Today, we were supposed to tour the Houston Space Center. We had made plans to give to someone on the way into Houston. We had the day all set on our calendars, but in the middle of the night our youngest got a fever (~102+) and then threw up. Children's Tylenol came to the rescue and she was finally able to fall back into a restless sleep.
This morning we decided it would be better for our family to stay home. We actually contemplated going anyway, but concluded that our little one needed extra attention (at home). Today, mostly consisted of Stephanie holding our sick child trying to comfort her between wimpers. I spent most of the time playing with our oldest. We all wanted little sister to feel better.
Right now she is in bed sleeping. Her temperature is 101.5.
Today was one of those days where it was better to turn our giving towards our family rather then forcing something to happen for someone else. If you and your family aren't healthy (physically or otherwise), you won't make as good a giver for others.
Sometimes our plans get foiled. That's okay. Tomorrow is another day.
