my words are few

i have not written in so long.

there is not much to say. i do not want to just simply write as an act. it has to mean something.

today will be short. just like me.

my heart has been heavy, and i have been anxious. school is proving to be difficult and i feel like i'm either at school, doing homework or sleeping. i've been having lots of headaches, because i'm stressed and not on meds. thats not cool. but i'll be alright.

a few updates...which break my heart.

just a week and a half ago, my friend Allie went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus! i have mentioned her many times on the blog. she courageously battle leukemia for the past year and a half. please pray for her family. her amazingly strong husband and three young daughters. most days i still find that my tears fall. i tell my parents that i still feel shocked, because i was praying so strongly for a miracle. but i am reminded by one of my favorite quotes that "maybe the miracle was even getting to know her." i find peace in that, and i have hope and faith that i will see her again in Heaven. what a wonderful gift to look forward to. i wrote in my journal just days after her passing that if i could have faith like allie & strength like adam her husband, then i will be more than set. i have never seen anything like it.

secondly, a friend of the family passed away just yesterday. he graduated with my sister. my heart aches for his family, but again, we will see him again. his name was Josh.

thirdly, and not so heart wrenching. this week is my "things are a little bit odd" week which comes around every 6 months. and this time its accompanied by about a billion and seven bruises. okay i exaggerated. maybe just a billion. haha! but anyways i got labs done on monday, things looked normal. i went to the doc today and she ordered lots more, and set me up with hemotology. now dont panic. its just a word. but please be praying for these results, and that we can get to the bottom of this. and not to be too graphic, but i also have a lot of unexplained mouth sores, and they are pretty painful. and hopefully some of this bloodwork will figure that out too.

wow. i said my words would be few. i guess thats impossible when i share the same genetics with Roger Taylor hahah...sorry dad. another thing you taught me was HONESTY!

i love you all.

Blessed by a Heavenly Daddy,

Shelby Elyse
