Being home means we have been exposed to very few germs. In the short term this has been nice because there haven't been the typical colds and other bugs. It has also meant the blessing of not getting covid. It also probably means our immune systems are a little out of practice fighting off these little bugs.
Last night when my little one came down with a fever I just assumed it was teething. In the wee hours she woke burning up, not the low grade temperature she had when she'd gone to bed. Needless to say, there have been lots of cuddles and snuggles since.
Seeing my baby not feeling well is not fun. The only upside is I love cuddling my babies. They are growing up so fast and it is nice to stop and just snuggle. Even in our slower pace life these days these days my little one is on the go. While I pray she feels better soon, I will take the snuggles in this moment.
I'm grateful to snuggle. I'm grateful she is willing to take the medicine to bring her fever down. I'm grateful for her sweet kisses. I'm grateful for the sweet way her fingers wrap around me and hold tight. I'm grateful to be blessed with two sweet girls. I'm grateful we have been so healthy the last seven months. I'm grateful to know health will return. I'm grateful for a little bug to keep our immune systems exercised.
How have you been feeling? When was the last time you had a good snuggle?
May health be the norm and may we always find our way back to the balance of health when it waivers. May we get all the snuggles we need in sickness and in health. Have a beautiful day!
