Earlier this year my life changed forever. My Mom told me she was sick, she thought it was cancer, but had not had it checked out yet. Then a little over 2 months ago, she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and it had already spread throughout her body. For 7 1/2 weeks she fought the fight, but her body couldn't take it any more and she has now passed on to a better place.
During this time we had 2 foster daughters who we thought were going to go home. They didn't go home the first time, they didn't go home the second time and now we are currently waiting for the third try to come around.
I'm also pregnant, a wife and a mother to an energetic 4 year old.
Life has been crazy!
I used to have everything under control. I knew when all appointments were and when we need to have things done by. My paperwork was caught up and things were in order.
I've never really known the meaning of just surviving, but these past few months feel like I've only just been surviving. So it is time to start trying to get back on track. I need to get my paperwork caught back up to THIS month. I need to get back into my weekly cleaning routine. I need to get back into cooking good home cooked meals. I think your getting the picture here.
Surviving, is not a good place to be. I'm still on the fringes of it and it sucks, but in life we all go through times where its necessary to simply get through and do only the things that need to be done to get through. If you are in a time like this or are just coming out of one, let me encourage you to get back on track. I feel seriously overwhelmed trying to do so, but I can see with every small step I take to getting back on track that I feel better, feel somewhat normal again.
