Well, Friday Turned Out A Little Different Than Planned!

Well Channing has not been feeling well ALL day. It started when she woke up in the middle of the night coughing and burning up! Running a fever is never fun and can make you feel bad in it's self but the cough must hurt because she is crying after every cough poor baby. She did eat well and has had a few bottles and a little pedialite. Oh how I hate to see her feel bad and know there isn't much I can do to make her feel better. Tylenol has been given and she has been napping for a few hours now! Say a prayer that she will start to feel better ASAP! The Easter Bunny is coming ya know!

The first half of the day I did my best to snuggle and love on a girl who doesn't feel good and doesn't want to be held or to be put down. It is a tough one. She couldn't get comfy enough for a nap and I know she probably ached all over. We cancelled plans with our friends for tonight in hopes that Miss C will start to feel better ASAP. Our friends little one wasn't feeling well either so it worked out OK but I just wish neither of them felt so bad! I had big plans to do laundry, clean the house and cook dinner! Well.... I am doing some laundry and the house is clean and dinner will be grilled instead tonight. I was reminded today that it isn't all about what I have or had on my agenda today but what might come up that is more important and pressing like the health and happiness of my little angel and my family. I think I get really caught up in everything being clean and organized and in its place that I forget that in the grand scheme of things that it isn't that important. I had to stop and pray today for patience and a sense of peace because I could feel myself getting discouraged that my house was a mess and I was a mess and nothing was done and Channing felt bad. I took a deep breath and tried to relax and I started to feel better and Channing started to relax and not long after she went down for a nap. God always knows how to put things in perspective for me... I will praise Him in the MORNING AFTERNOON AND EVENING for EVERYTHING. I need to be reminded daily to not sweat the SMALL stuff because it is usually NOT important at all!
