February 26, 2000


sitting on the couch

feeling rotten

remote finding nothing to watch

when sudden smiles enter the room

bearing a bucket

just in case

having been sick themselves

only too recently

and getting a hug

run back upstairs

for a pillow

and an other



life is good



Earlier in the week Daniel and Julia were alternatively sick,

with buckets and blankets beside their beds.  Today it was

my turn and they took care of me on their own accord.

It really brightened my heart to see these smiling children

enter the room to take care of their father.  Thank you Lord!
