More Cold and More Flu

It's been cold and we have snow on the way!  The forecast for the central part of Indiana is 6-10 inches of snow starting tomorrow morning.  Ugh!  But I will put up with the cold and snow if it raises the water tables.  I do not look forward to a summer with a drought!

Son #5 became ill Monday evening.  He was very tired during school classes on Monday, by the evening he had a fever.  It was apparent Tuesday morning he had been hit by the flu bug.   So over the last several days we now have a total of five, still including Son #5 with the flu!  I pray that it does not hit us all!  I feel like all I have done over the past couple of days is take temps, deliver medication, and send hubby to the store for 7-up and Gaterade!

May your spring weekend be wonderful no matter what the weekend holds!

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!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
