J Summary (4Y) - Still Sick... A Very Special Day... In Its Own Way...



J has looked sooooo much forward to today. He is looking forward to see all his small guests. He has packed individually all the goody bags.

The day has arrived.

Today is J's 4th year old birthday.

The table is set... the food is prepared... the cake is bought... but there are no guests...

1. Daddy is on overseas course

2. Many of the children in his kindergarten have fallen ill

3. Many of the teachers in his kindergarten have fallen ill - Both teachers in his class, and thus, they could not bring the children here

4. J himself is still not fully well

5. His neighbour A (also from his kindergarten) is sick too

6. My mother-in-law is also down with flu

7. Three of his cousins are also sick

J was a little sad that it was only Mommy and him... and I wanted to cry... J cried, but in the midst of his tears, he was very brave.

But in the midst of all these, there are still so many things we can thank God for, for His blessings...

1. God gave us a super sunshine day...

2. Thank God that we can wake up, can go out, can see, can walk, can breathe the fresh air...

3. Thank God for good health, although J is sick and I am struggling with tiredness and I think I am also falling sick (help!), we are still overall healthy...

4. Thank God for special time between J and Mommy, it is so precious, as I didn't go to work...

5. Thank God for the peaceful environment in this part of the world...

6. Thank God that we can learn to handle disappointments and that J can learn to handle disappointments too...

7. We have food on our table - in fact, lots of food...

8. We read many books, one of which is a book about the importance of brushing teeth using adult toothpaste. And J is now happily and willingly brushing his teeth :-)

9. And there is one last silver lining - I don't have to host a party :-)

What a day! Thanks to the special present called The Flu Bug from his kindergarten!!! I am sure God has His purpose...

"In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

  1. I am so sorry to read that nobody attended J´s birthday. I am sure he will remember this day always. Not because nobody went but because he spent this special day with his mom that loves him so much.
