This Thanksgiving Day, I am grateful to be alive! The Lord showed me a great kindness this year by providing doctors and medication to restore my mind.
God, in His great mercy, allowed me to regain my sanity. I know I will have this illness for the rest of my life. I know there is no cure. And I do not require of God a miracle. It is enough that I am here and my illness is being well-managed.
I will give thanks to God with an abundantly grateful heart for allowing me to get better.
I remember with great clarity the darkness of that terrible nightmare. The Lord delivered me. He lifted me up out of the sinking sand and placed my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps steady.
There is no doubt in my mind that God gave the gift of His wisdom to doctors, nurses and other hospital staff who helped me at my worst moment. I am utterly grateful.
I have never known what it means to have a stable, balanced brain. Today, I know what stability feels like. I offer my thanks and I rejoice in the goodness of God. + Happy Thanksgiving, friends! +
What are YOU thankful for?

I made some modifications on the pattern I sewed last week and sewed up this sweet little dress for Jorie. Fabric: @hawthornethreads Pattern: @mccallpatterncompany #M6919 #sewing #sewingforgirls #seamstress #sewingdresses #babylocklyric

Today I can truly say I am stable. My psych meds are WORKING magic in my brain. I’ve never felt this NORMAL in all of my adult life. The only downside? I’ve gained a ton of weight. 15 lbs in one month. I’m really struggling with this.
Is my mental health more valuable than maintaining a healthy weight? I don’t know. All I know is that I simply can’t go off Abilify because it SAVED my life.
But I can hardly fit into my clothes! And I’m exercising every single day! I need God’s help. Can God help me with my weight?
Can prayer and leaning on God help me say no to my belly? The thing is, the Abilify makes me feel SO HUNGRY all the time. Like starving-level hungry. I don’t know how to handle it.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? What did you do?
Or should I just make my peace at being a size 12/14? Help!

Sewed up this pretty dress for Joss. With a shirt underneath and a sweater, she can still wear this summery dress through the Fall. @mccallpatterncompany #mccallpatterncompany #sewing #babylock #babylocklyric #sewingdresses #sewingforkids #seamstress #sewingforgirls

Christmas decorating in full swing. In my house, Halloween is the gatekeeper of Christmas. Right @ginagreenberg ? 😊 So, here’s my Christmas mantle. That wreath?? $20 at @marshalls ! YAY CHRISTMAS.

Smiling is good for your mental health. It’s science, people! Try it. :)
