thankful day 14-18

Day 14- thankful for boys therapies, speech, physical and occupational therapies have helped my boys abundantly in many aspects of their life, its helped them become more confident more successful, its enabled me to help them as well and allowed me to watch them thrive. from getting Zach walking , helping micheal become more social , getting chance on a swing for the first time a year ago. day 15- thankful for our home health nurses, they allow me to rest, help me schedule Zach appointments, give medications, help me to keep Zach safe from illnesses and himself . just a few weeks ago i thought Zach had a seizure about midnight , his primary nurse drove over to listen to his lungs, check his vitals determined if we needed to go to the er or if we could stay home . she stayed with him thru the night so i could rest day 16-thankful for our mail system , as flawed as it may be, it allows me to send mail and packages to Harold overseas and allows the boys to share more with Harold than they could while he is gone otherwise . Day 17- thankful for music, sometimes it allows you to just escape even if for only a few moments. day 18- thankful for nail polish, its the closest you can get to a spa some days and sure can alter your mood, weather you want a rainbow of colors with glitter, or a shimmery pink, a bright yellow or a grassy green , i love playing with all the colors

day 9

im thankful today for lazy days, for days when there isnt any rush, no timeframes, for days when the tv can be watched, days when the dirty carpet can remain dirty, and days when laying under the cover after 7am is permitted and expected.

day 8 of being thankful

today im thankful for each of my sons, they have forever changed me each in their own way. Mikey made me a mom, he was my first, he is my helper, he works so hard and tries to do the right thing all the time. he views the world black and white and so alot of times things seem injustice to him.i love you mikey. Chance was my second, he taught me to slow down and he also showed me that he will always be persistant for his wants and needs, he isnt a child to sit and do without, he is the squeaky wheel, always making himself heard. he is my overachiever, my rouh and roudy yet still shy and timid boy. Love you Chance. Zach is my last baby, even at 5 he is still my baby. Zach taught me gratitude, and how not to take things for granted. Zach instilled patience in me, something i still struggle with from time to time but would never have gottan what i do have without him, Zach has also shown me sheer determination , the power of prayer and that miracles happen. he has overcome some huge odds and still smiles daily. i love you Zach

day 7

im thankful today for being married to my best friend, i cant imagine life without him, he makes me feel like i can do anything, he supports me, helps me, loves me, lifts me up when im sad. i can sit next to him on the couch and be just as happy as going out on the town with him. i love that we can still talk for hours, after 12 years of marriage, after 3 boys, i love him more now than the day i said i do.
