Counting my Blessings one by one and praising Him for all He has done
Well, my biggest thankful this week is this...we have had a horribly violent stomach virus going through our home. It has to be the worse and most brutal virus I have ever seen(and I have seen tons!)It completly wiped out Dave, Chelsea, my MIL and Ryan. I have been waiting my turn and praying that it did not hit me as hard as it did the others, because Moms can't get sick! It took them all at least 4 days to be able to stand on their feet after they had the virus and they all lost 7 to 10 pounds. How could I possibly be out of commission like that? Who would do everything and who would take care of the little ones? Dave has no sick time left.
So, like clockwork, I did get the virus Tues. night, but it did not hit me nearly as hard as the others. I was able to stay in bed all day and have the little ones play next to me. Although I do not have much of an appetite, I am already well enough to be up and about doing my Mom thing. Thank you God for answered prayer and always knowing what we can and can't handle!! Now praying the little ones can miraculously escape this, because it is much too violent of a virus for their little bodies!
I am so thankful to be a Mom. What would I do without my kids?
I am thankful for my garage! Remember in ALL things bring Him praise? The first 12 years we were married, we lived in a home with no garage. Believe me when I say be thankful if you have a garage and you live in an area with bad weather. Everytime we get hit with snow/ice...I am reminded how blessed I am to have a garage now!
