Well, it has happened.  Our household has been attacked by the Flu.

Do not come in - Do not go out.

Not fun.  Not only is my 5 month old dealing with flu symptoms, his first tooth is coming in.  Needless to say - sleepless nights.


Today is my first lesson in the primary.  I didn't get a chance to prepare until this morning.  All the cold and flu kinda kept me busy.  Plus, everything I have to do during the week does not leave a lot of time for me to prepare. Still not really feeling the calling to teach primary - but I suppose there is really nothing I can do about it.  I just need to do it! 

I really wish I had more time.  I have no time for sewing.  I have to sleep some time, don't I?

Maybe not.

I called the primary president this morning to let her know that my daughter wasn't going to be at Church to say the opening prayer.  She did ask me if I wanted her to find a substitute for my class.  As tempting as that sounded, I felt like I had to set a good example for my children.  How can I tell them to do something - like take your responsibilities seriously - if I don't?  I have a responsibility so I have to pull through and meet it.

I hope they recognize that, and in turn will do the same.

The most effective way of teaching is through example.  As annoying as it can be.

Pin It!

  1. You are wonderful! I might have just slipped on my pjs and stayed home. As a matter of fact, I wasn't feeling well today and had to call our pastor to let him know I wouldn't be making it in to do our children's sermon. I felt bad, but luckily there were only a couple (really young) children present today. It seems everyone has the flu! I hope you all get well soon!
