Stand by

Everything is up in the air. It's like we're watching these little puzzle pieces of life hang in the air for a moment, about to come back down, and wondering where they will land. This should be fun...

We're under contract on a house, in case you didn't know. The inspection is today.

I've started writing posts about this process because I want to record and remember this season of life, but those posts sit unpublished. It was either holding off on publishing them until and IF there is a closing on this specific house, or I thought about making my blog temporarily private.

In the age of Google, I just want to keep the details to myself until things are said and done. {Look at me, being private for once!...Sort of.}

Plus, if I'd have made my blog temporarily private, I'd have had to send out one a million email invites to my mom all those people who read my blog.

My own mom hasn't commented on my blog since August 19th, 2013. True story. In the world of blogging, I've sunk to a new low.  Even my mother won't comment.

Anyway, Mom, you can expect to read those posts, post-dated. Please, don't comment.

{She always says, when I tease her about not commenting, "I know you don't really want your mother to comment on your blog all the time! I probably would just embarrass you."}


So another thing up in the air is Violet and her injury. Again! I have to be private here. Very odd for me. I'll tell any one almost anything about myself, if they just ask me.

You might be aware of the fact that she was injured. She hasn't walked since the injury happened, I'm not at all exaggerating. It's upsetting to see the child who started walking at 8 months of age and has not stopped since...stop.

I really have a lot to say about what happened and my feelings about it, but I can't for now. Not until she's 100% recovered. Right now, we're looking at more doctor appointments, I'll say that. I'll also add that yes, we were right there and witnessed what happened. It was a very scary thing to see. Also, no, Violet was not doing anything she shouldn't have been doing. As for the details...I'll 'splain later, mmkay?


So, file this under things only parents say:

"The Bible says you were fearfully and wonderfully made by God...so no, Eisley, your brains won't drip out of your nose."

She has a cold and lots of questions. Always lots of questions.

I love being able to work in some scripture when she asks questions, and I often use God to comfort her {i.e. "No, God didn't even make monsters that could hide in your closet."} But sometimes they make for some interesting conversations, like how God made sure when He was creating us that our brains wouldn't slide out of our noses, no matter how hard we blow.

Got to love those small minded folk, children.

"Aww, that's so sweet," said Eisley, as Justin kissed me goodbye this morning.

So, hopefully all goes well at the inspection. As for now, regarding everything, please stand by.

  1. Heather, hang in there! God will never give you more challenges with Violet than he gives you equal patience to match. Been there. Our "dressers are not stairs" lesson 10 years ago is still as nightmarish to think about today as it was back then. Trust that God made the Viv extra resilient and in due time she'll be back to normal. Rhonda

  2. You are full of suspense today! I look forward to hearing more about the house and keeping you in my prayers as well as my fingers crossed!! I'll also pray for Violet... and the drama queen in me definitely is wanting to know the details of her injury... :/ But only when and IF you are ready to share

    1. I will DEFINITELY be blogging about that whole story when and as soon as I can, Isabel! I'd even share it with you now via email anyway. It's just that I don't want anything going public that this insurance company could possibly use against me. Right now, we're waiting for the completion of medical treatment ;-)

  3. I'm excited for you, yet anxious for you too. I know that patience in these situations can be so difficult at times. Hang in there. And have a glass of wine. Cheers!

    1. Thanks so much, DeAnn! Impatience is near the top of my list of worst character flaws, it's true.

  4. So sorry to hear about little Violet! Hope she is back to her self soon! On the other hand I'm super excited for you about the house! I pray that you will have answers to both soon! Hang in there!
