A different sort of day

I’m spending most of my day on the recliner, with some brief walking around times. Yesterday I had gallbladder surgery, so not too much moving for me πŸ™‚ It feels a bit like I was on the losing end of a fight πŸ™‚20141101_080554I’m thankful for ice packs and painkillers.

And for moms that help out. For friends and family that text, call, email, bring you food. For a hubby that takes good care of me. Children that are so sweet in helping out. One of them said ” Is there anything else you want me to do, Mom?” Melts me πŸ™‚

This was from the lovely ladies at church~20141101_090958How pretty they are!!

Poor Jenna. She doesn’t like a mom that wants to just lie around. GET UP, MOM! were her words πŸ™‚ Soon, I say.

There are things I do like about having to be still. I lay here and hear my little girl singing. Something I might not think of so much when I’m busy. I feel the comfort of a warm blanket and fuzzy socks. And I feel loved. Not that I don’t at other times, but it is just being shown to me a little more πŸ™‚ Maybe because I look so disheveled and wince a lot πŸ™‚ At any rate, I’ll soak up the love, and hopefully be back in business in a few days!

Have a blessed weekend!

    Awww, know how you feel, had that 5 years ago…not fun when you have a couple young’uns. Hope you’re feeling better soon! πŸ™‚

  2. So sorry to hear of your operation, but thankful you came through it well, and now you can rest. Just soak up all that love and affection and attention. You deserve it, girl! Let them return the love you so freely and unselfishly pour into them every, single day. πŸ™‚ God bless you with a speedy, uneventful recovery and restore you to perfect health.

    So sorry! Is this something they scheduled or was it emergency? I’m remembering how sore Mia was after appendicitus. Hope you heal quickly. Take care!
