Christmas Blessings

Well, I missed Thankful Thursday but I still feel blessed so, here is my attempt to catch up...

I am thankful school is over for the semester! It was a lot of group projects and mathmatical work this semester and it was hard to coordinate all of that with our life!

I am thankful my father-in-law made it through his surgery and is recovering well.

I am thankful for my friend Randi, who had an emergency appendectomy two weeks ago and is recovering well. She still has pain, so we are praying for that to dissipate.

I am thankful for Jesus. Not only at Christmas, but everyday of the year. I am a worrier. Not proud of it, but I am. Jesus makes it bearable and helps me remember certain things are just out of my control.

I am thankful for time with Emily, though she was sick, I like the days we can spend together with Hannah.

I am thankful one very critical meeting for work is over. I am looking forward to finding solutions for one of the students I work with and for his parents to have peace about their son's future.

Now that the big chill is here, I am thankful we got our Christmas tree a few weeks ago, before the snow and ice:) Hannah was unimpressed with this family tradition and napped the entire time!

I am thankful for the wonder and enthusiasm of children...watching Emily and Hannah rejoice in all beauty of the season really makes it special.

Hugs and love to all of you,

Ahhh...the nebulizer. We had to do one of those with Katherine last month. No fun at all. I hope she is feeling better soon.

There really are so many things to be thankful for. :-)

Tell Em I hope she is feeling better. She's such a sweetie and just SO thoughtful making "oatmeal" for Molly.

I am SO glad the semester is over. I feel the pain of finals. Believe me.

Hope everyone is healthy.
