Joy amongst Sickness

Last night was rough. I’m the type of person that has my phone somewhere around me most of the time but it’s always on silent. The phone is either in my bag, on the counter, on the desk…. rarely in my pocket or even in my hand. It’s somewhere in my surrounding. Like right now I’m sitting at my desk at the office and my phone is on the desk beside mine (on the complete other side of the room).

I’ve been very much under the weather this week. I caught some sort of flu and the weather has been gloomy so that hasn’t been helping. And I’m also stressed.

After evening prayer I decided to call my oldest sister and we talked for a bit. I got to see two of my nieces as well which was great. While talking I was painting, it was very relaxing. My phone died and so the conversation ended quite abruptly. I went straight to bed because I had a really bad headache, sore throat and a difficulty swallowing. I slept for a bit and when I woke up I noticed I don’t have any clean clothes for tomorrow!!  So I did a bit of laundry. 

Since the laundry room is right underneath Bishop’s room I only had time to wash but not dry. The dryer is loud so I try to not make it run too late. After that I went to the t.v. room and noticed that bishop was watching the hockey. Pens won! Go Pens Go! Sid is such a babe.

I was still not feeling good so I went to my room. I almost always turn off my phone before going to bed because when I sleep, I sleep. But this time, I looked at my phone and I noticed I had 2 text messages and 2 missed calls and 1 voice mail. Something was up… My first thought was Oh no something is up with Mathieu. Here’s where you can read about Mathieu.

First thing I did was check the text messages and BAM! I’m a new aunt!!! Then it it me, I’m going to be a Godmother!! Mathieu was born last night at 7:39 and weighs 4 lbs 4 oz, not bad for a fighter. I just couldn’t stop smiling even though I felt like crap inside.

He seems to be healthy which is a great miracle in itself, praise God! Mommy is doing swell as well.

This weekend I will be heading to the city to meet my little boy. I can’t wait to hold him in my arms, to smell him, to be able to spend time with him. Then it dawned on my, if I’m sick I won’t be able to do either of those things. I don’t want to give him whatever sickness I have. But I’ll give it time, it’s in God’s hands. Be patient and enjoy the moment, stop worrying about the future.

Mathieu je t’aime beaucoup et j’ai bien hâte de te voir,

Fière matante Celine ❤
