Today I am thankful for . . .
1044. The gift of A Decorated Tree. Yes, we finally did it! After a morning of over-doing-it (because I thought I was feeling so much better when I woke up), I had to have a nap right after lunch. The boys did most of the lunch dishes for me and when I got up from my nap, we decided to tackle the tree assembly and decorating. It looks fabulous and it truly made my day. I love my tree!
1045. The gift of Everyone Feeling a Bit Better Today. The boys seem to be feeling much better, and I find it rather unfair (although I'm thankful for this too) that they were able to bounce-back from being sick more easily than I have. It must be my age. Like I stated above, I thought I was doing better today, but I realize now that I probably did too much. For the remainder of the evening I think it's time to relax.
1046. The gift of Having a Dog to Make Me Feel Better. My boys lament over the fact that Alaska just "lies around and does nothing all day", but I actually like and appreciate her laid-back attitude towards life. It's hard to explain, and unless you are a dog-lover (and in particular, a dog-lover of lap-dogs), you won't understand how much sheer joy and comfort my dog brings me just by lying on my lap, or allowing me to snuggle with her.
