Just Being Real... and Recommended Links

...I feel like crap.

Just sayin'.

Recent recommendations:

Check Amy's Finer Things Blog for a great post about fertility... and please accept my apologies to anyone who thinks or I've somehow mislead to believe that I struggle with infertility and that's why I'm not a mom yet... that isn't it at all. And it has nothing to do with the Fibro although an underlying fear I have certainly is that I'm afraid I won't be able to care for any kids we have in the same way as when I wasn't sick... I'm afraid somedays I wouldn't be able to care for them at all and that scares me. But needless to say, neither of those things are why we don't have kids. But that doesn't make it any less of a struggle for me. And I don't pretend to compare my heartache to the heartache of infertility. To those struggling with this in a gracious, faith-filled manner, you have my utmost respect and admiration.

On that note, check Don and Sara's Blog for two great posts: one on trials and one on infertility

Check Giving Up on Perfect for a hilarious post about the mishaps that can happen when making slews of meatloaf

Check out Deliberately Domestic for a family portrait of my family away from family, and also a picture I took of the couple before they went out on Mother's Day. I am not the pro photographer Brian is, nor did I do a good job of reminding Brian to smile more :), but I think it turned out good! {although I'm sure B likely did some post-editing.} Aren't they so cute?!?!? Love them.

Check Deb's Fibromyalgia Blog for a great post on feeling fortuate.

I am personally thinking back at the My Thorn post from a while back. Reminding myself God allowed me to have Fibro for a reason. And trying to press on today through the pain, fatigue, and overwhelming out-of-body experience I feel like I'm having. Argh.

I shall come forth as gold."
