my heart is so full, yet sad at the same time. we found out today that Quinn has a pretty bad case of Strep Throat. he has had fevers off and on since Sunday night and complaining that he has to throw up. the doctor said that there is a strain of strep going around that is causing the high fevers and vomiting.
chuck is gone to care group and the boys have been in bed for over an hour. i was playing on Facebook when i heard a noise. since chuck isn’t home and no t.v.s are on, i ran upstairs to see if it was one of the boys. halfway up the steps, i realized it was quinn calling out for me.
i walked in their room half expecting him to be laying in vomit. instead, as i leaned over his bed, he said, “mom, i need you to pray for me” in the saddest little voice. my heart is full knowing that my three year old son understands that God can help us when we are sick and that prayer was his only request for himself. at the same time, it makes me sad to know that he feels so terrible and there is nothing that I can do for him. oh that my faith could be like his. that it would be my first thought to take it to the Lord….
