Life Right Now
Obviously my last few posts have been a bit down. While part of me is so embarrassed for putting my feelings out there like that, this is my life right now. While I'm striving to keep a positive outlook, pretending that I feel well doesn't help matters. I'm trying to find a balance between accepting things as they are and continuing to find joy, even in hard times.
My doctor suspects that I have Lupus, but no firm diagnosis has been made. I've been referred to my mom's rheumatologist and am hoping he can help provide some answers.
This week I have lots of Christmas projects that I hope to complete. I'm feeling much stronger than last week, but I know how one busy day can set me back. I so hope to feel well and fully enjoy time with family this week of Christmas! Yesterday at church I was reminded of my theme for 2011: "There is HOPE smiling brightly before us." I am so grateful for my Savior who offers me hope and peace even in these challenging times.
