The blessings of being sick !!!

So along with my last post "FEAR" my Little Lillie girl is sick along with her mommy!She has the fever, cough, and you got it .... the poopy to:)Today Anthony woke up from his nap with a fever as well and now we are just waiting to see if Addison and Daddy will be joining us this week as we celebrate being sick with all our meds and tissues lol!!Addison has informed me that " she is so glad she is not sick"I told her " Don't be surprised if you get sick sweet heart" she just smiled and said "okay mommy" I know she doesn't want to get sick and she really feels bad for us she has been drawing pictures for all of us and wanted to have a surprise party to make Anthony feel better:)Anthony is her side kick and its interesting to see one of them down because they are two peas in a pod.


It never fails though that when I get sick like this I always have to thank God for my health and that my sickness is only for a time!I have to think of those people who's sickness is not just for a short time.

My husband started his 4 days off to taking care of his sick family:)Iam so thankful to the Lord he allowed my hubby to be off and not needing to take days off to take care of us.

As you can see in the picture my husband has been hard at cleaning and taking care of his sick family!He has been taking our temps,giving us meds and making sure we have been getting the rest we need to get all better.So I very much appreciate him loving and caring for our family.

We also have been blessed with my mom and sister making us dinner these last 2 nights and it has been very yummy:)Thank you for your thoughtfulness !!!!So I would have to say that there are blessings in being sick:)

Yes my hubby has been doing our laundry as well while I have been sick.Iam so thankful for him!

And this is my hubby crashed out after working hard although he is recharging to finish the huge loads of laundry on the couch lol:) He has been getting the kids dressed, and feed everyday not to mention putting them to bed at night baths and all.In times like these his cleaning obsession does come in handy and doesn't bother me as much when Iam sick compared to when Iam feeling well :)

Awe! That just blessed my heart! How precious is Tony? I love that sweet blessing which only comes in trial and tribulation...I hate that you are sick and now Lillie, but I know God's ways are not our ways either, so I can't argue much with God :(...He loves you guys way more than we do :) Praying God continues to bless you with His mercies this next week! Love you :)
