Dear Stomach Flu.....

I realize that you think you're hot stuff by lurking in this house for days on end and infecting my children one by one. It was really rude to make Dan hold the bucket for Nathan...on Father's Day no less! But, I've got your number! I'm armed with more Lysol and anti bacterial soap than you can handle. You will NOT rule this house! After all, I have a sign that says "No Soliciting" on my door! Move along now!

Sincerely,

The Widener Family who has had ENOUGH!

Nancy, hi, ! so good to hear from you. As for your post - Oh no ! Not again ! But in the spirit of Mother Teresa...

Be happy ANYway :) !

More on this idea is at the link below - the first one that appeared in my search result list; it appears in many other sites, too.

As a p.s. to that work, we can say...

All is not pleasant - be happy anyway :) !

Far easier said than done? Maybe not... not with our Lord at our side, and not with Mother Teresa's influence and/or intercession...

I'll wrap you and yours up in prayer, too.

Nancy, Sorry to hear the flu bug has taken over but it doesn't sound like it'll be there for long. Prayers are on the way. I said a prayer for you and your family while at St. Peter's. I was not able to light a candle for you as I had hoped. They do not keep candles readily available in St. Peter's as they do in other churches. We did not realize we had to buy one outside in one of the Vatican shops prior to entering the church. The security there is insane in order to keep the church safe. Just like going through the airports! Who would have guessed! Certainly not me and not even my Italian girlfriend who planned to do the same thing for her friends and learned of this new rule. I pray the prayers I said were enough.

Hope everyone is feeling much better by now. My husband would be holding the bucket also.
Either that or clean up after me too.
Get well soon all.

oh Nancy,

The stomach flu is the worst intruder.

Prayers for a quick recovery.
