So, I haven't been able to blog for a few days due to my hubby being admitted into the hospital. He went to the ER Wednesday around noon and was admitted for chest pain. I was so worried, home with 3 kids my parents live an hour away and obviously I can't take little kids into the ER where he was kept, needless to say I WAS STRESSING!! I tend to either get really worried when things happen or I kinda shut down and try to ignore it as if it will go away, NOT! So my hubby had a whole workup down along with bloodwork, EKG, Stress test and check for clots. The diagnosis was STRESS. The Doc said it can and will cause physical problems, which we all know, and it is something we really need to try and control. There are many factors that play into it however we are really trying to live a stress free life. Wonder how hard this will be! I am reminded of the scripture Phillipians 4:6 "Do NOT be anxious about anything" Well that is easier said then done. We are going to try though. Sometimes there are things you have to limit in your life or people you have to limit your contact with in order to be stress free. So many things that are actually painful to remove. Hubby is home now and we are working on the things that cause us the most stress and cutting them out! I am praying that the Lord help us because we will need it. Life is too short so why be stressed so much, why give any of your time to things that just upset us? It seems so silly when you think about it. If we were to count the amount of minutes, hours or even days we stress it would such a shame to think that was time we could have used for happy things. Making happy memories instead of being angry or upset. Please remember my family in your prayers and I will keep everyone in mine. Life can really be difficult. We need to surround ourselves with people who lift our spirits and not bring them down.


  1. I am so sorry!!! We will be praying for him and all of you as you find ways to simplify and de-stress your life.

    We had to make A LOT of changes at our house over the last several months too...Will was diagnosed with a seizure disorder that is triggered by stress and lack of sleep (often caused by stress)mainly. So I understand having to make the changes.

    I am so sorry you are all having to go through this...but in a year from now...when you have done the hard work of de-stressing your lives will make such a great difference for all of you.

    Praying for you all!
