Tired Yet Fulfilled Mom

Hey Guys, how's your week going?

The past days, it seems that hours in my day are getting shorter and shorter - with my home-based work, homeschooling, taking care of a toddler and a tweener, a wifey, a kids' church volunteer, etc, etc.  Oh well, just a normal week for me. :-)

But today was an exceptional day.  Everyone in the family got fever and cough.  This virus has been circulating in my home for the past days, but today, it got my whole family - including Dad, who has not been sick for years.

I am not used to doing things in the house, it is normally Dad who takes care of everything with the help of the helpers and nanny.  I will just work quietly in our room.  That is how blessed i am - thank God for my husband.

So for the first time in ages, i got to be a REAL mommy, taking care of children and a REAL wife looking after my husband.

All throughout the day, i need to monitor the medicines, giving them sponge baths, assisting to the comfort room, preparing their food, comforting them and most of all, loving them.  It was sooo tiring but fulfilling.  It is really true that giving is better than just receiving.

I was just praying all throughout the day that if i will get sick, let them be well first. It was because midday, i can feel that my body is already weakening and burning up.  It is a good thing, i finished the day well.

After this wonderful day, i just need to celebrate and treat myself after.  I prepared myself a cucumber salad - my favorite snack.

I know that it was only by God's grace i was able finish everything and in all honesty, i love doing all of those for them.  But... i am not looking forward to doing it again anytime soon. :-)
