So remember how I was just talking about how I ooze with thankfulness every day? This was not so true of me 2 days before Thanksgiving Day. Hallie had been sick, then I was sick, then Ben was sick and I was sick of being in the house. Let's just say my attitude was not the best that day. I thought we were all on the mend, but that night Ben started coughing and almost spasming so much that he was having trouble breathing. He was crying and I was holding him with a heart squeezing with guilt before M took him to the E.R (with what turned out to be the flu and croup). Yeah... Somedays I do forget how precious our health is, and the enormous gift of having my children and being able to feed them and keep them warm and safe. Our Thanksgiving plans changed a bit, but Ben is doing much better. We all ended up with full tummies and overflowing hearts. Thank you for letting me indulge myself with the sappy outpouring and while I'm at it I'm also thankful for....my husband who is just straight up amazing, my family because they make crazy more fun, my supportive, encouraging, fabulous friends and always for my God who is always looking out for me.
