Multitude Monday 65

I am thankful:

August 22, 2011

2826.  for all of the vitamins and minerals packed into fresh fruit and vegetables
2827.  for the sound of little feet walking toward the stairs while saying, "Ba, Ba (for bath)"
2828.  for Kleenex tissue
2829.  for B's behavior despite feeling bad today

August 23, 2011

2830.  for energy to do some much needed housework
2831.  for LAUGHter shared with Sandy regarding our juicing experience
2832.  for B mimicking us....sticking his tongue out

August 24, 2011

2833.  for points about life that are continuously driven home through sermons, books, blog posts, articles, etc.
2834.  for dramatic lighting and how I enjoy capturing it via photography
2835.  that after dinner play was fun and relaxing
2836.  that Apple is fixing our computer under re-repair, so no charge for us
2837.  for B asking for more fresh fruit/veggie juice

August 25, 2011

2838.  for a little boy who is feeling much better

2839.  for sensing signs of all while riding my bike in the cool morning breeze--EVEN IN FLORIDA!
2840.  that a sick little boy brings challenges, but it also brings increased cuddling

August 26, 2011

Today, I am thankful for modern conveniences.  I am thankful for text messaging (2841) to cancel a play date with a friend due to B waking up with a fever; for Netflix (2842) and the plethora of movies B can watch while feeling bad; for a pediatrician (2843) that is a few blocks away, a pharmacy (2844) that is just as close, and a husband (2845) who can be home in 8-10 minutes.  I am thankful for medication (2846) that offers pain relief to a crying little boy.  I am soooooo thankful for the things I overlook every day that make my life easier.

August 27, 2011

2847.  that despite such little sleep last night I had the energy needed throughout the day
2848.  for a visit to the Aquarium which distracted B from his ear pain for a little while

2849.  that I completed my 7 day juice fast
2850.  for all of the yard work Sam did today

August 28, 2011

2851.  for a little boy desiring to play again this morning
2852.  for Miguel's chips and salsa
2853.  for a quiet evening spent chatting with my in-laws

I like how on Friday you looked deeper to find things to be thankful for. I'm glad he is feeling better, its always so hard to watch them be sick and throws everything off track. Such a sweet sleeping boy!
