We’re Being Carried

This has been a rough week.

Many of you have left me lovely, wonderful comments here and via email.

Thank you.

This week we found out Cort’s grandpa is not doing so well.

A good friend of mine pointed out that my anxiety seems to sky-rocket when I am faced with sickness and mortality.  With the overload of work and the possibility of losing someone else that I love very much, I lost control.  I feel deep.

But then I read your comments.

And I remembered Cort’s dad’s favorite poem.

And I realized that right now?  My family and I are being carried.


In other news, the discounts from this post expire this coming week.  So get in on them while you can!

Also, I am having an online scentsy party with Joanna of Raising Madison. Every purchase gets entered to win a FREE plug-in warmer!  That is a $15 value for FREE!  Hurry, the party is open through Tuesday, so get in on some fun holiday scents!

Lastly, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s will be Top Ten Things on Your Child’s Christmas List.  These can be things YOU want for you baby/toddler/child/teenager or things they have actually TOLD you they want.  Make your list, link up, and get ideas from everyone else!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Know that I am praying for all of you. Sickness affecting someone you love is painful and stressful. Know it’s ok to cry and to lean on others to help you make it through. I am so blessed to have you as a virtual friend and it hurts me to know that you feel this way. I wish I could make you feel better. Love you 😉

    • thanks, my love. I am so glad I have you as a friend too. Usually we do a very good job of smile, gritting our teeth, and just getting through it. I had a tough time doing that this past week. Love you back!

  2. Sorry it’s been a rough week and sorry to hear about Cort’s Grandpa. Hugs to you all!
