Surrounding myself with happy things.

I am alive. :) On Sunday I came down with a really bad stomach flu. With what I thought was just really bad morning sickness, turned into to way worse with a fever and body aches. I ended up spending the night at in-laws because we had gone over there to celebrate Father's Day and I couldn't move. After spending half the night on the bathroom floor, I am now thanking Jesus that it was the flu and not just being pregnant. I am not sure I could make it if so.

Of course, my poor hubby's Father's Day was spent taking care of the kiddos and taking care of me. I felt so bad. He was sooo good to me and went above and beyond the call of duty. :) I owe him a big steak dinner!!!

We went to the Dr. last week and saw/heard the baby's heartbeat. That was very sweet for us. I actually teared up. I was surprised by my reaction and so humbled by the life that God has put inside me. It's truly amazing. My Dr. also gave me a prescription for Zofran which has helped tremendously (except for Sunday..wink, wink). I am so glad we are almost into July. As long as I can get past this 1st Trimester I will be good to go. I'm almost there!!

The kiddos are doing well. They have been extra sweet these days. Trust me, they have their days still, but I have been thanking God for how good they are. Jackson is getting super interested about this baby. He's been asking lots of questions. Makes for...interesting discussions.

Things that are making me happy:

My husband. :)
My precious kids.
Worship Music.
The peace of God.
My faithful friends.

Here's to a new week.

I'm sorry to hear you were so sick. I heard this scripture this morning on the radio...there seems to be a theme beginning here...
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Zofran doesn't make you happy too??
