Sick and on the mend...

Well, as you can see, I have been M.I.A.
We were all sick and some of us still are.

I can't even begin to tell you.
We all got it.
Some kind of virus.
And everyone got different symptoms.
Crazy, I tell you.

And I got bronchitis.
Which, I have never had.
And I couldn't breathe.  I could not walk from one room to another.
And all I could think about was making sure my little babe in my belly was okay.

And then my mama came.
She took me to the doctor.
She took my kids to the doctor.
And she cooked and cleaned and cooked and cleaned.

And then my mother-in-law came.
And she cooked and cleaned and went food shopping for us.
And made eggs and got us drinks.  And more drinks.

I can't not even tell you how thankful I am to have my mom and my mother-in-law so close.
And all I could think was, "gosh, I hope I can do this for my kids too!"

And just when I thought we would be sick forever, I remembered all those times I wonder why someone else does not lean on the Lord.
Then it hit me....  why am I not leaning on the Lord?

And I started to think of all the blessings.
The knowledge that we would eventually get better.
That no one has any long time illnesses.
That I have great kids and another one on the way.

And a husband who puts up with us all.  :)
And we are sick, but will be okay.
And we have each other.
And family that helps us.

And 2 of my friends sent us meals and some other friends offered food.
And a bunch of friends called constantly to offer help and just to check in.

We are blessed.
I am blessed.
And we will get better.

And eventually everyone will be back to school- even the little guy who has missed weeks because we were all too sick to take him to pre-school.

And life will move on.
And according to the groundhog, we will have spring soon.

Hope you have a great weekend!
