If you have read either of my books, you would remember that I said to always keep your blogs “happy places to visit.” Well, sometimes there are exceptions. This is one of them. I decided that in the midst of what is going on, I would tell you what’s happening “behind the scenes” right now.
My husband and I met 7 years ago. At the time we met, he was an amputee...He had a below-the-elbow amputation caused by a work accident many years ago. He is a power lineman and he had gotten electrocuted when he was in his early thirties.
At the time of his accident, it was not easy for him to adjust to his circumstances, but being the hard worker that he is, he never gave up. After a long time in intensive care, he returned to work and climbed power poles and did all of his work one-handed. He was determined.
A couple of weeks ago, he was out of state at work and got hurt on the job. As if things could not be any harder for him, he injured his other arm. We found out today that he has to have surgery, requiring him to lose all use of his other arm during the long recuperation period.
You all know me so well that it didn’t seem right to leave all of this out of my blog because I believe this will be a long road ahead. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. If you know any angels personally, please ask them to pay a visit to Louisiana.
In the next few weeks and months, if I don’t get to each and every one of your blogs personally, please understand that I will be greatly needed around here.
And after you read this, I hope that those of you who are in relationships will hug your loved one a little tighter. A hug is a gift--trust me. We never know what will happen in life.
I will still be working from home, so if you need blog buttons or headers, I will definitely be available to create them. Because I knew that this surgery might be possibility, in the last 2 weeks, I completed all of my projects for my design teams through Christmas. So, of course, these will be in my posts.
I love my new scrapbooking program, so since I will be home alot, I will still be making layouts and showing them to you. If you want a scrapbooking program for yourself, you can save $10 with my coupon code STMMMS19107. My Memories button is at the top of my right sidebar.
