What am I doing...

  • Trying to recover from a very busy Fall season with the kids which is slowly winding down.
  • Enjoying the light rain today and the cooler weather which allowed me to turn on our fireplace.
  • Caring for a sick girl and secretly enjoying the time alone with her.
  • Trying to go through kids clothes and purge purge purge while...
  • Listening to a message "Hoping In God" given by a sweet friend.
  • Looking at the title of a book I recently picked up sitting on my table which is also titled "Hope" and realizing this is often how the Lord speaks to me. He puts several things on the same subject right in front of me so that I don't miss it.
  • Praying for several who are ill and hurting and needing to feel His Hope.
  • Understanding more today that caring for a home and family is a gift even when it is overwhelming and everyone is pulling at you all at the same time.
  • Needing to finish this post and take some notes of this message before returning to the clothes piles and before the clock strikes..."it's time to go pick up kids from school."
  • Thankful that He is the Ancient of Days and so thankful for the message this week in the book of Daniel. He knows and always has!

You're right, it's true that having a child home sick can sometimes be special time alone with them.
