Sick and Sad

It's my own personal nightmare - we have the stomach flu in our house!  So far it is only Cal Henry, but I fear it is just a matter of time before it spreads.  Ugh...  I really, really dislike throwing up!  He is being a total trouper, and so far I'm even being brave.  This is one of the worst parts of motherhood for me (and one of the best parts for stockholders in Lysol!).

Other than the puke, we are...OK.  We are sad.  This is not the Christmas we planned on having, but we are finding moments of joy even though we all feel the void.  I went to a women's gathering for our church last night and I was totally overwhelmed by all the sorrow people bear.  Everyone has hurts and grief and pain, and each of us have moments when it becomes a heavier burden than we can carry alone.  I am thankful for all the folks who love us and are praying for us.  We are praying for other families who are hurting right now too.

Oh! We just got over the stomach bug in our house-I was the only one spared...so far. This is a tough time of the year for so many people amidst all this supposed joy. Wishing you some peace (and health!!)
