My Moments to Breathe

An odd day I guess

Today I have been feeling blue. For selfish reasons. A family friend passed away from ALS last night and I talked to him often about our fights. Now his fight is over and we all rejoice that he is in the Lords hands and has no more suffering. But, we all will miss him and I will miss my inspiration. He never lost his faith or he never once complained about his life. I looked up to him and the way he fought so well and really in quite good spirits. I am glad I had the privilege to know him. And I am glad that now he has had the privilege to know heaven.

I have still been feeling pretty good, but today I was moving a little slower. I am just glad I still did a few things that needed to be done. Including some laundry. This was the first time I did laundry since I coughed up blood and I would be lying if I didn't say that I was nervous. PHEW no coughing and no blood. So glad and a huge sigh of relief.  Luckily, I still have a husband who cares enough to make sure I am not over doing it and doesn't mind getting the laundry for me. Thanks Jeremy! 

I am trying to learn ahead of time (by making a list...SURPRISE...) what all needs to be done in a certain time and the longer I have to do it the slower I can go and easier on my body it is. But there is never enough time, ever, right?!

Laila had another great day at school today...really just a great day in general. She even took a nap with Mommy. A little snuggle bug (she read me a book and kissed my cheek goodnight before she fell asleep, could the little girl get much sweeter!?) 

I guess my mind is really ready to write too much but I knew it had been awhile and just felt like having something on my blog for the week. I promise I will get things back to more normal and will start to write a little more and the things I know I need to write about. But tonight I am gonna sit back after a yummy dinner and just watch the Tigers hopefully clinch the series. And continue with that list...


  1. Glad you got some stuff done! Sorry you are blue.

  2. I for one look forward to your writing, but you do not have to promise to do any more writing than you feel like doing. You don't need to stress about it. It will all come off your fingers to your keyboard when it wants to. In the meantime, enjoy your sweet little girl, watch all the baseball you want and let Jeremy be in charge of the laundry and he can always ask for your help if he needs it.

    I will miss Steve, too. Go Tigers. XOXOXO for you, Jer and little Miss Laila.
