Here’s my week


We have been sick.  All week.  RSV has spared no one in this family.  We wore pjs or comfy clothes every single day.  We watched Frozen at least 6 times in the past 7 days and have watched more Dragon Tales than I care to admit.  We have went through 4 boxes of kleenex.  We ran out of ibuprofen and tylenol and cough medicine and cold medicine and Vicks vaporless inserts and congaplex.

It has been a week.  I can’t say it was a bad week but it was a sick week.  And poor little Garrison had his birthday interrupted with coughing and sneezing and fevers and a doctor’s appointment for one sick little girl.  But he took it like a champ and ate the cupcake I picked up for him at the store like it was gold (well, if one ate gold that is).

I am thankful for Fridays, The Lost Cuban, Hy-Vee bakery, $.99 cupcakes, birthdays whether they get the glam that they deserve, movies, and for the little boy who has brought our family a joy that only children can bring.  We celebrate the life God has given us whether healthy or hacking because ALL children are a blessing.

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Psalm 127:3

“When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.”  John 16:21
