five on friday

I'll get right to it...

It's been one of those weeks.  Joy got very sick on Monday night and since then life has been a roller coaster...

This pretty much sums up our week...

I took Joy to the doctor yesterday--they drew blood (it was awful), she is dehydrated, and has a bad virus. We've been pushing the fluids, which is easier said than done, and she is starting to act like herself...slowly.  

Right now, I sit in my living room at 4:25am because I can't sleep.  I've been up with the other two throughout the night.  Yep...they caught sister's bug.  

In other news, I had a wonderful time of communion with the Lord this morning.  I love my quiet time with Him.

Joy's new bed has become the place to be...

And so it goes...Joy puked right smack dab in the middle of her new quilt!  I won't lie,  at first I was a teeny bit more worried about that quilt, but quickly my thoughts shifted to my sick baby. And...the quilt is fine.

What I'm reading...

I read Crazy Love by Francis Chan about three years ago.  And honestly, I can't believe I'm just now reading it again.  so. good.  so. so. good.

Men are never duly touched and impressed with conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.  --R. C. Sproul

Everyone is sick of it, but this....

and this...

Joy's first piggies...

Time for me to sign off--I got one hovering the toilet.  


  1. Oh girl. That stomach virus is the WORST! My little had it in January and I don't think I slept much through the night because each cough had me hovering over his bed with a bucket to whisk him to the bathroom! Praying that it passes quickly for you! Also, CrazyLove - its sitting on my bookshelf....you have inspired me to get it out and reread! Hoping you have a weekend of rest!

  2. So sorry Joy was sick, that sounds sooooo awful. Hope sickness stays away!!!

    Your funnies were amazing, I had a good laugh this morning.

    That book sounds intriguing, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

  3. boo on that virus....hope it stays away!! i loved reading crazy love---i read it a couple years ago--you may have inspired me to pick it up again! happy weekend!!

  4. Hope the kids get better soon! We had that last week and it was brutal- It lasted forever! Love the book Crazy Love- so good!! Have a great weekend- hopefully restful

  5. Oh yuck, so sorry your babies are sick! Hope they feel better quick! LOL at the Frozen/dress meme, awesome!

  8. Happy Friday!! It is never fun to be sick and those pig tails are adorable!!

  9. hahaha that Kanye meme. righteous. and I think Id feel the same if my daughter was sick and I had an awesome quilt.

  10. Oh, Leslie, our 6 year old Grandson got it about a month ago and was so, so sick for almost a week. Bridget took him to the Dr. and then the next week hr husband got it and the next she got it. Clancy told his Momma that he wanted to go and be with Jesus. Isn't that precious! He was so sick and felt so bad that he was just ready to get it over with. I sure hope that it doesn't go through your entire family. Blessings abundant!


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment.

For our joy and His glory,
