7 Quick Takes (vol.9), from bad to good

1. Last week, I went to see my doctor for my yearly check up. I explained to her some issues that I have been experiencing at different times during the month. Because of my polycystic ovary syndrome and medical history, she has scheduled me for an endometrial biopsy in two weeks. I have had one before. The results indicated a thickening and polyps, so I needed surgery. I am dreading this biopsy, so would you mind praying for me?

2. Earlier this week I forgot to pay a bill. The only bill that I am in charge of paying. Of course, I beat myself up about forgetting to pay it!

7 Quick Takes (vol.8)

1. This year we are using Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology (Young Explorer Series)  for Thomas and Ralph's science curriculum. I have used different Young Explorer Series before in the past, and we enjoyed them. However, this is the first year that I purchased the lab set. It is a great kit as it comes with almost everything we need to complete the  lessons.

Fearless: My Word for 2014

While I was sitting in the sanctuary after Mass on Wednesday, a word popped into my head. Fearless. Immediately, I knew that fearless would be my word for 2014.

My entire life I have been afraid. My fears have mainly been about disappointing people and receiving ridicule and scorn.
When I was a girl growing up in my grandparents' home, I spent a lot of time feeling afraid. I lived in fear of my grandmother's degrading tongue and the bullying from a close family member. In school, I worried about what my teachers thought of me and wondered if my peers liked me. It was very hard for me to make friends. Thankfully, I made a few life long friends and met the love of my life.

Most Posts of 2013

Joining Sarah at Amongst Lovely Things for the Most Posts of 2013.

My blog has a very small readership, so the first two category winners are not great posts, but I did enjoy sharing them, and reading the comments I received. 

Post with the most clicks:  Yarn Along on July 3, 2013 
I always have a knitting project and a book or three that I am reading, so on Wednesdays I try to make time to yarn along.
