Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful...

  • that Ashley smiled yesterday for the first time in 5 days. The flu has really kicked her butt, but I'm hoping the smiles indicate that she is feeling a little bit better

  • that even with the flu I am still able to function - tube feedings, fluid, nebulizer treatments, etc

  • that I am able to work from home and not have to use all my family sick leave the first month of the year

  • for hot chocolate and hot tea - very soothing on my sore throat

  • that Amy is able to get Ash to eat a little bit of dinner each night

  • Gatorade

  • that so far my boys have said their exams are not too difficult

  • that the sun is finally out - the first time in 5 days. I need some sun!

  • for a couple of great new TV shows - The Mentalist and Lie To Me. Since I had to give up CSI since Gil Grissom left, I needed something else to record and watch, and I love Simon Baker!

  • for pediatricians whose office is open seven days a week

  • for chicken soup - still my favorite cure for colds and flu
