Sickness and Compassion

So, I got the nasty sickness from Jason on Tuesday. I was feeling foul all day, then all of a sudden (while sitting in my director's chair at work, teaching from a chair) I got super hot and decided I may need to go to the bathroom and hurl.

And hurl I did. And continued to do. In the OB waiting room for my check up, at home, in Emma's bathroom, and in bed that night. Puking at six months pregnant sucks. So does shivering from fever.

A day of "rest," six loads of laundy later, and six pounds down, and I'm back to work.

Moving on, the other day our assistant principal sent this video out to the staff. It really got to me. I normally don't watch videos or things like this, but it's short and it's from Chick Fil A. It really reminded me to think about other people and how "Every Life has a Story."

Not gonna lie, I was crying. It's not pregnancy hormones either. Watch it and maybe next time someone acts a fool, you can dig up some compassion for their "story."

Love ya all!


  1. Sounds like you need more rest! SIX months pregnant?!?! Congrats!!!! Where have I been?? I'm going to have to read on to find out the details! Okay the video, Oh. Emm. G! The two that got me were the one with the mom that died during childbirth and the dad blames her and the lady that lost her husband a month before and it would be their 50th. That was a good video thanks for sharing!

  2. I love that video! very sweet. Are you feeling well yet? I hope so! What did your doc say? Shauna got a virus when she was like 8 mos pregnant and had to go to the hospital for IV!

  3. I am sooooooo sorry you were sick and even sorrier that I didn't know it! Hope you are better? What did OB say?
    Thanks for sharing the video - it was super powerful!! ♥

  4. I'm so sorry you were sick! That sounds terrible. Hope you are feeling much much better. I want to see some belly pics!

  5. Ugh. It's the worst. My MWs told me that getting sick at any time during pregnancy will trigger vomiting. After December, when it happened to me, I glare at anyone so much as sneezing!

    Hang in there, sweet friend!

  6. OMG that video was so moving! (I shared it on facebook) I have tears in my eye! Hope you are feeling much better! I agree with Andrea, more belly pics please!

  7. Im not gonna watch that video cause i cry at commercials! But that chick fil a comment made me hungry.. weagle.

  8. How have you been? Where have you been? I hope you are feeling much better by now!
