We're fighting a lot of illness in our home. Jules and Ginny had croup most of November and December. Right now we're all fighting a nasty cold.
It's just knocked us all onto our bums. We are just hunkered down and staying home, while trying to keep the household running. As there usually is someone well enough to keep things running, it's going well.
This is Christopher at one of the worst moments. He took a lot of naps, and this was one of the times he was awake and wanted to be with the rest of the family.
So what is joyful about this? We know everyone will recover. We have good moments. Life is still good while sick. We can still read together, play games together, and pray together... for good health, if nothing else! That is joy. To hear the faith in my littlest's voices as they pray for everyone to stop coughing and sleep well.
