Michael Buble Everything So, I took a few days off. Which turned into two weeks really. I feel fine. I feel good actually and so I'm back to work at my day job and back to sewing this week. This little quilt was made for a baby shower gift - hope the new Mom loves it.
My little ordeal gave me a bit of a chill...you know the one where you go, "whew, that was a close one! Could have been way worse". Last time I had some heart issues, I was in the hospital for 4 days and then on meds for a year. This time, I said no thanks to the meds and asked to go home as soon as I was in normal sinus rhythm. And they said ok and then talked about what a bad patient I was out in the hall - like I couldn't hear them through the curtain. "Well, I told her, she's a big girl and can make her own decisions. If she wants to run out of here and have a pulmonary embolism or a stroke, it's on her." Thanks. Honestly, feel fine. Not even a rare blip or thud out of my heart - all is as quiet as a mouse. Stress just caught up with me I guess and so I need to be still a bit more often and slow down.
I went home and took a few deep breaths and thanked God for all the gifts I have in my life. My sweet sexy husband - ya know what he did for me? He took a week off with me after I got home AND he cleaned out our garage which I have been talking about for 2 months. Ohhh, how I love a man who can clean! AND he bought me a haunted house for Halloween - my favorite day of the year! The Tunnel of Terror - so sweet! And I hugged my little Sophia for days and days because I realized that the stress I put my body under caused me to get so sick that I couldn't take care of her. And that made me feel terrible. So, slow and easy. And loving all my girls and my husband to pieces.
Are you a Micheal Buble fan? Who isn't?! When I got home, it just made me think of one of his songs, Everything - I change one of the words out of it...instead of "be your man...I say, be your Mom". I wrote the lyrics below but if you don't have this on your ipod - get it! Our whole family loves it. It's my Mom song to my kids - they are my EVERYTHING. (And the hubby too - he gets more and more amazing everyday, ok, well most days - some days not so much :>) but most days he's my everything too.)
You're a falling star, You're the get away car.
You're the line in the sand when I go too far. You're the swimming pool, on an August day.
And you're the perfect thing to say.
And you play it coy, but it's kinda cute.
Ah, When you smile at me you know exactly what you do. Baby don't pretend, that you don't know it's true. Cause you can see it when I look at you.
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It's you, it's you, You make me sing. You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.
You're a carousel, you're a wishing well, And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You're a mystery, you're from outer space, You're every minute of my everyday.
And I can't believe, uh that I'm your "MOM", And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through, And you know that's what our love can do.
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times It's you, it's you, You make me sing
You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times It's you, it's you, You make m e sing. You're every line, you're every word, you're everything. You're every song, and I sing along. 'Cause you're my everything.
