Friday's journal entry for my 21 day challenge was done with paper! I have been thinking that if this challenge is really about creating a good schedule for me and my family, then taking up all my time doing a fancy digi LO every day is just taking away the very time I need to do what I am trying to do for us, and that is not really the point of this, right? So I decided to make myself an art journal that is 8.5x11 and the digi pages I do can go in there printed at 8x8 and most days I'm just writing out my feelings like this, and that way I have the most time I can for my family and I am still doing this for me!
So, you may be wondering why would the challenge be so hard for me? Well, if you read my blog a week ago you may remember my post about the pothole that was swallowing the city, I kind of laughed it off and made a joke about us hitting this huge crater sized hole. But I have actually been in more and more pain every day, dealing with a crazy week-long headache and excruciating neck pain. I am this crazy girl who likes to ignore things thinking they will go away if I try extra hard to smile and carry on like normal. A few of my good friends finally brought it to my attention how very bad my state was getting and reminded me that I am no good to anyone when I am in this much pain! Thank goodness for friends once again!!! Cam stayed home from work for the day on Friday and I layed on ice for the morning, I wrote this journal page well waiting with my mom to see a doctor at the hospital. He said I have bad whiplash injuries , I will need treatments, and prescribed tylenol 3 for the pain. I am disappointed to say the T3 isn't working much, but it sure is nice to know what's wrong with me! Today was unbearable, and all I could do was ice and sleep ( I'm really not a big suck, I'm usually good with any pain!) I am so glad that Cam is such a great Dad to the girls so they still had a fun daddy Saturday! And my mom came by and made meatballs and rice and steamed cauliflower for the family. I really am so very blessed, scrapping fun aside, I mean the things that really really matter...Amazing friends, a beautiful supportive family, and a good and loving God.
Years after I have retired my creative passions these are the things that will really matter, and I am so very thankful.
If I can ask those of you who pray, to pray for me, I would really appreciate it. There are so many areas of my life that require me to be feeling better than this.
thank-you so very much and God Bless you all,
