That’s right, Thanksgiving night, I got sick, along with my 14 year old and my 8 year old. My poor husband had to take care of us all night long and well into the next day. He and my oldest daughter worked round the clock caring for the sickies and the little guys who were well and rambunctious as ever. I am so incredibly thankful he had off of work as I could not imagine what I would have done otherwise.
This isn’t the first time I’ve ended up with the stomach flu while pregnant. I will tell you, it seems that being pregnant makes it a bit harder to recover, and it is almost as if baby feels sick right along with me because this little one kept moving like crazy through it all.
All in all, I had to laugh that on Monday, I wrote a post about making sure we are truly thankful and God handed me quite a few things this week that required me to focus on that very thing. There were several disappointments, but in the end, I have my wonderful family, my awesome husband, a growing baby inside, and the blessings of a life lived for Christ.
I’m also really thankful, as my friend Sherri pointed out, that Thanksgiving was early this year, so I don’t feel quite as bad about the decorating not getting done on the usual day with the usual festivities. I just hope Ty ends up with a nice vacation from work and not one spent sick.
So, how was your Thanksgiving? I pray all of you felt much better than I did!
