Different kind of pink today...


You know I love pink. But not THIS pink. You see, right about now our plan was to be driving past New Orleans on our way to Disneyworld. But alas.... 3 of the 7 of us going are currently suffering from a stomach "thing." My sister is over hers and it lasted about 24 hours. Now her husband has it along with my son, Noah. I'm trying to keep my distance, but it's really hard to not hold Noah and kiss on him when he doesn't feel good. (and no, he didn't take the Pepto)

Feels funny to have EVERYTHING all packed and ready to walk out the door, yet we're sitting here watching TV, passing the time until everyone feels better tomorrow. (hopefully!) Our house sitters will have an extra day off, I guess. :)

I'm off to Joann's to get a head start on some teacher gifts I am making upon our return. :)

Please pray for us to all be well so we can LEAVE!! I know there is a reason for this, so I will trust in Him.

"I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain." - John Henry Newman
