Hodge Podge

Now that Polly's second surgery is behind us and she seems to be healing, I'm thinking about:

*Elaina's sleep consultation today (I'm taking her to a sleep doctor).
*Our insurance issues.
*Zoya's disappointment that I can't come to her Valentines Day party at school next week b/c of Polly's neuro follow-up.
*The writing class I started last night and the joy I felt being in a room of strangers who didn't know I was a mother of four, a pastor's wife, or that my daughter had brain surgery last week.
*Evie's Ukrainian passport.
*Two meals that were dropped off at our house this week.
*Lent coming up and what I am going to give up or add.
*Meeting with a friend to talk more about Jesus.
*Sergei juggling work, family and two classes towards his Master's degree this semester.
*The bottle of Chardonnay in the fridge.
*All the prayers and support we've received through Polly's surgeries.
*Making time for more discussion in our MOPS meetings.
*Potty training.
*Evie and Polly and their respective eating issues.
*A sweet little girl named Eden who is battling cancer.
*Turning 35 in March and feeling frumpy and tired. A couple of weeks ago I bought a box of Loreal hair color and it turned my hair a bit red. Not a great look.
*Evie taking two steps back in our bonding after our surgery week.
*A woman we are trying to help who had 25 week premies. One baby passed away and the other is at a hospital here in Chicago.
*God's grace.


  1. That is a lot to think about. I will keep you in my prayers.

  2. A busy mind,... and a VERY FULL HEART! You are full of strength and grace even when you don't feel as though you are. God will carry you and help you to carry others.

  3. that is a whole lot to be thinking about my dear. I'm glad you enjoyed your class. Sounds lovely to be where no one knows you!
    I am only a few months younger than you :)

  4. I would never describe you as frumpy. You are an energetic, vivacious, beautiful woman who probably feels tired. I am so honoured to know you.

  5. you are a busy Mama!
    I shared some sunshine with you, head to my blog for the details.


I'd love to hear from you!
