Spring Flowers Give a Little Color!
It's been a mellow day. I'm waiting for Jackie to bring me my Joshua. I've missed my oldest boy this week.
Jessica is doing better. Marcus went to the doctor yesterday and is on antibiotics for Bronchitis. Andrew seems like he is getting better. Jacob is the one who is having such a hard time. He has the barky, seal cough and keeps rubbing his eyes and crying. I don't know if they itch or what? They aren't red. He has a fever on and off. Poor little guy.
Steve did an unexpected thing for me today. I sat down to nurse Lily in the morning on the couch and he made me a cup of my favorite French Vanilla decaf coffee. It was the sweetest, unexpected thing. We've been married for almost 14 years and that has never happened. He also took the kids to the park so that I could sweep and mop the floors. It felt sooooo good to be able to sweep and mop again. I was able to do the job to my satisfaction. The kids have been helpful, but it really needed a good cleaning. Floors are my pet peeve, I guess. I love going barefoot, but I hate stepping on dirt and sticky things.
Steve is taking a nap with Jacob right now and I just caught up on my America Idol. Thanks, Diana for recording for me! BTW, I know this is crazy for a conservative Christian, but I LOVE Adam Lambert's voice. I think he is an amazing singer. My second favorite is Danny Gokey. That is the only TV show I watch. I think I like it because I enjoy singing and I have a lot of admiration for how hard they work on the different genres. Call me crazy, but I even like Simon sometimes. I wish he would be more polite about it though. But normally, he is right on the money.
Right now, life is sweet. I'm healing up. I have six amazing children, a husband who has a good job and works hard to provide for his family. I also have great friends who love me and spur me along in my walk with God. Thank you, Lord!
