About Me

Jeanie OnlyI’m married to a hardworking man for almost 20 years and I have an awesome teenage son.  I was raised in a Christian home with loving parents and 2 older brothers.  I lost my father in 2006 and my oldest brother in 2013.

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).   When you hear arthritis you think about being older, however, RA is totally different. It affects your body in so many different ways.  I have recently been diagnosed with Lupus as well.

I was a very active mom, wife, daughter and friend.  I was involved at my son’s school,  church, and had a full-time job.  I have a type A personality so having to slow down was not in my vocabulary.  After about a year, I had to lower my hours at work to 32 and I removed myself from all of my extra activities.  The medicine was not helping, and if it did help, the medicine was affecting my liver.  Things were not going as well as I wanted.

At the age of 39 (the summer of 2013 & about to turn 40), my physician decided it was time I stop working.  It was very emotional because I have worked my whole life and the financial burden it would add.

I’m still out of work, but the Lord has provided over and over for our family and for me!!

I’m trying to reinvent myself and teach myself I do not have to be in everything!  I need to enjoy the life God has blessed me with.

I decided to start a blog to help me connect with others and possibly be some motivation for them.  My only motivation is The Lord above.  I try to stay in His Word daily, study the Bible and PRAY!

I pray you will receive a Blessing from reading my blog.
