This is a difficult post for me to write not because the subject is difficult, but because I’m writing while in the grip of much pain and in the fog of medication. Such is my situation right now due to my chronic illness made worse by the serious car accident we were in.
A shortened version of this post originally appeared on Christian Mommy Blogger. I am unfortunately really struggling with my fibromyalgia as a result from the car accident and so to give my concussion some time to heal, I thought I’d share these thoughts with you since the topic of living significantly is so important. We’d appreciate your prayers as we try to heal!
I was on the receiving end of some mommy judgment recently. It was beyond stupid since, like most mommy judgment, the subject really didn’t matter. It got under my skin, though, since I’m running tired. And by running tired, I mean feel like I could collapse at any moment kind of exhausted.

Last week was a really hard week as we’ve been recovering slowly from the accident last Saturday. It’s made me appreciate the gift of each day and want to make the most of all the time that we are given.
In light of all this, I wanted to share a quote by one of my heroes:
I am alive. My husband is alive. My kids are all alive.
I am so incredibly thankful right now.
Usually the first Monday of the month I post about one of my favorite influential books, but Saturday changed things. We were going to a music festival downtown when an elderly lady tried to make a left turn. Right in front of us.
