Prayer Request Please...

It's been an extremely busy night at our house tonight. I've been a single parent with ALL the cooking, ALL the cleaning, ALL the homework, ALL the laundry, ALL the questions from the girls, and I am a bit tired about now and will be going to bed early. I know...stop whining and deal with it, huh? And I heard you....welcome to the real world, huh?

Truth be known....
My sweet Dirk is sick this evening. He started feeling bad last night. He did go to work today, but he came home feeling pretty rough. We think it's just a cold, but he has been in bed all evening. I can't hardly keep my thoughts together to even post what I wanted to post about. I know...I'm a real mess.

Please pray for him to feel better... like overnight.

Stella will be leaving us on Friday morning. My next post will let you know what I've added to her and where she's going.

I will be praying for him. Poor guy! And you too, because it is hard when you usually function as a team and one team member is down for a bit. Pray that you don't get it and for you to get rest too.

Mod Girl said...

Praying for sweet sleep for all of you tonight. You sound tired and stressed. Feel better soon, Dirk.

Carrie said...

I hope he gets to feeling better soon! I understand Johnny works 12 hour shifts from 7 at night to 7 in the morning it can get really lonely.

Liz said...

Oh no! Poor Dirk! I will pray that he feels better quickly and also that he doesn't pass it along to you or the girls.

I just wanted to tell you thank you for that absolutely uplifting comment you left. You really made me feel good. And I know that you aren't gay! :o)

Laura said...

Praying that Dirk gets better ASAP and that you and the beautiful girls dont catch whatever he may have! ((HUGS))Get some rest!

Alicia said...

I know, it's so hard when hubby gets sick! We don't realize how much they do until they can't do anything!! I had to laugh out loud though when you asked us to pray for him to get better overnight! Girl..I'm feelin' your stress!!

Praying that he gets better OVERNIGHT, and that you will be able to have rest! Even now..that you will have Gods rest in the midst of chaos!!

HUGS,
Alicia

Just hopped over from Rebekah's site.... I love the quote you have underneath your top banner! Blessings!

Edie said...

I will say a prayer for Dirk to get well. Hang in there Daphine. Get some rest.

Jennifer said...

There is so much crud going around. We're all trying to get over it around here too. Hang in there....being a "single parent" during these times can get a little rough. I just got done cleaning the kitchen and it's almost midnight. UGH! Hoping your hubby feels better real soon. Hope you get some rest too!

Kristin said...

I prayed for Dirk to get better and for God to give you peace about it. Hoping he's better soon. Just remember, it's okay to let things go for a few days! You don't want to wear yourself out and then end up getting sick too. Sorry, my mommy/protective mode kicked into gear there!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

We will pray for your sweet Dirk to get well very soon.
And sound trip for your daughter, too. :)

Jennifer Raack said...

Prays going up for him now! I pray he feels better in the morning!

Denise said...

I will be lifting Dirk up in my prayers sweetie.

linda said...

I'm so sorry to hear that it's been a tough night at your house. I hope your hubby gets to feeling better soon. He's probably got what I had...be prepared, mine lasted a while and I was in bed for 4 days.

April said...

Hey, sweet friend,

I am SO very sorry to hear that you had a rough night and that Dirk is sick. So many viruses are going around right now, it's easy to catch one! I can relate to how both of you feel. Chris has been gone since Monday, so I've had to do it all on my own. Some days run smoother than others, but it can be hard, at times. Then, I can certainly understand how Dirk's feeling as I just got over a terrible head cold myself. He needs to just take it easy for several days.

Please know that I'm praying for you both!!! You're in my thoughts!

Nicolle said...

Oh, Daphine, I feel for you! I am saying a prayer right now. Let us know how he is doing....and how you are too! I know you must be exhausted!

Sandy Toes said...

Hope he feels better soon!!! Take some vitamin "c" so you don't get it!

Praying today is a better day for you, and that Dirk is feeling much better! Also praying that you and the girls will be protected from whatever this illness is.

I sure will miss Stella! :o)

Heather said...

poor Dirk! i hope he starts feeling better right away. it's never fun when our hubby's get sick.

coco said...

Praying for Dirk's recovery...it seems everyone is having a tough time getting back into the swing of things this week. Hope he is better soon and things get back to normal!

Stacey said...

I do hope he gets better - for both of you. Colds are not fun for anyone in the house. Wash your hands!!

Michele said...

Daphine,
1st of all, don't feel guilty for venting, we have all been there. Being everything for everyone is a pretty tough thing to do! When you feel exhausted take 5 minutes to yourself and just breathe. My husband is a trust tax accountant and from now until April will be absent from home for the majority of the time and I really understand. I will pray for you and Dirk and your family. God is with you always!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Daphine, I've just prayed health for your husband and supernatural God-given strength for you! Thinking of you. Let us know how you all are.

XO,

Sheila :-)

I'm so sorry he's not well. Prayers being sent up...for both of you. :) xox Ang

Named Alicia said...

Praying for him and YOU my dear friend! I hope he feels better soon. I know exactly what it's like when hubby doesn't feel good :o)

Everyday Mom Designs said...

I hope he feels better soon, and I hope you don't catch whatever he has.

This is the exact reason why Kevin got out of the Navy. I was not going to be raising our children alone for 6-8 months at a time. I was pregnant alone, and that was bad enough.

michele said...

Praying for a good night sleep for everyone tonight. And I hope the rest of the family stays healthy!Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog! I appreciate them!!

Jennifer said...

Certainly hoping he is already on the mend....be easy with yourself. It doesn't ALL have to flow just as it does when there are two of feeling well! And - no kisses....you don't want to get sick yourself!

Melissa said...

aww, I said a prayer, but I hope it wasn't needed and that he's all better now!

Robin @ My Blessed Nest said...

I only just saw this post...so sorry to hear about your tough evening. Hope all is better now including Dirk! My prayers are with you! Hugs, Robin

Jennifer England said...

I am so sorry to hear Dirk is not feeling well. I hope he is better today than yesterday. I will pray for him tonight before I go to bed...and for you too. Gary is improving, but is still sick. He may be home part of next week too at this rate. I guess we need to cover both of our men in prayer for their health. Thanks for asking us to pray. Take care and keep everyone updated.

I hope your husband is feeling better real soon. Lots of rest will help, I am sure. I hope you get a good night's sleep too.
That Stella is having such a good time. You are a great hostest!
Looking at the "Dallas" pictures was a lot of fun! That was must see TV in the 80's!
Take care!
