I haven't joined in with the Things Im loving' lately. Or My Creative spaces.
I haven't even blogged much lately, or much this year.
I have lost followers...but I always said I didn't care. It probably isn't anything I've said...because I haven't said much...

I am searching, for where I fit in at the moment.
I am supporting my daughter through a tough time.
I am struggling with my health, really struggling. This journey has been so long and hard. It feels like it never ends. I just want to feel normal. For once.

every day.
But I am thankful.
For a new doctor with the knowledge and expertise I so desperately need.

I am thankful.
For a Paleo Diet that fits me perfectly.

I am thankful.
For the friends who never forget me when I feel invisible.

I am thankful.
For having hands that have the ability to create.

I am thankful.
For this is my journey.

I am thankful.

Try not to let the blogging thing get you down, Leonie. Just look at it as one less thing to worry about right now. Besides - you might not have blogged much this year but you are such a faithful blogging FRIEND! I always see you leaving lovely, encouraging comments for others.

I will keep you and your daughter in my prayers during this tough time.

I am getting excited for you that your trip isn't too far away :o)

Lots of love xo

Beautiful post, Leonie. Being thankful through the tough times can be hard, but also the most useful thing to do. I appreciate you. Cx

You haven't lost me! :) I know it can be hard when you're not able to post, it's been a bit like that for me this year too. I hope you can find a few quiet moments to do some Christmas crafting, whether you blog about it or not.. And I hope that your daughter is Ok whatever it is that she is going through. She is blessed to have a mum like you that makes her a priority.

I wish you health and happiness, especially in the lead-up to Christmas :).

Hun I'm sending you hugs. xxx
That invisible comment made me sad for you. You are NEVER invisible to God, your maker. People will come and go in your life, they will let you down, some purposefully, most just because they don't see your needs, but God... He will always be there for you, will never leave nor forsake you. He longs to show you his LOVE, his will for your life. To give you peace and contentment. He want to be your source of comfort, your shelter from the storm. To show give you GOD ideas for dealing with the bully, and your sickness. He has all the answers to your life. He really does. Love to you my friend. xxx

Hi Leonie,
Sorry to hear you've been going through a rough time. I understand about the blogging thing, it's hard to keep up with it at the best of times. I hope things settle down for you soon.
