It can be a state of being, an action, and a game all in one! I can explain.
My youngest crew member has gotten a chest cold. Now, on a normal 7 year old this is not a big problem. A little cough medicine some vicks and they are usually on their way. But, not this one. He has an interesting condition that almost every time a cold moves into his chest, he gets an upper respiratory asthma attack. It´s pretty scarry.
Yesterday, he took a long nap instead of Karate and then awoke to no one at home but Mommy. We took full advantage and played a game of Dutch Blitz together. (It´s definitely more fun with more people, but my boys have gotten so good now that they are beating me every time. ) When the rest of the crew got home, of course they wanted to play too. So in turn, Mommy played Dutch Blitz with each one, getting beat each time. ( Didn´t I mention that already?) So, it turned into quite an action packed evening even with Michael being sick!
But then I really got blitzed, when our little guy couldn´t sleep most the night due to his breathing and coughing. I was praying he could just go back to sleep and breathe normally. I usually pray with him and over him till he gets to sleep peacefully or at least till he is calm. It wasn´t till later in the morning when his breathing finally got a bit better. We are so thankful that we did not have to take him to the hospital this time.
And so my state of being today...
Well, the only word that comes to my mind is
But of course
Blessed to have such a crew!
