I am grateful...

Been dealing with sick children all week. Strep throat. I am thankful that we were able to get in to the doctor when we needed to, and get the medicines to heal their little bodies!

I am thankful for all the blessings in my life. I forgot to post the other days, and will do better now that my children are on the mend :-)

Today, I am thankful for modern medicine. I picked up Andrew early from school because he had a fever and sore throat. He is sick (poor little guy). His body was achy, he had chills, sore throat, and headache. Ibuprofen to the rescue! Within an hour he was more comfortable, and was able to nap, and get the rest he needed.

I am thankful everyday for medicines that help heal our bodies, and provide comfort when we need it!

Today, I am grateful for rain. Why, you might ask? Well, purely selfishly, it is raining here in Anaheim, and the parks are less crowded! We have been able to go on so many rides more quickly because the parks are "empty-ish".

I am also thankful for rain, because it helps things to grow, especially foods that we all eat. It renews the earth, and keeps the circle of life going!

I also love the rain, because of the sound it makes on my home, car, etc. The smell the rain leaves is wonderful. And, the coolness that comes with the rain is refreshing. There is also nothing better than curling up in a blanket, with a good book, with the dark clouds, and rain outside. It is so comforting!

I am thankful for my childrens' friends. What a blessing they are to them! Andrew talks about his school buddies constantly, and even Sam has started talking about his pre-school friends. I hope to spend more time with them as they grow, and I want their friends to feel comfortable in our home.

We got to spend time with a little boy named Caleb, this weekend at Disneyland. The boys got a long swimmingly, and we will be seeing more of Caleb, and his family!

I love my kids good friends - new and old!

I am grateful for good friends! My friends Heidi and Danny invited my family to stay with them at the Grand Californian in Anaheim. Of course, we said yes, and enjoyed our time immensely!

Heidi and I met while doing musical theater. She kept me employed :-) and we became great friends! I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. We have spent time together, and shared happy times, and sad. She spoils my children. I learn from her all the time! I love her so much! With Heidi, came Danny, who is such a wonderful man, and friend!

Good friends are hard to come by, and I have found many whom I love dearly! Thank you to these two, especially!

I am thankful for stores that are close to my home. There are so many conveniences to being able to get things at the last minute, or exactly when I need them. This is truly a blessing!

Today is purely selfish...I am grateful for seat heater's in my Tahoe. It is a balmy 39-44' today. Mighty cold walking out to get in the car. I cleaned off the windows, turned on the car and windshield wipers, then the heater, and finally my seat warmer :-) So grateful for the technology that lets us use these conveniences.
