Everyone I see seems to have some sort of cough/cold/runny nose thing going on. Mine started out as achiness and a sore throat. Now I have a headache that won’t go away and some sort of sinus infection. Poor Nina has it pretty bad, and Livi and Ava can’t quit hacking.
The other day…
Me: Ava, what is that on your arm?
Ava: I accidentally wrote on myself with a pen.
Me: You accidentally drew a picture of a girl with curly hair and a dress on your arm?
Ava: (Grins impishly.)
Five minutes ago:
Me: (as Livi walks in the door after getting off the bus) Hey, were you in a bad mood earlier?
Livi: What do you mean?
Me: Sophie was trying to talk to you before the bus came, and you weren’t acting very nice.
Livi: Well, she always cares about me, and I’m tired of that!
Ha! Gabe would say she sounds like her mother. 🙂 After talking it over a bit, we (Livi and I) came to the conclusion that Sophie means well but can be a bit overbearing at times, and Livi just wasn’t in the mood to be pestered. Or something. She will try harder to act nice even when she’s not in the mood.
I’m thankful today. For my hubby and kids. For my home. For work I can do from home. For the book of Daniel and Beth Moore’s Bible study. For adorable hand-me-downs for Livi and Ava from my neighbor across the street. For a day of rest yesterday. For climbing out of debt. For the promise of seeing lots of beloved family members in a few weeks. For this brief time we have to glorify Christ on this earth.
