I'd like to say that I'm feeling all happy and stuff, but I'm not. Not just because Chad's out in the field and once again missed my birthday and Valentine's Day (I'm use to that really). Before I get into that though...thanks for the birthday wishes. I had a nice birthday. The Women's Conference went great both Friday night and Saturday morning. After the conference my friend B and I with our kids walked down to the Bazaar that was going on over the weekend. We spent the whole day and evening together. We left B's home at 11:20 that night! Got home and had messages from Chad, my parents, and my nieces. Got sang two via the phone from Chad and my nieces, so that was sweet. B gave me a gift cert. to  the day spa and she got me a little star from the bazaar. The next night the kids and I went back to her place after Awana, because she made a cake for me (plus after Church she took my boys...that was the best gift...I had a break).



So, Chad's been out in the field and still is. I've been an emotional mess. I know part of it is stuff that's coming up in our lives and I get like this, but there's just more to it. I'm also sick again. I haven't been sick so much in a season in so long. Since I lived with my smoking parents actually. A friend and I were talking about how we wonder just how damaged our bodies are from years of being exposed to those toxins and how much of it has late effects on our bodies, weaking our immune system, etc. Anyways...I have a cold. Losing my voice..again. My throat is killing me, I'm coughing up a lung, my head is hurting, eyes are sore and tired. I'm going to bed here in a few promise! :)



I wish I could find the words how I've been feeling. It's just so raw. Not knowing just who reads here, I'm hesitant to write too much too. This is my journal, but well there are just a lot of freaks in this world. I'm probably going to go private here soon. DO NOT email me right now if you want to be a reader, because I'm not doing it right now and my email box is full of enough. I'm probably going to wait through the weekend and then will put up the private post and collect names and go private a few days later.


Well...I'm off to bed. God Bless

Sending up prayers for you.  I've been sick a bit this winter too.  Currently my whole head needs to stop hurting:ears, throat, head, teeth.  I thankfully have Lou here though.  I'm so glad I have him.  I'm so sorry you don't have Chad right now.  Get some rest (with three kids in the house, HA!).

Well, I am so sorry you aren't feeling well. I do want to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday! Chad and you celebrate when he gets back, along with Valentines!

I truly hope you get some rest. I know how hard it must be, with 3 children to care rest for the weary huh?

Be well, my friend!

Oh dear....let me write a quick prayer for you...

Dear Lord... I lift Christy up to you.  I ask that you can calm her anxious heart and relieve some of her discomfort.  Dear Lord, please comfort Christy.  Bring her peace in the midst of this turmoil, and bring her guidance for her fears.  Lord, please be with Chad.  Bless him and protect him and give him guidance Lord.  I ask that you send down some Heavenly warriors Lord, and let them protect Christy and Chad.  Let them guard their precious and vulnerable hearts.  Let the Holy Spirit dwell within them Lord...and calm those worrisome thoughts.

Protect them Lord.  In your Sons name I pray... Amen.

Blessing to you dear friend-

I'm sorry you are not feeling well.  It's bad enough to be sick but worse when you are home with kids alone.  I DO have some suggestions:  1) if you are coughing badly, put Vicks on your FEET and cover them with socks.  I have no idea WHY it works...but it does!  2) Zicam nasal swabs.  Use them every 3 hours or so.  It kills the germs FAST and will knock out the cold faster.  3) Echinechea.  Take 2 capsules three times a day.  It helps build up your immune system and will also get rid of the cold faster.  

If you can't find any of these things where you are....let me know and I will send them to you!!!  You have too much to do to be sick!!

Christy I am very sorry to hear that you have been so sick.  Being sick and taking care of three little ones alone is not fun.  I will make sure to say a few extra prayers for you and your family!  Linda
