frustration [insert throaty frustrated scream here] is what i am feeling right now! a doctor calling to reschedule an appt. that is two days away where i have to drive across state to get to and one where my husband needs to go to but now cant cause it got rescheduled. not to mention i still have to go on the first scheduled date because of two other appts. now i have to go back three days later. he should know better than to call this late. she has 4 therapists a week. so i have tons of other people that work around this appt. time. i need to relax. i know im being overly upset about such a small issue. but when it comes to my daughter and her care i take it very seriously. i feel like her doctors should too. and i know they do, and that anything could have come up but still im upset. now i have a call into the same doctor because he is weeks late on getting the result of her last blood work to me…i was jsut going to wait til the appt monday but i now need to know now…i cant wait any longer. i know i should pray for peace and patience…and i will after i create this post. first i need to vent. so thank you for letting me vent blog. thank you very much. now im going to pray.
so tonight i stayed home, relaxed, and did some favorites….
-white wine spritzer
-medium rare steak (i dont usually want red meat but tonight i ‘needed’ it!)
-noodles with alfredo
-homemade chocolate chip cookies
-watched food network alllllll night
-played with the baby girl and her light stick….
bliss is what tonight was….oh and i found the playtex ventaire bottle in wide…my daughters speech therapist has been wanting us to use he ventaire but the nipple are small and she needs a wide base one….anyway they now make the ventaire in a wide based nipple! yay! exciting! isla used her new bottle at bedtime and it worked wonderful she did really good with it and i was nervous cause it was a fast flow! also tim decided to make the last batch of cookies cause isla fell asleep on me and the last batch ended up being one huge cookie, he thought he was so clever and cute. also i love the fact that i have now got my husband hooked on some food network shows…his favs are diners, drive-ins, and dives and throwdown with bobby flay. its too funny this is coming from the man that watches 5 yr old nfl games on the nfl network all day long…i love him though. also just a hint to my followers…if i have any…when i ramble like this…im in a good mood…so i end this blog with thank you lord for such a good night at home!
today all four of my baby girls therapists came to the house. they all talked about how she is a different baby and how much she has improved. i have no words except, GLORY TO GOD!!!! thank you. my husband and i feel so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter. yeah at times its like “why us?” but 98% of the time is its like “why not us?”and we deal. prayer has been soooooooooooooooooo crucial. i am in constant prayer. every night i sit down and pray for specific healing. exactly what is wrong and exactly what needs to be fixed and worked on. through out the day i am in constant prayer an ‘open dialog’ if you will. and pry several requests as they hit me. the elders have prayed over her. many churches through out the country are praying for her. we are constantly reminded of how awesome gods love is, through others support with prayer! i love it. and i want anyone to know if you are reading this and you are in need of prayer. or someone you know is in need of prayer. leave a note. ill pray! and everyone healing prayer is sooooo important the bible teaches on it! god can heal anyone of anything. you jsut gotta pray and have faith! as i sit here typing this, im sitting on my bed with the laptop on a pillow isla is sitting inbetween my legs sitting ‘indian style’ nestled in my ‘indian style’ position ‘talking’ to the computer and i feel blessed, loved, lucky, overwhelmed, and joyous! (by the way she just reached out to touch the keyboard!!!!! yayayayayayayayay! she is making improvements! we have a long way to go but we are gonna get there i have faith! and i believe that all things are possible!
The Bible actually gives us some directions on how to pray for healing. For example, in James 5:14-15 we are told:“Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15) And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.” and in James 5:16 we are asked to “confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” and then told that “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”In Mark 11:23-25 Jesus further instructs to forgive when we pray “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24) Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25) And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
so after starting a week ago on my closet i finally finished it. i started one day and then stopped after getting like no where. and it sat that way for a week clothes everywhere!!!!! but i finally finished it. my closet is organized by style and color! i love it we shall see how long this lasts. after i finished my closet yesterday i decided to tackle my daughters closet. she is 9 1/2 months old and this is the third time ive gone through her closet and her 3 tub of clothes that has been packed up! her closet is jam packed with such cute little clothes. i love just looking at them all organized in her closet by color and of course pink is the longest section. such adorable little things some i paid way too much for. why do i squirm when i see something in baby gap for $29 but absolutely have to have baby nay, baby lulu, my vintage baby, and more? but i guess that is the reason i shop off the clearance rack and spend no more than $5 per item at old navy, childrens place, gymboree, baby gap, and the consignment stores. so i can afford those little goodies! by the way my little cutie loves goody goody shoes! she rolls her ankles so all shoes fall off but these stay on. and for this fall the have a leopard print boot with red leather detailing! OH MY GOSH!!!!! http://stores.homestead.com/GoodyGoody/-strse-79/Zippity-Leopard/Detail.bok A-DOR-A-BLE!!!!! anyway i need to go get ready to deal with some more clothes at the store! www.randomclothier.com
