13 Blessings

January 28, 2010 by Rieshy
I'm tired, fuzzy brained and somewhat random. I wasn't going to do Thankful Thursday this week because it's been a long week- a week made longer by my 2 year old's stomach virus.

However, as I switched the coffee maker on I realized that listing my thanks for this week would be good exercise for my sleepy brain, and a great way to turn my personal dial away from the cranky setting- yes, I'm still analog.

I'm thankful:
  1. for fresh coffee
  2. for a dishwasher that is so quiet I can hear my family talk while it runs
  3. for disposable diapers (see above mentioned stomach virus)
  4. that my son is doing well, getting better and didn't require a hospitalization
  5. for the fact that no one else in the family seems to have gotten sick- I could tap dance on the roof over that! (if I could tap dance, and if I could actually get on my roof)
  6. for my new schedule- We were able to keep the house running smoothly even though I've been up all night checking blood sugars and temperatures on little ones since Monday
  7. for my husband- he's just generally wonderful, and works so hard- plus, I like the way he smells
  8. for raw corn starch (not as random as it looks- it's given as a preventative for hypoglycemia)
  9. for fresh milk from a friend's cow
  10. for my friends that brought us an enormous box of chocolate, I mean mongo-enormous.
  11. that my big kids are funny, helpful and interesting people
  12. that every time I come home from an errand my little ones treat me like I'm a returning hero
  13. to the blogger (I can't remember who or I'd put a link to her great post) who blogged about this passage: "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9

Thank You Father God that Susan's son is getting better and that she has a wonderful loving family, and a great dishwasher too. In Jesus' name, amen.

5. for the fact that no one else in the family seems to have gotten sick-

See, if I were to say something like that or even write about it - they would get sick the next day!

I have gotten superstitious about that these days. Crazy, but true! It toally happens!

I am happy for you.

Girl Next Door, I have a theory. If I say, "My child will never do that, act that way, watch that, eat that ....", anything that snottily assumes I am a superior and in-control-of-life parent then, wham. My child acts that way in the most public humiliating setting possible. Maybe that's superstition or maybe it really happens as just God's way of keeping me real.

But- I decided after our littlest was ill that I was not going to be afraid to celebrate- knowing full well that it can all be gone in a poof.
