"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

I Have Returned

In my last post, I said my farewells as I moved to a blog that would focus on my chronic pain.  My chronic pain is not entirely under control, but I am basically fully functional now, and besides this is the blog on which I feel at home.  Therefore, I have come back here, hopefully to stay this time.

Things that have happened to me since I blogged here last:

  1. I ended a semester at school (starting the next one in nine days).
  2. I got my chronic pain mostly under control.
  3. I applied early decision to Teach for America.
  4. I started playing in earnest with my dollhouse again, and making things for it out of Sculpey III modelling clay.
  5. MOST IMPORTANT: I have once again gotten very involved with my Judaism.  For Hannukah this year I got a fancy menorah and a gorgeous handwashing towel.  I put the menorah to good use over Hannukah; I intend to start ritually washing my hands every morning again tomorrow, so I can use the towel.  I now also pray three times daily again, and I have resumed my efforts to read through the entire Bible.
Of course, I am still praying--always!--for "my" Reece's Rainbow child, "Jacob."  A pair of siblings, "Trudy" and "Tristan", have also caught my attention, so I am going to blog about them too.  "Trudy" is sixteen years old, and is therefore only available to be adopted with "Tristan."  She is HIV positive, but otherwise fully functional.  "Tristan," her brother, is listed as having mental delays but being otherwise healthy.

Just in case anybody out there wants them, here are pictures of "Jacob", "Trudy", and "Tristan":

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
