Not Cold and the Flu Bug

Yesterday I went to get a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  Mmm...not so good when you take a bite and find your milk is not cold for being in the back of the icebox.  So I opened the freezer and sure enough behind "things" there was some ice build up.  Remove the ice and presto your icebox starts cooling again, right?  No!  So I got out my handy, dandy heat tool for embossing cards and used it to melt a new layer of ice.  I tried through out the day to convince myself that things were starting to cool off, but the convincing did not help the situation.  I took out the perishables that could be frozen and placed them in the freezer.  By the time I went to bed I was praying that the door being shut for a long period of time would help in the cooling process.

This morning it was evident that everything in the icebox needed to be tossed.  (Not so good when you just went grocery shopping a several days earlier.)  We called a repair service and by 3:00 this afternoon the icebox was working properly!  The thermostat was not working and was causing an ice build up behind a panel in the freezer.  That kept the icebox from cooling.

Last night, just before bedtime, Daughter #4 started to feel achy and was freezing.  During the late night hours Daughter #2 started feeling the same way.  Looks like we've been hit with the nasty flu bug!  They both have slept almost the entire day away!  Right now the fevers are low grade.  Now Daughter #6 has "that look" in her eyes and was complaining about being cold and really tired. :(   I am wondering what the weekend will hold?  I am praying that it will not travel through the entire family!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
