Hell. That’s how I would describe these last couple of weeks. Both of my toddlers caught a horrendous cold, probably flu but definitely not COVID, from some of the playgroups we have gone to. To make things worse, my husband and I have also caught it and for those of you who are parents, having children and being sick yourself does not mix.
Unfortunately I needed a short hospital visit and this has now moved to a double lung infection! In another twist of cruel fate, we’ve had car trouble and other wider family dramas that needed attention too.
Honestly, at times it has felt a little too much. This got me thinking, what helps the most in these situations? Is it friends and family helping out? A kind word? A prayer?
I remembered when I was nearing the end of my first pregnancy that I put quotes and reminders on post its on any surface in the house as a constant reminder to be positive, remember certain breathing techniques etc. to keep me calm and I figured I would try the same in this situation.
So, in this post you will find a collection of some of the quotes I have lived by these past couple of weeks.
Let me know which of these quotes you find comforting, or perhaps your own springs to mind!
