More than just a broken foot...
I just realized from the angle of the picture that it looks like I injured my left foot.... well, it's actually the right. I can't drive. I've woken up in agonizing pain several times through the night.
It's interesting having physical and emotional pain at the same time. This week-end (the 7th) would have been my sister Libby's 26th birthday. I've been grieving all week. Just needing God in such a deep and desperate way right now.
Please pray for us. It's been a real hard week. Mike is officially out of a job. Yesterday with the foot injury and then the battery died in the van...and well, missing my sister more than words can say. I've experienced burn out this week but now I just laugh because as Mike puts it, "this is absurd". It really is.
I'm getting some blood work done this morning. So I'm fasting. Did I mention I'm hungry? And grumpy? :)
Hoping to still get away this week-end. We're hoping to go to Mike's parents beach house (thanks Faf & Daddy Mike (mom & dad!) I know I might be crawling up the steps but I think I need the ocean to heal. To heal my foot. To heal my heart. To heal my mind.
I'm so raw and sensitive right now. Emotionally, mentally, physically.
So would you guys please pray for me? And if you feel led could you drop me some encouragement? I really could use it.
