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.

  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!
