Free Day to Sew!!!!
Our family is getting very close to being back to normal, whatever normal is these days. The past two weeks have been filled with heartbreak :( Between losing such a good friend to a hit and run driver, sweet Elijah being diagnosed with cancer, DD#3 suffering a "Heart event" while giving birth to Tater Tot, not to mention my knee blow out, Hubby's back blow out, lighting striking one of our AC's, chicken pox, and even AJ the beagle got into the act by spraining her front shoulder.
I can tell you with absolute certainty God has laid his hands on our family. When I though I couldn't lift one more toddler, wipe one more nose, load one more little one into a car seat, hit the floor running after the grands at 6:15AM each morning not falling into bed until the wee hours of the morning he has given me the strength to do more than I ever thought I was capable of. He has been by our side each hour of the day, he has lifted our spirits and physical strenght.
Through God's grace our DD#3 survived a dropped heart rate of 30 so many times over a three day period , her enlarged heart and fluids surrounding her heart are back to normal. Are we just lucky? Heck NO, God and ONLY God could have seen to all of this :)
We are blessed.... Too many times I take for granted God is with us. Too many days I get busy doing this that and the other, I don't take the time to give thanks and praise him for his gifts. He never forgets us :) I need to do better, I will do better, I must do better!!
