Sweet Sister Spirit

With three of the four girls in this household feeling under the weather today, Anna voluntarily became our nurse. She was amazing, bringing us water, puke buckets, washcloths, Becky blankets, dolls, instruments, making cozy spots for us to lie down in, taking care of Ruthie and reading to her when Ruthie was starting to feel better but Mommy wasn't... You name it, she did it. Thank you, nurse Anna, for all the little ways you showed us love today and took care of us.

While I was making them some food this afternoon Anna told me "Mommy, I was a nurse today, but you are a nurse everyday. Mommies are always nurses." So true, Anna. That is my joy and privilege as your Mommy.

I'm so sorry that you have been sick! And not just a runny nose this time, huh? Did you all fever, too, or just have the upchucks? I feel grateful to Anna, too, because that's what I would have done if I could have been there. (But I was home with my two sickies-Sam has bronchitis and Nora needed one more day at home to get all better.)
Get well! Anna, you did such a good job taking care of everyone!

I'm so sorry you were all sick! I hope you're all feeling better already, and I'm sure that Miss Anna's good nursing helped. You are a mama nurse Miss Kates. You're amazing, and that's why your daughters are too!
