Does your body ever just shut down? Mine does this to me sometimes. It's like it says, "well if she isn't going to rest. I'm just going to make her."
...So after an insanely busy week/month... Tuesday a.m. I went to boot camp (yes, I'm doing a boot camp 2 mornings a week. It rocks! Seriously. I highly recommend!) , came home did my thing and loaded the kids in the car: one boy to swimming, two girls and one dog off to Abbottsford to their last dance. (the girls NOT the dog. I'm sure she'd love to dance but I'm not sure the teacher would be so impressed). I was starting to feel tired and kind of draggy but...whatev, it's been a long month. We got there early to pick up gifties for dance instructors and then ... to dance. Suddenly I am sick but I still have 2 hours of dance and one trip to the park (remember the dog?) to wait through. Argh! It's okay. I did it.
Now the 30 min drive home and oh, there's my hubby and his dad and my boys all hungry hungry hungry. Drag my poor (now feverish) butt around for a bit more and YAY. BED!
The next day played out much the same except less driving for me and more bed. Finally at around 4:30 I lifted my overly warm head off the pillow and asked my hovering youngest child if she wanted to pray for mommy? Well, she delights in praying for people and pray she did! I believe God has a special place in His heart for the prayers of tiny girls because I almost immediately started to feel better.
I was able to get up, make dinner and spend the evening with my family. Thank you Lord!
And then I was off again.
Kev went to Edmonton for 2 days and I had to get up and take the kids to the waterslides Thursday am. I was well enough to do all of this! If I had to be sick, it was perfect timing that it happen the two days that it did.
I do feel like I need to say, "God answers prayers. Even in the little things. Quite amazing really!"
******And He answered our prayers in another area. We will be leaving for our annual trip to the lake with our bffs on Friday. AND Kristen will be joining us. Praise GOD her placenta moved!!!! She's got the thumbs up on her trip and we get to hang out with our favorite people for a week. ******
