"Two Years Ago" May 19, 2019

Two roads diverged in wood - and I - I took the one less traveled by - and that has made all the difference... Robert Frost


Please view my latest writing on the "Menu"/"More" page. 


Most every Sunday, there will be a new article posted...these last few months illness (my own) has interferred with my writing.


Natalie can be contacted with questions or comments at: onechicksjourney@gmail.com 



The Following 'Note' was from 2/14/19 -  Since that time I had taken ill, required surgery, and have been in recovery...I now know without a doubt that you MUST take care of yourself first...thank goodness I didnt wait 'too long' to visit the doctor (that I kept putting off).  Take care of you and then you will be able to take care of your loved ones...

A Note From Natalie:

I haven’t written or posted an article little over two months.  We, my family and I, have experienced some trying times these last eight weeks.  

I will be completely honest and say that I have not handled the last couple of weeks with an abundance of grace.  I lost my footing along the way. I could blame it on stress, lack of sleep, the litany of “what-ifs” that have been running through my head….but I won’t.  Those are just excuses and the bottom line is... I have been filled with fear. Fear for all the things that could go wrong...what may happen...what the future could hold.

Navigating through having a child with a chronic illness is difficult - an understatement if there ever was one.

I found myself so consumed with fear that I was very nearly paralyzed by my own thoughts...a nightmarish place to be.  It may be that hell isn’t a place filled with fire and brimstone...but more of a state of being that we choose to exist in...a state created by our own thoughts.

I believe wholeheartedly that thoughts are things and we shape our reality with our words.  This being said - the internal struggle, between my thoughts and feelings, that I have had for these sixty some days - has been epic.  

I have been hibernating...healing...coming to an understanding with myself.  One can only ever live in the moment - if we become consumed with worry of the future - we lose the present moment - and what a waste that is.

I offer my thanks to all that have held us in your prayers.  I feel your prayers, your love for my family and am comforted...I weep with gratitude.

May God Bless All of You.
