Patience

I think God has really been trying to teach me something big in the past 8 months. I am not sure what it is but I will continue to be patient, to follow His will and press on. One thing He has taught me thus far is to be completely dependent on Him and to trust Him in everything. I have.
My accident on the lake was 8 months ago, in a way that was a blessing because it did slow me down and made me make more time to take care of me. Other than that I'm not really sure why it happened. I am so thankful that it wasn't anymore serious that it was and thank the Lord all the time that I am not paralyzed.
I had my tumor removed 3 months ago yesterday. That was s scare and found myself again completely dependent on Christ. I was OK with whatever it was and am so thankful it was not cancer. Maybe God was testing my Faith?
I lost my Pops 2 weeks ago today. That is the toughest thing I have ever gone through. I miss him so much and find myself with tears running down my cheeks at random times, like now just missing him and wishing I could talk to him and hear him laugh again.
Here I am tonight, and my tumor is back and is bigger than it was before. I am so confused about it. It wasn't supposed to come back and if it did it should not have been this soon. I am going back to see the specialist on Wednesday to see what the next step is. I am stressing about this because the surgery was not cheap and we just finished paying it off from December.

The last thing I want to do is complain and I am not about to ask God "why?" because I know this is part of His plan for Chris and I. I am just really struggling with all of the trials that have been laid before me. I will overcome each one by the grace of God and I know that I will be stronger because of each thing that has happened.
If you could say a prayer for Chris and I after you're done reading this, that would be so awesome. I was a little hesitant to post this but a few extra prayers can't hurt us right?
Thank you loved ones.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
