Sweet Victoria has been sick this week, despite all the essential oils we’ve been anointing ourselves with and despite the vitamins and cod liver oil we’ve been taking daily for months.
But I imagine it could’ve been much, much worse without those preventative methods. She’s always been our sickly one. She’s been tested and has no allergies. She did wean herself at eight months and there was no convincing her to drink breast milk or formula from that point. But I digress.
This morning, I asked her if she wanted a cup of tea to help make her throat feel better.
A special cup.
Tori calls it her “cup of Jesus.”
She sipped her tea in her special Jesus cup while I read from our Advent devotionals.
All day long, we prayed for her to feel better and while she sounds hoarse and is still sniffly, she claims she does indeed feel better.
I anointed her at bedtime with Thieves essential oil and she prayed that we would all be healthy.
She’s my sweetest one.
