Small Successes~February 26th


I am a day late in sharing my small successes for this week. Our lives were turned upside down on Sunday, when we received a call that my brother had fallen 20 feet from a ladder and was at the ER. He had fractured his vertebrae, in a sense his back is broken. My Sunday was spent in the ER, then on Monday he had some serious complications. On Tuesday, he was in better shape and finally on Wednesday afternoon, he returned home. I was pretty overhwhelmed with it all, and was in prayer constantly. I thank God for his healing and that he wasn't paralyzed and didn't require surgery. He is in a vest to support his back and can't work for at least six weeks, but he is home and is recovering well.

We also received an offer on our house. We are now hoping (and praying) that the woman accepts our counter-offer, allowing us to live here until our new home is completed.

Now onto my successes:

1. I haven't completely fallen apart with all the things that are going on, although I'm on the edge.

2. We had a family movie day...lunch and Alvin and The Chipmunks Squeakquel on Sunday. We had a great time!

3. I have managed to keep up with the laundry despite our jam-packed week and am so thankful to be home today due to the major storm we're having today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings and peace,

Hi Lisa,
This is my first visit. I'm a Catholic single mom of 2 teen kids. It is a wondeful life of challenges, faith, and growth. There is no 1 day that I go without asking God to guide me in my journey.

I can see the wonderful blessings in your life. I hope you brother has a fast recovery. Glad you enjoyed family time; movies are part of our best memories as a family.

Yoli :)
