God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
I for one have been trying to work on my becoming closer with God ALL the time and not just when things get rough. It's times like these that open my eyes, and show me I must try harder.
I can't go into too many details without exposing the privacy of some family members, but needless to say that if any of you feel like shooting some prayers our way it would be greatly appreciated.
To top off the unmentionable issue we have all been battling a cold, and it has literally moved from one family member to another. We are trying to recouperate from that, but with a mix of the unmentionable, the colds, and the day to day tasks that can't be left undone things are very stressful.
I somehow feel as if my world has been flipped upside down and I don't even feel much like myself. I try my best to hide this feeling from my boys. They are mama's boys and very sensitive to my feelings. I still think they know something is up because they cuddle up to me every chace they get. Still their cheerful smiles and happy laughs bring me a joy that nothing can destroy. I don't know what I would do without my wonderful baby boys, husband, and family. I know that we will get through this even if in the midst of the storm it's hard to believe. I still count my blessings, and am thankful. God is with me, and I miss all my readers and fellow mommy friends. I hope all of you are doing wonderfully, and I will be trying to get back online as much as possible to reconnect with everyone. I still have some great things coming your way that I am going to do my best to be on time with.
