Back to the Future (the littlest bounces back to health!)

Today, we picked up the girls in Germany, where they spent their Spring school break.

I almost had to stay behind because of my stomach flu.  P assisted me with preparing myself, and did all he can to make the trip to and fro, as smooth as possible.

The littlest was very excited with the journey and most of all to be reunited with her sisters, whom she both adore.

I slept off the nausea I felt, and before I knew it we were already at the train station.  Shortly before we left home, P gave me tea to drink on the way, and while I was drinking it to calm my abdominal pains, I saw an opportunity for today's image while looking at the littlest from the viewing mirror.

As I mentioned last Tuesday in the post entitled, Health is Wealth (the littlest is not her Tiggery bouncy self), she was only the shadow of her self, that today was such a joy to see and hear her bouncing in her car seat.

Tomorrow, school begins again, and it will be 8 weeks until the next school break (Easter).

Positive quotes to affirm at the end of the day:

All the evidence that we have indicates that it is reasonable to assume in practically every human being…that there is an active will toward health, an impulse towards growth.
Abraham Maslow 

Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.
Lao Tzu  

I promise myself…to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind; to talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet; to make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them; to look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true; to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best; to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own; to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future; to wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet; to give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others; to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble; to think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds; to live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Christian D. Larson

May your weekend ends peacefully and begin wonderfully!
