it has felt very much like the world has stood still the last two weeks.
at least our little world has.
after the girl's bout with the flu
I thought life was resuming as normal, but alas
on Monday my son came home with a fever.
And then by the next afternoon my body finally really caved.
And let me tell you, this thing has been a doozy.
I just like using that word. It sounds mighty old fashioned.
Like something my grandmother would use.
We're still in recovery mode.
You know it's bad when twice in the last week
I have crawled out of my own bed to discover
a silent home, because my children were all voluntarily napping.
Well, praise God for that.
I guess we needed rest.
In the midst of this yuck, my dear sweet youngest child turned six.
And mommy managed to do nothing really very special at all.
But I've promised, soon, very soon we will have a day all about her.
What I did manage, was a food color laced cake boss cake.. the farthest
thing from the healthy versions I usually try to make. But Ralphs was about
all we could manage in the midst of this flu.
She and her sister found ways of entertaining themselves, like making this
dollhouse out of her gift box and wrapping.
The girls are decorating for valentines day.
Happy insta friday everyone.
I covet your prayers for health and healing in this house.
Because we have had enough of the sickies!
