The Wall…

I have been far too complacent with my “wall” lately. Letting more people in then then I normally do. And I know its because I can’t do this alone anymore. But its been too many people and its now time to rebuild. Not comfortable at all.

Normally I try not to post the same posts on my blogs, but because this is for such a great cause, expect to see it on all of them!

 

I can't sleep!

It's Saturday morning at 8:30am and we have no soccer games to be at, no where that we have to be and the kids are all still asleep but I can't sleep. And it's because I feel so incredibly refreshed after last night.
Thursday night I needed, but last night I needed more. And I know I can't sleep because not only do I feel so at peace again and refreshed, but I needed to get what I was feeling out and write it down so I can remember it so at 7:30 this morning I jumped out of bed and wrote about it.
Last night I got out by myself for the first time in a long time. With Sean gone it's been hard to get out alone. I was supposed to go out one weekend with friends and even had the sitter lined up but we all got sick so I had to cancel. Last night my parents watched the kids for me and I met my friend at church for an hour of meditation and prayer and then we went out to dinner. And it was like the breath of fresh air that I had been gasping for and so needed. I'm back feeling at peace in my gut and in my heart and that feeling of happiness has returned!

Help Spread Awareness

I got this off of my friend/fellow bloggers blog Alexis. They have unfortunately been personally touched by this disease. Alexis, you and your family are all in my thoughts and prayers!

Most people know that February is American Heart Month. But did you know that within February is also CHD Awareness Week?

To read Alexis' own personal story, please visit her blog.

Each year, an estimated 1 in 100 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect; CHDs are the most common birth defect and the number one cause of death from birth defects during infancy. Nearly twice as many children die from congenital heart defects as from all childhood cancers combined, yet research for cancer receives five times the funding. This is due in large part to the lack of awareness most people have about congenital heart defects.

So what can you do to help?

  • If you blog, please make an entry helping to raise awareness. You can even link to her entry.
  • Place a button on your blog for the month.
  • If you are looking to give to a charity, think about donating to one that supports CHD research, such as the Children's Heart Foundation.
  • If you give to the American Heart Association, put “Zachary Brooks Foundation” in the memo designating that your funds will go to a foundation set up specifically for CHD heart awareness.
  • Wear read on February 14 to remember those who are affected by CHDs.
  • And if you have children, hug them a little tighter and thank God for the miracle and wonderful gift you have been given.
