This was my best attempt at a smile. My face is still numb and I have a lot of tissue still, especially in my chin.   So my face is pretty funky right now. I don't think the swelling has changed in the last week. The pain is still the same as well. 

My house is a total wreck right now. It's killing me to have it like this.
There are lights on only half of the tree, the box of ornaments is taking up one of our chairs, and there is a pile of stuff sitting in the same place it was sitting in two days ago. Somehow I still have dishes in my sink, and our dumb dog is lying on the floor chewing on one of the 4 collars she has managed to break through this week. I don't know how she does it. I put her out and when I go to let her back in, I find her chain stretched as far as it will go, and her collar sitting at the end of it. You all don't know this. But I hate having a dog in the house.
But this is my life lately. And my heart is happy.
Because even though I may hurt and have a goofy smile, God is watching out for me. I am healthy and recovering.
 There are dishes piling up in the sink, but that means we are not going hungry.
 Our $20 Christmas tree might be lacking in beauty, but at least we have one this Holiday season.
My home might have piles of unfinished projects lying around, but I'm thankful I have a home at all. 
And the fact that I have a stupid pet, just shows my husbands unconditional love. Even if it's for a dog.

So when I'm sitting here without enough energy to clean my annoyingly unorganized home. I just have to smile my goofy smile. Because this is life right now. But I am thankful for it.

  1. Great post! It's good to keep remembering all the blessings in life, especially during the recovery process because it's so slow and depressing! And it seems to go faster if your mind is focussed on something else. :)
    You're looking great! The swelling has really gone down!
