Where have I been??

Oh, I've been here. : )  Thankful every single day for our wonderful news. : ) 

I haven't written in a few days, one, because I just wanted to sit on that last post for a while.  Why rush on?  And two, because every time God blesses your socks off, the devil comes in not far behind to try and steal your joy.

The boys all came to church with us for the first time in a while last Sunday, and Tuesday night, Ben had the stomach flu. : (  So, I was up all night with him that night, and it's hard to catch up on sleep after a full night of none.  Plus, I am freaked out over the stomach bug, so I have been working hard all week to keep it from spreading.  Sanitizing, sanitizing, harping at everyone to wash their hands, sanitizing some more...   I hate the stomach flu. 

A few other difficult little things popping up here and there let me know that the devil did not want me to have any fun.  But I'm sorry...a little old virus and other such bumps in the road will not take away my joy for long!!  Praise the Lord!!!

The boys and I are getting ready to fly across the country to see my family on Thanksgiving!!  Please pray that that stomach bug will be LONG GONE well before we leave.  Ben is almost all better, but not 100%.  I am still praying it won't spread, especially this close to that wonderful day.  I have not been with my entire family--mom, dad, both brothers and their families, all at one time, ever before!  It doesn't get much more exciting than that!  I just can't wait!
