Another boy on the couch with stomach pain
And the topic is GIFT – really?!
As I ponder, I realize there are gifts to be seen.
It is a gift to have a window into his soul.
It is a gift to see God answer prayer.
It is a gift to see his character shine as he says “whatever is best for you, Mom,” when last night I ask him if he needs me to sleep in the living room with him.
It is a gift to see God teaching him lessons about thankfulness and circumstances.
It is a gift to see him rely on God and realize the power of prayer.
It is a gift to see his brother tackle his school work independently and take initiative to do that instead of hang in the living room watching TV.
It is a gift to home school and have the flexibility to read things to him.
It is a gift to see brothers, in the spirit of competition, compare the technique, volume, and quantity of barfing!
PS – I will say, these posts sure get done quickly! 🙂
