Blake: My Helper

Blake has always been a very compassionate and sensitive child. Today I was feeling a little worn down so I decided to sit for a moment and rest. I was checking my email when I felt my blood sugar drop and I immediately was very shaky. I went down to the kitchen in a panic to find something quick and easy to eat. After I grabbed my leftovers from yesterdays lunch and an apple I sat in the living room trying to not panic and relax. Blake came into the room and was wondering why I was eating and sleeping at the same time. I sat my head up and told him I wasn't feeling well and was just trying to relax. Blake then decided to try to make me laugh by doing a funny dance around the living room. He did take my mind off things while the food started to take effect. He then said he would get lunch for Liah and him which he did all by himself so I could sit and rest until the shakes went away. I really don't know what I would do without him lately. He is always such a big help.

Let us not eat the bread of idleness

I was remembering a prayer I had posted quite a while ago and dug around and found it. This is something that I want to read everyday to keep my focus on what's eternal.

"O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry; When I have work, help me to remember the jobless; When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all; When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer, And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency; bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help; By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen."

I feel like I take things for granted so many days as do most of us American Christians. I've never felt real hunger pains, I've never not known where I'm going to sleep. I think the most important thing though is I've never had to fear speaking that I follow Jesus. So many people in this world can't say the same things but most all the follower's of Christ I know can. This is something we should thank God for everyday and at the same time it should stir within us a desire to help others who can't.

My Biggest Accomplishment for Today

Today is one of those days that I wish I could start over, well at least after 10am. I feel like I've done absolutely nothing today. We did get good news today though. People may or may not know that we are pregnant with #3. We had our second ultrasound today and everything is still looking great and I have been released to just the normal prenatal visits now. This was a huge weight lifted off and I'm feeling very confident that everything will be ok. The problem is because everything is ok I am physically feeling awful. I can't get motivated for anything. I need to finish school (or should I say start) with Blake. I have to get the kitchen cleaned up or my family will be eating without any utensils tonight and I still don't have Moms Group finalized for tomorrow. My Biggest Accomplishment for Today: I haven't thrown up.

Finally Decided to Switch

After many frustrating problems blogging on Myspace I have decided to finally make the switch. I will hopefully be transferring things from there to here and also from the other blog I have.
