I'll start off by giving you an update. On Sunday evening, just as I had finished planning out my school for the week and was about to hit the sack, I prayed, ..."The days ahead may be hard, but please help me to overcome them with Your help."  I didn't know why - or for what reason - I said that, but I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to. That night,I fell asleep but was startled awake around 12 midnight. My sister was not lying in her bed! Honestly, I don't know why I woke up. Maybe it was from the pain. Maybe it was because I heard them talking in low voices. I'm not sure. I saw the light flipped on in the hallway and my mom talking in quick voice, but I didn't know what was going on. Slowly, rubbing my eyes, I sat up. It was so late! As soon as I sat up, I felt a lurch in my stomach and I suddenly began burning up. I felt hot and sticky, then, my stomach felt gross and painful. There was no time to lose - I ran headlong into the den, asked my mom to pass a bowl, and threw up. I then found out that my sister had done the same - in the hallway however - and my mom was wiping it up. It was a fact: We had the stomach flu. I hate the flu. Who doesn't?! But I found if I turned my eyes off my problems, and put them on God, I felt much better. I spent the next few days taking it easy in bed, and all that night I continually threw up. It wasn't fun at all. Now, thankfully, I am feeling much better, but my Mom has the flu :( Please remember her in your prayers. 

This afternoon I decided to make cookies. Since we didn't have chocolate chips, that narrowed down my choice. So I settled on pumpkin, seeing we had some pumpkin puree in the refrigerator. They turned out great! I drizzled icing on top and - walla - they were delish. 

I'm curious..what have you all been up to these past days? Oh, and when you have time girls, please check out the Practacality 101 Question and please answer it when you get a chance :) Have a good week and try to stay flu free! :)
