Yesterday, I spent the whole day with a fever of 104, headache, chills, and miserable. The kids have been up coughing and feverish, Dan has been sick and the 'to do list' was getting longer and longer. So, as I was saying in the wee hours of the night, as I sat nursing Sam who had been up coughing and cuddling Willy who had just gone back to sleep, I was feeling quite overwhelmed. The tears streamed down my face and I just said a little prayer that the illness that has taken over our house would go away and that I could sleep -- FOR JUST A FEW HOURS!!!!
Today, as I am feeling a little better, the sun is shining and a few things on the to do list has been done, I said to Dan ... "This is not what I planned." As Willy will probably be our last baby, I had hoped for the perfect birth and then Dan was going to be home, family would visit and all would be well ... unfortunately here we are, Willy is three weeks old and we have all been sick since his birth. BUT then I got to thinking that it could be worse ... we have a wonderful family, we are on the mend and life will go on ... so I should just stop complaining! Or at least be thankful for all the precious people around me and things that I have.
So on this day I am just going to say that I am very thankful for the many people in my life that make it so wonderful! Thank you all for your kindness.
