On Friday I took my youngest, Cayd, to the doctor since he was still running a fever. He was quite pitiful.
As we waited to be seen, my joints started to ache.
I started to get a headache.
I started to feel quite bad, actually.
The doctor took one look at Cayd and his symptoms and declared he most likely had the flu.
“Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” I wanted to scream.
Sure enough, he tested positive for the flu. Meaning my current headache and achy joints were most likely the beginning of the flu for me too.
By the time we picked up the prescription for Tamiflu, I was done and ready to climb into bed.
By Saturday evening I was feeling a little bit better (thanks to the little sips of Tamiflu I stole from my son’s meds.. bad mom, I know). Luckily I had the energy because I had promised my sweet friend, Angie, that I would paint my current pedestal table and have Hubby drive it to her in Dallas Sunday afternoon.
Do you remember this table?
(This was done back in my early blogging days… that means a few months ago.)
When you have a friend that you’ve been through EVERYTHING with, you do these things for her. I wanted her to have something special for her new home, and I knew she would love this!
I strongly believe that when God blesses you, you bless others. Angie was a blessing to me from the very beginning when we first moved to the Dallas area. When we went through some hard times, she was there to help me out over, and over, and over again. So, when I came across my current desk/table that came with 8 chairs that I didn’t need, I figured it was time to bless my friend with some new furniture. That meant giving her a table big enough for her ever growing family of 5, and yet small enough to fit in her kitchen. What better than a table with a leaf!
As much as I would have loved for this to have been a surprise for her, I also wanted it to match her new home, so we worked together to pick out a color that would be just perfect.
