 30 Days of Thankfulness; Day 20 {Thankful for cuddles and days at home}

Today: I am thankful for the mixed blessing that is sick kids.

Of course I do not want my little ones to be unhealthy and uncomfortable. But sometimes sickness does slow us down, just as we need to be.

There are no fevers here, just a wheezing baby and a coughing, runny nosed K. I am thankful for soft tissues. I am thankful that our insurance company saw the wisdom in getting us our own nebulizer. We use that thing so often. It is very helpful in putting this mama's heart to rest when I am able to get medicine right into their wheezing lungs!

I missed being at church this morning, but I am so grateful for a ponytail, sweatpants, cuddle day.

I am grateful for my 2 year old's "Up mama, uhhhppp!" And the laying down of his head on my chest. Oh my, is that my favorite!!

Grateful for hours to spend editing and finishing up some clients photos. I hate making people wait, but the past couple of months have been so busy for our photography business.

And for that I am so grateful. 

I'm not sure specifically what I expected when Kristin, Hannah, and I started this creative adventure, but suffice it to say my expectations have been exceeded! Just knowing that people trust me to capture their moments and preserve their memories is an honor to me.

I'm so thankful for feeling more rested today than I have felt for a very long time.

I'm loving time with my boys. Laughing so hard with K, while putting animal puzzles together, that we are rolling around on the living room floor. His laugh... man, if you haven't heard it you have missed out on something beyond precious...

I am thankful that tonight's menu lists our favorite soft pretzel's and mozzarella sticks. It's going to be good!
