More of These Days

I'm not sure if I ever had it... the ability to hilariously/sweetly/thoughtfully/informatively blog about my life. But, if I did, it's certainly gone now. *sigh* I'm not sure if I'm as busy as I think I am, or if what I'm doing is that much more important than blogging. Maybe both? I dunno.

There's so much good going on right now. First, I'm 19 weeks along in a pregnancy I was convinced wasn't going to happen. Looking back, I realize what a blessing this timing was. Why? Well, another good thing is that I start my second class next week. It will end just weeks before the Jelly Bean is due to arrive. This teaching position is enabling me to quit my full-time job. Can I tell you how grateful I am? It breaks my heart to see my little guy just 1-2 hours per day. Come January, amidst the insanity of going from one to two, I will have him home with me every day. The Targo, while being the stressed one in this marriage, is not only comfortable, but excited about this. We'll see how our families react, but I know this is the best thing for my family.

And the bad... It's so bad. We've had yet another cancer diagnosis in my family, this time it's the Targo's mom. It's breast cancer and she's having outpatient surgery in a couple weeks. And honestly, that's all I know. We've got no details. In fact, we should consider ourselves lucky that we know, because she's not telling anyone. Anyone.

Could you all send up a prayer for this lady? She's got a lot on her side (her age, her general health, living in a large metro area with access to great hospitals), but I know prayer will help.

I'm so happy and sad at the same time for you. Happy that you are starting a new chapter in your life. And so sad that cancer has touched another life. In my life, things are having that same happy but so sad too mix. My life seems to be calm and eerily problem free at the moment but I have several friends and family members who are going through so much, either emotionally or health related. It makes my heart so heavy. My prayers are with you and yours.

I'm glad for the good things. And I'm so excited for you guys - I hope you'll come back and blog more, even if it is just the daily things, because I love reading about your life!

Big hugs to you guys, especially Targo & his mum - will be sending big thoughts and prayers your way. x

Count on my prayers for the Targo's mom, as well as all of you.

I bet you are looking forward to being home with your kids more - I do love it (most of the time).

I will be praying too. Hopefully it is an easy treatment and she is cancer free soon.
