My Love Dare and other ramblings

is a bit on hold or has been yesterday and today. I have been feeling very unwell and still battling a headache off and on. I suspect I am entering perimenopause as all my symptoms coincided with day 1 of my monthly friend. I have had no energy, felt horrid and battled a headache all week. Sometimes the headache is severe, sometimes bearable and severe dehibilitating cramping. In any case, today I feel a bit better but still struggling with a headache that will not go away. It isn't severe but enough to make me tired and have no energy.

Thinking about the possibility of perimenopause makes me feel ill. LOL. I am only 41! I am not ready for this. I don't look forward to it at all. The kids have noticed mommy doesn't feel well this week. All 3 of them have come up to me at different times to pray for me. They put their little hands on my head and prayed in their precious, simple, child faith for Mommy. What a gift. Last night I was lying on the couch....the kids watching Disney and Jennifer comes up to me and says "I wubs you so much mommy". I still had the headache but those precious words were like balm to my soul. My husband knows I am not feeling well and is being very sweet and supportive.

So while I may not be doing the daily love tasks I am trying to keep the attitude behind the love dare in my heart until I can return to the tasks.

Christopher's asthma is on the verge of going bad. He is wheezing and coughing and not moving air well. We have upped his breathing treatments and he is now on oral steroids which we had on hand. We are being very aggressive with his treatments. We learned long ago this is the best option with him. We have to fight when he gets like this to keep him home. So far he is doing pretty well considering. Thursday night he was crying with chest pain from the effort to breathe. At least his pain is better.

I hope to be up to blogging again daily, soon. I just haven't felt like being on the computer, reading or watching tv or any of those type things. I have done good to care for the kids and keep the house somewhat in tolerable order. I really need to feel better because being side lined is no fun. I feel useless. But I know this is temporary and I will probably feel better this next week. My exercise has not even been on the radar screen.

That is all for my headachey induced rambling. So if this post doesn't make a lot of sense....I am sorry. Now off to take some tylenol...again.

I hope you get to feeling better very soon!

I also hope that Christopher gets better.

So sweet that you kiddos are praying for you! I can't wait to watch my little one's pray!
