It started with seeing some relatives were going on vacation. They’d be less than 8 hrs. away from us. I mentioned, to hubby, it’d be great if they could come see us while they were traveling. Days later, he mulled that idea over and planned we would travel up and see his sister. We really enjoy traveling together. We would surprise the sister and see beautiful Alabama beaches.
The day before the trip, I took the truck for an oil change and felt a cold coming on. By evening, I was bundled in the bed with heavy blankets: my teeth hurt. This felt like sinusitis. I prayed. I claimed power in the name of Jesus. I quoted scripture over myself. I suggested to hubby he could take the trip by himself. He was having none of that. God only knows why He put it on Rob’s heart to love me as he does.
We make the trip. I’m on cold medicine. We got to a motel and found we couldn’t pay for 2 nights, as planned. Guess who did some poor subtraction in the check book? Yep! Now, I feel worse in more ways than one. My hubby took everything in his stride and acted like it was all nuttin but a “thang”. We would re-juggle money in the morning after a good night of rest.
We did. We saw the family and had a lovely time. I’m so glad I went. As of now, we have 3 days till we close on house number one and I have gone 5 days without washing my long thick hair. I’ve taken quick, weak showers, though. This is unheard of, right? My “cold” is settled in my chest. Between hubby coming home and doing lawns in the rain and my germs, he has caught it too. We missed church but watched services on television. Thank God for Christian television shows that share the Bible correctly. We saw the doctor the next day and hubby came away with 2 prescriptions and I came away with 3. My hubby proceeded to go to work, scripts in hand, and ended up coming home early: sick. The sickness has distracted us from tapping our foot waiting for the closing on the house.
It’s amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week we celebrated Easter and felt fine.
