Soo, Dear Friends, I don’t know if you noticed but both blogs (yes, I now have two) have been turned PURPLE. Why you ask? The answer is SIMPLE. November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and Epilepsy is a HUGE HUGE part of Luv’N Lambert Life.
Most of you know that both of my daughters and I suffer from this wonderful disorder. Now I call it wonderful but anyone living with Epilepsy knows it is anything but wonderful. That said, I always remember to praise God through every storm, or at least try to, so I tend to look at Epilepsy as a blessing in disguise. We, as a family, could have been given much worse so I am thankful that God chose to give us something easy enough, for us, to deal with.
This month I am hoping to have a surprise series for Epilepsy, if I manage to finish and have it set up in time. I will soon post all the info here on the blog and anyone who’d like to join me can feel free to. For now though, I have a few other priorities that are taking place.
My very best guy friend is getting married tomorrow and I’m his lucky Best Woman. I couldn’t be prouder to stand beside my friend and his soon-to-be wife, sweet as they are. I wish them the absolute BEST in life! They seriously deserve it!
My little Laycie Bug is now on week two of her dreaded medicine change. She’s going through the whining phase now, trying to keep from napping though this new medicine (Depakote) is making her so very tired every day around 2pm. She’s a trooper though and thankfully (PRAISING GOD HERE) she has had no signs of seizure, no breakthroughs, AND best of all her attitude and her appetite do seem to be getting a little bit better by the day. The real proof that Depakote works for her will come next week after she comes off her Carbitrol on Sunday. PUHLEEZE PRAY that she continues to do well and that this silly ole disorder doesn’t rare it’s stubborn head and make my sweet baby suffer. Thanks yall!
Sunday is the day for choosing a winner for my very first giveaway on Luv’N Lambert Life. Brittany Hargest’s Love All the Way is up for grabs from anyone who’d like to join in. There is still time – the giveaway ends at 12am Sunday and the winner will be announced later that day. I wish all of you the best of luck! But if you don’t win, don’t worry more giveaways will be announced soon – very soon one AMAZING Christmas movie giveaway will be announced so stay tuned!
Well that’s our update for now. I will be creating more new posts both with the giveaway and the announcement of my special plans for Epilepsy Awareness Month, very soon. For now though I’ve got to get some sleep. I’ve got a rehearsal tonight and the best friend’s wedding tomorrow. Going to be a busy weekend for me. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend yourselves!

I realize that I have fallen behind on posting what I’m thankful for this week. I’ve truly had a lot going on at home and barely any time to write. So to make up for it I’m doing on massive post for days 12-17. What am I thankful for? My friends, who are very much family to me.
I’m thankful for my bestie, Tamara, who is ALWAYS there when I truly need her. She goes far and beyond the call of friendship, especially when I need her most. She gave me a roof over my head when I had no where else to go. She fed me when she didn’t have to and I had no money. She is so much more than a best friend. She’s my sister from another Momma. My twin I call her. I’m more thankful for her being a part of my life than she will ever know.
I’m thankful for my Kimmie. She, too, is always around when I need her. Just today she was there helping me to straighten out a mess. She helps me and everyone she loves, in everyway she can. She’s always there with great advice, even when she’s super busy or can’t be there in person. I’m thankful she is in my life.
I’m thankful for Cory, my best best guy friend. He’s my shoulder to cry on. He gives the best hug when all the world is wrong. He’s also a awesome Cleaning Fairy and a big help to reach the top of my shed. I’m thankful for him always being there for me.
I’m thankful for Mama J aka Jeannie. She pushes me to do better. She’s an awesome role model having been through so much in her life and still come out standing strong. She’s a lot of fun to hang out with, a great dancing partner and is not afraid to stand up for those she loves. I’m always thankful for her love and guidance in my life.
I’m thankful for Shaun, who has been my best friend for almost 20 years. Though we haven’t always gotten along the best, she will always be my sister and has made huge impact on my life. The things we’ve been through together will forever keep us bonded and I’m thankful for our friendship, for all the tears we’ve shared, and all the laughs too. I am thankful she’s always been there and always will be.
I’m thankful for Cecia, who has been a bestie of mine since middle school. I’m thankful for all her craziness. I’m thankful for our fun times and her being there through some pretty tough years. I know we don’t get to hang out anymore but I’m thankful that we are still able to call each other friends.
If you weren’t listed above, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t important to my life. I’m thankful for each friendship I have. God has brought some pretty awesome people into my life. Most are more than friends and instead brothers and sisters. Their existance in my life is encouraging and truly a blessing. I’m a lucky girl for certain. Thank you all for blessing my life. <3
Today’s Truth: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Several years ago, I met a great person through my husband. This guy was hard working, and strong in his faith. A true blessing to my life and my best friend.
A lot of people didn’t understand our relationship and thought there was more to it than “just friends”. They felt it was best that we cut our ties and no longer talk with each other.
Eventually, he chose to follow this advice and well I haven’t talked with him since. I understand why he chose to do this, as he was a lot younger and the opinion of his family was extremely important to him.
There is not a day in my life that I don’t miss his friendship, his strong christian guidance, his encouraging words and hugs and his dependability. I am thankful for the season he was a part of my life because it forever changed my faith in God above. I know he is happy in his life and for that I’m thankful and I am also thankful for the brief period I was able to call him my friend.
