Thanks and Blessings, Week 4
This post is totally late. I had planned to post the last of the Thanks and Blessings on, of all days, Thanksgiving. However, this last week has been a struggle for us.
Danny has been sick with strep throat for a week. Sunday was his first day of almost back to “normal”.
Grace has has been sick all week too, running a fever. The night before Thanksgiving she was very feverish all night and then woke up Thanksgiving morning with a rash all over her torso and neck. The little rascal has also had a bear of an attitude. But so have we, so what can we expect of her?
There have been many moments this week where we haven’t been thankful and have been rather stressed or grumpy and in asking Grace for what she is thankful for she just didn’t want to do it anymore. She said she didn’t have anything to be thankful for this week. I didn’t want to push it and have it end up being a chore or something that made her angry instead.
So we will still try to focus on being thankful, especially at this time of year, but we won’t finish out our Thanks and Blessings for the entire month. We do have three days though:
Friday, November 21
“I’m thankful for my tooth falling out!”
Saturday, November 22
“I am thankful for Bob and May because I love them!”
Sunday, November 23
“I am thankful for boley” (her blanket)
I know this post is a bit of a downer, but life is like that sometimes! We have off times when we struggle and I would say that’s what we are doing:) And today we are all feeling better and we have had a good day!
Thanks and Blessings, Week 3
