It's My Birthday and I'll...

So the song says that I can cry if I want to... Maybe I should? No, no test results or anything. I'm just in a real junk mood and I feel bad about it. I've had over a dozen Happy Birthday wishes from friends on Facebook. My family has all called me. And Leif has been wonderful as usual. So I feel very loved. But I feel blah too.

I think I'm going to switch my birthday to tomorrow. Maybe I'll feel better. Right now I feel like a smelly dishrag, not very fun to be around wouldn't you say!? Funny analogy:) It just came to me. Maybe it's the dishes still in the sick calling to me that gave me the thought. Ugg, I really dislike dishes. However, I did get some of them done last night as Leif read the final chapters of my book to me. That was Very Nice!! He has said that he'll wash them. But he's done EVERYTHING else today and the hours are slipping away. I've just woke up from a nap. I usually have more energy for a few hours after my nap. We'll see what happens.

Leif is going to take me out to dinner and a movie (Tangled is in town.) But grandma isn't off work in time tonight. So like I said, I think I'll move my birthday celebrations to tomorrow.

Well, just crying here has helped a bit. Don't worry. I'm just fine. Just in a bit of a funk and ready to feel all better. It's time to get this mama better!! The (Celiac Disease) test results should be in by Monday or Tuesday. I hoped they'd be in today. ANYWAY, thank you sweet friends and family for your Happy Birthday Love, I've felt it! Even if this post doesn't show it!

More Blood: For The Record

Blood always seems to grab our attention doesn't it? Not that that was my point in putting it in my title. I just grew up trying to make a good headline for my papers as that was something my dad always tried to help me with (he was a Chief Copy Editor for the Deseret News.)

ANYWAY: I went to the doctor again today to try to brain storm on what might be going on with my health. I know it's not just fibromyalgia, if at all. I Can Not be sick any more!!! My family needs me at full capacity. I'm praying that we have struck gold this time. We have concluded that it is highly possible that I have Celiac Disease (An autoimmune disease caused by a negative reaction to the protein in grains called gluten.) So I'll go give blood to test for: Celiac disease, Mono, Anemia, B 12, and Thyroid. None of these are fun. But for a person who has been sickly their whole life, a clear answer with a clear solution is WONDERFUL!

A Good Day!

Ahhh, a good day! Such a blessing! Last week I actually made it to sacrament meeting. Being the last Sunday of the year they announced the usual time change for church. Our meeting starts at 9:00 AM. I turned to Leif and whispered "I will need a priesthood blessing to get me to church next year. He smiled. I assured him that I was very serious. I ended with telling him that I had asked, and that it was up to him to follow up with me and give me the blessing." And then I didn't think about it again. In fact, the last week was such a rough one that I had already pretty much decided that I wouldn't be making it to church this morning. And then Leif surprised me last night and reminded me that I had requested a blessing. Such a dear gift he is!

I was told to be a light unto all this year and to push forward with all of my might and then I would be blessed with angels along side me to help me when I needed help. A true blessing.

So, I woke up this morning and went to church. I was well enough to go! I know where that gift came from. How grateful I am for a Father in Heaven who knows my needs. We had a great meeting. Jakob and Leif bore their testimonies. What more could a mama ask for then to hear her little one speak of his love for family and God?

My precious co-teacher ((Teressa Johnson) and I met our new little Sunbeams today. Just three years old they are jewels. One little boy kept whispering to me, "Jesus wants ME for a Sunbeam!" Oh how true he is!

Now I'm sitting at my kitchen table. Typing on my new net book that I used (in my kitchen)) to read THIS recipe. The yummy food is settling and we're about to partake of a YUMMY meal together!

Yes, a good day indeed!
