I think I can, I think I can...

So it turns out that parenting when you're feeling less than awesome is a really hard task to stay focused on. I prayed a few hundred, thousand prayers for wisdom recently and was reminded of a book I had about toddlers/elem. kiddos. A little bit of light reading and I was off to play some "I love you rituals" with my kiddo. Turns out that I was sticking with a routine whilst feeling sick, but my connection to baby bird had waned. I'm not pretending to have it all figured out- far from it, but I've noticed a significant change of attitude in our little one. Praise the Lord!
I Love You Rituals

I've still been sick- 2+ weeks of pneumonia. Apparently, the strain I had did not react to the common antibiotic I was prescribed. I've just started a Zpack today and am praying (again) that it'll take effect ASAP.

Sickness during a pregnancy has forced me, once again, to delve into a completely introspective mode. I find myself humbled by the amount of things that used to be easy that now seem like mountains to climb. And yet, I'm constantly being made aware of my blessings. The Lord giveth.The Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. It's easy to offer praise when it's easy and hard when it's hard, but we are required to sing praises to the Lord through thick and thin. And in a way, that perserverance and reminder of our dependence is the greatest blessing of all.
