So much better!

I woke up this morning feeling like I could eat! What a wonderful feeling. I did have J take the kids to school when he went to work which meant they had to go to morning care for about 20 minutes. I felt bad doing that but I knew I needed to get that extra hour of sleep and it sure did helped. I have to brag on my kids. When Monkey came home from school yesterday he said, "Mommy we prayed for you at school today and I'm going to ask if they can pray for you tonight at church." What a sweet little boy, he truly hurts for the hurting. I also learned from reading my hubby's blog that last night when they were walking out to the van J slipped and fell holding Peanut. Being the good dad he is he maneuvered his body so that she was safe. Though he got hurt pretty bad and is going to his doctor tomorrow, he twisted his knee and landed on his elbow. He never goes to the doctor. As soon as he went down GG yelled for help, he said no one heard her but he did and that speaks volumes to him and me. And all the kids rallied around him to help him up and with Peanut. I love my kids so much and I am so blessed that God placed them in my care. I love seeing them give each other hugs and kisses just because and winking at each other which in our family means I love you. The sweetness that comes from them far outweigh the days they can be annoying a handful.

These are the times when you can see the results of mommying. It's good when you can see the fruit of your labor, right?

You and J must be doing something right! Hope that knee isn't too "messed" up!

Oh hon... Hope you're feeling better. It's nice that you can look on the rosy side of getting sick, but stomach sickness just takes all the energy out of you...
