If only you could hear the amount of complaining I have done lately. It must be some kind of record!
These are things I have learned while coughing and hacking the last couple weeks:
I am not tough enough for Texas.
It is hot here.
Complaining really doesn’t help... but I all the same I cannot stop.
Watching hours of TV is really disgusting.
Being sick makes you realize how much love He has for you every day. All those days you run around with bounding energy to do laundry and jump rope outside with crazy kids, I miss that and never want to take it for granted.
Lemonade popsicles are delicious.
Properly working lungs are very helpful. I have never puffed on a cigarette and it makes me nauseous to think people pay money to do that.
Some of our kids flew to Grammie’s house today. While it feels absolutely ridiculous to send them alone on a speeding plane high in the sky I know they are thrilled and having fun. I will join them later on and we will hang our feet off the dock and they will sit and tell me things because they will be older and wiser for their new life experiences…and I will love every minute of this.
