Well, after this insane week I'm drained. I'm unplugging the rest of the weekend to get refocused. Madison was released and remain on IV antibiotics for 10 days. Madison and I arrived at Pop and Great Gran's house around noon to get Harrison and Mae. So thankful for my grandparents and their willingness to help us in so many ways. This is a picture of Madison walking to Pop and Great Gran's for the first time!
Mom (Nene) came home from work early since her arm was throbbing. Ninja Nene was working on her "Tire Jumping" skills last night and fell. With a broken arm the kids feel they need to stay with her (she needs a doctor and a nurse).❤️ Honestly, Harrison and Mae just want her sling❤️ Please pray that she gets comfort soon! Kyle came over from Edwardsville this morning and did Mom's hair! I am blessed beyond measure to have such amazing brothers!
The plan was to be homebound all week.... Our prayer for the week was for stillness, peace, and love.... I find it humbling when those prayers are answered in the midst of a storm. In storms God's love shines bright!
I enjoyed our time with our Glennon family even though we were ready to leave yesterday ❤️ Three late nights, but time to think and process the last 6 weeks. The last several weeks have been one test after another. I'm feeling drawn to read the book of Job again. Days like today (complete exhaustion, van of three screaming kids, and motherly duties awaiting when I get home) I can't help, but laugh. I was never promised an easy life, but perseverance is the key to happiness!
When trials hit we are reminded of God's ultimate sacrifice and our daily blessings! At the end of the day I'm thankful for those kids screaming, the house we will go home to, and all the job security (laundry, dishes, etc.)
Enjoy your weekend! Remember to pray for your spouse and children daily! Also, please remember our Cardinal Glennon and Shelton families.
