3 Beautiful, Heaven-sent Gifts...


Beautiful on the outside and also on the inside...
and these special gifts bring joy to those around them...
especially to my husband and I!

Thank you Lord, for blessing us with our 3 children.

~~~~~~~~~~

Our son, Heartbreaker, is in the most diligent and caring hands right now.  Both his sisters are standing by him as "Nurse Nightingales".  Over the weekend, he had temp around 102, the girls brought him to the University's clinic and the doctor has him on some medicines and staying home from classes for about a week...from the flu.


(unidentified British nurses, 1899)

His sisters have been taking his temperature about every hour and jotting it down, making sure he's taking his meds and plenty of fluids.  Thankfully, this year, heartbreaker is renting with them in their duplex, so what a blessing to know that they are all together.  For now, he is in one half til this junky flu is done.  and there's plenty of lysol spray & hand sanitizer.  And plenty of handwashing all around!

Monday, Girly Whirly stayed home from her afternoon clinic/classes (she didnt have any morning sessions) and so she stood a watch.  About 3 this morning, Girly Twirly took Heartbreaker's temp and it was down to 98.0 (His and Girly Whirly's normal temps run about 97, which is lower than the average 98.6.). It's been at about 98.5 to 99.5 today.

Thanking the Lord for His healing touch.  Thankful for blessing us with loving, caring children!

We have so many photo of the 3 of them together, but here is a clip of some of the photos I have been able to find.
The 3 little monkeys, 3 amigos, aka 3 musketeers, aka Wynken, Blynken, and Nod, aka the terrific trio :o)

~~~~~~~~~~
...Once upon a time...they were itty bitty...







Here is another clip... when they are older.
...more to love and with more love to give...



We are thankful and blessed that Heartbreaker is healed of cancer...
and thankful and believing for a speedy recovery from this flu!

Thank you for stopping in...
I do so appreciate your time and comments.

Blessings & Aloha!


(I do have more newly completed drawings to share

When I first started my blog, I thought I had to reply in my own comments, in order to reply to those that had left me comments :o)

Well, I havent done that in quite awhile, when I realized (like myself) I dont necessarily come back to a blogger's post to see a reply. And so I do try to reply directly on to the commentor's own post or email.

But, I thought I would leave a comment here, this time :o)

Girly Twirly-this was such a fun post to do! I love looking at all of you kids in the old photos!

& fellow blog friends...Thank you all for your sweet comments :o)

We are so blessed! We constantly lift up thanks and praise for the healing in Heartbreaker and for the hand of God manifested in health, joy, love, in all of our children's lives. Praise God for His goodness and mercies. Heartbreaker is a strong witness and a blessing to other children who have faced similar challenges.

Blessings!!

Such a blessing to have wonderful children who love and take care of each other! You've done well as a mother.
I hope your son gets over the flu soon! It's hard to have them away when they're sick. Once a mother, always a mother, no matter how old they are!
Take care and have a wonderful day!
