Sick Sam

Whenever one of the kids gets sick Kirk gets stressed out and sympathetic and sad for them.  Not me!  Not that I like to see them sick but there are some wonderful benefits.

1. Snuggling: Neither of my kids have been that much of snugglers.  But when they are sick they like to sit on my lap and lean against me and get hugs.

2. Sleeping: I selfishly miss those days of two two-plus hour naps.  I had time to exercise, do my devotions, do work, bum around on the computer, etc.  Not now.  I get one free hour a day.  That’s enough time to maybe do one of the above things.

So, sorry Sam that you’re sick.  But thanks for snuggling with me, falling asleep in my arms, and letting me get so much done as you sleep your cold away.  And thank you Joanna for also falling asleep and giving me over an hour of a completely silent house.  Ahhh, thank you God for hearing in my complaining heart the need for this day of quiet at home.OK, so it’s not a picture of either of the kids sleeping but isn’t he handsome anyway?
