Still searching…

Hi there friends! Happy Wednesday!
How has your first week of spring been going?  It has been a bit of a roller coaster over here in my little part of the world.  If you missed it last week, I did a little update on my health.
I received my results back from my doctor.  Honestly it was hard at first to receive the news.  Not because anything was really terrible. In fact, most of this round of tests came back normal or good, except 1.  And that really means nothing.  Nothing was ruled out and nothing was diagnosed.  So now more in depth blood work will be ordered within the next few days to a week.  My doc is out of the office a few days this week, so I have been slightly obsessively checking my email to see if she sent another message.
When I first saw the results I was really frustrated, and I still am in a way.  I know that this is going to be a bit of a process to really narrow things down and figure out exactly what is going on, but I had some hope that we would find some things out sooner rather than later.  I have to admit that my hope was a bit dashed.  I am really thankful for some sweet friends who poured love and support into me and reminded me that we are on the right path, even though it might feel discouraging at the time.
Despite feeling discouraged I do still have many things I am thankful for and grateful for, and I am working on staying focused on those things!

The ability to continue working out and having some kick butt workouts this week!


Some fun recipe testing and yummy meals!

Constant gifts from my nanny kiddos and beautiful sunsets!

My ability to paint and decorate- Working on the guest room and making my first ever purple wall!

And my supportive husband, my loving friends and family, my church family, my social media friends (you), and of course my doctor who is doing all she can to get to the bottom of all these health issues.

Being thankful is a much better option that staying hopeless!

May you be filled with joy and health!

    It’s definitely better to be thankful than hopeless! And it looks like you’re doing a great job. That purple wall is GORGEOUS. I’d love to see what the finished room looks like! Keep your chin up 🙂

    The waiting is the hardest part. But never give up hope and don’t immediately think the worst. Looks like you’re staying positive. I love the purple wall too!
