That's all for now...

Annie's in school full days now, and she's been relatively stable for awhile. So now that I have all this free time to do laundry, pull weeds and wash bathrooms, I'm also going to get my act together and write a book. It may end up being more of a pamphlet, or a paragraph, but I'm going to start. Tomorrow at the latest.

What this means for the blog, is I'm going to be updating it only about once a month. Of course, in the event that Annie starts doing cartwheels or eats ice cream I'll update it sooner. Meanwhile, I want to thank you all for your continued prayers for Annie and our family--as often as you think of us, we still need them! And if you ever want to know something about Addison's Disease, seizures, or brain injury just post your question and I'll try to help.

Will keep praying until Annie is totally healed! I'll miss hearing from you, but your book will be amazing, and I can't wait to read it.

Jean said...

Thank you, Vern & Audrey--it means so much to me that you won't give up praying for her healing. I know He is able to do it, and until she is healed, I'll keep asking, too!

Well, I'll be a little wistful when I look at Annie's blog on my google reader & see it "empty". But I'm so glad you're moving forward with this, Jean. Working on the other contact I told you about. Hugs & prayers, prayers & hugs.

My computer time just wont' be the same without your wit and wisdom, Jean. But when that book comes out, I can say "I knew that lady when...."!

Praying praying praying...

love you all.

Jean said...

Thanks for your faithful prayers and wise encouragement, Gretchen. Hugs back to you!

Pam--Just imagine the blog to be like a magazine that comes out once a month. Kinda like Vogue without the skinny model. Or Martha Stewart Living without the beautiful food on the front. Yeah, it'll be a good thing. XO

see, now we know you ARE superwoman, because superwoman survives, cooks, does laundry AND writes a book about it. Let's do coffee soon, you can give me spoilers.

Jean said...

Teena--no, Superwoman homeschools!! And, yes, let's do coffee soon. We live in Seattle--we ARE coffee!

Jean, I will miss reading your blogs and will wait for the monthly blog anxiously. Am praying for your endeavor with the book writing. I know it is going to be awesome and point people to Jesus who is the Redeemer of all situations! Lots of Love, Cindy N

Jean said...

Well, thanks, Jeff, Bek & Cindy--This is almost like telling someone you've started a diet!! I so appreciate your support & prayers--and I AM working on my paragraphs. ;)

I have been so out of the loop when does the book come out. I will keep praying for Annie till she is healed. Plus I will keep on praying for you to Jean and the rest of the family.

Definitely going to miss the updates but I am so happy that you are going forward with your book/pamphlet Jean! Erma Bombeck may have met her match with all of your wit and wisdom. I am sure that I will laugh, cry and think a lot when I read it. Thank you for all you have given me through this blog. You and yours are in my prayers. I can't wait for the day that Annie walks up and plays with Emma and Sarah. Love you!
