Things have been stressful lately. Work is busy. We are busy. It never seems to stop.
Peanut was sick two weeks ago. Mild but enough for me to take off a little early one day and stay home the next. Last week, our babysitter's son was sick so Lucas stayed home with Peanut. Now she has picked up some kind of bug and I've been analyzing her poo for the past 48 hours. I'll spare you the details but I'm keeping her home again tomorrow.
I kept thinking, "I need to go to work. I don't have time for this. I should be at work."
Then a friend posted this on her Facebook page. I don't know this family but their story has given me perspective. They are trying to decide what treatment to get for their son, who has cancer, or if they should give him the best few months before letting him go.
And I'm worried about missing a day of work.
So, please, take a moment to say a prayer for this family. Think healing thoughts or even just that they may find peace in this time.
