With a child on my heels, the flu bug took over as my daughter stood watching… and giving the play-by-play.
“Oh, Mommy,” she gasped. “What is happening to you?”
Head hanging, sweat dripping, and tears surfacing… I looked at her and told her it would be okay… even though it was clear to the both of us I was not.
When mom goes down, the ship starts taking on water. The quicker she heals, the faster it rights itself. The best way to make a mom’s sick day is to shorten its duration, and for that… rest is key.
Pray for Her Healing
Instead of drilling mom with “how-too” questions, give her the space she needs to breathe. We are creatures of habit, and when the routine things mom does suddenly dissipate, we feel like fish out of water.
