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
