Unbelievably, with what has to be the worst timing ever, Vi has come down with Chicken Pox. I am completely blown away by this because she was vaccinated and I honestly didnt think that kids got them any more. Welp. Turns out, they do. Just to a lesser degree than WE did and apparently you dont rub your kids on other kids to infect them anymore ”like in the olden days when my mom was a kid” as Vi has been telling people. She is handling it like a caged lion. She‘s not itchy or uncomfortable in the least - and for that I am obviously happy, but she is contagious and cant go anywhere....and Kindergarten graduation is TOMORROW. And dance recitals, last days of school and all the year end fun that goes along with it. She doesn’t seem too bummed out about the actual graduation ceremony but she is upset about missing the last couple days of school. I’m probably more upset about it all than she is.
The Husband and I just got back from an awesome trip (kid-less for the first REAL time) and I have felt behind and unable to get caught up this whole week. As all parents know, this time of the year is absolute madness. And now on top of it, we are diseased. Insert tear gushing emoji. Then this morning as I was trying to figure out where to start my mom sent me a text to check in., and gave me two little words that made me cry and also have helped put me at a place closer to calm. God Knows.
God Knows. He does. He knows that I am not a fan of this timing. That I am freaking out about all the stuff that needs to get done, events that need to happen. All of it. And yet for whatever reason, we have been “blessed” with the Chicken Pox. What the heck??? But here’s the thing. I choose to trust Him. I choose to trust that His plans are always good,, that His timing is perfect, that He’s got it all under control and that this is what He wants to happen. Its not about what I want. Maybe its about what we NEED. I honestly have no idea what the lesson is going to be here...big or small. But I’m trying to relax and let it go and realize that in the grand scheme of things, its not that big of a deal. That God knows. And He‘s got this.
I‘ve been working on a new song....as usual I have the chorus and now I’m just waiting for the verses to come. But I’m going to share it anyway because it goes along with this day and this “whatever”. These Little Lessons.
I’m going to take the kids to the Dr. tomorrow before we would be heading to school...maybe a miracle will happen over night and the pox will be off our house. Maybe not. I dont know. But God Knows. I hope that you can find those two little words encouraging for you too....for whatever you need them for today.
