Once again, I'm back asking for prayer. I am so thankful there are so many of you that are faithful prayer warriors, for me and for others. Saturday morning I woke up feeling a bit blah, and it continued to progress. I know this is just a matter of healing, of my body getting used to the new "layout" inside, but at times it gets discouraging.
All last week I was looking forward to finishing my canning (because I had weight restrictions and couldn't lift the canner before today), starting to get my house back to normal, getting ready for some upcoming events, and it seems like I'm back at square one. I'm not...I'm much better off than I was two weeks ago, and I'm thankful for that, too, but oh! To not have all these side effects and delays....or maybe this is normal?
Sorry I'm moping and griping...I really do focus on praying for many of the other requests made known to me, studying different passages when my eyes aren't acting up (they've been pretty normal lately, thank God!), but I'm just at a moment where I'm battling discouragement. I want to be able to enjoy my kids, enjoy my husband, and not just sit on the couch feeling yucky.
Please also pray for my kids. They have had some occasional deep coughs the past 24 hours, and Luke has been complaining of a headache. It's another struggle for me because I want to snuggle and comfort them, sit up with them and hold them, but physically that is a challenge, too. Anything on my stomach is extremely uncomfortable, and just when we find a comfortable spot for snuggling, I usually have to make a quick dash to the other room....which is discouraging because I want to be there for my kids, especially when they aren't well.
And through it all, I continue to be so thankful for Tony...for everything he has been doing to help out, for his patience and understanding. What a wonderful blessing he is!
