that I discovered. No changes is good. My surgeon also said it looks really good to her and she isn’t concerned. Of course I’m still concerned a bit and may be until it goes away but I don’t...
  • Prayers please

    I have been so very blessed to have healed so well from my surgery. Then today I found a spot that I believe is skin necrosis. This is a very common complication and I’ve been so cautious. I’ve got to send a picture to my surgeon in the morning...
  • Today I’ve had peace

    • 4 Comments
    Today I’ve had peace about what lies ahead. It’s a feeling I haven’t had about my future in quite a long time. I worked almost a full day yesterday and decided to even work today too. Even though I was exhausted when I got home I committed...
  • I had an ah hah moment today

    • 8 Comments
    I had an “ah hah” moment today. One that I really needed. I’ve fought my emotions so hard. On one hand I feel like I’ve got to deal with the loss of my husband and on the other I feel like the moment I do I have truly given up...
  • Today was a better day!

    Yesterday was rough. I went the entire day with no pain meds and paid for it today. However, I worked 6 consecutive hours today!! I made it through today and I’m still committed to my marriage. I listened to a sermon today by Priscilla Shier and...
  • Back to work

    • 8 Comments
    Today I attempted to go back to work. It brings lots of emotions. I worked 3 hours to take a 6 hour nap. Makes me a little angry with my husband that I have half of the normal recovery time because of choices he made for our family. I trusted him completely...
  • Another day done

    • 6 Comments
    One of the hardest things I’ve had to do is to keep doing life regardless of what’s going on around me. In the beginning I just couldn’t. I didn’t know how to do Day to day life without my other half. It felt like learning to walk...
  • Forgiveness is like an onion

    • 6 Comments
    Forgiveness. It’s something I’ve thought about quite a bit lately. Most of my anger in recent months has been with my in laws. They’ve been the hardest for me to forgive. Every time I get to a place of forgiveness I find myself needing...
  • Focused on healing

    • 5 Comments
    Yesterday was very active for me. I had a follow up with my pcp for my low bp and low heart rate during and after surgery. Anesthesia always does this to me but it almost created a huge complication for me after surgery as it was a micro vascular surgery...
  • Journaling helps

    • 5 Comments
    I’ve forgotten how much journaling helps me gather thoughts and feelings. No changes here today. Boredom is killing me though! They used my abdomen to reconstruct my breast so I have a total of 4 surgery sites that are all stitched up. Standing...
  • And life goes on

    Its been so very long since I’ve written here but I’ve been told that I need to journal again. So much has changed and yet so much is the same. I had my breast surgery on the 18th. Recovery is tough. I have healed wonderfully and surgery went...
  • I'm back!!

    • 3 Comments
    It feels like forever since I've posted here! The boys and I were sick for what seems like forever with a stomach bug. It was AWFUL!! I ended up missing almost 2 full weeks of work from it. Needless to say, I haven't done any dares or even read...
  • Going to be the best year ever!

    It's been a while since I've journaled! It's also been a while since I've done a dare or even read the chapter. I took some time off for Christmas and New Years and just enjoyed those around me. I've also had a lot of emotions that...
  • Love forgives.

    • 7 Comments
    I'm pretty certain I still have things to forgive my spouse for since I have found myself angry at him more lately. However, I think that I am holding on to unforgiveness of myself more than anything else. I am super angry with me. I allowed another...
  • Doctors, attorneys and kids.

    The last few days have been crazy. We've been back at my parents helping out and I'm going crazy! I know that I can not move back in with my parents after this. If they move in with me at least we will be on different levels of the house. They...
  • Protecting my marriage

    • 9 Comments
    Shortly after I posted earlier I read my chapter anyways. Today is on protecting my marriage. At this point I'm not sure how to protect my marriage or even what from. I can't protect it anymore than what I'm already trying. The only thing...
  • I just don't want to.

    I didn't read my chapter yesterday and honestly didn't even think about it until late last night. Work was so very busy with people out and then I spent the evening with the boys just trying to get out and do something fun. (Which we never get...
  • Love is a choice

    • 12 Comments
    Today's challenge was scary for me. It was to communicate to your spouse that you love them no matter what they do. I text (I know I'm not suppose to Tim) and told him that I love him regardless of what happens and that I always will. I also told...
  • Christ is love

    I didn't have a chance to journal here yesterday but I did read the chapter and complete the dare. The Love Dare has been challenging to say the least. I get very frustrated still with my husband but each time I do God reminds me of what he puts up...
  • Love is impossible

    Today's chapter is about how love is impossible without God. In looking back at the last several years of my relationship with God and my marriage God has put up with a lot from me. Before my husband I was seeing a man who I didn't know was also...

    No Love Dare for me today. We spent most of the night trying to charge my dad's oxygen concentrator in the car. We had to call 911 when we couldn't keep it charged and we ran out of back up tanks. Thankfully the fire department brought us another...

    Today's dare is not one that I can complete as I will not be staying at home tonight. It is to make dinner for my spouse and to really try and get to know them better as I did when we were first dating. Reading through the chapter go me a bit as I...

    My dad is home and doing much better today. My sister and I spent the night at my parent's house to help and I am pooped! I have not read my chapter today and I hate to say that I'm just not sure I can today. Yesterday I had an appointment with...
  • Praying for my spouse

    • 7 Comments
    Today's chapter on praying for your spouse really got me the last round and also did again today. I'm finding myself complaining a bit about my spouse again and at a loss on how to even pray for him or our relationship. I want to pray great breakthrough...
