Between sickness and not being able to eat much food for fun due to my gestational diabetes diet, time and time again having to miss out of fun things either because of our sickness or the weather, I just felt really down last weekend. Several things happened that just caused me to start walking by sight rather than faith.
A week ago Monday, I woke up with a terrible head cold and it didn't lighten up all week long. I was miserable! Not only was I sick, Anne was cutting two molars, had croup and ended up with a bad ear infection. She was irritable beyond anything she has ever been and I just kept trying to get through another day of sickness hoping that the next morning I would feel better. After 4 days of having a splitting head ache, I went to the doctor and got an antibiotic for a sinus infection. Sunday, Anne started to feel better and yesterday I started feeling like a normal person again!
Joe was home on Friday due to a snow day and today again! It can be a bit frustrating at times when it feel like summer break is that much shorter and farther away, but overall it is a blessing to have him home.
All we have is today!
It is so nice to be feeling better, I am thankful and pray we can stay healthy longer than a couple of weeks! I was going to get the kids outside and take some pictures but it is freezing cold. We ended up staying in and just taking pictures of them doing things they have been doing often during this cold winter.
We finished the entire Little House Series and I barely made it through the last few pages of These Happy Golden Years, I kept having to stop because I was crying and then I'd laugh with the kids, laughing at me. The ending pulled at my mother's heart and my pregnancy hormones! So glad we read the books this winter, they are so good!
