Thankful Thursday.

Here I sit, 2:20 in the afternoon. Chili for an upcoming meal exchange with friends simmering on the stove. Waiting for the school bus to pull up with H and then the madness of our after school thing begin. Buses and piano lessons and homework and oh yeah, the writing stuff I was going to get done while E was at school and didn't.

E's sick today. She's actually been fighting something all week with an on/off fever, headache, tummy ache and that whole cold thing. We visited the doctor today and he put her on antibiotics for a sinus infection. Hopefully those kick in and last the night because we could really use a full nights sleep around here.

I'd hoped to be really on the ball this week and have my Thankful Thursday ready before this afternoon, but it wasn't happening.

Here's what I'm thankful for this week:

1. Health. Yes, E's sick BUT today at the doctor we have a few little celebrations. For starters, my girl weighs 28 pounds. Anyone who has followed her ear/weight/allergy story knows this is a reason to celebrate. Her pediatrician said that it wasn't so long ago he was thinking we needed dietary supplements {and a few McD's hamburgers} to get her growing. While she's still a peanut, she's a healthy one.

Also, on that same vein, we celebrated today because this was the first time IN A YEAR that he wrote her a prescription. Again, for a girl who used to live more time on antibiotics than off, this is huge.

I'm thankful for health.

2. Hearts at Home. I went to a Christian mom's conference this past weekend in Rochester. I didn't know what to expect and given the busy month of October didn't really even think much about it going into it.

I loved it. I took so much out of it and loved the time with friends, two of whom came up from Chicago and one that it was just nice to reconnect with.

3. Community. Yesterday was a little bit of a crazy day around here. I was having a low key afternoon with E when I got phone calls and emails from school about a lockdown, within minutes I was on the phone with my editor {and several others who started calling!} and got the scoop and also the assignment to get the story up. It was a little intense.

But I have to say, I am so glad that I send my kids to a school district where officials think quickly and keep our kids safe. Not once was I worried about my kids at school, I knew that they were safe and that as soon as officials deemed it appropriate, they'd be home. That doesn't mean it wasn't nervewracking.

For the first time in our eight years in this school district I had a rocky start this fall and was really questioning a few different ideas/opinions/policies. All that aside, the way yesterday was taken care of by the school reconfirms the thoughts I have that this is a school district that is putting our kids first.

On another note, I especially loved that H walked off the bus oblivious to the fact that there was a lockdown and situation, he just thought he had an "extended" school day. {T & M, on the other hand, well, let's just say they had wild imaginative stories of what had gone on.}

What is it you're thankful for this week? today? this minute?

When we really think about it, we have a lot to be thankful for, don't we? Share in the comments or your own post and come back and share your link in the comments. {Once again, no linky, maybe someday!}
