Thankful Thursday

Today, this first day of 2009, I am thankful...

  • that 2008 came and went without Ashley spending even one night in a hospital! That's huge!

  • that Lisa, Ashley's birthmother, and I are communicating pretty regularly, and hopefully will meet sometime this year

  • That I finally found the exact kind of mortar and pestle I need for crushing Ashley's medicine

  • that I have been able to keep my job during all the state budget cuts and layoffs

  • that the Christmas cookies are finally all gone

  • that Ashley's latest MRI revealed no further growth of her brain tumors

  • that my baby boy, Chip, is growing up and becoming quite the responsible adult

  • that Rocky has finally settled into life with our family and his separation anxiety has subsided

  • for all the time I got to spend with my family this Christmas break. I haven't ever been able to take 2 weeks off from work - until this year, that is.

  • for the huge smile on Ashley's face as she hand fed a zebra at the zoo (and thanks to Amy for the great Zebra picture!)
