Keeping it Real

This week's post on TOFW is definitely a 'keeping it real' one.   I always have to write  my posts a week before they are posted, so this was a week ago when I was feeling really sick and was over everything.   You can read it by clicking on the pic below.


  1. Lisa, What can I say. I love your complete honesty. It is hard to read your words & not feel emotional & feel some sort of pain for you. Knowing what we do doesn't take away the pain - it just means we know there must be a reason but don't know why yet. Love & Thinking of you

  2. Such a tender yet honest post - tears came to me as I read too. I've been feeling a little the same as you but yet haven't had the hard trials that you've faced. You are doing a great job even I can't imagine how hard it must be! Take care xx

  3. lots and lots and lots of love to you lisa.
    it still sucks, and i'm sure it always will. wish i could take it away.
    love you heaps xxxxxxx

  4. Oh Lisa.... I am just so sorry... hoping you are feeling better a bit more zesty! xo!

  5. BIG HUG Lisa, thinking of you through your days of struggle. Whilst I'm not on my own because of the death of my spouse, I'm on my own because my ex husband left me and we divorced, I totally relate to your feelings in the post on TOFW. Raising children on your own is not easy, it's a tough job sometimes and of course we all know it wasn't meant to be like that. I cried reading what you had said because I related to your feelings more than I can say. Life becomes so real when you have to deal with things on your own and you feel like it shouldn't be that way, it wasn't meant to be that way. All you get to do is take one day at a time, there's no other way to get through it. My prayers and thoughts are with you ..... It's good to know that you can express your feelings out loud via blogging and not keep them in. Sending you love and peace and good thoughts. Leonie xoxo

  6. I honestly don't know how you're doing it all . Xxx

  7. Hugs to you and the boys.

    I do not blame you for wishing for what you had, I am sure we would all feel the same. And I would feel anger at how unfair it all is. You have dealt with so much in such a short period of time.

    Reach out to others when you feel the need. I imagine they would love to help you physically, as I and so many of your readers wish they had the opportunity to do.

    I can only imagine how hard it all must be for you and wish you never had to do this.

    You are so very strong but it is good to reach out for help. Independent or not, you are only human dear Lisa.


  8. Dear Lisa,

    With tears in my eyes, I read your story ... What life can sometimes be heavy! I read your blog for a while. And I am deeply impressed by your strength. Actually, the power of God through you! Let these feelings, how annoying too, pass. You'll be there always stronger. I pray for you, even though I know you only through the Internet. Big hug from Holland Heleen

  9. Lisa,
    Your last post left me in tears thinking about you and Aaron cuddling your sweet, wonderful Noah. This post breaks for my heart for you. I don't know you in real life, but feel as if I do through the internet and oceans apart. I wish we were "real life friends" because I think you are such an amazing mama and wife. I want to give you the biggest hug. I can't imagine dealing with it all... Thank you for being honest and sharing with all of us. Sending hugs and prayers your way!!

  10. It's just not fair that you're having to go through this pain.

  11. Thinking of you very much yesterday and read some of your posts..Aaron was very near while I was doing that… looking over my shoulder at your blog,I felt…..I'm going to the Temple tomorrow… When I was in the car today,my VT and friend said"Did you decide on the Temple tomorrow?" "I told you ,yes, yesterday"….I felt a bit mean for the gruffish tone of voice I felt I had used….I know I felt Aaron's presence in the car…The Temple has been closed and I am not able to it has been awhile….

  12. Lisa,

    You don't know me, although I've been reading your blog ever since Nie mentioned it on hers. I don't know her either. I read your blogs and feel that your lives are such a testament to what you truly are; women of faith and courage. I read to gain strength for myself in my own life and my own trials that too feel lonely to bear. Our Heavenly Father blesses us in many wonderful ways and his tender mercies bear us up and allow us to continue on. Thank you for all of your lovely words, even the ones you don't feel inspire. Trust me, they do.
