When your child feels icky...What drives your life?Thursday, November 18, 2010
"A man isn't poor if he can still laugh. "-- Raymond Hitchcock
How would you feel when your “jester” child has lost his happy tune?
The worst thing a mother goes through is seeing their child not feeling well. One of my kids has been sick on-and-off for 4 weeks now. My child has not really complained until recently and this week had been totally frustrating.
The ironic part is that 4 weeks ago, the pediatrician commented on how healthy my son was, and then a few days later (after his flu shots), he has seen the doctor/specialist at least once or twice a week.
The sad part is that my son is feeling the way he is feeling because of the antibiotics/medicine.
My one wish is to have happy children!
Everyone’s life is driven by something” – Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life.
And for me at this time, I only wish for my kids to remain happy.
I’m on Day 4 of “The Purpose Driven Life”. With the chaotic week, the few peace I get from reading a chapter day had helped.
Here are some points to ponder.
Day One: It’s not about me
Day Two: I am not an accident
Day Three: Living on purpose is the path to peace
So today, try to laugh! It definitely is the best medicine!
