as I sit here tonight going over the day and just in general feeling kinda blah, I start thinking of all the urgent prayer requests that I know of and am praying for and once again I am stricken with how grateful I should be. We truly are extremely blessed. Even in the midst of teething I can be thankful for that child, thankful that they are home and not sick or in the hospital, thankful for the older child that can hold the fussy baby to give me a break. Even in the midst of OH NO I forgot baths, I can appreciate the fact that we have a bathtub and runnning water and a water heater! and that we can rush through getting clean in the morning. Even though Honey isn't home quite as much bc of school I can be thankful that when he is home he helps! Thankful that he will change diapers, give baths, feed bottles, kiss booboos, do the dishes, take out the trash, start the vaporizer and whatever else needs doing. Even though Cayden needs glasses and a patch, I can be thankful that he can see, thankful that his eye is getting corrected WITHOUT surgery! I can be thankful that although we are behind in school we can catchup at our own pace, we can choose to do 2 months of history reading in one morn, Kirsten got 2 months of handwriting done today, she was so excited to be all caught up in that subject. and although I sit here absolutely exhausted I am thankful for the peace and quiet to type in. :)
