Just want to be done

May 28, 2015

Mom and I are about to take a couple of different trips in June. And I’m so ready to start the vacation it isn’t funny.. I’ve kind of been going through the motions, doing the necessary things with work. But I’ve been feeling tired, worn and uninspired. And that is true in both my work and my writing . I took Monday off and just read. Other than that, I can’t remember taking any kind of break except for the weekends.. And maybe part of it is that having my grandparents here has been somewhat difficult.. I think we are going to have grandparents here almost three more weeks, though I’m not completely sure of that.

We are going to be visiting some different friends which is my favorite kind of vacation. I’m sure we’ll do lots of catching up with everyone. There will be lots of good eating. And when we’re not busy I’ll likely read. Getting excited

Whirling thoughts

I’ve been having some health stuff going on lately, and I’m learning how draining ┬áit can be to be sick. We’ve seen a doctor, and I’m on some medicine now.

But you know something? I am extremely fortunate. A lot of disabled people have multiple health problems. They are always having to go to the doctor for this or that. They need many surgeries.. I’ve just had one surgery.. That was not an experience I care to ever repeat..

And where should we as Christians stand as far as doctors go anyway? God is a God that does not change. I know He can heal, anything He wants to, any time He wants… Have we lost trust in God because it’s so easy to go to a doctor? Can God work through doctors? There is no question in my mind that He does. I have no idea what the balance is..

Sisters

It is Friday, and once again I’m feeling like if I do not do this now, it’s likely not going to happen.. Just wish I knew what to write about

I have a sister who is two years younger than I am, and she and I have always been close. We are the only two who have gone to public school.. I was starting sixth grade when we started homeschooling, and she was in fourth. By the time she started sixth grade, we were in the same group at church and shared many of the same friends.. And slowly she and I did more of the same schoolwork.. She also helped Mom a lot with my care.

Her moving out was probably the most painful for me, because she and I did most everything together. It didn’t help that she was going to live with my favorite aunt. She met her husband there, and thankfully they moved just a couple of hours away from us a few years into their marriage. They have two beautiful children, I’m not at all prejudiced about that.

Peace after the storm

I’ve come to realize that I would really rather not wait until Saturday to get this done. Saturdays are kind of unpredictable, sometimes we have friends come hang out with us, and other times I just do not feel like working… I have some things that I could try to do over the weekend, but we will see what happens.

I can not believe how calm and peaceful this past week has been.. The couple weeks before that were really rough with Grandpa.. I mean, there were daysthat it felt like he was angry and yelling from the time he got up to the time he went to bed.. Well, he may have been good while he was eating, he’s always loved to eat.. Everyone in my family was pretty stressed out. We have my grandparents until the end of this month, and I was really unsure of how we were going to make it.

But then Mom called my brother who is in between jobs.. My brother is doing an awesome job taking care of my grandfather. He’s getting him out of the house, keeping him busy.. And things just feel much better all the way around now.. Praise the Lord.
