The good news is, I am improving and though I had to take a couple moments and pray for strength I'm still
I plan on taking one day at a time, just like I always have. Only I'm not expecting much out of myself other than taking care of the kids. I'm hopeful that each day will grow back into me doing more and more. Currently, I have 4 rules for myself,
1. No guilt
2. Do what I can and then rest
3. Pray every minute, of every hour, for patience and gentleness, with myself and my children
4. Take each moment and survive
Funny how I read these now and think, "I really could have used these same rules for myself long before mono."This morning the kids and I worked on our Thankful Jar. We cleaned out last year's slips and are working on filling it back up with things we are thankful for. Each night at supper, we pull out a few and talk about them, them thank God for the person or item listed. Bethany and Joseph had more fun doing it this year than last. The neat thing is that this year, Bethany filled out most of her own cards. I love seeing her big, bulky handwriting on the cards.
Today I'm most thankful for her ability to learn and these words she wrote. It's so neat to see her love learning.
This is my 30 days of Thanks, don't forget to join me, it's never to late to be thankful!
