My husband hit it out of the park with this Valentine’s Day gift for me. Cards, flowers and chocolates are so predictable, but these sweet baking spoons are the best thing he could have given me this year. Baking is my passion and I’m always looking for something special to add to my cooking collection.
Not only are they a great Valentine’s Day gift, but the book I am currently in the process of writing is called “Heart Seasons: A Spiritual Love Story.” That makes these cute treasures the perfect inspiration for me.
On February 24th it will be six months since I was pulled out of a six-month long abyss I found myself in due to an unusual illness. It involved the spontaneous inflammation of my brain and a severe lack of spinal fluid. I was bed ridden and unable to function at any kind of normal level. In fact I don’t even remember most of what happened during that time.
Then on August 24th 2015, I ended up being admitted to the Brain and Spine Institute in Portland, Oregon when my husband found me unconscious. A neurologist, who had not been working on my case previously, was there that day and took a new approach in treating me. Within two days I was on the road to recovery. I am so grateful to even be here to share another holiday with my husband and family, and thank God for bringing this doctor into my life that day.
Life can be full of ups and downs and unexpected events, and I know we’ve all had to face challenges and difficulties. But I believe that everything I’ve been through up until this moment is getting me prepared for what God is going to do in the future and I can’t wait to see where all this leads.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28, NLT
