I have been complaining too much over here so I want to list some blessings today:
(can you tell I'm finally seeing some light at the end of a very long tunnel???)

*All of my kids are back in their beds to sleep - you remember this whole flu bug thing started exactly one week ago today!!

*No bloody noses last night!!

*No vomiting last night!!

*Chloe only got up THREE times last night!!

*I got five hours of sleep IN A ROW last night!!

*The boys slept ALL NIGHT!!

*When I got home from work last night, Joe had the whole house cleaned and sanitized and I AM NOT KIDDING!! I love that guy!!!

*All of my little ones are up and around today!

*Chloe is the only one still on meds! (Well, if you count cough medicine, then so is Aaron!)

*There is NEW SNOW on the ground!!

*I have super friends and family!!

*Through this past week, Chloe has started telling us when she has to go potty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Don't say it too loudly, I don't want her to know it's a GOOD thing!!!!) It may be those pull-ups Joe bought that turn cold when she pees - he is brilliant!!

*We have a BIG GOD that heals our frail bodies even after they've been through "the wringer" - Thank you God!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
