"Talk about your blessings more than you talk about your burdens."
Happy Thankful Thursday! I'm definitely working hard to remember to count my blessings instead of focusing on life's shortcomings. This week has been especially long. It started off with Moo bringing home some germs from school. She and JJ were sick all Labor Day weekend.
The plus side is that I think being exposed to all those school germs last year has helped to strengthen Moo's immune system because she bounced back late Tuesday night. JJ on the other hand got the worst of is just now starting to show signs of getting better. I'm so grateful because that means we can go back to sleeping through the night. Moo was tardy twice this week alone because I hit the snooze button one too many times to catch up on sleep.
Also, this week the back brakes went out on our car. Apparently when the last set of brake pads went on they forgot to re-grease the pins which ended up doing more damage. Long story short God was looking out for us because after being quoted $300 and up by a few chain places, the Mr took a chance on calling a repair shop from our old neighborhood and received a much better rate. It pays to support local small businesses because they don't have to adhere to any pre-set corporate pricing.
The Mr has been going through some stresses, but he's been managing to keep it together like a champ. We all go through our rainy seasons. And this is ours, but we're choosing to keep our heads above the water. The sun is peeking over the horizon and it won't be long before it'll be fully shining again.
What are you giving thanks for this week?
