We had a rather challenging start to our weekend. A nasty little pathogen found it's way into our home and left Cordelia stricken. Friday and Saturday were spent snuggling and cuddling a little girl who kept hugging me and saying, in a raspy voice, "I wuv you." Sweet girl.
I got one of those lessons that motherhood is so good at delivering. We let go of weekend plans and just hung out at home, following her lead. We kept a slow pace. I don't know about you, but when I am ill I just push myself to get better fast. With Cordelia we didn't. We let her roll around, sleep, snuggle, cry, cough, and go through all of those things that an illness forces upon us. I was reminded of how little control we have and I felt so thankful that we live in a time where we can get medical help when needed (for the record she had a double ear infection and some mystery throat infection).
Yesterday she was beginning to feel much better (thanks to a weekend visit to the doctor). So we decided to get out of the house and take a walk in the sunshine. We appreciated the fresh air, the changing 0f the season, the warm air, and a return to health.
How was your weekend?
