Well, today I am grateful for our health. A week and a half ago I got strep thoat and Influenza. I was sooo sick. I spent 4 days in bed and then Cardon got it. He is just getting his appetite back but didn't go to school for 4 days. Poor guy! Anyway, I'm crossing my fingers that no one else will get it although Amelia did wake up this morning with a little cough but now seems to be fine. Who knows! Anyway, I am also grateful for BJ. He took care of me while I was sick and did such great job. I love him! Today, is Presidents Day and so the kids are home. I need to remember to spend time playing with them since I often get caught up with cleaning and such. At lunch we played "3 things I love about you". I went around the table and told each of my kids 3 things that I love about them. You should have seen there little smiling faces when it was their turn. I have such good, happy kids. At Brinly's ballet class I had the opportunity to visit with a mom about some of my beliefs. It turned out that she had all these questions but felt awkward asking me and I find that I am nervous to share things because I don't want people to think that I'm only talking to them because I want to convert them to my beliefs. Anyway, it was refreshing to be open about my beliefs and have her appreciate my openess. What a great day!
