I wear many hats in any given day. There’s the mom hat of course and today that involved holding my baby girl with her 100+ temperature. Still sick. I thought she might be getting better yesterday but today after refusing breakfast she went to bed from 10 until 2:30 and then laid down again just after 3 and didn’t get up until about 5pm. She was miserable. I was ready to take her back to emerg after dinner when out of the blue she perked up a bit and actually ate some dinner. (All she has eaten in the last 3 days is a little toast, some rice and milk). It was probably the cuddles with daddy that made things all better. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
|Ella even had enough energy after dinner to practice a little piano. And since Jakob doesn’t like having his picture taken this was the best I could do.|
Another hat I wear is that of Worship Coordinator at our church. Today, I finished up the readings for Advent or at least the first drafts and I am so excited. We are re-instituting the Advent wreath this year after a little hiatus. When we didn’t do it last year I was somewhat appalled and insisted that it is a vital part of the church year and adds to the corporate worship experience during the Advent season. I couldn’t find readings that suited our congregation however. You see we are evangelical, non denominational and a little scared of things like “liturgy”, so I needed readings that communicated the message of Advent and had sound theology while resonating with each generation of our congregation. I’d like to share the readings with you but am unsure how to publish them at this time, so stay tuned.
And yet another hat I wear is that of an Advocate. I wish sometimes that I had the gumption of others who do a much better job at advocating than I. One of those people is Krista Flint. She is the former Executive Director of the Canadian Down Syndrome Society and she has a new blog. I strongly recommend you check it out. She believes in change, equality and inclusive humanity.
