Momma never rests!!!

I have been a wife for 17 years and a momma for almost 14. I have known my husband for more than half my life. I have never had my wife/mom duties put to the test like they were this weekend! I love my family dearly and have come to realize with full force that ...... they cannot function with out me!!!!
My hubby wasn't feeling himself this weekend and both of my kids were sick. They have the all dreaded "spring cold"~ sore throat, runny noses and low grade fevers. I have had to baby them as well as my hubby all weekend! The phrase "Momma ain't got time to be sick" is SOOOOOO true! In between getting the kids medicine and loving on my poor hubby, Momma didn't get much done for herself!!!! And by the way..... why does everyone need what ever they need AFTER Momma might sit down for a few minutes????
All is better this morning and my hubby is back a work... don't get me wrong... I love being a wife and Momma and would not trade it for the world~Maybe just a long weekend~ alone! Just kidding!!!!!! The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children. I am so fortunate to be able to be a stay at home mom and I love it! I know that one day I will miss those runny noses and tissues laying all over the place! I need to be thankful that they still want me to take care of them! Hope your weekend was a great one!!!! Happy Monday!

Oh that doesn't sound like a fun weekend at all! It was my turn to be sick at our house. I'm glad I feel better today. Not much gets done while I'm sick.

Take care my friend!
Hope you guys have a great week!

It's nice to feel needed, isn't it :) I think we will all miss these hectic days once they go, but they sure do make you very tired. When my kids were younger I used to lock myself in my room during nap time and do a yoga video--that always made me feel better.

Hope everyone is on the mend and you are getting a little break today!
