To remember

I started this blog to remember; a diary of sorts (I know I've said it before...).

My lack of updating means I already forgot to remember many things.
Honestly now, there's not much I want to remember. I dread coming home in the evenings to sickness, depression and the unknown of what the day has to bring.
I never thought I'd see the day when I'd prefer to be at to work, rather than home.

But, (yes, there's a but) I choose to remember these things:

-Anna and Emma chipping in to watch their brother, taking turns sleeping with him every night so I can do my 'me' things.

-my mom helping with everything, from ironing, to babysitting, to listening to me complain all the time.

-the support of my friends, the offers of help, and loads of prayers

-my kids' laughter in the house, to make me realize that sometimes home isn't such a sad place these days.

Remembering the good things gives us hope for tomorrow. It seems I'm working an awful lot, but because of that when I have my days off I just need to unwind. 4 12hr shifts gets to you! Takes me 4 days to recover! My posts have been a bit bland because of lack of anything interesting to post. I'm sure theres a light at the end of this duldrum tunnel. Keep in touch!

I appreciate your thankfulness, but you must remember I enjoy doing things for you and your family, especially during this time of our lives. And, you do not complain, you simply state things as they are. You are a brave woman, who is weathering the storm with compassion and strength, and I love you. MOM

I wish we lived closer because I would so be helping you when and where I could.
But since we don't... I'm thinking about and praying for you and your family all the time. :)

Renee, I remember when your Mom was going through this and your Dad would be worried at work about her. Sometimes it is harder on the person watching and can't do anything about it. He use to tell me, "Sister Laurie", I hope you are praying, and you know I was. I got a feeling "Pope John of Ventress" is on your side right now.Take Care of yourself. Ms. Laurie

Scott from diyfather.com here – I’m one of the authors of “Call Me Dad!” a practical guide for expectant / new fathers. We believe our book is a unique take on parenting from a male perspective – it’s practical, to-the-point and funny. It’s just a great read and makes for a perfect gift for all dads-to-be.
The book is sold by offline and online resellers but we are also selling it directly on our website and we offer a commission of $2.50 per sale for other sites who link to our site. We thought your site has a good fit with our target audience and so I was wondering whether you’d be interested in joining our affiliate programme (www.diyfather.com/affiliate)?
Best wishes, Scott
