Dad is gone and Mom is still sick.

 

Dad is traveling for his business this week.  Mom is still not feeling well after two weeks of being sick and Dad even seems concerned.  Before he left on his trip he got us three kids all together and asked us to help Mom and be extra kind to each other.  Sometimes my brother and I fight with each other.  I guess it’s just what boys do, but it really gets on Mom’s nerves.   My sister Becky gets very upset when we’re going at it.  Maybe we need to begin acting as brothers and good friends and not as enemies.  After all, we really do like each other.  We promised Dad that we would be helpful to Mom while he’s traveling this week.  I wish he didn’t have to leave.  I miss him when he has to go out of town.  I guess I need to start really praying for Mom to get better.  I did two weeks ago but forgot to pray for her last week. When she is not feeling well our house does not run right.
