sick day

in Peter Pan's Flight, observant guests will notice a set of blocks, whose letters spell out D-I-S-N-E-Y from the bottom up, as they are escorted past the window of the Darling children's bedroom.

This picture was taken back in July when Haley was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia

and this was taken last night

almost immediately after Jason got home from church yesterday we headed over to the ER, 
only to find out she's got pneumonia AGAIN

However, this time I have more knowledge about prevention the next time she shows signs of a cold

Also, can you see the goofy smile?

Have you every watched the episode of FRIENDS, where Chandler and Monica are trying to take their engagement pictures? Chandler has a great smile, until he steps in front of the camera. Then it gets weird.

We're pretty sure Haley has the same syndrome
Not sure what it is, but we've been seeing a trend the last month 
when the camera gets in front of her face

case in point

But I love her, and it was great seeing her smile last night in the ER. 
She made friends with staff and patients. 
She was a total trooper.

and throughout yesterday, God showed me His graciousness when I was beyond stressed, by:
 providing wonderful friends and family to lift us up in prayer
providing a sister in christ to watch Aidan for the day
providing a calm, easy-going husband who made all 5 hours at the ER somewhat enjoyable
providing me with scriptures and songs throughout the day reminding me of 
His presence and tender hand

And NOW I'M sick, perhaps a gift from the Lord to make me take a SICK DAY
So that's what I'm doing. 
Only 1 week into homeschool and we're taking a sick day
bathrooms are a complete mess, but I'm taking a sick day
laundry is not done, but I'm taking a sick day

And God is so good, to give me a sick day
