WOW! A month has gone by since I’ve had a chance to sit down and write! An entire month! It feels as though I blinked my eyes and March disappeared.
So far in March:
We spoke at a week long missions festival AND I over came my fear of public speaking! I *pause for affect* actually began to enjoy talking in front of people.
We were blessed to have two new girls come into our lives and our home then saddened to see them both run away.
We drove 9 hours in one day so two of our girls could have family visits. (Bonus: we got to a LONG over due visit with one of our former girls. Also got to see our friends that left us for another part of the state.).
I have been covered in vomit, that was not my own, 4 separate times on 3 different weekends by 2 of my children. Not a record I EVER want to break.
I have been trapped in a room with five awesome ladies and by the hair of our chinny-chin-chins we were able to solve the clues and “escape.” (For the record none of us actually have hair on our chins!)
I have spent seven hours putting box braid extensions in one of my girls hair.
I am working on two different guest blog posts for two separate sites -by “working” I actually mean “thinking” about what I am going to write.
I spent almost a week knocked out with the flu.
Easter was spent on the couch with three very sick kiddo’s.
Our Little Miss spent 6 hours at 2 hospitals having 5 different tests run on her kidneys and bones (more about that in a later post).
I sent off the first two chapters of my book to the editor!
I have been dealing with things from my past that have been rearing their ugly heads. God and I have been wrestling with the best way to work through it.
We got to watch one of our girls bust her butt to get a job, enroll in college, and earn more high school credits than the school expected. We’ve also watched her get mad and swear she was done and going to give up. By the grace of God she has not given up yet.
I have mourned for a friend who had to say goodbye to the woman who raised her.
We have been blessed by ladies in the church who have brought us meals.
Every day we are more and more thankful for the work God is doing on our health through Plexus.
I have been encouraged, humbled and inspired by the words in John 8:31-59.
Maybe it is because my fever has broke or perhaps it is the Plexus talking either way I cannot wait to see what God brings us for the month of April!
