After spending 7 days thinking to myself ALOT and worrying if I would see the end of the week or not with this FLU. I tell you, I was one more scared woman with my little girl and then seeing the rest of us of how bad we were. It hit us hard. I do want to thank a minute and thank my commenter on this post. Out of all the 6 other medicines we tried, her suggestion in that last comment made our turning point to get over this awful FLU. I will definitely remember this for a long time and suggest it to others. Thank YOU KAT from the bottom of my heart.
Like I said, I did a lot of thinking of our situation right now and with my husband being in Florida and myself here with my 3 girls.
We are on the move again to find a nice warm, respectful, and caring household for us until we can be together all as a family again. You may ask, why I am writing this for and telling the whole world? Well, I just want you to know if your family is close and your friends are there for you then please respect that and make sure you tell them THANK YOU! Now my thoughts…
If your mom and/or dad gets in the floor to play with your kids their grandkids, then take a moment and say THANK YOU!
If your mom and/or dad is there to help you while your whole family is sick and does it with a caring heart, then take a moment and say THANK YOU!
If your mom and/or dad is there cheering on your kids their grandkids while they are having a good time playing with their toys, then take a moment and say THANK YOU!
If your mom and/or dad is there to take your kids their grandkids out for an outing or even a day to give you a break, then take a moment and say THANK YOU!
If your mom and/or dad is there to talk to you and give you advice or just a casual talk and say they love you, then take a moment and say THANK YOU!
These are the things I have thought about A LOT, that I know I will be there for my girls in their every waking hour. In my opinion, I just think that is what family is all about and SHOULD BE ABOUT. It's family HELLO, what happened to the basics.
Even though, I cry and wonder what happened to my family basics, there is one thing I can make sure of. Is my family that I have created with my husband and our 3 daughters to make sure we do keep the family basics in line and show our daughters that we will be there always and forever for them and SHOW them on a daily basis of what family's SHOULD BE.
(((HUG))) you babies tight today. Much LOVE!!!

Jen, I’m sorry I misread your post a bit…I’m sorry things aren’t going well with your family. I hope you can get into a nice warm, caring, and respectful home soon…for your girls sake, but also your own. I wish we lived near each other…I’d be that family for you.
I hope things work out for you and your family soon. It must be such a hard position to be in. Sending prayers your way.
Oh Jen. I’m sorry too as I went back and reread your post I realized what a difficulat time you are going through. Remember you have people/friends online who love you like family including me. (((HUGS))) to you my dear friend.
Jen, I know exactly what you’re saying. I’ve always believed family should be that way, but I’ve never yet experienced it. I’m determined not to let that happen to my children. I WILL be there when they need that extra hand, just because I love them and it’s the right way to be. I hope things turn around soon and get on a good track for you, your husband and your girls.
Always tell your children how proud of them you are. Glad that the flu has past.
Jen, I’m so sorry you guys were so sick. I didn’t know because I’ve been so MIA with blogging until this Ultimate Party stuff started back up. I truly am sorry and I’m sorry I wasn’t around to know to pray for you. But I am thankful you all got through. The flu is scary!!! Love ya.
