This might be the last Meal Plan Monday for a while because we have some friends going to bring us some meals over the next few weeks to love on us. We found out last week that my husband has cancer. He has surgery later this week and then will receive scans to decide if they will follow up with radiation or chemo. My husband is very rarely sick, so this was quite a surprise to us. The kids are all taking it in stride and we will be leaning on our friends during this time to help keep everything rolling around here. It’s likely my husband will be out of work for a bit on medical leave while he heals from surgery and goes through the plan that his oncologist will set up.
With that being said, his cancer is very treatable and his prognosis is good. We thank God for the good news despite the bad news. I’m not sure how often I will be blogging through the holidays. To be honest, I almost feel that Mommy Octopus is coming to an end. I have less time to work on it and the kids are getting bigger. We still love traveling and checking things out for you guys! Who knows what this next year will bring.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas!
Monday: Cajun Cream Chicken, greens
Tuesday: Beef enchiladas
Thursday: Food from friends
Friday: Food from friends
Sunday: Soup and Grilled cheese
I just bought one of these for myself and one for my 15 year old. Jane.com currently has these wonderful Gratitude Journals for only $8.99! You have several lines to write on for each day. Takes just a couple moments each day to write down what you are thankful for. I’m told that especially on days when you’re not feeling thankful, it’s important to write down something – anything. When you’re feeling down, it’s great to go back through and read all the things for which you are thankful.
