I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with life a bit lately. DH got right to the final stage with a job, but the other candidate was chosen in the end (background tallied more closely with the company). Sooner or later it will have to be our turn! There are some other opportunities on the go that are of great interest to DH, so we’ll see. Meanwhile I feel like a compass spinning and spinning. I hope we will settle soon and start to move on in a direction. The stress is getting to me – not only is my blog writing far behind, but my eating habits are a disaster! I can’t have saltine crackers in the house or I will eat an entire sleeve with butter & jam. I’ve been drinking waaaay too much Tim Horton’s coffee. My new strategy is to buy lots of veggies instead, though somehow I don’t crave them the same way.
Other news that has been taking up alot of my emotional space – if you have prayers, positive vibes, or love you can send out to a 5-year old girl named Catherine, it would be so appreciated. Through my circle of friends I became acquainted with Catherine’s mom, and our paths have crossed quite a few times. Catherine was diagnosed with cancer and will be undergoing 5 more rounds of chemo, etc. to fight the tumours. Any details I know have come fourth hand, but I heard it was neuroblastoma – which is not a good one. The prognosis is not sounding good. Catherine is a fiesty, energetic little girl and the last person I’d have thought would get sick. As you can imagine it is terribly hard for the whole family, including the little brother (maybe 2 years old?) who is currently living with a family member.
Please think of them in this terrible time, and send them healing, supportive thoughts, prayers or whatever you may have to send.
