You may or may not want to join us on last night’s adventures. I was deep into my first sleep when I was awakened by a vomiting sound down the hallway. It was Jesse, who was feeling sick. After soothing him, I flopped back into our cozy warm bed, itching for a good night before dawn. Moments later, there was another, “Mama!” followed by another call then another. This time I immediately knew that it was something out of the ordinary and that there was a stomach bug going around and an urgent need for sick supplies.
Rayni and Jesse had the stomach flu the day before, so it wasn’t a complete surprise, yet who is ever actually ready for the stomach flu? I can’t say that I am. Yet it’s like I reminded Austin this morning, of the verse, “Tribulation worketh patience.” We do gain patience through our rough times.
The children and I just finished looking through a seed catalog, trying to get our seed order together for our garden this summer. and distract little minds from their sickness, all in one. When Julia and Austin told me how much they would like to order some flowers, I explained to them how my aunt once told me that my flowers run around. You should have seen Austin’s big eyes as he tried to wrap his mind around that one. “You are one of those flowers. Our children are the flowers,” I explained. I further told him how pre annual flowers are just more practical for our stage in life with little darlings, so we’ll keep taking care of the ones we already have.Now for a super simple recipe for more of you m
