Today I am thankful that a day of rest seems to have helped our boy recover from his sheer exhaustion over the weekend. I hate seeing our kids not feeling good, and I was pretty scared when I couldn't wake him yesterday.
Today I am thankful that laundry got done. You know, those five minutes before the hampers get filled up again.
Today I am thankful for the opportunity to do a little bit of covert Christmas shopping.
Today I am thankful the great community at our kids' school - for the opportunities they've been given and the support they receive. I am thankful for our newest tradition of family brunch on parent-teacher conferences. I am thankful for our kids' friends who invite them to such fun birthday parties.
Today I am thankful for the chance to reconnect with an old friend - you know the kind - where you don't see each other for years and it's like no time passed at all.
