It has been one of those weeks, when 3 of your 5 kids are sick and missing school every other day. You are constantly exhausted from wiping runny noses and making soup. The house is falling behind and you need a shower. Your littlest one is whining about everything and you are "all done" with all the sickness. You find a minute to sneak a way and blog, grateful for the peace and quiet. Still delirious you try to post but the two minutes you have been typing is interrupted by a little angel asking for drink. You manage to calmly agree to fill her cup and as you head to the kitchen, a little hand wraps around two of your fingers. All at once you realize that you are the lucky one. You are the lucky one who gets to wipe the runny noses and comfort them when they are feeling so badly. You are the lucky one who gets to love these little children. You are the lucky one because they bless your life SO much. You are the lucky one who gets to enjoy the warm feeling that fills you heart with joy by the simple thought of their smiling faces.
I am the lucky one.
