We have so much to be thankful for

We've had quite a rough few weeks with the boys but things are slowly becoming "normal" again. Both boys have been pretty sick, first with a cold then it turned into ear infections for both of them. In the last 3 weeks, we have been to the doctor 3 times and to the ER once. Austin had quite a rough few nights, the antibiotics he went on didn't take away his infection so it became way worse. He had 3 nights of being up most of the night in pain. It makes me so sad just thinking about it. One night he was in our bed because would not sleep for longer than 15 minutes and could barely get comfortable, that night I was headbutted in the eye and kicked in the head. AHHH! I've cried so much and have felt such sympathy for my little boys that I couldn't even focus on the fact that I was sick too. Mike has been so great and has been right there with me cleaning up throw up, rocking the boys back to sleep, giving countless doses of tylenol, and wiping snotty noses. It has made me realize how lucky I am to have a husband who really does just as much as I do, then he goes to work on top of it. I can't say enough about him, he truly is such a good man and an amazing Dad. He is sad when they are sad and happy when they are happy.

Through all the tough times we have been through in the last weeks, I can't help but be constantly reminded of how lucky we really are to have kids that are healthy and happy. That things could be so much worse.

Things that I am thankful for...

  • My amazing husband
  • Our beautiful boys
  • Our cute little house
  • Our health
  • Our parents
  • Our brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents
  • That we live in a beautiful place
  • Our friends
  • Our jobs
  • the love we have in our hearts because of all these things
I pray that these things drift constantly into my mind to remind me why I wake up everyday and keep on living life.
