Ruby has been excruciatingly sick these past couple of days.
I mean fever in the 40's puking, 16 times in a 12 hour period, not sleeping, not eating, not doing anything but laying, taking tylenol, and drinking plenty of fluids (well whatever we could force her to drink).
Justin and I have been worried and last night was no different.
We were woken up around 3AM by Ruby's crying- nothing would calm her. She didn't want water, juice, gingerale, milk, tylenol, a mama nuggle or even her favorite- a dada nuggle. Nothing- we were out of ideas.
Until inspiration came to me- she must be hungry- maybe she wants a cracker- and surprisingly that is what calmed her.
I know it seems minor and not a big deal but all I can say is that it was at the time.
Call it what you may but I say-
YEAH for mother's intuition.
I think woman are amazing and we are blessed with many gifts- I am especially grateful for mother's intuition- I am grateful for MY mother and her intuition- she continues to amaze me.
I think I am finally getting the hang of it... even if it is only to know that Ruby may want a cracker!
Now I am not going to mention the millions of crumbs that are covering our bed... I just try to ignore them as I sleep...
I also want to mention that I am grateful for the priesthood which Justin holds- it too is an amazing gift for our family.
