 Today I am...

Watching a mouse die a slow and, very likely, terrible death in my kitchen trash can Cuddling a little boy in soft fleece jammies who does not feel well Waiting till Dave comes home so I can take little Noe in to the doctor Clearing my calendar for the next few days due to sick Noe Hoping that I am not up every.single.hour with Noe like I have been the last two nights Craving comfort food Wondering how much more can possibly go wrong with the van we have only had for a week and a half Crying alot, learning alot, grieving alot due to some personal disappointments Feeling an uncharacteristic peace in the face of hurts. Out of character for me, not so for God. It is He in me which gives me the peace and strength Growing up Missing my out of state family Feeling comforted by the apple spice and hazelnut candles that I am burning So proud of my K for how hard he works at every little thing Looking at the paper up on my fridge which K wrote his name on all by himself for the first time this morning. Tired Laughing at the mistake I made for supper last night when I put left over waffle batter over my chicken, potatoes, and stuffing instead of the leftover gravy. It was so gross. I almost puked when I realized what I had done. I told Dave the gravy he had made did not keep very well over night in the fridge. He said his was fine. Wondering how long I will keep my gall bladder in light of the large gall stone I have and the horrible way I have felt at night Really proud of Dave Praying for this family Drinking alot of coffee (is that bad for the gall bladder?) :) **Edited with update - just googled it and found out coffee is GOOD for reducing gall stones!! Pouring another cup. Comfortable and warm

So sorry you are having a rough day! So bummed this means you won't make it to Trunk or Treat. I love you!

This morning I heard "Press On" on FLR and immediately was back at the concert. I got chills and teared up. After reading your post I think it may be a good song for you today.

I wish I had time to bring you potato soup with bacon & cheese. Here it is in virtual world. I give it to you. Sorry it is not as warm as I would like it to be.

Did I mention I love you?

Kristy said...

I will be lifting you up in prayer today. I love you too.

Just a bit of nonsense: my word verification is "devou", it just feels like they left off the "t".

Praying for you today...we've all been there, are lists are just all a little different...

PS - dumb mice.

Sara@ Butterville said...

I hope little Noe gets better soon, and you are able to get some rest. You are the third person I've heard now that has gallbladder problems. I have kidney stones...what is going on in our systems?
Sometimes I wish I could clean it out like I clean the toilet or take a shower...you Know? Wash all the crude out.
So glad you have some nice smells to pick you up. We lit candles last night, something about the flicker and aroma just makes things a little bit better.

You sound so tired and worn out, poor sweet girl! I'll be praying for you and Noe, for rest and good health and for the van to behave and the mice to stay outside where they belong! Love you lots! ~Dawna

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Aw, Wendi. First off I am praying for you right now, that you would feel His peace even though you are going through some hard situations. I'm so sorry.

Secondly...yay K! So proud that he wrote his name by himself.

Did you salvage your dinner? That is too funny! And totally something I would have done...I've dumped cumin into my apple pie filling instead of cinammon and ruined the whole thing.

Tracy said...

Praying for you & for your sweet Noe....take care.

Amanda said...

praying...praying...for your wearying day...wishing i could be there to help you out.

Aspiemom said...

Wow, you sound tired. I hope and pray that little Noe is better soon.

Your supper mistake was a riot!My biggest mistakes were: putting cumin in my applesauce and having to throw it out. And baking a chocolate chip cheesecake for company. I had copied the recipe over, but forgot the sugar, eggs and vanilla part . As soon as I pulled it from the oven and figured out the mistake, I rescued it by ladling dark chocolate over the top and hardly anyone noticed - until I confessed.

Yeah, K!!!!!
