24 Days of Thankfulness: Day 14

Last week Piper experienced her first stomach virus--a milestone I'd rather put off for a few more years at least. She was a little trooper through it, however, never so much as crying! The next day Ryland got his turn at the battling the bug and was, like Piper, a happy puker who could throw up then immediately resume playing. After a full day without sickness, I thought the rest of us had dodged it but then one evening Jathan started complaining that his stomach hurt. It was so crazy. He had played all day long just fine and then just said very matter of factly, "I need to go throw up." And he did.

It's been another day and no one else has gotten sick. I'm hoping and praying and begging and pleading to God that the rest of us will not catch this bug especially since we all have travel plans at the end of this week. And especially because I'd pretty much do anything else in the world besides throw up.

Going through sickness even one so small as a random stomach bug makes me immensely thankful for good health!

Exodus 15:26
And He said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer."
