Sweetheart Saturday- Learning A Foreign Language

Pulling a post from the archives today because we made an unexpected trip to the hospital. My oldest had a seizure for the first time so I was rattled to say the least. We’ve had a laid back day pampering and watching her since we got home from the hospital. All is well and she is doing good, I’m just not in the frame of mind to come up with anything new. I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Enjoy this Sweetheart Saturday post 🙂

Don’t forget the Kindness Challenge starts Monday!

The Richness of a Simple Life

I’m not one for keeping up appearances. I don’t want to smile just because people are looking, fake being happy, or act like I have a perfect marriage. I don’t. My husband and I have had our share of ups and downs, disagreements, arguments, nights with him sleeping on the couch (for reasons other than his snoring).

  1. Awesome post Niki. My husband and I have been through many ups and downs as well. We’ve learned to accept that there will still be ups and downs with the ups now outnumbering the downs. It’s always a work in progress when two people commit their lives to each other. Thank you for sharing and I hope your daughter is feeling better 💜

    1. I’m so glad that there are more ups than downs, it can’t always be smooth sailing but you don’t want to be treading water all of the time either.

      She’s a bit shaken up but overall she’s doing well, thank you so much for thinking of her 🙂

      1. That’s a great feeling! I think we have weathered our share of downs, looking forward to smooth sailing from here, we can handle the occasional storm 😉 Aw thank you! Happy Mother’s Day to you as well, I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    1. Yeah I’m not going to lie, it was pretty scary. I was pretty level headed as it happened (thank goodness it wasn’t a blood related incident or I would have been useless!) but as the day went on, my adrenaline wore out and the scene replayed in my head it got to me. I’ve had several seizures over the years so now I’m experiencing them from the other end of the spectrum, way more scary this way… She’s sound asleep next to me as I type 🙂 Thanks for thinking of her Jenny! 🙂

      1. Oh no. One of my closest friend’s daughters has seizures, so I know it’s very scary. And the worst of hers happened when she went to college, across the country. Thankfully, she has much fewer. Her doctor said they could be stress related, in her case. I’m glad your daughter is resting peacefully. You must be absolutely exhausted and drained. Hope you sleep well. Take care, Niki!

      2. Yeah that’s what the doctors told me too, that they were stress related which made sense when I looked at the time periods I had them (I’ve only had 4 that weren’t injury related). I started to question that today when my daughter had hers at almost the exact same age I had my first one. We’ll be seeing a specialist so I’ll have a list of questions I’m hoping they’ll be able to answer. Thankfully it’s been almost 10 years since my last seizure so I’m hopeful that she won’t have more or that she’ll “outgrow” them…


      3. Yes, I hope so. I’ve heard many people do outgrow them. I was wondering if they’re hereditary. Glad you’ll be going to the specialist. Hopefully he or she will ease your mind, by getting your questions answered, and figuring out the treatment plan for your daughter. I’ll be thinking of you. Keep me posted (of course, only if you want to share. I totally understand if you don’t).

      4. I never put much thought into them being hereditary because since they were “stress induced” I think I almost felt responsible for them like I was causing them in a subconscious way. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not all all relieved that my daughter had one but I felt a release of guilt thinking I somehow brought them upon myself. I’m not a specialist but I’m assuming they must be hereditary, I almost didn’t want to mention that I’d had seizures before because I wanted them to consider every angle before just telling me they were hereditary but of course that’s a pretty big piece of information that I needed to provide so I gave it freely. I’ll keep you posted, thanks for the support Jenny!


    1. Yeah, she was a bit shaken up afterwards just not knowing what happened and being scared that it would happen again. She’s doing good now. Thank you so much for asking Jessica! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! 🙂

    1. Well thank you! I must say this book did help a lot but there are also stages, we we’ve gone through several rough ones but we are in a good phase right now. There’s been a lot of communication and self-discoveries (mainly on my behalf) which have lead me to see things differently and has helped us a lot. Relationships take more than love to make it work, so it’s working through it and finding the balance 🙂
