Sick is no fun...

Welp - I was sick all of last week. I went into Sunday night with the chills, body aches and a headache and came out of the ER Monday morning at 3 am with an infection. :( Throughout the week, I still had the case of the chills, fevers, headaches and body aches - general weakness. I went to the doctor's again on Tuesday and found out I had a sinus infection as well!
Rob was a huge help - reminding me to take my meds, drink lots of water, bringing things to me (as I was subjected to the couch), making me food (when I would eat). What a great hubby!

Today, we went down to DC to hand out some lunches to our homeless friends downtown. Rob gave an impromptu Chesapeake Bay lesson to some guys interested in oysters and I had a chat with a good old friend about heaven. It was a good day. :) I am glad to finally be well enough to get out of the apartment.

I am grateful

I am grateful. For sunshine. For car rides with my husband with windows down, listening to him sing along to music playing loud. For Jesus Christ pouring down his blessings and love. For my students. For 21 days of school left. For mothers. For my Heavenly Father. For game nights with good friends. For lazy Saturdays.

 Most of all, I am grateful for this video today and what it has taught me. Thank you for showing me the reality of this quote: "But if we set our face to make of marriage mainly what God has designed it to be, no sorrows and no calamities can stand in our way. Every one of them will be not an obstacle to success but a way to succeed. The beauty of the covenant keeping love between Christ and his church shines brightest when nothing but Christ can sustain." -John Piper
