Well, I don’t even know how to start this post… Let’s see… It has been quite an interesting weekend. 

First, on Friday, I finally visited the doctor who told me that over the last 6 weeks that it appears that I had caught a new cold as I was recovering from the first one.  This all was about to be a big sinus infection and she said that I was going to be even more miserable.  I told her that I truly could not imagine that.  She gave me a shot and antibiotics and told me to continue what I was doing until I was completely over this stuff.  So that’s getting better…slowly but it is getting better.

Then on Saturday as we were about to head to bed to rest before getting up for a Sunday of worship, we head a loud BANG!  I looked out front to see some lights shining beside our truck that was parked on the road.  We went out to discover that our truck had been hit but someone.  She was unhurt but the cops did have to take her away for driving while intoxicated.  We are, for the time being, a one vehicle family.  It will be interesting as we juggle our schedules but a new little adventure can be fun.  {smile}

This all has thrown me in a bit of a tail spin.  First, I’m exhausted from fighting illness.  That can wear on you after a while.  Second, the events of Saturday night bring back a flood of emotions for me concerning my brother’s death.

I know that some just don’t understand but for me, his unexpected loss and the pain that went with it, seem to just sit below the surface.  Sometimes when something like this happens, it seems that the emotions just bubble right up to the top and spill over again.  I just can’t explain it.  It just is what it is. 

So I’m stepping away from the computer for a while.  I need time to step away from this blog and from facebook so I can meet with God and let Him be my healing balm right now.  It is so easy for me to turn to this blog or facebook looking for others to console me with their words.  (which I love and appreciate, for sure)  But I need to look to Him for my comfort and spend time with my family as my little heart deals with this pain.

Anyway, just wanted to say that it will be a little quiet.  My plan is to stay away from the computer for this week.  I plan to be back next week if my heart is ready. 

Sorry for the heavy stuff this morning.  I’m turning the comments to moderation so I don’t have to worry about spam or such.  And I hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. Prayers for a quick and complete healing (from sickness), also for a calm spirit, one that only He can provide.
    I cannot relate to your pain, but I do understand having such strong feelings sitting so close to the surface! I hope you get feeling better very soon!

  4. Completely understand the need to step away from it all. Take the time YOU need to heal YOURSELF.... We both know where to find healing and solace. Though my brothers death had diffenret circumstances, the sting is the same. And I promise that I WILL NOT tell you that "time heals all wounds"....if ONE more person tells me that I just might punch'em. ;0) ( Not really) I hope you feel better soon and I MISS you tons.

  5. Adriane, I understand what you mean about emotions sitting right below the surface and unexpectedly having them rise up from just about anything vaguely related to what happened. Your words were just right and you explained it perfectly. I don't have any wise words for you, but know that I'll be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers in a special way this week. Rest and heal. So sorry it's been a rough week.

  6. Thanks you all for the comments. I have to check my emails for banking purposes and I've seen your messages in my inbox. I truly do appreciate your prayers and comments. This week is going well. It's still been a little up and down but I think that's just because I'm tired. We've had some good news concerning the truck not being as bad as we originally thought. But we've now got more sickness in our home. It's not confirmed but I'm pretty sure one of the boys has the flu. Please continue to pray for us. I particularly could use some prayers for energy and strength. Thank you all again.
