I've been sick since Sunday. I feel like the insides of a toilet. But enough about me.
Brooke has been a champ with her medicine - nebulizer. She is almost at 100%. John has the same cold I do. Poor boy. Matthew seems to be immune to this one! Yipee! Jacob just has a cough. Scott said his throat is sore today, which is how mine started out.
A few days ago as I was walking past a TV, I caught part of a conversation and it really stuck with me.
Boston Legal (guy who looks like Captain James Kirk from StarTrek) "Life is not always a fair playing field."
I have said this over and over in my head and really thought about the meaning of this. It really sums up a lot of the feelings I have.
With regards to:
Women vs Men
Why we give birth and do all the hard work
Why some people are "different" than others
Why our children come home from school upset and crying over careless remarks.
Why others get things so easily and others struggle just to "get it".
Why its not worth harboring ill thoughts towards others and situations.
Why prayer is so important.
Why we really need to remember that when we think we are in a bad situation, that there are others who are in a worse situation.
And lastly, a joke from Jacob.
Jacob was talking about how Scott fell off the ladder and onto the truck on the way to school on Monday. (And Scott is o.k.)
Jacob: Daddy dented the truck.
Momma: Yes he did, but he didn't hurt himself.
Jacob: Do you think we should call a dentist?
