The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

The “You’re Momma” moment:

A few weeks ago, I realized I was a mom (not in the literal sense…I have birthed six children…but rather in the figurative sense). Here’s the scenario:

I went around the house taking everyone’s temperature (not because this is a favorite pastime…they all felt warm to me). No temperatures. All were dubbed “relatively normal”. Then came the “You’re (as in “you are”) Momma” moment…I took my temperature and I had 100.5. This made me laugh (not the temperature, or maybe it was the temperature?). Silly momma, I know.

My older sister reminded me of the time when Mom took one of us to the doctor, and the doctor was concerned about Mom’s cough. It ended up that she had pneumonia and two of her ribs were broken! What a trooper! (My mom corrected out info. by telling me that she actually went to the hospital because she had been in pain for two weeks—but, she was occupied with taking care of a child that had pneumonia.) Do you have a “You’re Momma” moment to share? Please notice the important use of the apostrophe here (many don’t), and refrain from telling me any “your momma” jokes (I don’t find them very honoring). I’d love to hear from you. Also, let me know if you have discovered the secret of always knowing where to find your thermometer! LOL!

    Let’s see.. if I don’t have any, does that mean I’m not the mama? ha ha. Yesterday I went around cleaning everyone’s ears. Maybe that meant my ears needed cleaning.

    I used to chase thermometers all around until I assigned them a home. Have you gathered from my blog that I’m obsessively organized about stuff?? That doesn’t mean that it stays organized–we do have 5 kids and all.
