HooooRay!

Today is most definately a day that I will write on the calendar. As you know this has been a super yucky summer for me. This whole adrenal fatigue thing has wiped me out both physically and mentally. No energy, no clarity of mind, LOADS of anxiety attacks and so on.
BUT. . . .
Today I woke up with engergy and clarity. I am really feeling like a new person. I took all those things seriously for granted. It's like a dark, ugly cloud is lifting and all I can say is THANK YOU LORD! I just hope it all lasts. I'm still learning to cut myself some slack. I am what I am. I've always been a bit of a perfectionist. I always will be, but it's okay if things aren't perfect all the time. Right?
We put off our vacation later this month and broke the news to the kids a few weeks ago. I'm hoping now that just maybe we can put those plans back into action and still go. I actually feel like going now.
Dave and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary yesterday. I was going to post a wedding picture, but they are all packed in a box up in the attic. Sorry---I'm not digging that out. Trust me, we love each other so much more now than then. We've had some really hard years, but we stuck to our vows and we have been blessed for it. We're older. . . . Dave is really grayer (not me--tee-hee-hee, I still have the same color hair I did 19 years ago, with no help). . . we are wiser. . . we are more in love than even we could have imagined. I'm a very lucky lady!
We are bringing some fun and awareness to Breast Cancer this month on the SHIMMERZ blog. So put your pink on and come have some fun with us. Skip on over to the blog for the details. We're giving away 16 prizes at the end of the month. http://shimmerzpaints.blogspot.com You don't have to be a pro stamper or scrapper, just show us your pink.
