I Love My Village

Our Gratitude Window

That old saying “It takes a Village” is so true when mom gets sick and I am grateful for the village surrounding me!  Between the phone calls, offers to pick things up, shopping for me, driving my kids around, watching them so I could go to the doctors, text messages, flowers…..I am one lucky girl.

This “virus” left me feverish and weak for over a week and a half.  I am just starting to feel like myself again…it was brutal.  I am thankful for the village but mostly I am thankful for kids.  My kids who went with the punches, entertained themselves, went without bedtime books and snuggles….my kids are AWESOME!

somebody turned 4 1/2 while I was sick

I am happy to be on the mend and want to thank all those who helped us out.  We are truly grateful for each and every one of you!

I read 5 books and built a webpage while sick

    LOL I have that same picture of my lil C when she got her chin stitched–dazed look, hospital johnnie, popsicle in hand–cute! Glad you are on the mend!
