{This Moment} Gratitude

April 22, 2011

Sometimes I wish I could convey what a picture really means, how I will cherish it as long as I can and will always remember the emotions that I felt when it was taken.

My dad had a surgical procedure on his spine on Monday that seemed to go just fine, and yesterday morning at 4:30 he was rushed to the hospital because he was paralyzed from the waist down from a blood clot. He was taken back into surgery, and for those few hours that we had no idea what the damage was, well it felt like eternity. We were lucky, he was lucky, the damage is minimal and he will be able to walk again.

Seeing him with Landon filled my heart with the greatest sense of gratitude. I realize how often I take for granted the fact that my family is here. I know that things can change in an instant, and that we can never tell someone “I Love You” enough.

I wish all those celebrating a very Happy Easter, and to everyone a blessed weekend ahead.


Right Now I Am: Tending

April 14, 2011

Tending to three children with Rotavirus, two of whom are recovering nicely, and one who is on day 5 of no eating, and is beginning to worry his mama to no end.

Elwood has been hit the hardest with this bug, with Jacob already having had Rota when he was 18 months, and Landon breastfeeding non-stop, they are both coming through much better than my poor Elwood. We are still holding out hope of keeping him out of the hospital, and a huge thank you to Bernadette for her hydration drink recipe. I am not sure where she found this, but even our pediatrician was impressed with it, and encouraged us to keep a cup going for Elwood throughout the day and night.

I am sorry for not posting about the winners of the Alphabet Glue giveaway before now, but they will be at the bottom of the original post by later this afternoon, and the winners emailed. I wish you all a week of health and happiness, and I will look forward to a return next week.

Bernadette’s Hydration Recipe
1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup honey (or to taste)
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 calcium/magneisum tablets, crushed
water to make 4 cups


*Please note that this is a simple recipe that my family has used, please check with your doctor or naturopath in Las Vegas before giving to your child. A child under the age of 12 months should never be given honey.
