acacia's page

As you can see to the left of this, I have two page links.

The first page is Home - where you are now. The second page is all about Acacia.

I will be updating it as often as needed... with things that make me laugh, warm my heart, and I may even post some pictures. Ya know, all those loving-mother sort of things. 

If I have the time, I may even go back and write things in from the first year and a half.

It will be an ongoing page... meaning that I'll write in it as long as Blogger allows me the ability. 

My hope is that it will bless you, as the things written assuredly bless me, and that it will bring a smile to your face, for she never ceases to make my cheeks crease. Sorry... I didn't mean to make that sound so poetic. 

So... if you're having a bad day or a wonderful day, I share my joy with you through Acacia.

Having mono is quite a kick in the butt.

Though I am free of the most painful symptoms - constant headache, swollen tonsils, etc - I am plagued with tiredness.

And I just can't seem to shake it.

It is an odd virus because I don't feel sick yet it hast me dragged down. There is nothing superficially wrong with me... apart from feeling sleep deprived nearly 24/7. It makes me think I'm lazy. Lathargic. Lifeless.

And I hate it.

I'm hoping and praying to overcome this soon. 

And... *wringing hands guiltily* ... praying that Jason and Sheree' get over the tiredness as well. To add to the list, I'm also praying that Andrew and Janae' are spared from mono entierly. 

So. If you think of us, we'd greatly appreciate it if you sent up a simple little prayer too. 

I think the worst part of it all is being a mother with mono. I don't have the time or energy for both. But.. I will give thanks... because the Lord spared me from the body rash, fever, an overly enlarged spleen and inflamed liver. 

If you are between the ages of 10 and 26, I advise you to stop sharing drinks with everyone. Because mono is contagious for up to 18 months.
