Long time – no see! What started as taking a few days off when I was sick, turned into almost a whole month away! I’ve missed you! You can see I have been busy making some changes here! A BIG move to WordPress has been in the works and the site is now up and running. All my posts have been transferred – huge sigh of relief! There are a few things to work out, so please be patient (it’s a process!) But, I can’t tell you how happy I am with the new, clean look of the blog! What do you think?
I have been busy while away and can’t wait to share some of those projects with you! But, today is all about “grateful – thankful – blessed”. This past weekend was Josh and Sarah’s one year anniversary! I can’t even believe how fast that year flew by! And, that is a reminder that it’s been almost a year since my major spinal surgery last year on November 5. If you want to hear my story, you can find it HERE.
Basically, this time last year I was one bump away from being paralyzed from the waist down and after a six hour complicated surgery, I’m back to my normal self with just a few remaining effects from the tumor that was crushing my spinal cord. I still have pain from the surgery, but I’m working at strengthening those back muscles to help with that and trying to get more exercise into my busy schedule. I occasionally have some twinges of numbness here and there, but nothing to the extent of being completely numb from the waist down like I was last year at this time.
Looking back over the whole experience, I can see God’s hand over it all – it’s like that with God things! It was something that grew my faith, made me more bold about sharing my faith, and have a more balanced approach to life and what’s important!
To sum it up – I’m Grateful – Thankful – Blessed to be here to share my love of all things home! Thank you for being here – waiting for me to come back after a long break! Grateful for your prayers and sweet comments here! Blessed beyond measure!
