I'm not complaining. I love my life but it's been pretty rough the last few weeks.
Lots of stress, lots of unknowns (and if you know me, you know how much I HATE not being able to plan something) and too many goodbyes.
Tomorrow my husband leaves for Texas for a couple months. For awhile this week it looked like he wasn't going to be able to go (hence the stress) but it seems to all be working out now.
Before he left I decided it was time for my first tattoo. My mom passed away in 2009. She was a major part of my life and I miss her every day. A couple weeks back I was going through old cards (I save important cards etc) and found one that she sent me for my birthday shortly before she passed away. She signed it differently than usual (Usually cards from her were signed Love, Dad and Mom) but this was signed "All my love, Mom (& Dad too)!
Looking at it, I realized that I wanted to keep that with me. So introducing;
Yes, I left the Dad part off. Love him but he's still around for me to talk to.
One of Josh's soldiers is a tattoo artist here in Colorado Springs and he's amazing. He did this for me last night and I love it!
I decided a while back that my ultimate goal for hitting my weight journey goal is a back piece. Adam is going to do it for me and I'm excited!! It will probably happen sometime next year :)
I know I haven't been around much. It's been a really trying few weeks, but JJ starts back to school in 2 weeks and I'm praying that life will even out shortly after that.
on the upside, the kids are sleeping a little better! We discovered on Wednesday that Elliott has an ulcer being caused by his Gtube, so some changes are being made (as well as introducing a new medicine) to see if we can heal the ulcer up and that might allow him to be more comfortable sleeping and eating!
Anyways, that's the quick update from me. Pray for me as I go it alone for a few months. I know God has me in his hand and I know that His plans are always good. Just somedays seem harder than others!
Please forgive me for not being around and being the supportive person I try to be, but right now, it's all about making it through the day :)
Love you all!!!
