I was sick last Sunday and missed my grandpa's 80th birthday party. I had been looking forward to getting to see all of my mother's family. But instead, I spent the whole day in bed alternating between reading and sleeping - and that was nice too.
One of the thing I really enjoyed doing was getting caught up on reading some blogs I had gotten behind on.
There was Laurel and her honest plea for prayer as she learned to be still, followed by a post about a discovery that blessed her heart.
There was Rachel and her sweet posts about her 2.5 year old, and her teaching (Rachel, I know you probably wouldn't call that post "teaching" - but for someone who couldn't make it to church, it really met a need) on the mundane moments in life.
And, if you're needing to gain a perspective on where you are in life right now, I suggest you head on over to Mama M's Place. This dear mother of 6 seems to look at every busy day, every crazy "uh-oh" as just another blessing of motherhood.
Thanks ladies, for making a sick day not so bad after all.
