This week. we are
The good thing about life is we all know it's GOOD and BAD! If someone says all the time, Life is Great. They are delusional or just lying. It's ok as it is their choice.
This week, we are sick. We've been fighting it for a week. We are sinus-challenged by genetics. HA I remember all the "hay fever" comments growing up. "It's worse in the morning!" House full of snorers, etc. For me, my septum looks like a winding river. No I will not have surgery. None of it was formed right, but with my luck, they'd poke my eyes out. LOL I actually spent last weekend with fever and in bed... mostly!
However, I'm blaming Marque for this plague. HA! Seriously - for the first time in FOUR years, our doctor's office did not fit us in. For the first time in nine years Marque came home from work and stayed home yesterday and today. So, he went to the Minute Clinic yesterday. The very nice Nurse Practitioner said his sinuses were swollen, soft palette too, throat was raw... which is why she did not do a strep test AND sent him home with Flonase and a solution that would numb his throat. Sigh. We have been using Essential Oils, honey lemon, gargling with salt water.... but people, we may just need Antibiotics. WAAH!
This week, my cousin's husband finally succumbed to the cancer that has been ravaging him. It is devastating for all of us. My husband was planning to go to TN to represent us, but can't because he's sick.
I will say this, we are so blessed to have our Catholic Faith. God is so good and faithful to us. He is with us always. Whether we are sick or struggling. We can not be sad and miserable. How can we, if we read about the Saints and what they suffered. Must be positive... and march on!
“The Lord, your God is in your midst, a warrior who gives you the victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing, as on a day of festival” (3:17).I come from a time where we were taught to count our blessings. This is why I am writing this post. But you did not come here for all that blah blah... Anyway, I am linking up with the ladies at Catholicmom.com for Small Success Thursday.
Small Successes for this week...
- Getting dressed daily (ok, except for today, so far, I am still in my nightgown).
- My house is relatively clean.
- My child is old enough to dress himself and cook basics (thank you God).
- We got a lot of school done (except for today).
- Essential Oils do seem to be helping.
- Plenty of Freezer Food -
- I had turkey soup in the freezer and my new toaster rocks out some cheesy toast. LOL
- We have honey wheat bread in the freezer.
- We have breakfast food in the freezer.
- My husband actually stayed in bed and did not work yesterday (can't seem to say that for today).
I plan on coloring images and putting together a few cards today. I will let ya know.
I hope your weekend is great.
