I know y'all sweet people who follow me and read me via email think I've fallen off the face of the earth. Well, I haven't. There are just seasons in our lives when blogging has to be put on the back burner. For the past month, I've been smack dab in the middle of that season. With Shadow's death and mom's hospital stay, I entered into a depressed state. I'm not completely through it, either.
Along with the drama around those two events, I also have been dealing with some health issues. I thought I had nodules on my vocal chords...something a singer dreads with all her being. It wasn't nodules, thank the Lord, but it is acid reflux...bad enough to cause me to be on some heavy duty medicine. I go back in a couple weeks to check on it.
Along with the acid reflux, my wonderful Ear, Nose and Throat doctor, Dr. Lim, found that my thyroid was enlarged and ordered an ultrasound. I have nodes in each side of my thyroid, which means I go tomorrow to have some blood work done to see how my thyroid is functioning. Then I will go back to Dr. Lim to have those labs looked over when I see her about my acid reflux.
Thyroid problems are hereditary, so I knew this was probable sometime in my life. It's just really inconvenient right now.
Now, we just found out this week that Momma will be coming to live with me, at least temporarily. It's a long story, and one I'm not really at liberty to share.
All of this is so very overwhelming. I appreciate your prayers as my family and I work through all of this. I know the Lord has promised that He's here, no matter what I go through. How others who don't know Him go through life...I just can't imagine.
I am still working on tassels, believe it or not. My Etsy shop has been sorely neglected, poor thing. I will be adding more to it in the coming weeks, AND I will be giving a couple of tassels away in the next few weeks with two different blogs. I will let you know when and where when the time comes.
Confession...THESE are not the ones I'm giving away. But you can ask me for some if you'd like to purchase them! They are not loaded on Etsy, so really, if you'd like them, just email me at butterflygenes at yahoo dot com.
This one, too!
