Thanks for the congrats! It's been a long time in coming. I just hope it sticks. We're so early yet. I got my beta back, 17.2 LOL. So so early.
William's doing ok with the chicken pox now. He doesn't feel so sick anymore. He can actually play, and the spots are finally actually showing. He's not really scratching or asking for cream yet though. I think he might only get a mild case. I hope he doens't get it again later!
I haven't been able to focus on scrapbooking at all. lol. My mind is all over. I had horrible nervous butterflies all day yesterday. I could barely eat and it only made me feel worse. Today I'm much better though.
I'm not looking forward to tonight or tomorrow morning. Tonight is the viewing for my friends 9 year old. Tomorrow is the funeral. The only good about tomorrow is my husband is coming home from being out of town since Wednesday.
It's been a rough day around here. I can't stop my mind from thinking of that precious angel and her parents. I have been crying off and on and Christian is asking questions. I've tried to explain to him the best I can but I don't think he understands she isn't coming home. He knows she is with Jesus and he is so excited about that but he thinks we all should be happy. (Which we should rejoice with her) but he doesn't understand the heartache associated with it. Keep praying for this sweet family.
I need to get home (I use the local university's computers) and work on a spread about a quilt that my boyfriend got after he was in an accident at work and was in a coma for several weeks. His aunt sent out 'blocks" to family and friends to write messages on, then she made the quilt. I have been trying to scrap it for months now. Problem is, all the blocks are different colors, many boldly patterned, and the messages go both horizontal and vertical. LOTS of visual activity going on! I just couldn't get it right. But now that I am not running away from white, I see that white is the ONLY color that will work. The facing page will document milestones in Mark's recovery. But I don't know how I will do that yet, so I need to play around a bit. Need to go with it when I feel inspired, b/c I have been discouraged for so long now!
Glad to be taking on this challenge again! I WILL get this spread scrapped!
I will pray for the family. What is the child's name? If we were closer or on the phone or something, I would say we can pray together. But I'll join my prayers with yours and everyone else's! Let's just hope for healing. I am going to walk home and write down this prayer request on my list of things to pray about in my morning devotionals.
