Thankful Thursday, because yesterday was just a little upside down. Yesterday had been a long day of holding a child that didn't feel well. I am glad I have the opportunity to stay home, so I can. Madison is sick and she likes to be held, and for an instant I felt guilty. You see, I had a grand plan to clean house and get so much done yesterday. I changed my plans when my 8 year old looked at me and said, "Mommy, will you please lay with me and hold me, because I don't feel good." Um, yes - what else would I say. So, I lay in bed and watched cartoons and rubbed her back, because she likes that. I let her eat Cheez-its and drink Sprite all day. Today, I am thankful. Thankful for the chance to be at home when my girls need me. Thankful for a husband who allows that, and doesn't expect a full course meal when he gets home on days like this. He even helps with supper and clean up, even though I have been home all day. I am thankful for my girls and the joy each one of them adds to our family. I am thankful to have family close, who will take the well ones to school (thanks Grandma). Yes, thankful Thursday indeed.
