Hunkering down

We've been hunkering down today, all four of us are still in our pajamas, something that I know has never happened in the history of my family.  We have been attacked by the dreaded stomach bug.  We fell like flies first Jack, then Kylynn, then me, then Kyle.

There is of course so many sliver linings, mainly that only one member of the family has been in the throwing up stage at a time.  That this is not how we usually feel and that we have a comfortable spot to lay down our weary body.

Praise God that he created sleep that helps restore our bodies, that this day only lasts 24 hours, and for PBS!

One side effect of having an entire family of people with the worst kind of sickness is I now have an empty calendar (besides some much needed laundry of course).  Somewhere in here is the gift of family time, and the ability to focus on what's really important, the way I feel right now makes it really easy to focus on what matters most to me.

I pray each of you has some really good family time this week of Christmas, minus the sickness.

The only good thing about stomach bugs is that they move through you quickly. I hope you guys feel better very soon.
