Grains of Gratitude

Gratitude. There are so many things to be grateful for. So many. Tonight I plan to make this post short though, because I'm trying so hard to go to bed early. I've come down with a nasty head cold and my head is full of goo. In a little bit, the Benadryl will kick in and I'll be off to sleepy town. I'm grateful for that for sure.
  • I'm also grateful that hubby covered for me this morning and helped out with Brenna's preschool Sunday School class. I had offered to sub this morning, but was just a wreck. Head ache, chills, stuffed up nose. Didn't think I should go and share my germs!
  • For a semi-relaxing weekend. We did a lot, but were at least able to stay in town. Seems like any plans we end up with always require travel, it was nice to be home.
  • Today I was grateful for a nice, spring breeze. We went to a nearby high school and flew kites with the kids. Brenna has been fascinated with kites because of the Berenstain Bears (we've seen the kite episode several times on PBS and also own the book!) and has also been watching Mary Poppins. This was so exciting for her and the day was perfect for it!
  • For only one more full week of school! Summer vacation is just around the corner and in 10 days, the school year will be finished. Woo hoo!

Must drag myself to bed now. 5:30 will come awfully quickly...I'm hoping that tomorrow I will feel better.

I'm thankful for Christine, who started Grains of Gratitude. It is becoming one of my favorite posts of the week! And a wonderful way to spend Sunday, reflecting on the GOOD things that are in my life. Feel free to play along!

Have a great week.

All good things and good for me to read too. I worry that sometimes I complain more than being grateful.

I am so sorry you aren't feeling well - that stinks when you need all you energy to get through these last days. Hopefully you feel better today and will have lots of energy for tomorrow's fun field trip!
Take care, friend - Jacque

Isn't it nice to have such wonderful husbands who will pitch in for us?!

The kite flying sounds like such fun! We bought Kayla a kite but haven't used it yet!

Kayla's last day of school was today; can't believe school is out already!
