Thankfulness - Day 16

Today I am thankful for:

- the pink driveway - at our school children with disabilities are allowed to use the UNDERCOVER pink driveway - which is all kinds of awesome on rainy days like today;

- a super fun day at school for Emma - her teacher was away today so her class got split up and she got to be in Kindy with Audrey;

- kids showered and into their pj's by 4:30 on a Friday afternoon;

- antihistamine eye drops - I never knew these existed but I'm hoping they will help me be less allergic to my knitting;

- the supportive special needs community - we celebrate each other's milestones and grieve each other's losses - and for those of you who pray please keep a mumma in your prayers - her precious boy lost his battle today;

- surprise packages that arrive in the mail from members of the special needs community - thanks Bron! The girls love the clothes and the itunes voucher - they are browsing the app store right now (Star Wars Angry Birds is top of the download list);

- that the lovely lady who delivers my fruit and veg on a Friday also happens to be a GP and obliged me by listening to Ashlea's chest this afternoon;

- that Ashlea's chest is clear despite her horrid sounding cough;

- that we still have Ashlea with us;

- that we know there is something so much better to come - a place where:
No more shall there be in it
    an infant who lives but a few days,
    or an old man who does not fill out his days.  (Isaiah 65:20)

What are you thankful for today?

1. A really horrid and sad sort of day at work is over and I'm now on two weeks holidays - Yay!
2. Mum's carpel tunnel op on both hands yesterday went really well and so far she's coping just fine.
3. Dinner in a rainy city with very special friends.
