Thank you all for the prayers and thoughts. Our Little Guy did wonderfully through his surgery. He had a long morning /afternoon and was so very brave. He wants everyone to know..." He never even cried once." (A direct quote). He is feeling pretty "ouchy" and is getting a lot of rest.
We had our Friday Night Pizza night tonight as is our usual tradition. Each Friday Night we make six homemade pizzas. The older children all pitch in and it is great fun. Tonight Sweet Pea wanted a turn to make some pizza. We had had a a full school day (and with a trip to the hospital) I was busy playing catch up with laundry and tidying. I really did not want to make more dough and suggested she play play-doh instead. The older children quickly offered some of their dough and she happily made a pizza and for her Wee Boy.
My children teach me so much with their generous hearts. It blessed me so much to see them want to include their sister and in turn how she she wanted to bless her brother.
It's so easy for me to forget that the laundry will always be there. Even before we had children there was always some laundry to do and always some housekeeping to be done. When all of our children are grown there will still be laundry beckoning me. However, I only have a few precious years to live and laugh and love my children. I am so thankful the Lord used my little ones to prompt me to stop and enjoy them this evening. I could have easily missed these moments..
