So thankful

I am truly thankful and amazed at how awesome my God is. He knew that we needed a good week. Thank you Lord.

The last 3 weeks were horrid. This week has been good. I am thankful and want to let you all know, that we just finished 5 days of calm and peaceful mornings. This is after last Friday, I cried the entire way home from dropping the kids off at school and on and off throughout the entire day.

I am thankful that Michael and I were able last Friday night to go out to dinner (while our nephew babysat and was at home getting slapped by Akila), and talked about some concrete changes we could try to make to things go a little more smoothly in the mornings. I am thankful for a parenting seminar last Friday night (after our dinner out), and Saturday morning that was somewhat refreshing and motivating (it was mainly focused on parenting neuro-typical children, well not focused on them, just assuming that is what everyone has-but none the less, it was good).

I am thankful that our Dr. listened to (or read and heard I should say), my email about the new med and agreed we should stop it and try a different med (starting it next week). I am thankful that we have met our insurance deductible (we met it in early Feb), and when I picked up the new med yesterday, it was not an obnoxious price.

I am thankful that the Lord adopted me, and that he designed our family so beautifully. I am thankful for my husband and ALL 4 of my kids. I am thankful that the Lord is so good and knew that all 6 of us needed a week off.
