This is more of a stream of consciousness post. Obviously, my consciousness lacks brevity. I have been keeping this list of things I’ve been learning over these last nine months while in recovery from well, my life. While I know the list will continue to grow as I grow, I felt like I should share what I’ve learned so far. With an unapologetic 3000+ words, clearly, I’ve been learning a lot. Don’t be intimidated. Just read and digest what you can. If this is not for you, feel free to pass it by. I’m a believer in writing what I need to read so I’m guessing someone else out there needs to read this too. If not, that’s fine. It’s been good for me to log my recovery progress in this way.

No long post today. Starting with the ridiculously long title and the use of the word “just”, this will actually go against all the rules of blogging but I don’t care. These two simple sentences are something I desperately needed someone to tell me once upon a time when going through the hardest thing I’ve ever endured in my life.
I’m pleased to be sharing this fun story with a profound message from my friend, Stacey, today. You can find more of Stacey’s writings about her life on her personal blog, A Life Repaired as well as encouragement for those battling chronic illness at Chronically Whole. Stacey is a fighter and a writer and she’s equally brilliant at doing both. I’m so honored to know her and call her friend.
Calling an audible… I knew this was sports related term but I had to ask my husband exactly what it meant. He described it as the team having a play in place and then the quarterback notices a need for change that would keep that play from working so he calls an audible and they go a different route. I’ve encountered several instances in my life when we thought we had a play in place, the “quarterback” called an audible and the game changed.
Please welcome Ruth to the table as she shares a bit of her story. Be sure to hop over to her blog, Planted By Living Water, to read more of her writing. She has been such an encouragement to me and I know she will be to you as well. It is such an honor to have you here, Ruth!
I’m trying to stay away from sugar so, this Easter, I’m saying a big “UMMM… NO” to my favorite Easter treat, yummy milk chocolate with the rich, gooey center Cadbury Cream Eggs. I’m drooling just thinking about them. But I’m giving a hearty “YES” to this Traditional Irish Lamb recipe for Easter Sunday.
