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

The cat’s favorite place to sleep. 😊

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. :)
