Making your home a haven – Inviting and giving – Day 5

…Day 5 of the Making your home a haven is inviting and giving. I was struggling trying to think of what to do for this part of the challenge yesterday but events of the night have taken that struggle away…

My oldest son came into my bed in the night and was moaning in his sleep. Finally, he snuggled up to me and said those fateful words “I think I have to throw up!”

The rest of the night consisted of washing sheets and blankets (he had already thrown up)…rubbing his stomach and head…and worrying about when the rest of them would get it! I had planned on going out to dinner with Wendy and Pat (our surrogate Grandmother and aunt) but that will be cancelled for a quiet family night. Hopefully we can get some sleep tonight and will feel better tomorrow cuz it looks like it will rain all weekend and having 4 kids in various stages of stomach sickness stuck in a house because of the rain might just send me completely over the deep end.

So, I’ll leave you with a quote that I love…

You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.– Winston Churchill

  1. Oh, no! I’m so sorry. I hope he feels better and that the others (and you and Nastia) become miraculously immune to it. Have a restful (I hope!) weekend.
