Sick Day

For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things.
(2 Nephi 2:11)
But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things.
(2 Nephi 2:24)

There is something special in caring for sick children, it touches a spot of my heart and I feel an increase in my abilities to be patient, tender, and loving. I am able to do so much while I would have been more exhausted on a normal day. This feeling helps me see the kind of person I would like to be more consistently. Although I don't like to see my children or our family suffer in any way, there is a great lesson to learn in our trials, and a strength we can get no other way.

I am truly grateful to a loving Father who teaches me and watches over my sweet little angels.

When I am sick, or see a loved one sick, it makes me appreciate good health and happiness more!
