I am the wife of a professional firefighter, we have been married for 14 years and we have a son who is 12. I love my family life, its crazy, uncertain and filled with fun! My son has the advantage of growing up within walking distance of both his grandparents!!! I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and worked at a Chicago hospital in the open heart unit. I also was on a paramedic department that provided coverage in the city of Chicago, my life at that time was wide open and running at 100mph. I decided to slow down a bit and took a nurse travel assignment, it was while on assignment in NC that I met my husband. My life running at 100mph had perpared me for this life as a firefighters wife. My husband and I both grew up in a Christian home. I came to know Christ as my personal savior at a very young age. It was during my night time prayers with my Mom that I asked Christ to forgive my sins and to be Lord of my life. My husband came to know Christ at an older age. My son came to know Christ as his personal savior when he was 6 years old. Parents never lose a chance to talk with your child in the car. Its a great place to learn what is on your childs mind and heart. Its also the place (right in the middle of rush hour traffic) that my boy accepted Christ as his savior! Its always amazing to me when the Spirit of God moves and what He can use to move a heart to him! These days are spent with my family, doing typical wife duties (laundry and dishes) and I am battling an uncurable disease, lupus. Sometimes I think my nursing education was to prepare me for this disease and knowing what good medical care is all about. It has meant that I am unable to work in my professions, and that I have had to learn to listen to my body. Stress is not a good thing for this monster, it is something that I try to avoid. It has taught me too, that I must trust God to his healing and care, He alone knows what is best for me. Somedays I just have to let go of the things I want to do or take care of and rest. Its not something that I did often before having this disease. I am learning.
