Autumn 2016


It is beginning to look alot like autumn out here in Nebraska. The weather is chilly, thunderstorms frequently make an appearance, and school has begun. I am grateful that Maury doesn’t have an overloading school schedule this semester and is experiencing pediatric nursing during clinical’s (which hits home for him now).  I am a woman that needs to trust in God more than I do right now. Maury has been experiencing pain in his left knee and so he has not be cleared to wrestle. Yesterday, the doctor informed us that his meniscus had been torn. He will be having a surgery and will literally only be down for a day. So, the recovery is not hard and that makes me happy, but i honestly just don’t like the thought of him being put under. I am not very fond of drugs and anesthetic drugs are strong. That is the thing I’m most worried about. If Maury and his coach decide he can wrestle, he will begin wrestling in December, so he would loose a month of mat time. Either that, or he red shirts this year, which means he would not wrestle this year and would wrestle next year instead. Maury assures me that this surgery is minor and it seems like it is, I am just not to fond of any of it. Anyway, I am praying for wisdom in this situation and also for God to calm my worrisome heart.

On a high note, Lila is finally giggling!!!! It is the most adorable thing ever!! She is currently asleep (knocked out) in her swing. In the morning she literally always demands for me to play my guitar and if I stop while I’m playing she will cry. She sings along, smiles, and laughs while I play and in the end falls asleep. My voice calms her down when she is fussy and that could be because I played my guitar and sang while she was still in my belly.

I am passing the days with chores, cocoa peppermint coffee, candles, and the making of Ezekiel bread. So far, only one loaf turned out good! I love this time of year and can not wait till the leaves change color. Halloween is just around the corner and then thanksgiving!!! We are ready for the holiday’s and I know Maury is excited for the snow again as well. Maybe this year we will actually make a snowman!!! lila-and-mama-2016-autumn
