Silver Linings

This week (so far) has been full of silver linings for us.

All four of us are sick with hay fever. And poor Liam can't sleep thanks to the icky drainage and cough (which means Ryan and I aren't sleeping, either). Silver lining #1? The pediatrician managed to fit him in today and gave him a cough syrup and an antibiotic for an ear infection that we caught just in time.

The antibiotic prescribed for Liam cost almost $60 WITH insurance - yikes! Silver lining #2? The pediatrician gave me a manufacturer's rebate form that will cover most of the cost.

Ryan will not be able to worship with me and the kids Easter morning. Silver linings #3 and #4? My parents are going to keep us company while we watch Ryan play his bass in our church's Easter At The Park service. He's even been on TV in some commercials for it!

I will be a single parent to two children under five while being 8 months pregnant for an entire weekend in April. Silver lining #5? Ryan will be riding his bicycle 187 miles from Houston to Austin to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. If you'd like to donate, click here.

Had any silver lining moments in your life lately?
