An Update

Is it Spring yet?

Ah, my friends it has been too long! I just wanted to update you on why it has been so long! As you may or may not know, I broke three toes on my right foot about 2.5 weeks ago. Yeah, I’m THAT graceful! I tripped, went down and when I was finally able to get upright, I could no longer walk on my right foot – too painful!

So, it has been an interesting journey! Do you ever feel as if God is against you? In my heart, I know He’s not, but on that Sunday morning, it sure felt like it. It even felt more like it two days later when I came down with some horrible gastrointestinal bug. It was horrible (I will spare you the grisly details!) and all five of us had it. It was a well-traveled bug.

I am slowly getting back to the fact that I can eat again, though my symptoms have disappeared, I am somewhat gun shy, as you might expect. That area is going well, though my foot still throbs from time to time and I still have to hobble around on my crutches. Time is the great healer, for broken bones at least. I am fortunate that I am not a marathon runner, or my podiatrist would have wanted me to have foot surgery. When she asked about it (since I had a 50/50 chance of needing it or not) I felt my eyes get large and my head shook from side to side. Uh-uh!!!!

It has been most difficult staying put and healing, though not that difficult when I had the GI bug. Who wants to go anywhere with that malady? Yuck! I have had to relearn patience and let others do for me, which about kills me (though my children would disagree!) I am tired, but also resting in God’s love.

Looks like a happy place, doesn’t it?

I am trying to work out a solution to our housing issue. Please continue to send your prayers at this very difficult time (regarding housing and anything else you want to throw in there – we can use all the help we can get!!!) and we will watch how God works.

Thanks and God bless,

  1. I am praying for you and the kids. I’m sorry to hear about your accident as well as the housing issues. I really hope everything works out well soon and I hope you don’t need surgery.
