What's Up Wednesday

Happy Wednesday friends! I am excited to link up with Mel, Shaeffer, and Shay for the "What's Up Wednesday" Link up! I have so enjoyed reading these ladies posts and am excited to join in!

What We're Eating this Week... 
I totally admit that I am eating a ton of greens right now. I seriously think that I could eat them all day long if my body would handle it. After having so much issues while I fight Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease, I am so incredibly thankful to be able to have expanded my diet to include fresh greens again. Spinach, Dandelion greens, Chard, Kale, Basil, etc... yummy!

What I'm Reminiscing About... 
Finding out I had Cancer two years ago. What started out with the belief that I was simply dealing with Basal Cell quickly changed and I am grateful every single day to be Cancer free still! Praise the Lord!

What I'm Loving... 

What We've Been Up To...
The last few weeks have been... difficult. The medicines that I was on have created tons of issues and side effects so as of Sunday I was taken off of five of my new meds. I am currently "recovering" from this and honestly it has been incredibly difficult physically and emotionally. I will definitely be updating soon, but in the meantime I am grateful for your prayers.

What I'm Dreaming... 
of is a cure for Lyme Disease. May is Lyme Disease awareness month. I am praying for new research, new cures, and new understanding about what this disease is and how it can be cured. (Curious about What Lyme Disease is? You can read a post I read last year by clicking HERE!)

What I'm Working on... 
Orders for the shop and a new devotional that I am writing and can't wait to share more about in the coming weeks!

What I'm Excited About... 
That I am healthier than a year ago.

What I'm Watching/Reading... 
I admit it. I am not a TV person, but someone recently challenged me to watch NCIS: LA and not love it. I started out incredibly skeptical but I have to say that I might be loving the "Densi" relationship. Am I the only one?!?

What I'm Listening to... 
There are several songs that are on repeat all of the time throughout the day. I have talked about the one, Isaiah 40, in this post HERE, and love the music by the Wissmann Family, especially this CD HERE, and cry through Aaron Keyes song "Sovereign Over Us" almost every single day. Each one of these is such a blessing!

What I'm Wearing... 
Sweet friends sent me this dress from one of my favorite shops a couple of weeks ago. There is no way with the financial resources that I have all going to my medical bills and my upcoming treatment trip that I could ever have purchased something like this. (Let's be honest I haven't bought new clothes in years.) So imagine my grateful and tearful gratitude when this beautiful dress arrived on my doorstep. *tears* What a blessing! I might just be wearing this around the house each day. *smiles*

What I'm Doing this Weekend... 
Starting to pack for moving up to NY for the summer! 

What I'm looking Forward to Next Month... 
I am looking forward to the opportunity to spread more awareness about Lyme Disease!

What Else is New... 
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I am so humbly grateful for the kind donations and support for my coming medical trip to California. I am so blown away by everyone's kindness during this very difficult time!

I would love to know your answers to these questions friends! Share your thoughts below in the comments!! *smiles* Happy Wednesday!

  3. Hi Rebecca! I just found your blog today through the link up. First off, I hope you continue to stay strong as you fight Lyme. My cousin is also fighting and wants others to know about the dangers. I am sending her to your blog. Secondly, I just saw your craft room and etsy shop. Wow. You have got some major talent. Your craft room looks amazing and I am jealous. Your craft room is basically what my craft room wants to be when it grows up.
