Well sickness finally struck me. And at just the perfect time, when Jennifer is going out of town for 5 days.
Just me and the kids. They will be relying on me to take care of them.
They will be relying on me to feed them, play with them and provide them with a feeling of safety.
But how do I do that when I’m sick?
How do I care for my kids when I can barely take care of myself?
But this is what we do as parents, we man up (or woman up) and we take care of our responsibilities. Especially when it involves those we love the most.
We have a God who takes care of our mess on a daily basis.
He never fails. He never gets sick. He never quits on us.
That should bring us comfort. That no matter what we are going through, we have a God who looks after us, provides for us, protects us.
I don’t know if it is the medication or out of necessity, but I’m feeling a lot better.
After four days of being sick I’m feeling better.
But if you want to know the real reason I’m feeling better, just look at the picture above.
They take care of me just as much as I take care of them.
