This weekend has been tough. I mean, really, really tough.
Especially tough is trying to emotionally deal with a child leaving home... and failing miserably. I'm not ready for Princess to leave, but she is going to, nonetheless, in just under three weeks. I'm sure I'll post more on that later.
Today, however, I am trying to focus on gratitude, and am sincerely grateful for these things:
1. Beloved and unknown veterans alike who served our country to ensure that today, I would have the freedom to write what I want, to say what I want, to celebrate Jesus the way I want, and so much more.
2. Mr. Wright, who made it possible for me to hole up in the bedroom all day, catching up on web updates, emails and blogs... even though all seven kids are out of school and making our home into a general madhouse. He even cooked for me, and made sure that I ate throughout the day.
3. My crazy-haired girl, Curlytop, who makes me laugh every single day, and makes me proud of how compassionate and empathetic she is.
What are YOU grateful for today?
