Will It Ever End?

 This morning I ventured out for a little more pillow case fabric. My plan for the day was to finish up the pile of girl pillow cases I had sat aside yesterday so we could enjoy Sunday dinner then move on for the next two "Free" days to sew, sew, sew.
 All plans went out the window when I returned to my car and checked my cell phone. Humm, 5 calls from DD#3, that's odd. Holy Moly, she was hysterical. :) Mommy had left Blake strapped in his swing while she ran to the bathroom. Seconds later she hears him cry out. She found him laying on the floor at his swing, Kara bending over him saying "Baby you fall down?" BE CALM!!!!!!! Load the kids up and head to the ER I will meet you there. He seemed fine to me once I got to them but you just never know. ER was pretty quick to triage him, the nurse agreed he looked good. After 2 hours wait the pediatrician on call agreed, Blake would be just fine. His advice was for Mommy to calm down, these things do happen, Mommy's do have to use the bathroom sometimes. Kara must not be left alone with the little guy as toddlers are thinking they are helping Mommy take care of the baby when she is out of sight. This morning I aged an additional 10 years. I felt sure God would protect our little guy as I flew down the highway to meet DD#3....and he did :) THANK YOU GOD!!!!
I arrived home to this in the driveway. Oh My. The pile is so close to the garage door that until I spread all this mulch we won't be able to open the door. The pile is so wide the Jeep can't be moved until I spread all of this mulch. I wonder how long it will take for this "small" load of mulch to be relocated to the garden and grands play area?

Do you ever have days that you just want to throw up your hands and say I give up? I am there.....I came in the door and called it a day. I am feeling a little energy coming back by late this afternoon but I am still not up to tackling much of anything.

Piles of fabric, piles of wood can all wait :)

I had a little talk with God on the way home from the hospital. I couldn't help but smile as we had our chat. Buddy I know you don't give us more than we can handle. I know you will give me the strength to do what must be done. I know you are right beside me in case I stumble but.....If you testing my faith forget it!! I am with you all the way just as you are with me :)


  1. I've read a quote on Facebook the other day, "Lord, I know you wouldn't give me more than I can handle but why do you trust me so much??"

    I'm glad the lo is OK!!

  2. You need some strong teenage boys who want to earn some money to move that mulch...while you direct them...or you could end up with that leg in trouble again. With all who need you right now you can't afford an accident. Glad all is well.

  3. Oh- How very. very scary. It is amazing what little kids can live through and not be affected at all- meanwhile we are freaking out. God has protected your sweet little one!
    Have fun spreading mulch!!! (ugh) xo Diana

  4. Oh Debby, you've had your fair share of stress lately... So glad the little one is ok!! Hugs!!
