I'm not sure how many stomach bugs we have had on this furlough. Four or five? Sometimes I'm not sure if it is the same bug or a different one or if it is from all the different food or water. Traveling, we are around many, many people and many new places. I think I've cleaned up more "sickies" the past 2 months than I have in the past 5 years...in the car, in a home, in a parking lot, at a hotel. Last night, I was up all night long as the 4 youngest took turns getting sick all night. Sooo thankful to be staying where there are 2 washers and dryers. Thankfully, they seem to be much better this morning. We have a long day of driving ahead of us and I think getting sick in the van is my least favorite place to clean. We are leaving NY today and heading to Michigan where Daniel is preaching Sunday.
I haven't mentioned this less than pleasant side of our travels much to anyone. But this morning I was thinking of how many people pray for us who read here. And so would you please pray for health for our family. I am so thankful that neither Daniel nor I have been sick and the Lord is so good to give strength each day even when the nights are long and there is little rest. What good times to pray those long night watches are!
Time to load up the trailer and head out. First stop...Walmart for more zip-lock bags (for sickies), diapers, and wipes. :-)
