Bug free????

We are NOT bug free yet!!! Today I came in to find a feverish Wesley perched in the big chair with his party hat, comfy covers, and animals. This pretty much sums up how my 3 sick ones feel. In their minds they want to get up and party, but their bodies are still crying out for a place to lay with comfy covers!



The praise is that nobody was up in the night last night and nobody vomited today!!!! This has to be a sign we are taking a turn for the better, right? We have remained pretty up beat and positive this whole sickness, until the wee hours of Wednesday morning when the disaster happened! OK, I can handle cleaning up the messes when they miss the trash can and the potty, BUT really I draw the line when the vomit hits the carpet! This wasn't a fun clean up and I was one very unhappy Mama! Mainly because this was one of the bigger boys who hit the carpet, and he had time to make it to the bathroom ....since he told me 3 times "I'm going to throw up" and I repeated 3 times "hurry run" and he continued to stand in one spot frozen! So, lets just say at 1 Am on Wednesday morning when Arthur and I were cleaning carpet, I began calling out to the Lord again for this sickness to pass. I also had to ask the Lord to forgive me for being bitter about having to clean the nasty carpet mess!!! Truly by yesterday the lack of sleep was catching up with me! I'm praising the Lord for last nights good night sleep and for children who today even with fevers and some cramping look to be on the up swing. As in all things in life this too will pass, but when sitting in the middle this it's often times hard to see past that very moment. I am once again reminded of my human weaknesses, and God's great mercy, strength, and love.



Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weakness.
Romans 8:26

I do so hope that the Munck household is finally bug-free!!! It is bad enough with the 6 of us, but the 12 of you??? Thankfully by his grace He has truly carried you guys through.

I'll still wait a few days before I breathe near you though!! (ha!)

Love you all,
Linda

And I am still praying my hubby and I don't catch that lovely offering going around town either! As bad as it is to have the virus, I think cleaning up after it is worse.
