Rough, rough, rough...still feeling rough.
Most of you know I had to make a trip to the hospital last week for fluids due to dehydration.
Gosh, I'm tired.

But happy to read this in my daily devotional email today:

I'm leaving you with a gift, peace of mind and heart.
And the peace that I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives.
So don't be troubled, don't be afraid.
John 14:27 LB

I have to work on a daily basis to rid my heart of this fear. Fear for my little peanut in my belly. Fear about neglecting Max while I've been so sick. Fear that my husband is going to get tired of taking care of me and just decide to walk out. Fear that my house will never be clean again. Fear that I will have to go back to the hospital because I am so very sick. Fear has taken over. But God's words are pushing out that fear...comforting me when there is nothing I need more. I WILL get through this. People have done it before me and they will continue to do it after my sweet little baby bean has entered this world and all this is a distant memory.

Oh Abbie I was hoping and praying this rough stage would get better for you! You WILL get through this and in the end you will look back and say I made it:) The things we do for a precious gift. Hang in there girl and I know your family wants to help take care of you!!!!

I know when my dad was on bedrest this past sept. to dec. he felt like he was going to go insane but we stayed at his side. I am not going to lie it was rough there for a while and he wasn't himself those few months. But in the end he made it...well we all made it and things did get back to normal. I hate to hear that you have fear but just remember family sticks together and things will start looking brighter. I know being a wife/mom you want to be there and I can understand how that would be so hard not being able to do the things you want to.
