So last night I did some time travel
(no it has nothing to do with stupid daylight savings time)
I spend an hour or two going back and reading my blog from the last four years.
I found that when I started my blog I had a 1 year old, a 7 year old and an 11 year old. I still worked at the IRS and we were still making 2 house payments. In the course if those four years I have lost 35 pounds, gained 20 back and lost 17 of the 20 again, I have lost my tonsils, a length of tendon in my big toe, a bunch of bone in my nose and the hole in my heart.
I went through the pain of my grandmother getting sick and passing away all over again, I had the joy of seeing my kids grow and change. I found that I was much more insightful then (at least it seems that way), I read as I started this journey from "gosh I feel crudy all the time" to a final diagnoses of CFS.
I started this blog as an avid scrapbooker with a handful of close friends have become and a rabid quilter with friends all over the world.
Thank you for letting me share my ups and downs, my rants and my rambling, thank you for being there for me when I needed an ear and a shoulder (even a virtual shoulder has helped so much)
You have lifted me up in your prayers and I have found many reasons to thank the Lord for you and to ask for things on your behalf.
NOW on to the part you are really reading this about...
