I was so excited about One World One Heart- Last year, I visited over 900 blogs, met some amazing artists, and had a fabulous time. I barely noticed that I didn't actually win anything- because I felt so much richer for having experienced it... and I couldn't wait to take part in it again this year.....
Then, I got sick. Not just a little sick. Super Duper Sick. The kind of sick where you can't even go to the doctor because you can't stand up. Ever since my son started day care, the family has been battling one illness or another. My husband finally convinced me to go to see my doctor, who immediately put me in a wheel chair and took my to the emergency room next door. I received tons of tests, a couple of bags of IV fluids, and they waited for my blood pressure to normalize so I could go home. What a mess!
Before you have kids, I don't think you realize how good you have it when you are sick. The days of just lying in bed moaning are long gone. Someone always needs you, whether you are sick or not. My son and daughter don't understand my limitations- they only know what they need. My husband made a valiant effort to give me space to get better, but he is only human- He took wonderful care of the children, but our home looked a bit like it had been ransacked by pirates. So after a week of feeling like utter death, I needed to heal quickly so I could begin to deal with the aftermath.
All this being said, I missed One World One Heart. I remember at one point, sitting at the computer and trying to complete a post- and realizing that I couldn't. I am beginning to trust in myself- and realize that I can't do everything. I can only do my best- which changes from day to day.But I do want to post a give away- maybe a Valentines Day Giveaway:-) So, I am giving a way a pair of 5 x 7 prints- my hope and dream monsters. If you would like to enter, just leave a comment below. I will choose a winner on February 28th at midnight. I will probably include a couple of other goodies in your package, just because I am like that. Hope to hear from you!
