TODAY

Did I say I was laughing about my latest drama? Today I'm not. In fact, I've been a bit weepy. Not sure why. Probably those darn hormones. Maybe it's because I'm in pain. Could be that this latest surgery is another reminder of what I've lost. Possibly my pain meds have worn off. All I know is that today I'm not feeling so well. Good thing I have that pint of Ben and Jerry's in my freezer. Thank you for being there Ben, you always know how to make things better Jerry. For that...my heart (and stomach) thanks you.

Ice cream can't fix everything - but it sure helps.
I only wish I had some great sage advice or some wonderful words of comfort for you.

Yesterday was my weepy day. Well it was more like the flood gates had opened up and I couldn't seem to close them. It is better today. So I figured it was a cleansing cry, even though I couldn't see most of the day due to the uncontrolable leaking. :P Don't be too hard on yourself. Love you Stacie

Cry, scream, eat, do whatever makes you heal and feel better.

You've been through a lot. You were worried about Ben and what to do about his rash, etc. Then you decided to give the doctors a run for their money (your money). It's o.k. to cry--you'll feel better. Just came back from church where we unloaded 1215 or so pumpkins for our pumpkin patch. The lawn looks great and so Fallish. Think pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows and smile. Love you.

I just wanted to tell you that I am sorry! I've had several times in my life when I didn't get to "say hello" either. (love that thought on your sidebar) It is not an easy thing to go through, and one that we never just "get over". It is now apart of you, and is part of what molds you and shapes into the daughter of God that he wants you to be.
Drown your sorrow and pain in that pint of Ben and Jerry, and know that God never gives us more than we can handle. It is so obvious that he has a lot of faith and trust in you.

You'll be in my prayers.

you have been through so much. Your poor body is trying so hard to heal...let alone the emotional healing.
CRY...it's ok. You can even call me, and cry to me. This time I'm not even kidding, I really would answer the phone.
You're strong and will resurface laughing, I just know it. Until then, weeping isn't a bad thing (as long as it's helping).
XOXO

Ben and Jerry are very compassionate that way. Have a pint for me. xoxo

Wow Becky, you've been through so much. But you're such an inspiration. I love all your posts. Keep them coming!

So much comfort comes from the talks at conference. When I feel like giving up, I read a talk to get me going again.

Becky, I just love you. You really are such a strong, great woman. I have always looked up to you and admire you for the woman, wife and mother that you are. I pray that you will have a few extra angels hanging around you this week. Also, Phish Food, from our mutual friends Ben and Jerry, is how I self medicate myself, so I hear ya.

I am so happy to hear that you have bad days, too. I know that sounds bad, but you are so strong and I wonder if I am just weak. I think about Trevee everyday. I miss having a fat tummy, as strange as it sounds, I want to have a fat tummy with a baby in it, not just the flub I am stuck with now. I love your spirit and I mourne and rejoince the lives of our sweet little ones with you!! Keep your head up. I know how special you are.
