I am happy for

My sweet daughter (2-1/2 years old) and I have been sick.
People call it the crud. Never hear it called that before but it is the worst.
When I was having a coughing fit a few minutes ago my daughter brought me a toy spoon and said 
"you don't sound very good, have honey."
So I thought I would take a minute and be thankful for some things:
Staying in PJ's all day (I did shower and put on clean one's though)
The sound of her footsteps in her footed PJ's
Honey
Garlic Bread, hubby will be making me for dinner, yum
Chihuahua kisses
my daughter "learning" how to blow her nose
pigtails
A chandelier where a hole was (hubby is a carpenter and the hole was there for a long, long time)
a hubby who went to church, sat with my parents and then did all the grocery shopping because baby and I were too sick to go
then he made pancakes <3

What are you happy for today?

Shannon,
Hope you and the little one gets to feeling better real soon. I am grateful that I have the love of my family and friends. That I have a job to go to. That God blessed me with a talent to make beautiful things with my hands and with the ablity to read and write, so I can keep up with all you lovely people out there in blogland.

Oh, don't you just love hubbies?? What a sweetheart! Hope ya'll are heading towards wellness now. We had it for 2 weeks. I am thankful for my God, who loves me in spite of my selfish heart, my hubby and kids, and my family of my heart; the people who aren't related to me by anything except love. And especially for the wonderful people in the jewelry world who awe and inspire me. Hugs!

Feel better soon!!!! So happy you can find the little things to be happy for during a time of "crud". Its hard to do that. As much as I HATE when the kids are sick, or I am, and I DON"T have time for it, I do like that time to snuggle and watch tv with the kids.

I hope you get to feelin' better soon. Those are wonderful things to be grateful for. I haven't eaten breakfast, but if I had garlic bread in the house, I'd dive in!
