Learning to Ask for Help

1. Take one fiercely independent woman who hates asking for help.

2. Place her in a location that requires a 10 minute bus ride with 50 other people each morning to get children to school.

3. Add 2 chicken pox covered children who cannot be on said bus infecting the world.

4. Mix in a couple of day trips away from city for Daddy.

5. Leaves a tired mama who has no choice but to ask and accept helping hands.


Thank you Lord for neighbours who are willing to ferry Flower to and from school and other events. What a blessing!

Sorry, not much writing happening here. But lots of cuddles, swathing with calamine and general malaise. Hopefully back to normal next week.

Oh, my goodness, Miriam - that is really trying.

When my second son was born, the day I brought him home from the hospital, my two year old came down with chicken pox.

So I truly sympathize. I wish I was close enough to be of some help. Praying for you and your family. - Marsha

Oh boy. I had a similar experience to Marsha. My two-year-old got chicken pox when our baby was 2 weeks old. No matter the age, it's no fun. Hang in there, friend. Way to find the silver lining in a rough week.
