Is it over yet?

At last count, we have four ear infections, two sinus infections, and two eye infections... and my dear husband is feeling awful as well, with a cold that has just lingered... and lingered... and, well, you get the point.

I suppose the Lord had different plans for me for Lent this year.

By His grace, I am finding myself thinking more about treating others as I would like to be treated during this long illness spell, rather than responding with exasperation and frustration (with the notable exception being Thomas. I'm sorry, I don't care WHO you are -- after a while the sympathy well runs dry, and that's all there is to it. An ill two-year old would tax even the greatest saint's patience.)

Pray for us.
