at peace

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

it is amazing the diferance being at peace with oneself can make.it has been ages and ages since i have really been at peace but i can say for the last three weeks that is how i have been and because of that everything seems to be easy and not stress me so out.what is the differance you say.the differance being that for three weeks i have had no unplanned visit to the dr for myself or the children.there is always the planned ones they will never change but no unplanned ones.this is such a rare occurrance that i didnīt write this blog earlier as i didnīt want to tempt fate so to speak.i am not saying there hasnīt been illnessīs ayman and ayyub and myself still have coughs,aymans been having fever on and off as usual.we even had a bad case of the runs that kept ayyub off kindergarten but and this is a biggy.NO BEATHING PROBLEMS:i hasvenīt have to use the nebulizer on ayman or zakariya,ok they are both still on steriods but it seems to be holding everything in check usually at this time one or more of my kids have had to go to emergency if not stay in hospital.as this is the first time this as happened it has made me realise what a pressure i am usually on.it took me a while to even notice that i was at peace.i knew there was something but it took me several days to find the word for that something.i have just had a nice bath.the housework for today is all done .even two washes and it is just 10am.all i have to do now is make some bread and then go to drīs for my irn/quick reading.as for the big hose clean for the new year have only the windows and doors left to do.all the cupboards in every room of the house have all been done,sorted out cleaned etc.it is amazing how much you can get done when you are calmer,less stressed and worried if one child will make it or not.even the fact of zakariyaīs birthday party yesturday and having to make every from scratch from the fondant,marzipan and chocolate to decorate it didnīt phase me.as zakariyas birthday wish was as usual that he could eat what all the other kids could eat.even his 4 year old brother said he wished zakariya could eat chocolate then added he wished he could eat pork.lol(i guess he has that from the other kids in the kindergarten)arenīt kids precious.it brings to mind though that even though zakariyaīs allergies give me alot of extra work it is some thing i should not complain about even if the time is short as it is much worse for zakariya.anyway this weeks weigh in as i weigh in on a wednesday was up by 1lb but even that didnīt stress me as usual.it is only 1lb and i can loose that this next week.what has pieved me though is we have brought a wii on monday and tried yesturday to set it up.could we do it,NO.so all you people out there with wii tips on how to get it to work on the tv please.did a yoga video instead but the kids canīt wait to go on the wii.anyway to all who celerbrate it i wish you all a merry christmas and to you all i wish you all at peace it is amazing how at peace feels and all that you can do when at peace.god willing i will be at peace for a while.take care and thanks for reading this blog and for being there for me as usual. emoticon

    My Darling Karen: I cannot think of anyone more deserving of peace and joy in their lives ... This is the balance that we spend a lifetime searching -- and yet, it is a choice -- something we can do each and every moment we are blessed to be given!! Balance, peace, love, joy -- these are the blessings of our lives!!

    Thank You for being in my life ... for being the kind of friend I hope I am to you and those in my life ... I am humbled and honored to call you "friend!"

    Today and always, I wish you peace, love, joy, friendship -- and all of life's many blessings!

    Karen, you really do sound at peace with yourself. Would love to have seen the birthday party. Bet you made it a very special day since I think you're a wonderful mom.

    I have the Wii but don't remember how I set it up and I can't find the instruction booklet. My son also connected it to the internet for me so I can even log onto spark while on the Wii. What problems are you having setting it up? Not only will the kids enjoy it but so will YOU.

    Hugs....Mary Anne

    Glad to read you and the boys are doing well healthwise and that you are at peace. So good to hear that. I wish I had all my cleaning done, still working on boxes since we moved in.

    I'm so glad to hear it, Karen! It's amazing how we get used to the chaos in our lives and it takes us awhile to figure out "what's missing" when it goes away! Enjoy the peace while it lasts!

    Hugs! Beverly

    Karen, I am so happy to hear you are at peace and that health wise things have settled down some. I wish I had all the cleaning done you do! You put me to shame :-)
    I'm sorry I can't help with the Wii we do not have one, but I;m sure many do who can give some suggestions. The family will have hours of enjoyment with it I am sure! Good luck with that!
