It started with my ear feeling like it was closing up, then I all but lost my hearing except for a very high-pitched ringing that is pretty much CONSTANT.
I’ve seen two doctors and have been on two rounds of steroids, and I swear, I think I’m losing my mind.
This ringing is driving me bonkers.
Feel sorry for me..but feel more sorry for all my peeps. Mama has been CrAnKy.
When I’m not cranky, I’m crying my eyeballs out because of these ding-dong steroids.
I finally get to see an ENT tomorrow afternoon…please pray with me for answers!!
Thank God for the beautiful weekend we had here in Georgia. It was blue skies & a cool breeze all weekend.
It helped me to get some perspective. Oh, who am I kidding.
I was so aggravated that I didn’t feel like getting out in it and enjoying it.
I managed to get out of my pjs long enough to run to Trader Joes, and those fresh tulips called my name.
They promised to cheer me up, and you know what, they didn’t lie, because every time I looked at them, I smiled.
I managed to bake my first ever key-lime poundcake with a key-lime glaze drizzled all over it.
It’s my sweet mom’s 65th birthday today, and our family got together to celebrate her yesterday afternoon.
I could write a book on this woman. She’s strong and brave and resilient. She’s honest, humble and reliable.
She loves others well and she also has learned to persevere in suffering through a lung disease.
She struggles to breathe, yet she never complains.
Meanwhile, I have a nagging high-pitched ringing in my ear for ten days, and I can’t stop crying about it.
Lord, I thank you for my mom’s life.
I thank you for the years you’ve given us with her that they said we wouldn’t have.
You could have made her anyone’s mom, but you gave her to us. Thank you!!!
Thank you for the impact that her influence has had in our lives and in the lives of our children.
Lord, continue to give her peace as she trusts you with her health. Help us to trust you with her days.
Help us to love and serve her well.
Lord, thank you for the woman you’ve made her to be. Thank you for her story.
Thank you for drawing her to yourself in such a sweet way and for being her peace & joy.
