the flu brings out the best in people

so today i woke up with a fever. my body aches. i slept most of the day. i couldn't do anything. [thankfully my husband took madison to pre-school & i am feeling a little better--as of now] my husband took care of me all morning, well until he had to go to work, bless him. i think i forgot how miserable the flu can be. now i feel even worse for poor madison because a few days ago- she too had the flu. motherhood can be tough- i am still feverish & yucky but needed to pull myself off of the comfy chair in our living room to pick madison up from school. as a mother you have to put your child first- even on days like today- when it's the hardest thing you have to do. sometimes as a mother- you feel like you take care of everyone and not yourself...but at 4:00pm I realized how caring my little family is- and for a second i smiled. my daughter looked at me and said "it's okay momma--i'll hold your hand and take care of you." my heart melted and i thought to myself i may not be a perfect mother- but i'm raising my daughter to be quite sweet, giving & caring--and that's all that matters to me.
