I am thankful that we have electricity. A few of weeks ago our power went out because of high winds. It wasn’t out all that long- only about eight hours. But, it reminded me that we take so much for granted. There were several times that I flipped light switches, expecting a light to come on. At one point I thought, “Oh, I’ll go do some laundry since the internet isn’t working.” And then I remembered the washer and dryer wouldn’t be working either. Anyhoo- it made me realize that I take a lot of that kind of stuff for granted. We had very high winds again yesterday and even though the lights flickered and the internet didn’t work for most of the morning (gasp!) the power stayed on. For that I am thankful!
I am thankful for the nice time we had last weekend while we took a little trip “home” and stayed at my parents house. As always we had a blast. We were also able to spend some time with some of Rich’s family and had a very nice time with them too. We love being “home” and if we could we would just pack up and move back “home” tomorrow. We don’t like it where we live and we hate being away from our families….. ooops this is supposed to be a thankful list. So, I am thankful for the nice visit we had and I will continue hoping for the day when we can move back ”home.”
I am thankful for the nice distraction it was to be away visiting family. So many days I just worry about what is going on with Hailey (you can read about my concerns here, here and here) and feeling worried all of the time can get pretty overwhelming. So, it was very nice to have some distraction from all of the worrying I am usually doing.
I am thankful for all of the kind comments and emails I have been getting regarding Hailey. It means so much to me to know you all really care about what is going on. I don’t have any new information yet as the pediatrician still hasn’t heard back from the neurologist. I will post any new information as soon as I have it. Thanks again for your comments, emails and prayers!
