Zicam and Cookie Dough...

So I have been down sick for a while and I blame Zicam and Cookie Dough (well not seriously but they could be an easy scapegoat). As I layed in my bed, dead to the world (expect for my kids when they needed lunch, they don't care HOW haggered momma looks), I could hear the news announcements of the recalls for Zicam (my BFF) and Nestle cookie dough (my secret BFF that nobody knows about). What kind of world do we live it that we can't stick zinc soaked homeopathic swabs in our nose and eat raw cookie dough by the spoonful and hope that we stay healthy? It just so happened that I had dabbled with both not to long before...

Well All of that just to tell you all that I have been sick, down right flat on my back sick for the past few weeks. It started when I came back from Buffalo (june 1st), creeped itself up and then totally hit me when I got home from my class at Scrap N Yap (June 14th).

This has been a good time for me to slow down, catch up on some well needed rest and just reflect. It is always great to take time out and relax and I realized that this was totally God's way of telling me to SLOW DOWN! Yes everyone, God put mommy on a time out! I have been on the go for a very long time and it was only a matter of time that my body would catch up and demand me to take a day(s) of rest that I had been depriving it.

I think about the story of Creation in the book of Genesis and how God in his ever loving spirit created each and everything on each specific day and how on the seventh day he rested, even though he was God. It never occured to me until our pastor had mentioned it that if God takes a rest, well than it must be as an example, because there is no reason for God to rest, he's God. So with that being said... I was on a long and much needed rest...and now I am trying to catch up with everything. It is tough starting a new position on getting sick, yet Tattered Angels gave me the grace needed to get well. Amazingly enough I still got my work done, and I can't even remember how I did it all!

So to catch you up on a few new things, here are some cute little Flair buttons I made for Facebook, You can get yours too on Facebook, just send me a message and I will send it to you via Facebook. If you would like to add me as a friend, just let me know where we met or how you came about my blog. You can find my FB at Elizabeth Del Real Hicks. My profile pic is a sassy mothers day pic my husband took of me that doesn't even look like me!

I love these little flair buttons. I especially love the one that says "I approve of Global Glimmerization". I mean, what scrapper doesn't want to be on a quest of Glimmerizing the WORLD one page at a time??? Tee hee... tell me your thoughts on Global Glimmerization... I would love to hear what YOU think!

thanks for stoppiing by!
