Turning it around.

"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...


body aches,

sore throat, 

fever of 104.9, 


ect., ect.

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.
