I'm not the warm, fuzzy, "mothering" type of mama. Though I have mellowed as I've aged. ::wink::
I'm known for quarantining my children when they are ill...and they are fine with this....school continues for the rest of us...the ill child gets the DVDs in his/her room....all are happy...they have a bell to let me know if they need anything....it works. It works so well Zander dreams of being sick, "No school, movies, and you get a bell!"
I am, however, a bit more nurse-like with a husband home from surgery. And so....today was filled with pain meds, cooking bland food, trying to entice an appetite, sitting and chatting.....
The day also included enough good friends to satisfy an extrovert's need to socialize.
Christina and Lacey came over to finish our romp through Ephesians. It's been timely, challenging, fruit-producing. Christina leaves Japan in a few days. It was a bittersweet session. I am blessed by their gentleness with my silly driving inadequacies....they even brought lettuce, broccoli and ice out.
Akiko-san came over and showed us how to make Soba the "cheater way"...tomorrow we will venture to a farm and learn to make soba noodles from scratch. Michael insists we go.
Jim and Marvie stopped by and brought some yummy cranberry bread, real nursing advice and a sweet touch of friendship.
It's been a good day. I'm thankful for much as the day ends.
Living all of life before the face of God...
