It has been really crazy around here. The girls have been sick ALOT lately.I don't think Kristyn has been well for more than a few days in the last 2 months. I think we are about to have to get tubes. She has had 4 ear infections in the last 4-5 months. 2 of those required 2 rounds of antibiotics and 1 of those 2 required a shot as well. She is currently on meds for an ear infection. Her doctor says that if this one doesn't go away or she gets another one soon we will have to go to the ent. I am not looking forward to it but if it helps her than I am all for it. I just want my baby to be well.
Kristyn is down in Ms with Steve's parents and we were looking forward to a nice week..well...Kat is sick now. She has strep throat so she has missed 2 days of school. So much for peace and quiet time for mommy. lol Now today I am feeling horrible. I hope I am not getting sick also. Oh well that's life.
First of all I want to tell you all that the situation with Kat's school has been resolved. The teacher was great and appreciated me being forward with her.
I am having a really hard time right now. Actually my family is going through alot right now. My best friend Lauren is going through a really bad divorce. Well her soon to be ex and his parents are accusing her and my husband of having an affair. I know this is not true and I want everyone else to know the same thing. Steve is a wonderful Christian man and a great husband and father. I know deep in my heart that he would never do anything like that. We both take our wedding vows very seriously. I want you all to know that if you hear anything about Steve it is NOT TRUE.
I am having a hard time keeping a good Christian attitude about the whole thing. I am trying hard not to hate anyone but at this point it is really hard. My friend's ex's parents hate Steve and me. They have even told her that. They really have no reason except for the following reasons....1. My friend and I met in a post partum(sp?) support group. and 2. Steve and I are members of the Church of Christ. I know this is just a test and it will pass. Please pray for me and my family. Please pray that God will help me through this and help me have the strength and courage to stand up for what is right. Thank you for letting me get this out.
You know this time of year is very nice for most of us. My kids are really looking forward to Christmas. We also enjoy spending time with our families. We have started a tradition with our family(meaning Steve, me and the girls) We don't go anywhere on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. We started this last year. Kat loved making cookies for Santa and waking up the next morning to see if he ate them and if the reindeer ate the fruit cup she left. It is very exciting to see the look on the kids faces we they see what "santa" brought them. After we open gifts Steve and I fix a big brunch. His parents and brother come and stay Christmas Eve also. It is really nice spending time with our kids like that. These years go by so fast I don't want to waste a minute of them.
There is one thing that kinda bothers me. As most of you know Kat is in preschool this year. Well she came home the other day and said "Mommy it's Jesus' birthday" I was caught off guard not knowing exactly what to say. Well I told her that some people believe that but that the Bible doesn't tell us when He was born. I told her that we are thankful for Jesus everyday and celebrate His birth everyday not just once a year. She came home a couple of days later and said "Mommy I told Ms.Mary that it's not Jesus' birthday." I asked what she said and Kat said "She said Yes it is" How do you explain this to a four year old? I guess this is only the beginning of the battle. I know there will be many other trials in her educational future.
Why do people only become religious at Christmas and Easter? Is that the only time it is important? I don't understand why this is the only time some even step foot in a church building. I think we need to thankful for Christ everyday not just around the holidays.
Well I made it through yesterday pretty good. Today has been harder than yesterday for some reason. I guess it is really hard because of the hollidays coming up. Also I am going to Kentucky on Thanksgiving with my mom to see my grandma. She is very sick and we haven't been on very good terms over the last few years. I am going to be away from my kids for Thanksgiving, but I really need to go see my grandma. It is going to be a very hard situation to be in up there. I am praying that we can go see my grandma and that be it. I am praying that we can avoid seeing the aunt that has caused all the trouble. Oh well we will all pray for the best.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE!!! Have a great time and enjoy family and friends.
Well it has been almost 3 years since we lost baby David. I can't believe it has been three years. It seems like only yesterday. I remember going in for a routine checkup only to find my baby had gone. I remember how alone I felt at that time. I didn't know how I was going to be able to make it. Thanks to God, my family and my friends I did make it through. I think about David everyday. I miss him so much. I remember holding him in my arms and counting each toe and finger. He was so tiny. He was no bigger than my had. I remember asking why?? Well I guess I will never know exactly why. Some things just happen. I know where he is. I know he is in Heaven waiting for me. I know he is being loved and taken care of.
Please remember to keep me in your prayers over the next week. This time of year is always hard on me. I pray that God will grant me the strength to make it through this. I pray that he will remind me that I have a wonderful husband and two wonderful little girls and that if I live as he has told me to I will see David again one day.
