Thankful Friday

Good morning.  I know I typically do a Thankful Thursday post, but I have missed two weeks in a row.  Last week was Thanksgiving and yesterday I lacked so much sleep that I didn't even remember it was Thursday.

I thought I would just write one next week, however last night, when I was standing in a 5+ hour line to give my sympathies to a family who lost someone they love too soon, I knew I needed to remind myself of what I am thankful for today.

-Today, and everyday, I am thankful for my little family.

Due to this week's events, we have been doing a lot of extra family hugs.  

-I am thankful for Ina's health.  She is better, but still sleeping a lot.  I am also thankful that whatever bug she had, hasn't made me sick.  Yet.  Knocking on wood.

-I am thankful for Dan's mom and stepdad- who have Ina for the next 2 nights!  This was a trip that was planned before she was sick, so that I could bang out all of my Christmas crafts in one weekend. They called last night to tell me she was doing wonderful and I haven't heard anything since.  I am hoping that no news is good news.  On that note, it is so weird to be at home and not have her here.  I can do anything I want, making as much noise as I want.  Crazy.  So far I have slept and wrote my blog.  

-I am thankful for my aunt, cousins, mom, and grandma who helped "Bossy Racheal" with Ina's first birthday party.  What can I say?  It takes a certain form of crazy to make sure the caterpillar balloons were in the exact right position.

-Speaking of Ina's birthday, I admit I was a little frazzled that day.  What I really wish I would have done is stopped for a minute or two to think about how many amazing people we have in our lives, who Ina now has in her life.  

A few conditional thankfuls: 

-I am thankful for the cold (but only when I am inside).

-I am thankful for Christmas decorations (but only when they are already up and only when the lights actually work).

-I am thankful for my phone (but only when it is charged, which isn't much lately).

-I am thankful for eggnog and eggnog overnight oats.(but not eggnog coffee creamer.  Ick.)

Yep - I am one lucky lady.

What are you thankful for?
