my sister arrived from california tonight. the whole fam came up to the parents’ place and we are having $115 worth of mexican takeout.
that, my friends, is 17 fish tacos, 8 orders of rice & beans, 6 orders of chips, salsa & guac, a chile verde burrito and a chicken salad. to go.
because i am busy enjoying quality time with people i love, i won’t be posting about today. in case you wondered, it was a pretty great day.
instead of a typical meals & moves post.. i am posting something from the heart. not from my heart, but from momma b’s heart.
here she is..
Thank you is not a big enough word! I am absolutely overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, prayers and concern for me, Janetha and our family!! The past few days have been scary but also rewarding and quite eye opening.
This is Janetha’s blog. I’m glad she shares our family with all of you and is allowing me some space here to “ramble” (now you know where she gets it!) I am so proud of the way she approaches all aspects of her life. She is willing to share, serve, humor, teach and love us with such candor and honesty, I am so happy to be her mother!
I’m all about helping others and hope my scare will perhaps help others out there experiencing some of what’s up in my life. Yes, I’m a pretty healthy 58 year old who loves to exercise and tries real hard to eat right ;)
I now know I have a hole in my heart – we will find out Monday, March 28 just how big the hole is and whether or not it will require repair. My oldest daughter is a research junkie, I am so thankful for the articles and links she has sent to our family – we are learning a lot and knowledge is power!!
We are learning that the hole may have a close connection to the migraines I suffer with as well as the TIA’s I have also had. A few of you mentioned situations in your own lives and families that are quite similar to what we are experiencing and sharing with us is so helpful, thanks again!!
I came home at noon today feeling a little “off” having worked in the morning. I ate some of Janetha’s left over lasagna (yum) and then sat down and began to read all of your sweet comments……before long I had tears dripping on my keyboard feeling so richly blessed by your kind words of encouragement and love, you folks are so incredibly amazing!! But you know what the best part was??? Before too long I no longer was feeling “off” – I was feeling SO much better! I am also all about positive affirmations – I have a necklace I love to wear that says “Think good, it will be good” and that about sums it up!
It is so rewarding to be surrounded by such love and concern – now I’m starting to repeat myself and sound crazy– haha! So I will close by telling you how much I love ALL of you, I consider you family and include you in my daily prayers. It may sound cliché but I totally feel your love and prayers— it keeps me going! I have a great love and respect for a loving Heavenly Father who knows us all and wants us to be happy. I also have great faith in the power of prayer, I have a wonderful family close by and all of you – I am a blessed and lucky momma b!!!!
from the bottom of both of our hearts…
xo. janetha g. & momma b.
