"Mom! Please come outside and see how nice it is?!"
"MOM!! You GOTTA see me HIT the ball!!"
"Play catch with me, mom, please."
Tonight, I just couldn't resist my children's pleas through the open window.
The sun was shining, the breeze was lightly blowing and I knew I had to get out there.
For me, last week was brutal...
fever of 104.9,
I can honestly say that I have never been so sick in my entire life.
I guess that happens sometimes when you are a teacher and your immune system isn't in tip top shape.
Thankfully I have some pretty amazing family and friends who care for me and picked up the slack when I couldn't bring myself to get out of bed.
There were times I wondered if I was ever going to get better, especially on day 5 of being bedridden.
But I am on the upswing, and I can't let it define this week.
So, even though it was just a moment that I watched them, it was a moment that made me smile and realize …
sometimes the bad moments happen
so we can truly appreciate the good moments.
