Last Thursday I was out running when I stumbled and fell. Running is not supposed to be a contact sport, but I guess I was trying to make it into one! I scraped myself up pretty good! Ended up having to take several days off from running to recuperate. My road rash is still healing and my left knee is a sickly shade of yellow and purple, but I got back out there yesterday. Trying hard to take it easy. Not something I do well!
That same day, I got word that my dad's brother died. He had been fighting a 2 year battle with cancer. I'm glad to be able to say that Uncle David had a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. He performed the wedding service for MyHero's and my wedding. In his last days, he had taken to having a weekly church service for all the family in his home. Even my dad, who had not been to church in years, attended. What a wonderful legacy to leave!! He will be greatly missed by many! I can't wait to be able to visit with him again in heaven!! Please pray for my Aunt Debi and my cousins and their children as well as the rest of my family. They will be grieving for some time yet.
This week I have been plagued by migraines. They have made it difficult to monitor school progress. Yesterday, I was helping RoboBoy with his school work when I got slammed with a migraine. It had been gradually coming on for an hour or so, but suddenly became unbearable. I told RoboBoy that he would have to do his best on his own with his school, then I took my prescription and went to bed. So far today I'm feeling better. Such is the life of a homeschool mom!
