I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

I just realized that it has been over a month since I have posted here!

Do I have time to sit down and write? Of course not!

Do I have anything to say? Of course I do!When Owain was born I learned many, many things. One of those things is that expectations are like are like Hershey’s Kisses, no matter how much you plan, or how hard you try, if you hold on to them too tight they WILL melt in your hands.

I planned and organized before Owain’s surgery. Like I said, in a sweet an chocolaty way, expectations are over rated. I HOPED that all my planning would make life easier after surgery. I HOPED that emotionally preparing for months and months would make my recovery easier. And I HOPED that everything around me wouldn’t fall apart at any time, for any reason.

My planning rocked! And I am so glad I micro-organized, it DID make my life easier. But there is only so much that micro-organizing can do for a person.

My self aimed pep talks DID help me to cope. I am still a bit of a mess though. No more than I would have expected and definitely no less.

So over 3 months have passed and I still feel like I am catching up on sleep, I still feel like there is unopened mail and unanswered phone calls. I can’t prove any of this though, since I still don’t know exactly where to begin organizing my life again.

For now, I am taking things one day at a time. One email at a time. One task at a time. Today’s task of the quickest ever blog post has now been accomplished. (it also helped that I started this post over a week ago and there was very little to actually finish)

It was driving me crazy knowing that my blog was sitting there with a post dated over a month ago at the top!

    Every once in a while I have to find you on Networked Blogs to make sure all is okay. We’ve missed your posts; but family and healing are way more important than this blogosphere world!

      Aww, thank you! It is much harder to find time to write than I ever would have imagined. I do miss it though and I keep trying to start writing regularly again 🙂
