The rest of the day was spent laying on the couch watching movies. Thankfully, when I had a short burst of energy I threw everything in my crockpot for my homemade chicken soup (and my sweet friend Brittney brought me my only missing ingredient, but a huge flavor booster: celery). Chicken Soup always makes me feel better when I am not feeling well (and my kids love it, so that's a HUGE plus).
Slowly, throughout the day I started feeling better. Thank you to all of you who were praying for me to feel better. This morning started with tears and not knowing how I was going to make it through the day and finished with me having the energy to do two loads of much needed laundry. I so appreciate all of the sweet texts and offers I received today. I apologize if I didn't respond to them all, as I had my phone on silent much of the day, so that I could just rest.
My kids were seriously amazing today and I am so thankful for their sweet, tender hearts. I received so many sweet snuggles and just thoughtfulness from both of my kids today. My heart was blessed and I felt overwhelmed with the love I have for these amazing blessings in my life.
While today was not what I had hoped and planned for, it was a good reminder, that I need to always take time to rest and that no matter what there is always something to be thankful for! God is good...all of the time.
***Please continue praying for Tori to wake up! She had a brief 1 minute period of opening her eyes and responding today. Please pray that it happens again and for longer this time! Thank you!!!!***
