I'm thankful for play dates. Mckenna and I went to the train park with my friend, and her's. Angie and I became friends when we were both pregnant, and Mckenna and Harlow have been hanging out since birth. They love spending time together. Harlow became a big sissy a few weeks back, and now Mckenna gets to play with Harlow and baby sissy, London, on play dates. It's always a blast.
I'm thankful for my parents. Ronnie has been in 3 weeks as of tomorrow, and I have virtually lived at my parents' house with the except of 2 nights. They have made the stay a breeze and for that I am SO thankful.
I'm thankful for water. In AZ, in the summer, water becomes your best friend. I have guzzled a lot of water each day (about a gallon a day) ever since pregnancy and nursing, but it tastes so much better in the summer!
I'm thankful for an adult CF team that is trusting in the fact that I know my body and know what I need. They have been incredibly helpful this stay and definitely putting me in the best position to succeed. I don't feel the pressure to get out of here as quickly as I have in times past and that has made a big difference. I'm getting close to blowing this popsicle stand!
I'm thankful for surprise visits. Yesterday was Mandi and my 3 year wedding anniversary. Mandi didn't mention coming down at all Monday or Tuesday, so I kind of figured something was up :) After seeing that she was not online Wednesday morning at her usual time, I was more convinced that I'd see her. To my delight, Mckenna and her walked into my room just before 11am. I was soooooooo happy. I know that packing up and coming down here isn't easy, and I'm just thankful that I have a wife willing to do that.
I'm thankful for my momma. My mom has spent time here in the Hole with me almost every single day during my time here. As a bonus, she usually comes bearing gifts like Dunkin Donuts coffee or a bag of jelly beans. She also brings me dinner almost every night. I am truly blessed to have the family that I do.
So, what are you thankful for today?
