This message you shared kind of ties into to what God has really been placing on my heart lately. I have definitely not been spending time where I need to. I have a woman in my life who has become a very good friend and we enjoy spending time together. We're each other's exercise buddies. However, there have been times in recent months that I have been putting time with her above spending time with my family. The other night I even had a dream that my husband and kids just walked out of my life and I had no idea where they were going or if I'd see them again. Really shook me up.
Well, fast forward to today. I get up to discover that my nine year old son has a fever of 102 and threw up during the night. And when he throws up he doesn't wake up in time. So you guessed it, I'm home with a sick kid and lots of laundry. But instead of moaning and groaning like I've done in the past, I see this as an opportunity from God to get him to myself for a while. (though right now he's watching TV and I'm obviously here, lol)
Anyway, that's what's going on with me. Hope all of you are doing well today. It may take me a while to get to "know" everyone here.
Julie, so very sorry your sweet son had a rough night (you, too) but it is always good to look on the brighter side of things. Everything happens for a reason even in middle-of-the-night adventures.
