Of course, after the flu season comes and goes, there will be other things that I'll want to protect him from.... injury, heartbreak, teasing, feelings of failure, ridicule, disappointment, the list could go on and on. When I look into Tucker's eyes, I don't want him to have to endure any of these feelings that are part of growing up. As a parent, we do what we can to protect our little ones from what we're able to protect them from. The rest is up to God. We have to have faith that HE will protect them and HIS life lessons are part of his great plan for them and will help to make them into the individuals that HE designed.
I pray that God will protect Tucker, shelter him during this season of sickness, and give me the strength I need to put Tucker's health in HIS hands and the discernment to make wise decisions when it comes to my son.
After not being anywhere other than to the pediatrician's office and back, I had to get out of the house Saturday. Wes and I took Tucker for a drive around Shelbyville. (No, we didn't get out of the car!) Here's my Tucker Bug, all ready to go see the wonderful sights. (He slept the entire 2 hours!) Oh, and his feet look huge in this pic....he had on his puppy dog slippers! :)
