The start of our week....

Here's a recap of the past 3 days....

27 dogs boarding at the store (spring break for schools) So Great Doggie Doos is busy, and we are thankful!

Now I'm praying tomorrow won't be the same pattern as Monday through Wednesday. If it is then I get to cuddle with the littles more than normal, read until I need a drink of water, color some pictures, give medicine to calm the raging fevers, and pray that this virus will pass. All the while remembering they are little for such a short time, so I'll soak in every moment I have with them. For one day they will be to big for cuddles, or wanting me to read, for coloring pictures, or needing Mama to administer medicine. One thing is for sure they will never outgrow their Mama praying for them, whether sick or well. Oh how thankful I am to be their Mama, for I know that I'm blessed.

Cuddled up on the couch with Mama, what a great place for a child to be :-) Praise the Lord you take the time to sit and give them love, attention and a bit of you for a while.

I hope you're all feeling better soon.

If there is a sunny side to sick little ones - it's all the extra cuddles mommies receive :) Hope everyone is on the mend and feeling better soon.

And the benefits are "cuddle time", for this too shall pass! Oh, how hard it is in the midst of it, then suddenly they are up and running around and our arms are aching.....aren't we mamas funny!!! As quiet as you were, I had a feeling this was going on! I'll be praying for strength, peace and health for your family!

Glad the doggy business is doing great but too bad some of the kids have been sick.

Great pictures of all your family in the below posts. Little miss Ruth Ella is so adorable!!

Happy b-days to the birthday kiddos! Love the then and now pics as well.

Everyone get well and stay well!

Awe Dear Munck family,
Sorry that ya'll are having a rough week. How about some soup? That always makes things better if you do not have to worry about "dinner"! We will pray for a better weeks end. I also pray that your head is better, my sister suffers from terrible migraines, it is so sad I do pray that you are better. Is Baby Ruth-Ella sick? Oh, we feel badly for you all! Praying for a very quick recovery! God bless,
Lori for all

I hate to hear that you all are sick. I figured this would be a busy week for you all since so many go out of town about his time. But Wow that is a lot of animals. Is that a record breaker? I'm sure it has been a tough week with so much sickness. Praying you all are well very soon!! Take care, Missy and the Parris household, everyones says Hello!!!!!

Mountain Mama said...

Definitely not fun to be sick or to have sick ones but it is definitely nice to have all the snuggle time. So...enjoy! :-)

I was going to ask you what you your family business was - now I know. Sounds like a fun. It would be fun to read a post of all the things you do with your doggy business.

Praying all get (and stay) healthy.
blessings,
ashley

Hey Laura, Hope you all are doing better. I sent you an email too. Missy

I chuckled at the "mama migraine" part. Sorry I haven't been by lately. I don't know where the time goes. If I just had a couple of extra hours. And now, it's almost 9 pm.

I hope everyone feels better soon. Love you, T
