Life is Crazy and Unexpected and We Learn a Lot of Great Lessons

If you follow my blog regularly, you have probably noticed a severe lack of posts. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know why … for those who don’t, here is a quickie catch-up:

Our neighbors have become some of our closest friends. Our oldest girls are the same age, we both home schooled, and we go to the same church. Our faith has connected us, and I have gained one of the best friends that I have ever had (besides my husband). We do a lot of things together. Well, a few weeks ago while eating lunch by her pool, she got a call from her hubby that he was on the way to the hospital. His doctor’s office had blood tests back (he went from feeling exhausted and like his heart was overworking) – he needed a blood transfusion. I grabbed the kids and brought them all home with me, and she went to meet him at the hospital.

Three hours later, she called me with an update. He was diagnosed with leukemia. WHAT?!? That was most unexpected. He was immediately transferred to the Cancer Center and began treatment.

So that she could be by his side, and the kids didn’t need to worry, I kept them. And so it has been – I have had 4 kids in my house almost non-stop since then until the last few days. I will admit, the last few days have been overwhelmingly quiet here … it is kind of crazy how fast you get used to the noise and excitement and insanity of twice as many kids as you’re used to!

So, that’s a quick recap of why I’ve been too busy for blogging. I am following this with some recipes. Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and please pray for our friends!

  1. Praying like crazy for your friends! They’re really lucky to have you as a friend (as I’m sure you feel about them!) :)

  2. I missed this on Twitter so I’m reading it for the first time. I’m so sorry to hear about your friend, but having you there to just scoop up those kids must have been such a relief for your friend. This doesn’t surprise me about you, though, because I imagine you to be a very wonderful friend. I’m sending many positive thoughts with hugs and strength to all of you.
