I'm so sick of being cold and cleaning up puddles of melted snow and being cooped up and school being out or starting late and hearing nothing but screams and whines and fights from two children who are beyond themselves from being cooped up indoors for too long. I am sick of the necessity of shoes and gloves. I am sick to death of sneezing and runny noses and another empty box of tissues.
In other words, it's time for the TToT.
1. In spite of the fact that I know this thankful will be terribly unoriginal, I would be negligent to omit my great thankfulness to Yvonne for starting 1000 Voices for Compassion, Lizzi for sparking it, the dedicated hosts, and the inspiring contributors, of whose posts I've only read a tiny fraction. My need to write my post and event coincided beautifully, and I am so flattered and touched by the comments I received.
And on to more minor thankfuls:
2. Red beans and rice
4. Free open gym
6. Planning birthday parties with verbal children
7. Lisa's emails
8. No tears last night at bedtime
9. "You mean Leo will keep me company and keep me safe?"
10. And, OK, sledding.
