Embrace

To give myself some time to more fully appreciate real life I'm taking a small blogging break. It's been a weird week as my husband was in the ER last week.We are glad it's nothing serious, it's Bell's Palsy. Which means the right side of his face is paralyzed - temporarily! It should resolve in a few weeks but I'm on over load for some reason.

Happy, no. Thrilled, no. Ecstatic, no. There isn't a positive enough word for what I am that he didn't have a stroke, doesn't have a tumor or MS or any other life altering/threatening issue. Just adjusting to what this is and praying it too shall pass...

In the mean time I'm just embracing my laugh lines, (and family a bit tighter) and making more! More laugh lines that is - not making more family members or anything ;)

Oh Heidi! I'm so glad it isn't any of those more serious afflictions but scary none-the-less.

I hope it passes quickly and that you enjoy your break.

xo,
Ashlee

My husband had Bell's Palsy several years ago, and it gradually got better over a few weeks time. I know how frightening it is when that happens and you don't know what it is! What a blessing that it isn't something more serious. It certainly makes you appreciate what you have when you are faced with something like that. It's great to keep laughing and embracing your family!
Blessings,
Connie

How terrible, glad it wasn't serious. But still, very scary. Take care of him, and you, and your kids, you're all in my thoughts.

I understand the sentiments - and am so glad everything's okay - or maybe it's better said that it's nothing terrible. Take care and hang in there!

Wow, even though it isn't serious that is still a bit scary.

I love the photos. Especially the last one.

I hope he's doing well! I've known people with that before, too. I pray all is ok! And I'm taking my own version of a bloggy break soon.
