Letters to My Kids

The One with the Mixed Up Days

Funny story. I was going to write a “Top Ten Tuesday” post. 
But then I realized it was Wednesday. 
Why am so confused? 
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was sick Sunday and missed church and youth group. That totally throws off my groove, ya know? Although I didn’t go through the typical Sunday routine that I’ve a part of for the past, oh, I don’t know, 26 years of my life, I did still participate in a Sunday morning worship service. Thanks to the wonderful church I attended during my college years, I watched a live feed of Pastor Mark’s advent sermon. It was so cool. And even more cool to know that my family was sitting in the sanctuary at that very minute. 
It might also have something to do with the fact that I’ve been to an elementary school Christmas concert AND a middle school band and chorus Christmas concert in the last week. That is a very unforgettable experience, no matter how many middle school concerts I’ve been to in the past few years. Which is a lot. I’m thinking somewhere in the realm of 8 or 10. shew. I give those directors crazy KUDOS! 
What else is distracting me? Christmas planning. My extremely dry, cracked hands. The blisters and callouses on my feet thanks to terrible running shoes. Wanting to go home to help my mom since she significantly damaged her back when she fell down the stairs. Hoping Kevin’s sickness wouldn’t last long. Hoping Kevin would get his 20 page page done asap. (I think I stress for him.) My stuffy, runny nose. 
Awww, yes, it’s the mostwonderfultimeoftheyear (as Sara) says.
How are YOU holding up this holiday season?

  1. Oh no!! I hope Mama Fish is OK. I'll definitely add her to my prayer list.Sorry to hear Kevin is sick too. :( Seems like you have a lot on your plate. I'll be praying for you guys!!(and as for the dry, cracked hands, I advise using St. Ives lotion. I use Avon stuff for most everything, but St Ives lasts all.day.long and really seems to heal dry skin. Just a thought)Love you!

  2. It was great to share a worship service with you Sunday morning. It is really cool to know that people all over the world are sharing the experience when we sit in the sanctuary. I hope you and Kevin feel better soon. We'll see you Christmas Eve.Dad E. (the "in-law")
