Recovering


I had my big surgery last week.  It's been quite a journey. 

 Even though I've heard so many hysterectomy horror stories, I can tell already, it was the right choice for me.  The organs that made me sick and hurt for so long are gone and I feel like my body can finally heal.  So I'll be taking it easy for a while.  It takes time and it can't be rushed.

I have a feeling that good things are coming my way now.  The Lord has a different plan for me, but it is a good and perfect plan.  The husband and I are definitely thinking about adoption at some point.  We'll see where this road takes us.  For now, we plan on enjoying the son we have and the life we have and having lots and lots of fun!  We've missed out for too long.  It's time to relax and enjoy the life we have :)

  5. Take this time to heal and ponder what lies ahead. It must feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders now that the surgery is over. God Bless!

  7. I glad you feel like it was the right decision for you. I didn't realize you'd have the surgery so quickly. Hopefully your recovery is speedy and (relatively) painless.

  9. I just found your blog the other day (by looking for watercolor elephants) and I clicked around and found so much great stuff on your blog. When I clicked on the main page I was so sad to see this post. You seem like a really wonderful (and insanely talented!) person. I'm so sorry that you've had to go through all of this and I wish you a speedy recovery. Sending good vibes your way from Philadelphia. :)

  13. So happy for you that you have your Faith to get you through! Praise God! He WILL help you get stronger - stay close to Him always.
    Consider Fostering or Adopting children. There are so many children born to parents who just don't care about them! My niece fostered two little boys (brothers) whose mother, pregnant again, said she just didn't want them around anymore! They are beautiful, loving children who have so filled the family with even more Love and Light than before (they already had two beautiful children who were teens!)
    God be with you. I find walking through His creations of beautiful flowers, etc. help me gain strength - and always fills me with gratitude for these Creations that Beautify our world!

    1. I know! I think about children without good homes or parents all the time and my heart aches for them. We are thinking seriously about our options, but need some time to heal and rest first. Thank you for your comments! I love being out in nature too. You are so right. It does give you strength and help you to be grateful.
