Today I am feeling very thankful. I am feeling thankful for many things, but mostly just thankful for our health. You may think this is a strange thing to be thankful for since my little girl has been dealing with a terrible sickness lately that has left us exhausted and frustrated to say the least. Yet I am still very thankful that she is doing better and getting healthier each day and that this, the ugly illness that it is, is all that we are battling. She will get better and go back to being her happy, sassy, allergic self. I am thankful this is the card we were dealt. There are many who deal with much more.

I am thankful for my Mom. She is my angel here on earth. While Tim was away and Addie was at her worst, my mom was here. She spent five nights straight snuggled with Addie in her little dollhouse bed, watching and waiting for any episodes to occur. And when they did, she was there...bucket in hand and a soothing voice for our scared little girl. So, I am thankful.

I am also thankful for our sweet, cuddly, allergic little boy. He is standing now in his crib, and since he has no fear, he believes he can fly. I found him on the floor in his room after a loud "thud" the other morning. He tried to fly. It did not work. He was not happy. So, I am thankful he did not break any bones. I am thankful I did not have to pack up my sick little girl and broken 10 month old to the car and head to a hospital only to explain to the medical staff that yes, my infant has already broken something and yes my daughter has Perstussis, so we might be exposing others to this dreadful illness, so...please hand us some masks. I am so thankful for that.

You do have so much to be thankful for. I am very thankful that I have the opportunity to share all your experiences with you - the good and the bad. I do treasure our times together!!!!
