starting to feel better

i am missing this sweet little face right now.  it is sunday night (as i write this though i will post it tomorrow), and i have battled an intense food poisoning all day - in the worst way if you know what i mean.  i will spare you the details.

my sweet husband whisked the 4 boys off to church this morning then took them to my mom's house, so i could be sick in peace.  they have been gone all day so mommy could be sick and not be tending to little ones.

i am finally starting to feel a bit better.  now sitting here in a quiet empty house is seeming a bit lonely compared to life that usually fills it.  i must be feeling well enough to notice.

just reminded once again how blessed i am in so many ways.  my just normal everyday health is one thing i take for granted so often until something like this stomach thing hits. 

so happy these little ones and my thoughtful husband will be walking in the door any minute. 

so thankful that tomorrow is a new day.

still counting gifts to 1000...
