Life's LIttle Hiccups and Gratitude
I took a hiatus for the last week. The reason for this was because my son was sick and in the hospital. He had to have IV antibiotics and surgery. It was tremendously scary and something I wish to never have to do again. He was in the hospital for a week and now you would never know it. He is back to his normal, happy, little self. We only have a few more day of antibiotics and then he is done. During all of this chaos and stress, I didn't work out. I didn't eat as healthy as I have been. I didn't eat completely horrible, but it wasn't great either. I know I could have done better, but nope, I didn't. I don't feel completely bad about it. I just know that I need to get back to what I was doing before. I gained about 1 pound back. Not as much as I expected, but I know it will come off once I am back to my healthy routine. I took a hiatus and now I am back and ready to go. During all of this, I learned that I am grateful for so many things. I thankful most of all, my son and husband. They are amazing and I would be so lost if I didn't have them. I am also thankful for my faith and belief in a God that loves us and helps us through the tough spots in life. I am so grateful for the power of prayer. I know it works and I know that we had so many people praying for us, people we don't even know. I can tell you that I felt those prayers and they helped lift me up in a way I could have never been able to do by myself. Lastly, I am thankful for modern medicine and technology. We went to the hospital because we thought my son had a very serious, potentially life threatening illness, but with a quick CT scan and some blood work, we found out that it was not life threatening or as serious as we had originally thought. I am so grateful for the amazing children's hospital that we live by is so great at what they do. I guess the whole point of this goes back to my original post and point of getting healthy. I love my son and I want to be around as long as I can for him. Sorry for all the rambling and incoherent thoughts, but that is what is in my heart right now.
