After the past week and a half, all I can say is Thank You God! Thank you that I didn't pull my hair out, b/c everyone, even me, was cranky beyond words. Thank you for OTC meds are available to treat colds, b/c Mike and a few of the little ones were sick. Thank you that Luke did NOT need stitches after falling off the dining room chair because he wanted to be at the table w/ everyone else. Thank you for our emergency fund b/c we had been in the doctor's office every week since the beginning of the year for one child or another, even if some visits were for nothing more than a well child checkups. Thank you for your forgiveness and love even when I lost my cool and said something I shouldn't have said. Thank you for my friends that pray for me daily, b/c I sure do need it. Thank you for two very responsible teenagers who will pick up my slack when I collapse in the bed all afternoon b/c I feel so bad. Thank you for a husband that works so hard to provide for our family even when he is sick. Thank you for our turtle Leo, even when his tank is such a pain to clean, b/c he brings so much joy to our children. Thank you for take-out, especially when I've spent an hour and half in the doctor's office with a sick little one and feel too bad to cook lunch. Thank you for so many clothes even when Mt. Washmore begins to appear to high to conquer, b/c it means we haven't had to go naked YET. And Thank you God for helping me to realize that THIS TOO SHALL PASS.
Love ya bunches!
