Poor ds is truly not well. He is totally worn out just walking upstairs to his bedroom. He had to sit down and catch his breath for at least 15 minutes after doing that. After having a shower he was totally exhausted. Whenever he coughs he is just drained. I haven't seen him so sick for years.
I am writing this on Tuesday night, and am planning on going to work on Wednesday as I am scheduled to work all week. However if ds isn't well I will be staying at home, as he comes first of course. Its awful to see a grown man being totally worn out by climbing a flight of stairs, that's for sure.
"Amish Values for Your Family," by Suzanne Woods Fisher
When it comes to strong families that know how to truly enjoy life together, there is much we can learn from the Amish. Just how do they establish such strong family bonds, such deeply held values, and such wonderful family traditions? In Amish Values for Your Family, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher shares the secrets of Amish family life. In this inspiring and practical book, you will meet real Amish families that are a lot like yours. Through their stories you'll discover how to:
safeguard family time
raise children who stand strong in their faith
prioritize what's truly important
Amish values like community, forgiveness, simple living, obedience, and more can be your family legacy--without selling your car or changing your wardrobe.
I think the one thing I learned from this book is how even the simple things bring pleasure to the Amish. How they don't hold grudges and offer forgiveness for everything, all because they have full faith and trust in God and he will look out for you.
This book would be an ideal book for anyone just starting out in their married life or with a young family. As it shows how you don't have to spend mountains of money to make memories for your children that they will never forget.
The book talks about a television programme called "Amish in the City," that was broadcast on CBS in 2004. I never saw that show did any of you see it?
Stars out of 5: probably 4, more of a reference book than anything else, still interesting though.
