Did you expect this?

How many times have I told you my biggest disappointments come when my children get sick? If you've been reading my blog from the beginning, then you've heard this many times before. I've probably blogged about this more than any other topic in fact!! Ha!

Should've seen it coming! Did you see it? I didn't see it, but I should've expected it! The enemy attacks once again! (As if he doesn't know that my Savior has already won!!)

Princess has strep. She's had a very high fever (as high as 104 at times!) - poor baby. She's puny, to say the least. But! Seeing how the flu is going around and that would last way longer than strep, we'll take it! I'm honestly relieved that it isn't the flu. She started the antibiotics today and should be feeling much better by tomorrow evening.

Meanwhile, I've stocked up on girly princess movies for her to watch - like this, this and this! We've got the most-liked bubble gum flavored Tylenol and Motrin, as well as the nasty-flavored white-chalky (no choices on this one!) Augmentin. So we should be just fine!

Except of course, tomorrow is my Bible study day! Of course I won't get to go. I had a lunch date afterwards too. So, bum!

I still won't let this get me down!!

So, so sorry to hear about the Princess's illness. I do know how hard it is on you, and I so remember going through the same thing with my three.

I'll be praying for you as you spend time with your sweet girl tomorrow and forfeit your time with Beth.

I know how hard that is to swallow. I'll even be praying specifically for you during my Bible study. We meet for the Beth Moore study at 9:30.

This is just a minor bump in the road and you'll get right back on track next week, I'm sure. Maybe you can even borrow the DVD from the leader and watch it before next week?

Anyway, I love you, dear friend, and will hold you up in my prayers.
