Must ... Tell ... You ... This

I can (ouch) barely type this entry (ouch).

I'm working out again, and this morning's class (ouch) appears to have taken all my psuedo-muscles (ouch) and turned them into (ouch) lead.

Hopefully, I'll be able to (ouch) pick up the baby by this afternoon.

Luckily, I have a post elsewhere (ouch) today. I'm honored to be featured on The Compassion Blog, sharing a very personal story of why child sponsorship means so much to me and my family. Go check it out.

(Does it matter to you that I just typed ouch-t?)

See you back here tomorrow. If I can (ouch) walk up the stairs again by then.

  3. I find it's not nearly as painful as putting on your swimsuit and finding out it doesn't fit any more. Now, I'm off to read the story.

  4. Yeah, what hulagirlatheart said. There's definitely a little "more of me to love" than there was when I got married two years ago.

    But this isn't about me.

    I'm sorry you're hurting. Seriously. ;)

  6. Ouch! If you were here, I'd share my hot herbal pack with you, followed by a homemade mocha frappucino. Of course, the mocha frappucino will not contribute to the point of exercise. Ouch again, it seems.

  7. Working out...yeah, working on that too...maybe tonight...maybe not...

    You know, I've heard bits and pieces of Corey's story over the years, so it was really nice to read it all together. Reading the story puts a name to all those faces that we see for Compassion (and other orgs) so thank you!

  8. That was beautiful, Kelly. So touching and so well written!

    (and I squealed when I saw that we have the same TV armoire as you. I knew we were twins.)

  9. Wow. I'm so glad I read that. If that doesn't get us throwing pebbles, what will?

    And, as for working out, you go! Hope you can still hold the baby. :)

  11. Left you a note at the Compassion blog but I have to double affirm that this remains one of the most powerful stories I've ever heard in my life.

  13. Wow! What an amazing story! We currently sponsor a child through World Vision and feel so priviledged to be able to do so. God bless you and your sweet family.

  18. I'm a subscriber to Compassion's blog and I don't often find entries there that are as moving and encouraging as yours. It's especially exciting to see how, despite a tough beginning, a cast-off boy can grow into a man like yours. Thanks!

  19. Hi Kelly,
    Thanks so much for visiting me at Aroma of Joy. I love your blog and I can so relate to your pain! In fact the last time I went to the gym I couldn't walk for a week so I haven't gone back. Now I am scared to death to go and even more afraid not to, if you know what I mean!LOL. Anyway, I am looking forward to coming back here often! Now I am off to read your post at the Compassion Blog.....

    See ya soon,
    Kelley
