day 12

i am so thankful for my in-laws. they are some of the most giving people i have met. they take amazing care of liam during the week and they do so many other things for us as well. as i am writing this, my FIL has been working in my backyard doing fall cleanup for the last 3 hours.

day 11

Since today was Friday, I feel like I could say something like thank goodness its Friday. Although it seems that Friday turned out to be one of the busiest and craziest days yet at work. So I guess it really was really more like thank goodness Friday is over. I can say thank goodness we were able to have dinner with friends.

Day 10

I am thankful for rest. It seems that this "fall back" has hit me pretty hard. I am so thankful for the moments where i can sit and read or go to bed early and get rest.

day 9

I am thankful for food on our table. I am thankful that we have the ability to eat the food we want and have the ability to buy good, clean food. I am thankful that we don't have to choose health over expense. God is gracious.

day 7

I am thankful for my husband, who when i ask him to go fill my car up with gas so i dont have to do it in the morning, he does so willingly...he is great!

Day #5

I am thankful for my job, though not where i would like to be every day, but i am there anyway. and there are great joys there most days, like today when i was able to help a student with autism after he had a meltdown in class. or when i could be there for the tears of another student who was feeling sad and ashamed because he wasn't doing as well as he wanted to be doing in school. or i could see a smile creep across the face of an older student, a place where smiles aren't often found. these are the small things that make me realize that even though i may not be home with my greatest joy, at least there are still positive things happening.
