Posting Just to Post

I've been trying to post everyday - or at least every other day. I feel that I should have something up today since my last post was Saturday but I only have one thing to say...so here it goes...

I feel like *!%$(fill in whatever word you want here)!!!!!!!!!!!

My head hurts and feels like a pressure cooker, my throat hurts, my nose is stuffed up. I feel dizzy. I'm so tired I could sleep for days. Worst of all, I know there is no possibility of me even sleeping more than a few hours and that won't be for about oh, 6 hours from now! Ugghhhhh....

I'm going to have to ask my new friend and buddy St. Gianna to pray that I get through this afternoon and evening. I've heard people say before that saints have sought them out but I've never had that experience. In fact, I've never really felt that I've had a connection with any saint beyond just asking them to pray for me and hoping that it will work. But the other night as I was rocking the baby I started thinking about Gianna...which was strange because I don't know much about her and have never studied up on her or anything. But out of no where she popped into my head and I began asking her to pray for me that I would become a selfless mother like her. I had this overwhelming feeling that she was right there with me and ever since that I night I talk to her at least once an evening when I'm trying to get the baby through his crying jag that he goes through between 7-9. Often I talk to her throughout the day as well. It has been a truly amazing experience and gives me chills when I think about it. I'm sure I'll be posting more about this!

The girls are screaming for a video and fighting over which one to watch. I'd better go tend to them! St. Gianna, pray for me!!! Please!!!

Oh, I hope you get better quickly. Being sick with no hope of significant sleep is no good. I'll say a prayer for you. And I'm sure Gianna is praying for you too.

Yours and Gianna's prayers REALLY worked! Campo slept from 11pm to 6am!!! Whoa baby! Of course, that was after about 2 straight hours of being awake and pretty fussy but some of that I spent in bed as dad gave him a bottle of breast milk and tried to get him calm and asleep. So...I got a pretty good amount of sleep and feel much better today! Yeah!

Yeah, I am so glad. It helps to catch a break like that! I relate to your connection with Gianna. I felt very close to her when I was pregnant with Sophia...In fact, I really wanted that to be her name. Anyhow, I have a great book about her if you'd like to borrow it.

I'd love to read a book about Gianna! I'll have to get that from you very soon!!
