Joining Everyone...

It seems everyone is sick right now or has been sick recently. We are joining the masses who are undergoing a variety of yucky sick symptoms. My hubby came home early today with flu like symptoms (the ONLY way I get him home early during busy season!). My kids all have some kind of cold type virus, Tucker and Bella with off and on fevers. It's been a long day (aren't they all for any mom?), and I'm currently debating whether I want to attempt going to bed, afraid that as soon as I lay my head on the pillow, someone will wake up screaming and needing me. I have to say that while I have seen moments where God's grace has been evident on my life to serve my family today, there have been plenty of other moments where I have been less than self sacrificing and/or cheerful about the self sacrifice.

We'd all appreciate your prayers. I know some of you may be reading from your sickbed yourselves. Let me know to pray for you...helps me look up and out of my all too oft, self absorbed world. :)

Will be praying? Do you guys need anything? We'll be going to Care Group tonight and will swing by if you need any supplies.

Will be praying. Could use some prayers myself. I got the cold yucky thing going. I thought I was better than last night I was up all night coughing and today I am all congested again and coughing etc...

We've got the same thing going on at work, and found out today that what we have is actually a flu strain that wasn't hit by the flu shot (in fact, it didn't show up on our rapid flu test either, but when they ran the more accurate test...). I'll be praying.

Sickness is so taxing....oh, sorry for the accounting humor. Probably makes you feel worse. I can't help myself sometimes. Will be praying. I have wheels tomorrow if you need something and will be in your area mid-afternoon if you need me to swing by w/ groceries or whatever.

Bri: praying that you all are feeling better. You are being a wonderful mother tending to their needs and if every other blog post continues to say how self-absorbed you are we really might start believing it. (ok, not EVERY post do you put yourself down, but you do a lot) But I know this to be untrue.

Love ya.
