This has been a crazy week.  We had no school on Monday, and that always makes the rest of the work week super busy!  I’ve had late nights preparing for meetings, co-workers who frustrate me, and technology problems. It just has not been fun.

Another struggle has been with Gabe at dinner time.  He’s always been a picky eater and has had texture issues since he was a baby.  It’s so bad that even licking new foods makes him gag.  I feel that he needs feeding therapy to deal with these issues but it is so expensive, it is not something we can afford right now, and that is frustrating.

In these times of stress and frustration, I tend to just get sad and overwhelmed, but this time I want to try to focus on my blessings and be thankful for the good things God is doing in my life.  So, here is a list of a few things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for a job that allows me to be home during the day which saves time and money for travel, gas, clothes, etc.

I am thankful for a husband who takes care of our family and is always willing to give of himself.

I am thankful for Gabe’s tender heart and how he “loves everybody”.

I am thankful for Jordan and her strong spirit and even though she can be tough to handle, she will also just laugh with you and bright up your day by the new things she is learning to say.

I am thankful for family who are close and willing to help with the kids when we need it.

I am thankful for friends at church who challenge me to go deeper in my faith.

I am thankful for a God who loves me and always provides for my needs!
