update on life

I'm not sure what to write, but I want to write.  Have you felt that urge?  Well, that's what I'm feeling, so here goes...

Hannah is on the mend.  Hubby will take her on Monday to have another x-ray and see if her fracture has healed. If it has - Ugh, I pray it has! - then the splint can come off.  In her other medical news, she's caught another cold, virus, or whatever, so she's on another antibiotic.  As a result of the cold, virus, or whatever, her ears are draining green yuck.  Yes. Another ear infection.  However, since she has tubes now, ear infections won't continue to affect her hearing, and the infection will not cause her any pain.  For that, she gets drops in her ears in the morning and at night. 

I'm just saying, this had better clear things up with her!  I know plenty of mommas right now that are sick of sick kids!  This winter has been particularly difficult when it comes to sickness. 

Beth is well.  She's growing up fast.  Maturing.  She's amazing.  And she's scary.  Six is scary. I'm praying constantly that she will grow like Jesus.  "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Luke 2:52  Emphasis on the in favor with God.  I'm anxious to see her come to know the Lord.  However, I know all that's in His time and according to His will and plan.  And her free will.  Dang free will.

My husband is awesome. His new job is good, and he's staying healthy, fit, and active with me.  He really is my partner in this life. I couldn't ask for a better one!

And me.  I'm good.  Learning to say no to those things that don't matter.  Right now, I'm enjoying my winter break.  Kids keep texting me and the debate coach wanting to go to a tournament this weekend; however, it is not happening.  I have said no.  I'm enjoying this me time.  Besides, they just better get used to no more speech and debate because after this year it is done.  Both me and the other coach feel our lives pulling in other directions.  It's time for a new season.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven."

Right now, I'm trying to feel out what the new season of my life will involve.  It's a journey.  One that I'm happy to embark on with my savior.

I love trying new things.  One new thing I'm so happy to have tried and then adopted into my life is running.  I've done two 5Ks this week out at a local park.  It feels good.  I feel good.  So glad to have that in my life.  It has inspired my forget-me-not for this post (found at My first 5K - THANKS!).  Enjoy!

Today's forget-me-not: Do not stop until you have it! (It being whatever you need or want in life.)


  1. Praying that you get good news with Hannah! And loving all your posts....so glad you're putting you first! And super jealous that you're running! I hope to one day get back to it!

  2. I hope everything goes well. I am in dire need of motivation to find the "fit me" again - it feels like it's been so long I don't know where to start. Love that you enjoy running - hoping to find something so I don't stop...
    Many hugs, always!
