The culture we are creating
by Lori Twichell You may think you know what I’m going to address in this article. After all, it’s what everyone is talking about today. But you might be surprised at where I’m going with it. Just stick with me – even if things get a little uncomfortable. If the big game last night brought in the viewing numbers that it usually does, over 100 million people from around the globe joined together to watch this extravagant, over the top piece of entertainment. People who hate football tuned in for the commercials and the hype. People who love football obviously had their part to watch. And there was, as always,…
Establishing the Work of My Hands….
I had no idea at the time, but that simple ten-minute phone call with a woman whose name I don’t even remember changed everything for me. That passage resonated with me and for days afterward when the kids were crying or I was second guessing my thoughts to work from home, I would hear these verses in my head.
Flashback: Happy to be ‘just a spouse….’
This morning when I got on Facebook, it reminded me of my memories from this date over the years. I do love this about Facebook and often, it brings to mind those daily treasures that too often are forgotten. On this date in 2010 though, there was a pretty powerful memory that I felt needed to be shared. again. Especially in light of our current situation. Rather than hit the share button on Facebook, I decided to put it here on my blog. So I beg your indulgence as I share a memory from November 19, 2010. Please excuse this space for a little therapy since I can’t afford (and…
One step at a time….
I posted this yesterday on my Facebook page (I had too much happening to even attempt to get it over here!) But now I have a little time, so I thought I’d share. 🙂 This is a long update, but stick with me. It turned out to be a mini blog entry that I just don’t have time to put in the blog right now – so putting it here! LOL! So I’m not gonna lie. Yesterday was a really tough day for me. I had just wrapped my brain around a plan, gotten the kids settled on what the next month would look like and literally just decided it…
Hubby Update: What A Difference a Week Makes!
So a week ago I posted this blog about my hubby’s pain issues and the surgeries that were scheduled for next week. We had, quite literally, no idea what we were walking into. That’s some scary stuff. Looking back at all we’ve been through this week, it still awes me how much we didn’t know. I meant to update Friday evening. And then again on Saturday. But it’s taken me a couple of days to get my head together enough to put my thoughts into something coherent. Writing always helps me process. So this blog is as much for me as it is for you. Yesterday I was exhausted. Couldn’t even…
We’re hanging on by our fingernails. Tomorrow we will let go.
This is a long journal entry. I would apologize but I really can’t. I needed to get this all out for my own sanity. There’s a lot here. We get asked every day about his injury and disability, so I thought it was important to explain it here. And then there’s so much unknown in the next week or so, I just had to do this to sort out my feelings on it all. Be gentle with me on editing and rambling. I haven’t had a chance to read it over, edit, etc. I just wanted to get it out there before going to church. So you get the raw,…
