Gratitude Day - Take 5

I totally forgot about gratitude day. I missed last week because it was my 100th blog day, so I had to do that. This week I'm very grateful for friends and family who have supported me and helped me. Whatever this virus is that I have is really kicking my butt. I have no energy and have a constant stomach and head ache. I've had some meals brought in and have had help with my kids. The kids have also been really good. They have been behaving so well, which is nice because I've needed to be able to relax and take it easy. DH has also been very helpful and supportive. I hope this goes away soon, I'm ready for my energy to come back and to feel like myself again. But, I truly am grateful for all the help that I've had. I've really needed it this week!

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. "- Melody Beattie

That was a beautiful quote. I am sorry that you are so sick. I hope you get better soon.

Ohh, I am so sorry you are sick. There is nothing worse than being a sick mom. Hang in there! :)

You didn't eat any bagged spinach did you? I haven't been here in a few days and I missed all of the excitement!
