God is good

So, I'm over my pity party, feeling much better and making some good improvements in life. Returning to yoga, finding a counselor, running again, and trying to go gluten free (day 6 & counting, going well)!!!

Went to a fun Pampered Chef party last night with Britt! I love kitchen gadgets and have been wanting a mandolin for a long time--done!!!

Now, for something serious, my sweet friend, Karla (a two time BLM and mother to beautiful Julia), is currently 32wks, 4 days with twins, Jake and Keirsten. Baby girl's amniotic fluid is low and not improving, so she will be delivering them via c-section at 1:30 today! Please pray for a safe delivery and for the health of all 3 of them. Also, pray for Julia while home is disrupted to bring her babies home and for her husband, who is a total sweetie, just to hang in there through it all!! They will really appreciate it! Karla has been an awesome support to me over the years we've been friends and is a precious woman of God!!

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend. We are traveling home for Sean's Paw Paw's funeral. We are sad he is gone, but I'm pretty sure he is thrilled!! He was always ready to go to glory and see his precious wife!! I pray they are rejoicing together now with God!!


  1. OMG I cannot believe your friend is already 32 weeks! Where did the time go! I am praying for her and her babies, please keep us posted.

    I am glad you appear to be feeling well!!!! ....and just so you know, if you want to pity party all month long, we would all support you :)

    I love you xxx

  2. It sounds like you are making so many wonderful positive steps in your life. And girl, if anyone deserves a pity party, it's you! Thinking of you.

  3. I'm glad you are starting to feel better. Sending you hugs. And i'm a day late but still gonna say a short prayer for your friend.

  4. Praying for and thinking about your friend and didn't feel you were having the least bit of a pity party!!! Life is hard and it hurts...we have to voice that, acknowledge that and then do just as you did, give God glory for helping us through it all!!!

  5. Even though I am just now reading this, I pray your friend, Karla, experienced a successful delivery of her babies.

    I love Pampered Chef too! Glad you bought your mandolin!

    Sending lots of happy thoughts your way. Have a blessed week!
