This is a repost from a post which was published last year, with a few changes sprinkled throughout here and there. I NEEDED to republish this particular post for myself. To help remind me just how far the Lord has brought me in my journey with chronic illness, and in doing so, I pray it will
Today as I'm writing this post it just happens to be Brian's day off from work which IS a VERY sweet thing. HOWEVER, when he came into the house and asked me if I knew anything about our mailbox hanging wide open, with the flag still up and all the outgoing mail missing, that was anything
As a young girl growing up and even as a teenager and young adult, I always looked forward to the start of a new school year or a new semester of college. Yes, I was one of those geeky nerds who actually enjoyed school! The beginning of a new school year brought the anticipation of
The Lord delights to show us His faithfulness and His blessings in the huge situations of life, as well as in those situations which we might refer to as the "mundane" of life! Two weeks ago I had to go visit my doctor for a check up. An every day event. Nothing particularly special about

This past Monday, the 10th of July, was the birthday of our one and only! I can hardly believe he is now thirty-two years old! Wasn't it just yesterday Brian and I brought him home from the hospital? Didn't he just begin kindergarten two months ago, and then the following month graduate from high school?
A few weeks ago Brian and I watched an interview with Mandy Harvey. Mandy lives in Central Florida (as do we!), and she was being interviewed by a local pastor. Many of you might have seen Mandy perform recently on, "America's Got Talent". Mandy is a twenty-nine year old-young lady who is deaf, and yet
I'd like to introduce you to a rather amazing lady who has made a tremendous impact on my life, and I'm quite sure she has impacted your life as well without you even being aware of it! I can't say I know her personally! I really don't know much about her! I've never even met her!
I'd like to say "straight up" that in no way is this post written for pity's sake, self-promotion or any such thing. I'm just stating facts and praying it will be an encouragement to someone else who may be walking down the same pathway. If you have lived with a chronic illness for any length of
