Growth

Lately, I have been thinking alot about growth and development. Not just physical but mental and spiritual growth as well. Last night I happened to find a journal that I had started writting in when I was pregnant with my DS. With many of the entries I ended with and help DS to grow healthy and strong inside of me. I was so worried that something might happen to him that I could hardly stand myself if I did not feel him move. Once he came all I wanted to do is sleep. This required him to sleep. With which he had a hard time. Funny how are our views change. Now he is sleeping and I am the one who is awake. God has blessed me with a wonderful ds and dh but sometimes I forget to let them know how much I think of them. Sometimes I am just too wrapped up in me to care about them. All this time I thought that I was a very loving person. The more I learn about me the more I find out just how much I need someone to save me. The more I learn about myself the more I realize just how important it was for Jesus to die for me. Not only to die but to defeat death and rise from the dead so that I might be able to love my family just like he loves me. I am still working on that part. I hope that in all my growing that I never forget that. Thank you Jesus for dying for an selfish unworthy mommy like me.

Didn't realize that this was going to be such a testimony but here it is.

Hypothyroidism and other stuff

Today is a good day. It is very hot outside so me and the baby are inside. Right now he is napping. I was trying to nap but the phone kept ringing. The dentist was confirming our cleanings for next Tuesday. It is so annoying that they have to make two phone calls. My guess is for privacy issues but if you live in the same house and they call the other person will know becuase it is always computer animated. Drives me crazy but whats a girl to do. I guess the answer is to blog.



As mentioned in an earlier post I am trying to learn all I can about hypothyroidism. I am still feeling pretty tired but I think that I might be catching up a little on my sleep. Although this will probabbly never happen. Does anybody out there have any information on hypothyroidism? If so please feel free to leave me a comment. I am trying not to worry to much about it but it can drive a person a little crazy when the doctor tells them "you have this so start taking this medicene and oh by the way you will have to take this the rest of your life."



I was think "Oh great something else for me to remember and to stress about"

Changes

Lots of things have changed since my last entry. I am still very tired but I have found a reason for my tiredness. I went to the doctor and found out that my thyroid levels were very low. I was diagonsed with hypothyroidism. Translation bring on the pounds and sluggishness. I absolutely hate being tired. I want to lose weight but now I have something to blame my lack of weight loss on. Right now I am trying to find out as much information as I can on hypothyroidism. Everything I read says that I will have to take medicence the rest of my life. I really don't want to but the alternative of having major heart complications is definitely not something that I want to deal with at all.

On another note, I did read a great devotional today on the need for faith in God to bring us through tough situations. Easier said than done for me but I am going to try. For anyone who might read this how about you? How is God working in your life? I would love to hear from you and I will try to keep you posted on my slow progress. This is a journey it is up to us if we enjoy all that God has given to us.
