Fulfilled Fridays 2 Link-up

Welcome to Fulfilled Fridays!

A place where we can celebrate and share what makes life great.

My life is a mess right now. I’m scatterbrained and forgetting things right and left. When people ask me things I’m finding I have to really focus on what they are saying. And I absolutely cannot multitask right now.

I can only think about or focus on one thing at a time. I feel lost, slow, and like I’m dropping things right and left.

As I told my husband the other day:

[Tweet “It must be hard to be a man and never be able to multitask.”]

As humorous as that is, it is a reality for me sometimes. It is part of my lot in life. I suffer from auto immune diseases (more about it here). There are days when my brain shuts down and doing simple things require great effort. There are days when just talking wears me out. That has been this week.

I have been so blessed with an amazing and understanding family. When I’m not doing well, my children take care of themselves. They get their own breakfast and lunch, they do their own laundry, they play peacefully and quietly–for the most part, they are 8 and 10.

My husband is the most compassionate man I’ve ever met.

He goes into care mode. He works a lot and comes home exhausted. I don’t expect him to cook and clean. However, he is very forgiving when I don’t either. He doesn’t complain about dinners of plain boiled chicken and white rice. He doesn’t complain about dirty dishes as long as there is a plate and fork to eat with.

I couldn’t have married a better man.

And that is why my life is fulfilled. I have forgiving and understanding people around me so when all things fall apart and I need to spend a day in bed watching movies on the computer, they happily allow me to.

Now it is your turn!

There are very few rules. You don’t have to follow me on social media or subscribe although I’d love it if you do. Links to where you can find me on social media are off to your right.

If you’re feeling extra generous, tell others where to find this link-up. I’ll make it easy for you if you use twitter!

[Tweet “I linked up at Fulfilled Fridays. Come join me! #linkup #bloggers”]

You don’t even have to link back but it’d be awesome if you did!

Simply share a post, recent or in the past about anything good. Perhaps it is a recipe, craft, a moment in time, something you overcame, something to inspire, or just a journal. Anything goes.

If you don’t have a blog, leave a comment and share below.

Let’s celebrate why our lives are fulfilled!!!!


And if you have a few minutes after posting your link, please spread the joy. Take some time and visit some of the other bloggers.

    Ha! You sound like me! I married the most amazing man too, who is so gracious when I am not feeling well (which is pretty much all the time). I keep telling him he married a lemon! Thanks for this today, and thanks for hosting the link up! Blessings! Here from Where 2 or 3 are Gathered. 🙂

      Yay! I love hearing when other ladies also found great husbands. Sometimes the in-sickness from our marriage vows take over. It bites, but the really wonderful men take it in stride and keep on loving. Thanks for coming by Michelle!

    Ooo, me too, me too! What a gift to see God’s hand in our lives in men that are truly helpmeets! Prayers for a clearer and less challenging week!

      Since my girls left yesterday and are gone on a 10 day adventure with their grandparents I’m sure I’ll have a much less challenging week. 😉 It makes me happy to hear from other women who also have fantastic husbands. I’m glad you found one too!

    I cannot imagine dealing with a chronic illness as it has to be so difficult. Truly God has blessed you with children & a husband who love you & come alongside of you to be helpful. Praying today will be healthy one for you! Visiting from Motivation Monday & I think this was my 1st time 🙂

      I won’t lie, it was a struggle at first but once I began to accept my new reality, life improved. I lost a few friends and everything had to change. For once, life had to be about me instead of my husband or my children. Now it is a balance and just the way it is. I can’t picture life any different. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back soon.
