Who writes this stuff?
- I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure. I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at firstname.lastname@example.org

It is a huge relief to feel physicaly better. Mentally, I am still processing all of this. I think that I am still just so relieved that I DON'T have a brain tumor that I am truly and honestly happy to have migraines! Now that I have gone almost a whole week with out any visits to my "alternate reality", no blackouts, no intense moments of deja vu... I can say that I am feeling much more stable. I still spend a large portion of my day dizzy or with my eyes "fluttering", but, as those are a much lesser problem, I think that I am beginning to feel sane again. It is a beautiful thing!
Thank you for prayers and for encouragement. I am continualy amazed by the ways my Savior sneaks grace into my life and suprises me with Joy when I have quit expecting it, and least deserve it. Thank you for sharing my Joy with me, and for making it multiply.

Four years later... a little update. They weren't migraines. They were later diagnosed as localized partial seizures... although I think they change their mind on what to call them every time I see a different neurologist!

I sincerely hope that the rest of the day and week go better... do not get discouraged, you ARE doing the right thing. Little boys (and girls) pee (or poop.. Mary at the mall) their pants and run around naked (Emilee) and write sloppy (Mary Faith STILL) and have trouble reading (Kelsey) and break bones (Emilee again)and get lost (Mary again) and yell at their sibling (probably all of you at one time or another). BUT you are doing the right thing and it is wonderful and they grow up really quickly and leave the house and then you are alone and reading for a few days is nice then you want to hear all the noise and laughter and you get sad and decide to just go and visit the grandkids so you can experience all that you get tired of right now.. again...I LOVE YOU MOM!
