Sorry, I’ve Been MIA

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to send out a quick update. I have not forgotten about The Armor of God bible study. I know I was supposed to summarize each week my take aways and how I’m implementing the skills and strategies in my everyday life.

As you all know, I was pretty knee deep into the home buying process, and my family and I actually closed and moved in back in December! Moving right before Christmas was so hectic, but luckily for us, the weather was actually pretty decent for winter. I admittedly got caught up with the closing process and just trying to get settled in our new home. I still have boxes that we need to unpack. During our move though, Silas and I both got sick. First Silas had a little bit of a cold, but it wasn’t too bad, so I thought we were going to make it out of his first cold easy.

I was wrong.

I then got sick from Silas. I kept running fevers, and actually ended up with an ear infection. It was so bad that I didn’t get to spend Christmas with my in laws. My sister in law is pregnant, and it wouldn’t have been a great idea to be around her when I was so sick. At one point I couldn’t even make it out of bed without help.

Remember when I said I was wrong about Silas’s first cold being easy? Well, he got sick again. Probably from me. It got so bad that I ended up making him an appointment. He wouldn’t stop crying because he was running fevers, and he wasn’t eating because he was crying so much. He ended up getting an ear infection and the flu.

I’m happy to report that we are both fine, and luckily Ben didn’t get sick. So, I will be back to updating at least once a week. Sorry I went so long without talking to you guys.

Also, don’t forget to check out my new podcast, Parenting after loss, on apple podcasts and spotify. I’m looking to get it on google play soon.

Updates

Hey guys!

We close on our house next Friday! One thing that I have learned through this whole ordeal, is to have patience. There is a lot of documents that you have to go through or give to the lender before close.

I have started reading the Armor of God, and I can’t wait to share how I have incorporated the teachings into my everyday life. Look out for a post Saturday or Sunday discussing week one’s application.

I recorded my first podcast episode, and got it approved by Apple yesterday. Here is a link to it https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-after-loss/id1490238718. I would really love it if you were able to give me some feedback on it. I’ve never done anything like this before, so any feedback would be great.

Lastly, please keep my family in your prayers. We received some troubling news last night about my cousin and his family. The baby that they were expecting in June 2020, sadly passed away yesterday. I’m looking into putting a care package together to help them during this time. Unfortunately, they will have to have surgery. I believe they were too far along for the baby to pass on its own, I’m not completely sure about the process since my loss was a stillbirth.
