I like to think of thankfulness as an art form. Something I continually work on and strive for. To be honest, it’s not something that comes naturally to me. It’s a state of mind I’m working on. Continue reading
I am a planner, but a short term, six months out , kind of planner. I’m not a long term planner. Like year out family vacations, nope, I don’t do that. Preparing my heart and head for dropping my first-born at college, nope not that either. Continue reading
August 18th Beau was officially discharged from the hospital!
I’ve had such a hard time making myself sit down and write this. I have so much I want to say, but it comes with so many emotions. And to be honest, I also struggle with wanting to open up and share with you and balance keeping our lives protected and private. Continue reading
Oh wow! Did it take me long enough to get to part two? It’s been a crazy busy summer to say the least! I’m also not so good at blogging on my own, but Ang has bigger fish to fry than helping me blog. I miss her tons and can’t wait until we get to blog together again! So here it goes, my attempt at the rest of the story. Thanks for your patience friends!
As it turned out, I was right. There was no sign of breast cancer that showed up on the mammogram on the previous Friday. Many are skeptical and say that, “They probably just got yours mixed up with someone else’s “. That person has probably never seen an old school mammo. It has your name on the top and looks similar to an exray. And I was there and saw all the pics she took. I watched her every move because I was incredibly curious to get to the end of this. There was no mix up at all. Continue reading
Maybe a week after Beau’s accident a friend of mine sent me a message. ” Heidi, you should tell your story.” I didn’t even know she knew the story. You see a lot of people, people I know well don’t know this story. But come to find out she was at church the Sunday I shared. It was the only time I shared in a big group setting…because to be honest, I’m not a public speaker. People laugh when I say that and don’t believe me because of my job where I’m always in front of people.. Yeah, serving coke and peanuts at 35,000 feet is not like speaking in front of people….WAY different. But it’s a great story and one that should be told more often. Especially when we aren’t feeling hopeful of situations or hopeful that God is hearing our prayers, but he is. I am thankful that Ang already knew this story before Beau’s accident. Because it’s a story of hope, God’s grace and healing. I have been wanting to share this story with Marybeth , because she is in need of hope too. This story was meant to be shared but it’s way out of my comfort zone to share something so intimate. But sometimes we are pulled to share, God calls us to do things that make us uncomfortable and that’s what he is doing here. Ok,so maybe he has been encouraging me to share for a long time now but I wasn’t listening. So bare with me because this story is a long one and I’m a little scared and uncomfortable, so I am doing it in parts. Thanks for the encouragement Julianne, because of your encouragement, I’m finally writing my story…. here it goes! Continue reading
