This Was Not the Way I Expected to Start 2015...
This was not the way I expected to start 2015.
All 3 kids sick. Husband who is sick. I'm getting over this myself! And we have been stuck in the house for over a week. With lots and lots of snow outside. Partly because we have been sick...and partly because we only had the Jeep! (The faithful suburban has been out of commission for a bit due to the deer that was hit by it on the way to the Connection Church Christmas service!)
My kids do well playing with each other for a little while.
But then the simplest thing can seem to trigger the start of World War III.
The gross mom jobs that don't seem as gross when you are a mom have been multiplied this week.
Even this morning there was one of those "Oh my word it's getting everywhere" moments...
And I feel drained.
And I just don't want to be touched or talked to for 5 consecutive minutes.
But, that's not where I am at for this moment.
I'm holding a silly little sick one who finds comforts in my arms and in a lambie hooded towel.
I'm keeping the peace between the 4 year old and the 6 year old as they learn to play together on the wii...or share the iPad...
I'm heating up red beans and rice at 10 am because that is what was requested, and appetites have been low around this house. So I am excited that they want to eat!
I'm not at church today...because I do not want to spread these icky germs...so I had to send things with Lee for him to do on top of all of the other things he already has to take care of. And there were just a few things I didn't get to contribute to today.
Yeah, this is not how I expected the fabulous beginning of 2015 to look like.
But, I am still expecting great things. I know that God is working in me and through me...even now...even today...when I may not feel like I am vibrantly living life.
I still believe the best is yet to come!
