Well, I am now officially a parent. Last night at 1:30 I got my certification in vomitus removal with honours in "Hugging your child when they're covered in throw-up".
Rod and I both had it...me on the trip home (yeah, really nice) and Rod after we got home (all night long). We thought Jacob was only going to have diarrhea, but I guess not. He'd been eating mostly Mr. Noodles and rice and crackers and dry toast in an attempt to alleviate it and it was getting better. I tried getting some yogurt into him last night and I think that's what did it. So I was up from 1:00 until 4:30 and slept fitfully with him until 7:30 or 8:00. I had a short nap this afternoon and actually feel okay right now.
Changing the subject, I had the joy of getting back into dance a bit at church. God seemed to be telling me to focus on that more...to get some more freedom in this area. It was fun to cut loose a little and also to do a bit more learning. I'm looking forward to more.
Glad the holidays are over. Hoping that this flu bug will leave our home very soon. This year, I hope to declutter other stuff, too and make room for beauty. That sounds like a good idea for my life, come to think of it. Rod and I are just beginning to read "Experiencing God" by Henry Blackaby. I love how powerful the Scriptures are that he cites. The Word of God has been rather dull to me for quite awhile. So in the next six weeks, we hope to finish it. This will be quite a test for us, as we often have good ideas but don't persist with them to the end.
Heard a funny saying today. Here's the second half of it: "If you're going through hell, don't stop". Have a great day!
