Life Blessings for Christmas 2010

My kids got most of the things they asked for and were happy for it.

My husband has been amazing taking care of all of us while I had my surgery, my week hospital stay, my medical setback over the last few days and Christmas morning with the kids.

Sitting like a piece of furniture on the couch for the last few days unable to move or do absolutely anything for myself is SOOOOO much better than sitting in a hospital bed alone.

The unconditional love my husband has shown me is beyond "sickness and health".

My kids patience over the past few days while Daddy walks mommy to the bathroom and feeds her, cleans her and helps her has been amazing.

The love of my family, friends, and readers that I have felt over the past two weeks makes my heart sing with joy.

My grandparents who are in their 90's sending me a basket of Edible Arrangements. Although I was unable to eat any of it thanks to my surgery, my family enjoyed it and it is a blessing to be 44 and have grandparents around to send it.

The help, trust, assistance and love of an unbelievable, trust worthy, sweet, compassionate, girlfriend who has been there from the beginning and was around the day I asked in an emergency to drop my kids off so I could run to the hospital.

The friends and family members who have taken time from their busy days with their families to call me, txt me or say hello on Facebook.

My sister-in-law's confirmation that my babies will be taken care of along with their father if God forbid the worst happened.

The Christmas mircle of waking without pain that makes walking to the bathroom without my husband's 100% assistance manageable. He was there for support, in case of anything.


  1. So glad you are home and have been praying for you! I am so jealous over the Edible Arrangements :) Please take care of yourself and get better soon!

  2. I'm so glad that you are getting around a little better now. I knew hubby would take care of you and your kids would be more than patient with you. You are such a giving and loving person, that these things you mentioned are not at all a surprise to me, they are just things that would naturally be a response to the love you have shown to others.
    Wish I were closer to help more than my daily prayers. Keep resting to get stronger and I will continue to pray for renewed health and strength. Hugs to you all.

  3. Funny how things come into perspective when one is faced with a serious surgery or illness. May you continue to get better each and every day until the day your "owies" completely go away! :-)
