Happy Birthday Aunt Mary!!!!
Today I rejoice and thank God for this woman! Mary is a dear friend of our family. She has been with us for holidays, births & deaths. She truly has rejoiced when we have rejoiced and wept when we have been left to weep. She holds a special place in my heart and in the heart of anyone she meets. She's a unique and beautiful lady, thats for sure! She loves her bulldogs, loves to cook, loves to be a blessing and truly is! I cannot wait for the day when you can come again and be a part of this beautiful chaos that we call life! We love you. Praying that you have a GREAT day!
In other news, I went to the Dr. yesterday and spent 400 bucks to confirm what I already knew. I do indeed have a stress fracture on my tibia (the bone on the inside of your leg.) The treatment you ask? Rest. Rest. Rest. How long, you're wondering? Until it heals. Solid answer, eh? I then got a nutrition lesson about how I need to be getting enough calories because I am an "athlete." I need more calcium (that part's definitely true.) I'm glad I went to hear it/see it for myself. I'm disappointed in myself for allowing it to get this bad especially now that it's starting to get nice out and all I want to do is walk the kids. But, I'm going to rest and take care of myself. If you see me doing too much-kick me (just not in my shin please.)
I'm having quite a bit of baby fever during this last month. I keep weighing the pros in cons in my mind and regardless of any of that my heart just keeps saying "Do it!" "Have another one!" "It's the perfect time."
In reality, it is NOT the perfect time. I know we want another baby and although I could definitely do it right now, I'm not so sure I want to. Daniel is extremely defiant when talking about the situation (although he is slowly warming up to the idea.) I know I have said numerous times that after Braden I just couldnt imagine doing it again, but Braden is beautiful, loving, and over all very good now. I do realize that I just started sleeping, I just lost all of my weight and feel healthy again, I just got into a great routine with both of the kids, etc, etc, etc. It's just so hard to fight against my own hormones. haha.
Daniel hasnt heard back from his interview yet. He has another test for a different position (an actual police officer position) on Saturday. He even went to the Y last night to run. He wanted to practice. Weird. So keep him in your prayers if you think about it and I'll let you know what happens. I feel God preparing us but I also feel Him closing doors. Not sure what that means completely but that is just how I feel the spirit moving.
Nora and Braden are feeling better, slightly. They still have runny noses and are ready for nap time and bed time when they roll around but they are much better over all. Thanks for thinking about them, asking about them, and praying for them. They are called of the Lord ya know! Invest in their lives now and it will surely be worth it!
We love you all and I'll write again soon. Have a great day and catch some rays!
