Last week on my Facebook page, I promised that I would update you on why I have been so quiet…so, here goes.
For the past few weeks, I have been trying to figure out what the purpose of my website and Facebook page is. I want to connect people to things that I love and hope they will too…that has been the purpose all along right? But I want to make it easier to navigate so I have been redesigning my site…I am not ready to launch it yet but I wanted to let you know that it is coming.
During this process, I have had “LIFE HAPPEN”…I have been taking care of my family, teaching my children, facilitating a Bible study, doing assignements for my virtual assistant clients, working in children’s church & in youth, serving as secretary of Junior Auxiliary, serving as co-chair of the Tipton County Relay for Life, working in women’s ministry…etc. Also during this time period, I was experiencing a lot (I mean a LOT!) of pain. I went to the Dr and he decided to send me for an ultrasound which found nothing so I was scheduled for a diagnostic laparoscopic surgery on October 13th. Well…on Sunday, October 9th, I was called and told that my uncle Dave, who had been hospitalized for awhile, wasn’t expected to make it through the night so I went to the hospital and sat with our family. It was a long difficult night but I was blessed to be able to be there and serve my family as Dave made his journey into heaven. It really brought me back to one of my passions…serving those who are hurting. The funeral, AKA Life Celebration, was held on the day my surgery was orginally scheduled, October 13th, at the Bartlett Event Center. I am glad my Dr was able to reschedule me so that I was able to attend because and there was an amazing display of love for the Miller family that totally blessed me.
So…my surgery went well. The Dr only found some adhesions that he took care of and said all of the organs he saw looked very healthy. I rested for a few days and then got back to my regular busy life. I have to meet with him soon for my post op where he will talk to me about what next…hopefully the pain will be gone so I won’t have to worry about that anyway 🙂
What are my plans for the website & Facebook page? I plan on keeping the “Freebie Friday” feature for awhile at least, as long as people like it and it is actually helping someone, why not? I will be adding some more product & book reviews (have some great ones coming up!) as well as anything we do in our homeschooling adventures that I think others might enjoy. What about new stuff?? Well, that is kind of the secret that I have been holding on to…I am writing a book…yes, a book. I have been in the research phase for awhile now and now I am ready to start putting it all together. I would appreciate your prayers as I finally pursue this dream I have had since I was a child. I look forward to sharing my book with all of you as soon as I am able.
Thank you for being there for me through it all. I love you!
