Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

In Abbie, Desi, General, Les by Les BrownLeave a Comment

So far in 2011 I’ve already taken three sick days. What in the world? Desi has been laid out twice with a stomach bug and now the flu. I had a sinus infection and stomach bug. Abbie’s had pretty much all of the above. We’re kinda worn out right now. We need to rest up and heal up.
Except the boys. They are raring to go every day all day. They’re like little fun bombs ready to go off at any moment – totally great when you’re ready for it, but not so much when you can’t lift your head off the pillow. Thankfully, Desi and I haven’t been sick yet at the same time, so we’ve been able to cover for each other although I’m starting to wonder how long that’s going to last.
2011 has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start for BrownTown. However, here’s the good news – none of us are really sick – just annoying sick. We’ve got plenty to eat and money to get more when we need it. Clean water flows right into our house when we want it to, and doesn’t when we don’t. We can sit at breakfast and read the Bible together. We’ve even got great friends who dropped off tasty soup to help with the healing process. All in all, I wouldn’t order this up, but I’ll take it. God’s been unbelievably good to BrownTown. We’re thankful.
