I see it

Friday night we got the phone call we'd been waiting on..

Sure, we already had a clinical diagnosis, which is really a guess.
But there was a little bit of me that was nervous it could still be something else, especially since Ben never recalled seeing a tic on him.
But it was confirmed...Lyme disease

Months of not knowing...but finally, validation for Ben.

Now he has good and bad days, but if I think back to even when he was first diagnosed, it's a big improvement.
So on the bad days, thats what keeps us going.
God has still been blessing us through others.
I don't even know how to begin to say thank you, but I plan to figure that out soon.

My eyes are wide open. I see the blessing all around me. I see it. I can't believe our marriage now, for the first time in years it really feels like we're on the same team. If I were completely honest I'd admit that this week I've even seen my children in a different way...a way I have felt robbed of many times as a mother...I've enjoyed them even in the thick of it.

We're putting the pieces back together....together
