Weekend Gratitude,- sick,-Birthday

I was asked to speak at the primary Quarterly activity at church this sat on Gratitude. There were 2 different groups pf 25 kids. I was so sick, I should have canceled, but when I got there several of the leaders and parents sounded a lot like I did. I guess its what is going around.

I like to think if I hadn't had a sinus infection and Bronchitis I would have done better--but I held their attention(what more can I ask) esp when we had ten of them wrap their hands in cloth 'bandages' and pretend to be the lepers that were healed and and I took one aside and asked him to be the one to go back and say thank you I think they enjoyed the active part

They were sweet helping each other bandage up

They all know they should be thankful I tried to focus on what people we are thankful for and the Joy that comes back to us from showing that gratitude.


I went straight to the Dr from there and slept from 3 pm till 9 AM this morn, missed church not wanting to spread more germy cheer.
My sister really wanted me to go to her children's birthday celebration sick or not. So tonight we took gifts, ate cake, snapped a few photos,and huddled (w/my germs)by the door and we were there less than 30 minutes--I hope no one gets sick
She liked her HS Musical cake

and her gifts

her brother had donuts for a cake

and showed his aunt gratitude for a gift

I'm really glad you commented because I added all my links to google reader, and I've lost everyone that I had been too lazy to put onto my links. I love your photos. And I hope you feel better. I was home with a sick boy today. Its hard missing church.

I'm sorry you're sick and hope you'll be better soon. Sounds like a good weekend but a lot to do when you're sick. I hope you can get some rest.

Hope you feel better, now, Marcia.
Finishing the week end with a birthday party isn't bad!?
And I'm with your nephew, sometimes, simpler cakes are better than 'elaborated' ones.

You are a strong lady to do all that despite being ill! I hope you are feeling better. Bronchitis is a tough thing to recover from. Your presentation must have been wonderful,and the family party looks like it was fun.

Sick is no fun. I just went back to the dr myself for some more meds. Yay. I thought you did a great job at the Primary activity!

I hope you feel better soon. May the healing you were teaching the children sweep over you. ;-)

Sure wish I had a piece of that cake right about now. :-)
