Luke 12:7~

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:7~

It seems as if our tummy virus has vacated, and an upper respiratory croupy virus has taken it's place. I thought there was some unwritten code that viruses must give each other a little more leeway than that, but apparently I have overestimated the etiquette practices of the viral world ;o).

Last night our Dear Sweet Pea was bearing the brunt of it. We called the Dr. first thing this a.m. and they were booked full for the day. There must be quite a bit of yuckiness out there as we have never had this happen. The nurse recommended breathing treatments and steam..and if here breathing worsened a trip to the ER.

Needless to say all day I have been tuned into her breathing. She napped on me instead of in her crib, and tonight she will sleep with us.

Somewhere among the steam showers and breathing treatments it occurred to me that God is always in tune with us. It amazes me to think that He knows us so well every hair on our head is numbered. What an amazing love. He never moves, and He never changes. He is always there loving us, watching over us, counting our breaths, and letting us rest on Him. All Praise be to Him! \o/


This past weekend we had a Birthday!!! Our dear sweet girl turned 8! What a darling girl she is. She is so loving, and creative, and fun.
Her 9 yo sister , who is her very best friend, had been sick, so for her birthday she asked to buy her a gift instead.

She wanted to go to Super Target and Sweet Tomatoes for lunch. I took the healthy ones, and we had a great afternoon while Jim stayed home with the others. He's a great Daddy :o)!




We celebrated with a party at home..Her birthday dinnerl choice was chicken spaghetti.
Later we had popcorn and chips and Salsa..
and an ice cream cake.
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!!!

For croup, another thing that sometimes helps is to turn on the shower really hot and let steam fill up the bathroom. Then bring her in and hold her in the steam for a few minutes. Bringing them out into the cold (you don't have cold though, do you?) night air seems to help, too. Good luck!!
