Laundry Love and Baby Steps

My mom has been washing a lot of my laundry since I haven't been feeling well. One of the pictures shows my dad carrying my boys pants to his house to be washed.  Amazing!  That is such a blessing. At church our pastor prayed for me and I've really noticed an improvement.  I still get tired quick but I'm not in as much pain and my thyroid seems to have improved. It doesn't feel swollen.

I've gotten behind greatly on the house because its harder to keep up with less energy. I have to remind myself over and over (and over and over) that its about raising my kids.  Its not about a perfect house (its never perfect anyway) . Oh, the battles in my mind are constant and tiring.  I guess if I'm gonna be dealing with this stuff I'm gonna have to simplify my house even more to keep up.

The kids have been so cute. Juliet is barely starting to crawl. She her dad every morning while he's getting ready for work. They have their own conversations going and she gets so excited.  Yesterday she leaned over to give me a kiss.  Oh man, I'm the luckiest lady on the planet!

Hey Jenny,
I have been praying for you. Keep fighting! God does heal! He is your strength, your fortress, and your high tower! The joy of the Lord is your strength!
Hopefully I will get to meet you someday when you come to visit Michelle!
Prayers, Valerie

((hugs!!)) I know the house isn't as neat, and things are very hard. I think though aren't you GLAD you did so much de-cluttering and simplifying JUST before this happened? Grateful for that. Are you able to clip coupons still or is that done for now?

You have always taken in extra kids here and there and I hope some of these friends are ready to help you as well. :)
