there..that's better

I'm finally at a level of functioning that's more than 50 percent. I'd say I'm around eighty today. Boy, it's been awhile since I've been THAT sick for THAT long. My health really took a turn for the better when Dustin's sweet angel of a mommy drove all the way here to Summerland from Merritt to help nurse me back to health and watch the kiddies while I slept. I'm so humbled and thankful for her gracious spirit. She even cleaned my floor and scrubbed the bathroom to a higher sparkle than it's ever known. She brought, yummy soup and cookies for the kids. Truly heaven sent.

Being a mom and being sick is one of the hardest things I've ever experienced. I've never really been that sick before since becoming a mom. I couldn't lie in bed all day cuz Dustin still had to work. And my kids energy levels certainly weren't diminished whatsoever. I think that's why it took me so long to recover because I couldn't actually rest. That is until I had a helper come and give me a day off. Everyone needs a mommy when they're sick. And I'm thankful to have had one.
Sorry I've been a little absent from the scene. But, I am feeling much better.

Mommy's are the best aren't they? I can't imagine being really sick and having to still tend to children, although I am sure i will be faced with that in the future. Glad to hear you are feeling better. :)
