Things I am Thankful for. . .
Okay so that's probably an obvious. . .
But, seriously, I am thankful for modern medicine--my arm is doing so much better. It's been four months since I broke it, and it is still not at 100%, but I can move it and use it almost fully. I can't do a total palm up and flat, but I think that will come with time.
I am thankful for Sudafed. This has been a strange spring. . .following a very strange winter!
I am thankful for tissues--with Zyrtec being pulled, I haven't found something that works for Aidan, yet, and so his nose has been running almost non-stop!
I am thankful for the opportunity to say to my son, "Stay out of the Living Room!!! You are NOT to play in there on Mommy's nice new chairs!! : )
I am thankful for those sneak-up-on-you naps that come out of Quiet Time:
I am thankful for Aidan's birth mother--right now it is a thankfulness that is even more pronounced. She gave me the ultimate gift--my son. I pray she knows she gave him a gift, too, that of a better life.
And, I am thankful for my husband. What a terrific man, human being, daddy, son, and husband! He gets grumpy (who doesn't) but he always is there and willing to listen to whatever is on my mind! I am so lucky to have him in my life!
Aidan's 4th birthday is tomorrow--can you believe it??? We have pretty much spoiled him, again! There are so many gifts waiting for him (hidden in the Living Room : ) ) We will head out to the Ice House at about 10:30 for the party. There will be somewhere between 15 and 18 little people and they will have pizza and sodas (caffeine free, of course) followed by cake. Then the children will go out on the ice for a 1/2 hour lesson followed by a little over an hour of free-skate.
Later in the day, Grandma and Grandpa will come over for a cookout: hamburgers, baked beans, deviled eggs, 3 bean salad all followed by chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles! MMmmmmmm!!!
When I try to imagine doing something completely different with my day, I come up completely blank.
I am so Thankful!
