Unimaginably Blessed

A few very awesome things are happening in my life right now that I thought I would just share. First of all... I'm going to be an aunt!!! HOOORAAAY!!! I am so excited that in August my sister and her husband will welcome their baby boy into the world. It's crazy how much I already love someone that isn't even born yet. I promise to fulfill every auntly duty that is ascribed to me. Baby- can't wait to meet you!
Isn't she the cutest prego lady ever??!!
Great news #2 is that I have been offered an internship with my Community Nutrition professor from last quarter. I am going to be working with a program called Early Works that is being done by the Children's Institute that is going to be implementing a parent engagement program at one of the elementary schools in Portland. To me its unfathomable that I get to have such a position and get to work with such great people and gain skills that are directly related to my career. Life is very busy, but it is also great. Trying to soak everything in at once.

I wasn't feeling very well for a good half a year until my medicine started to take affect and I could go back to my normal lifestyle. I am so grateful for the friends (Essi, Sok and Mary) who actively asked me how I was feeling and really encouraged me and showed me some real genuine love- thanks friends! Now that I'm feeling better and have more vigor to have a great year I will try to be more consistent with being present on my blog. So far 2018 has 2 main events, both of which are going to occur in May. First of all, my loyal and trusty friend of 25 years is getting married!!! I couldn't be happier for Kat and her boo Anton! I am so honored to be …

Silent Pain- How to be a friend

Most people with autoimmune disease (or other types of chronic illness) don't have insanely visible symptoms like someone with a broken leg- most of the suffering goes on quietly with little attention from others because its often internal. Having invisible and silent pain can be so hard to go through and many people from the outside don't understand what it's like and can often miss opportunities to be a good friend. Here is a guide on what to do and what not to do since most people get it wrong. These tips come straight from my experience of how my amazing friends treated me, especially those who were having a very similar experience to mine.
1. Pray for your friend. Also, make sure you tell your friend you are praying for them. Dealing with invisible illness can be fatiguing, hopeless and dark. What better way to be a friend than to lift them up in prayer to the Ultimate Healer?
2. Don't say that you know how they feel. Comparing some minor thing or pain you have i…
