Pictures from Tuesday
It was a day of many baffs! With each bout of fussiness my thoughts would start to get carried away… “Something is terribly wrong,” “She’s getting sicker…” swirling around in a toxic fog in my mind. On the verge of tears I’d start up the bath water. Each and every time an inordinate amount of stinky bubbles would present themselves, leaving behind a happy squealy baby. Three times this cycle repeated itself. You would have thought that by the third time I’d have figured it out!!
I awoke this morning feeling overwhelmed and on edge without really anything to set it off.
I am reminded:
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord , the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.
(Isaiah 12:2 NIV)
With that, I take a deep breath and begin my day!
I’ve suffered from anxiety and my therapist taught me to stop “bad” thoughts as soon as I realised I was engaging in those thoughts. A person who controls his/her thoughts controls his/her mood, that’s why it’s so important.
Staying alone at home doesn’t help either, so, please, GET OUT of home ; bundle up Nornor and drive to the nearby mall, Starbucks or any other warm place. She also gets bored at home, Mommy!!.
I ALWAYS GET JUMPY WHEN SOMEONE IS ILL AND MY MIND RUNS WILD. I HAVE TO GIVE MYSELF A GOOD TALKING TO. THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK OF IS WHAT YOU ARE ALREADY DOING ALEISA, AND THAT IS TO PUT YOUR FAITH IN GOD (WHICH I KNOW YOU ALREADY HAVE). IT HAS TO BE HARD WHEN IT IS YOUR CHILD. MY SISTER IS WITH HOSPICE RIGHT NOW, AND EVERY TIME MY NIECE CALLS (MY SISTER’S DAUGHTER) I PANIC. I TRY TO TELL MYSELF WORRYING DOES NOT HELP, BUT I GUESS THAT IS JUST BEING HUMAN. IT IS HARD WHEN IT IS SOMEONE YOU LOVE SO MUCH (DOES NOT MATTER WHAT AGE) AND THEY ARE ILL. BUT GOD HAS BROUGHT LITTLE NORA THROUGH EVERYTHING SO FAR, AND FROM THE BEGINNING I FELT LIKE HE IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF HER. HE IS A LOVING GOD. I AM NOT GOOD WITH WORDS WHEN I AM TRYING TO EXPRESS HOW I FEEL, BUT JUST KNOW YOU ARE ALL IN MY PRAYERS EVERY DAY, AND I LOVE YOU ALL AND PRAY FOR THE VERY BEST FOR LITTLE NORA AND HER WONDERFUL FAMILY. LOVE AND PRAYERS, YOU AND THAT SWEET BABY HAVE A GREAT DAY. SHE WILL BE WANTING MOMMY TO TAKE HER TO THE BIG TUB. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
Hi. Alicia. Maybe you’ve already read this lifesitenews article, but I thought I’d share the web link here in case you haven’t:
Will be praying for Nora’s healing.
Unfortunately gas can make for a very fussy baby…hope she’s better soon! As always praying for Nora.
