I haven't posted that much since last week-too busy cleaning up all the little flu victims. It struck Addie first , poor thing didn't know what hit her. All those long night feedings spent building up her weight are gone, but thankfully she's quite perky now. She also has 8 teeth and had a growth spurt! One by one we've succumbed, but I'm ever so thankful that I was the last. I remember one flu season that I had it at the same time and it's hard to clean up the others while sick and gagging. I got it last night and that brings me to the reason for this post.
The little ones really seemed to take Daddy's advice this morning when he told them to "take care of Mama". There has been quite a bit of discord lately with those well enough to engage the others and I wasn't looking forward to Scott's departure for work. God's full of suprises though. They banded together to wash dishes, feed animals, amuse Addie and even put in some laundry. Elyssia finished all the schoolwork that she didn't need help with and Garrison even took the time to do some:). This has been a huge blessing and the quiet rest time this morning has helped me to feel quite a bit better. I don't know if I'll be up for the big grocery trip this evening, but it's nice to be walking around a bit today. The sun is shining!
A Thankful Monday for this Mama!
p.s. I just heard Kiersten telling Caleb-"You will get sick". "You'll be throwing up tonight". Such an encouraging sister;).
