Rise and shine and give God the glory! 6/21

4am, wide awake, and full of energy. Red Bull gives me wings once again!

Are the steroid meds too strong? Yesterday was the last day of them so I suppose they will wear off sometime today.

Seize the day:

Had time to pray, get laundry done, have an early breakfast, and meet a friend for a walk. Nice and cool out, refreshing to talk, walk, and even jog a few times. No caffeine needed! Not too bad!

I don’t promise to post everyday, but when I’m so full of energy, at least these first few days, I’ll capitalize.

Good News!

Women who have breast cancer that have a good level of vitamin D (30 or above) fight it better and have a better rate of survival.

I learned yesterday from my labs that my vitamin D level is 38!

And that is without taking supplements to boost that number, just based on my diet and normal routine.

Feeling positive!

Full and grateful!

All the goods yesterday!

A feast! Had our first Meal Train dinner brought to us yesterday. We were positively pampered.

Wasn’t feeling sick yet so wrestled with the idea of receiving a meal already. I don’t like putting anyone else out. But reminding myself to see it as a gift of love-and how it gave me the time to slow down yesterday, sit and ice my hands/feet like I’m supposed to 4x’s a day, read with my kids, do a few crafts with them, instead of being on my feet cooking. Knowing my chances to do these things are probably very limited in the near future, I’m soaking it all up. And everyone else was too. The kids are being extra sweet towards me.

And a few friends stopped by. One of which let me put a pink steak in her hair to join the fun. We’re going to wait and see how long it takes her husband to notice it!

Oh! And my neighbor also brought over homemade chocolate chip cookies and warm apple pie. Score!

Found my daughter’s happy note on her napkin!

Everyone’s keeping me positive-and in the process- it’s doing the trick to keep the family positive.

Can a day get any better?

Thankful,

Bren

    Positivity is SO important! And be sure to not feel guilty about being pampered – you don’t want to take away someone’s blessing!
