Good News~Bad News

Bad News first:
We may have a nasty stomach bug going on... I say 'maybe' b/c so far only one of my kids had it, but it was not the 24 hours and over and done with it type of bug...noway.  It was 4 and a 1/2 long long days of it.  The poor thing , my 6 yr old boy, is a string bean to begin with!  It looks as though he might have lost 5 pounds!  The sweet boy that he is said to me, barely being able to speak, after a really bad bout of sickness "Mom, thanks for taking care of me."  Of course I would!  That's what Mommas do.  You are so welcome, lil buddy.  Mommy feels for you.  The rest of the gang seem to be okay for now.  Time will tell.  The ticking time bomb continues...As for me, I, have that nauseous feeling all day long.  Seriously.  So, me + helping throwing up kids or cleaning throw up is not a good combo.  But I do it.  B/c God calls me to.  B/c it is not easy but with His help, I know we can together. 

Good News:
Did you notice I said 'nauesous feeling'?  You know what that means, if it is not a stomach bug, right?  It can only mean one thing...  YUP!  Baby #7!  The kids are so thrilled-God answered their precious prayers for a new baby!  We're about 1 1/2 months along right now and feel so blessed and thankful.  Please pray for us as we embrace this precious blessing from above.  (nauesousness and all!)

God bless,
