Tonight I am feeling some la la love for the big daddy who has taken such good care of all of us. The delicious meals he's been making us is seriously crazy.
He is also the one who reminded us to focus on what we are grateful for as we start dinner. It's a simple exercise and lovely to hear what the children have to say.
After this past month and needing to plan and cancel and be flexible it's good to remember that there's always gratitude to be found some where.
The "sickness" visitor was un-invited, un-welcome, and un-friendly and showed up February first and has run free in our household for ONE MONTH. Today, I officially kicked him out.
I'm done with his sneaky double fevers and energy drains. Lulling th adults into thinking they would make it through healthy only to whop this mama with a 105 degree fever and a lovely trip to the ER.
He's gone now. I declare it. And, I got out the sage wand to prove to him I mean business.
I'm feeling blessed to have four healthy children two of which returned back to school today. The baby is smiley and we are all feeling, if not a bit road weary, much happier to be moving away from February.
Sorry February it may not be all your fault.
I feel grateful to two dear friends one of whom took time from her family to care for ours while we made said trip to the ER, and the second friend who made a scrumptious meal that was devoured "to the very last crumb." My dear knitting buddies. Just don't know how I got so lucky to have them in my life.?.
Another sweet friend brought homemade chicken noodle soup at just the right time and knitting inspiration. Grateful and grateful.
March begins tomorrow, WAHOOOO!!!
Spring is not here yet but I can feel it. We have small buds peeking out of the ground in the garden and yet many snow storms to go. But, to know that the buds are there is all that matters.
I'm grateful to all of you, good friends, who consistently check in even though my posting has been ummm, infrequent.
For this I am grateful.
