You guessed it. I caught SJs tummy bug. Stomach flu is the actual worst. I think in the 10 years before SJ was born I had it once. However, in the last 19 months this is the third or fourth time I have caught a stomach bug. No fun.
Initially I thought that I could maybe distract myself with writing an intersting post but I feel too sick to concentrate. Instead, just a quick check-in.
So, I am just going to leave you with these thoughts:
1. I am so so grateful right now (and all the time) for my parents. Edd is currently in England, so they picked up SJ earlier to look after her while I have such an intimate relationship with our toilet. How do single parents do it that have no family locally? I feel immensely blessed and very happy about our decision to move here.
2. However, even though I am in absolutely no shape to look after a toddler currently, I still feel sad to not put SJ to bed right now. Weird. I never thought I could be this emotional. Motherhood, you guys. No end of viruses and emotions.
3. Sometimes I am under the illusion that I have a body. Times like these remind me that I am my body. I feel terrible right now with all that I am. These realisations lead me to ponder bodily resurrection and dualism. I have nothing to say on these topics right now, but this is how my mind works. (In case you were wondering, which you probably weren’t.)
4. The verse for the day feels very apt right now: “We always carry the death of Jesus in our body, so that the life of Jesus may also be displayed in our body.” 2 Corinthians 4:10 CSB I am praying to experience the second part of the verse soon. AMEN.
Over and out
That’s all from me for today. I shall go and feel sorry for myself now. Hopefully I am back with regular posts again tomorrow. Good night.
