fostering a grateful spirit

rest {day 206}

today I am grateful for sore muscles that remind me that the things that matter are worth standing up for. also grateful for rest, for snuggles with my sweet little family, and then for Sunday dinner with my family. I love getting together, sharing good food, and just being together.

what’s your favorite thing that your family regularly does together?


tired and grateful {day 152}

tonight I’m so grateful to be home with my hubby who is doing well after a scary episode. he woke up really early with a high fever. a little bit later he woke up with tingling in his hands and feet. he then began to have a very difficult time breathing and was no longer able to move his hands at all. he was scared, I was scared, moj was scared. after tons of tests, lots of fluids, and strict orders to rest, we are back home and doing fairly well. this flu business going around is some crazy stuff. praying that I avoid this bug so I can stay healthy to take care of hubs (and do the exciting flowers for the bridal show this weekend!). also praying that sweet hubs has gotten through the worst of whatever he’s fighting (his flu tests were negative…but they say it might still be the flu) and that he’s on the mend. I don’t like seeing him so miserable.
