Germs, Germs Go Away...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Gals,
Well, goodness, it's been too long. Trust me I would have much rather been blogging each day than dealing with what our house got hit with for 2 weeks. We have had sickness floating through our home. Our firstborn got to feeling yucky and so here we come doctor. My kitchen became my medicine cabinet and medical journal of logging times and doses. Then I got a bacteria infection in my throat (like strep but yet strep was negative). So to the doctor I went and more meds and medicine journals of times and doses. It was crazy!

I was once again reminded of 2 very important things...One: I am the luckiest gal in the world to be married to an incredible man, husband and dad! He was like super dad, emotional stabilizer and doctor. We had to keep firstborn from secondborn so hubby would take one kiddo and I'd have one and then we would switch half way through the day. It was just nuts...hysterical now but at the time pretty crazy! I digress...

Two: GOD IS SO IN CONTROL! I felt so helpless for my kids! To keep one from hurting and the other from catching the germs! I literally at 7:00 pm every night was in tears as I just felt so helpless! I am no theological debater of the Word. I don't know all of the Gospels. I don't have all the answers. BUT I do know I could not be a wife and mom without HOPE. Even more than that I can't imagine being anything without HOPE. I had to lay down all my fears and anxiousness every moment of every day of these crazy 2 weeks to the Lord and just pray sweet secondborn wouldn't catch those germs that could really harm her. I had to pray for understanding as I had to give meds to firstborn that I prayed have no crazy side effects. Some might say I'm a crazy mom, so worried...but I would say THAT'S BEING A MOM. Period! We worry, we want to take any hurt from our child if we could...but I know I can't and I know the Lord used this crazy sick time in our household to remind me HE IS GOD. HE IS IN CONTROL.

So I think I'm back...all is healthy. Medicine cabinet is back where it belongs and we are a house of thankfulness for the HUGE blessing of being healthy!

Be Awesome & Love Jesus,
