As y'all know, we've been sick over here. Or, at least the boys have been. I took them to the doctor on Monday and he confirmed that we have a mystery virus on our hands that could be this or could be that, but either way we just keep on keeping on.
Since the visit, we have kept on. The boys have been troopers. There has been a ton of grace - a ton - and lots and lots and lots of coffee.
My new year's resolution was to make monthly confession and I tell you what, if the goods have been this good I cannot even imagine a whole year's worth?!! There's just more peace and flow to even my harder days. My husband made this resolution along with me and he agrees that there is something good happening here.
But, now that I said there has been more peace and flow etc etc etc I have to admit that Linus has not napped since Monday and it's about to make me some kind o' crazy. My husband sees my crazy eyes peeping and he's been good to counter, but gee-whiz! It's like the little man senses I could use a little quiet and space and decides he just wants more of me. Even as I type that I see how silly it is to struggle with this. Of course my son, the sweet soul God shared with me, would want his mama in the craziness of mystery virus, but even so it's gotten tougher as the week has progressed to keep the peace and be the mama the little man wants.
Which leads me to today. Today Linus struggled in the morning. He hasn't had fever since Monday afternoon/evening, but he had a hard time this morning. It may be his throat bothering him, but that aside, he definitely has his appetite back!
and his are you done yet? face.
The brothers also got back to their togetherness even though the majority of the day Linus was up to his usual trouble-making, brother-pestering antics. The times Linus wasn't crazy fussy were golden and allowed for this sweetness to ensue.
Really praying the boys can at least get up to 80% for the weekend. We have family coming in town for Linus's birthday and I really want everyone to be able to fully enjoy each other. There are good times to celebrate! Lord, have mercy. <3 i="">3>
How has your week been? I feel like so many families are getting hit all over again with viruses! Praying that it's not any of your families! But if it is, prayers for y'all!
