Thankful Thursday - 10/29

My 5 things this week:

1. I'm thankful that my oldest daughter is better and at school this week. We got to spend 5 days of quality time together when she was out of school sick last week.

2. I'm thankful that now I get to spend lots of quality time with my younger daughter, as she is home sick this week. (!) Oh yes, she is. Her fever was 103.8 and I am so thankful that she is feeling better and her fever is now more managable.

3. Thankful for friends who have been helping me out by doing little ins and outs for me while I'm stuck at home (like picking up a supply my oldest needed at school, or delivering a meal to me).

4. I'm thankful that I'm going out to dinner with a girlfriend tonight. I need a night out, and it will be fun to eat & be merry. I'm thankful that my husband is going to stay with the kids and let me step out for a couple of hours.

5. I'm thankful that we get our puppy on Saturday. The girls CANNOT wait!

Oh, Kelly what a wonderful attitude you have! Not sure I'd see sickness as quality time spent with my children.

Hooray for your puppy. I CAN'T WAIT to see pictures of your new bundle of fur. Get ready for a wild ride!

Thanks for making my heart smile.

Praying all are well quickly! It's important that even in the midst of the storms you are able to find and see the God in things.

Love you!

When this is all over I am going to take a "Me" day. I think I really deserve it. I think my wife is starting to get sick now. :(

Also thankful for healing in this house of flu symptoms. I'm on the mend. :O)

I am thankful that God is still on His throne!

I would be excited about that puppy too! Maybe I will have to pay a visit. :)

Hope you're feeling better.

Hope everyone is feeling better.
Also hope all went well on Annie's first few days (and nights) at her new home.

Going to the dentist. Hopefully I'll be thankful for no cavities!
