My eldest son went down with the flu mid-October. Our “never-sick” middle one went down next, then baby OC was the last to get the flu. By the flu I am talking fevers, vomiting, in bed wanting Mama.
This flu, otherwise know as our first “Kindergarten Bug” has now affected me, Papa and Nana.
I think I told you earlier that I don’t do well when I am sick. Sickness brings in all sorts of issues that I don’t really want to deal with my “trying” to control things, my “perfectionism” and not wanting to have to ask for help. Sickness, for me, also brings into a time to go deeper into myself by having lots of time to lie around on the couch (sometimes in a fever-induced fog, but most times there are moments of sanity)
Second, here is a photo of the current concoction of medicines that our family is currently taking. And I am a naturopathic-loving, mid-wife birthing, nature hugging woman who is pretty careful at what she puts into her body.
Third, what am I learning this sickness: slow down, don’t do too much, enjoy the faces of my family and bring in those people around me who encourage/enrich my life, pray often and out loud and trust God. He is the author of all things!
And again, Be a human being, not a human doing! Just be enough Joanna!
