both of my kids have been sick this week. when my son gets sick, he comes up with wild symptoms and holds onto them for a while. it's sad to see him this way. honestly, though, i've had to remind myself several times this week that i am supposed to be sympathizing with my ailing kids instead of feeling sorry for my husband and me. there were a number of times this week that i wanted to fling my sick children as far away from my body as possible and run away fast - run until my lungs or my legs gave out. so far i am still here. and so are they.
today i am grateful for the health that is with us most of our days.
