My Wonderful Mom

Since Thursday our family has been fighting the flu that has been going around. I caught it Friday night and on Saturday and Sunday I pretty much did nothing except lay on the couch or my bed. On Sunday night I called my mom to talk to her about my dad’s birthday party this next weekend and I told her that we were all sick. The next morning she calls back to tell us she is on her way over (a 2 hr. drive one way) with a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. I told her that she probably shouldn’t come because I didn’t want her to get sick but she said she wanted to come any way. Along with the soup she brought garlic bread, lemon lime soda, hard candy for sore throats, oranges, fruit salad, and a bunch of veggies from her garden. As you can see we were totally spoiled.

Austin, Karissa, Brendan, and I are all still sick today though feeling much better. Tyler seems to be totally better. Ethan and Aleigha are just now getting sick, and Jacob started feeling sick Sunday and still is today though it didn’t hit him very hard thankfully.  So please keep us in your prayers.                   -Angie

  1. It is always such a blessing when anyone steps in and helps out in a situation like that but when Mom goes the extra mile(s) it is so sweet! We really do have an amazing family.
