His eye is on the sparrow

I made a bad decision today, to be productive and work on a sewing project. I intended to work a little while and then rest again, but one seam led to the next, the neckline, then one armhole, then the other and finally a hem later, I'd been up for four hours. Nothing strenuous, just sewing on a machine and ironing. Well now my neck is stiff, my arm is charlie horsing and my muscles are aching from fatigue. Can anyone tell me if this is normal mono side effects at almost 5 weeks? I feel like it is, but I'd love to have someone confirm it.
The dress turned out really cute and just what I had in mind for Bethany. I'll post pictures tomorrow maybe. It nice to have it finished but really makes me sad knowing I could've taken better care of Jenna tonight if I'd been in bed all day. She wanted me to pick her up and play with her and I just didn't have it in me. It's such a sad feeling.
The kids just came to tell me goodbye, they are going back to my parents. I am so ready for them to go to bed in their own house with us again. I'm so thankful that my mom can take care of them because there is no way I can yet. I hate telling them goodbye every night, it makes me sad.

I just used the word sad 4 times. {sigh}

This little tiny nest I found in a bush in our yard reminds me of this song,

His Eye is on the Sparrow~

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Today I'm thankful that He sees me...
This is my 30 days of Thanks, don't forget to join me, it's never to late to be thankful!

I'll be so happy for you when you're all better and you're tucking your little angels into their own beds! Keeping you all in my prayers.

My mother-in-law had mono and was useless for almost 2 full months. Take it easy, so that you can get fully better.
