i like top five lists.



I am thankful to have been able to share in Kristin and Mark's big day. 

I am thankful for my friend Larissa, tho I don't know if she reads my blog, because she so encouraged me to join the Moms who do the pre-school for 4 year olds.  He is very comfortable going to the different homes for pre-school, and has started drawing at home.  These are big steps for mother and son...branching out a bit!

I am thankful for healthy babies and safe deliveries, but especially that of this beautiful little princess dolly girl.  I am a gr'aunty again!  Katie Lynn (bride's sister) & Jon, welcomed this little joy into the world on Thursday.  I can't wait to see her on Thanksgiving Day!!!!!

I am thankful for relatives who welcome the VIP to stay a couple nights at their place.  It gives her a little change of scenery, more chances to chat, and it gives us a little break.  Breaks are good. 

I am thankful for the time we've been able to spend with the VIP.  We have 2 more weeks, rounding out a full three months.  You know that feeling I've had for a while, like someone was missing?  I'd be with my three kids, and look around sort of wondering why I felt like there was a little space in my heart wanting to be filled.  I don't feel lacking just now.  I've certainly been frustrated and tired and a little irrational a fair piece when it comes to the VIP, but mostly it's been good to be able to care so deeply for someone so quickly again.  We will be lonesome for a stretch when she returns to her home on the other side of the world.

Those are the five things I am thankful for off the top of my pretty little head this afternoon.
Peace and Love to you, my friendies!!
