Sick Baby ~ Thankful Thursday

Well, here it is again - Thankful Thursday! I’m so happy to be able to offer up “Thanks” regularly for the many wonderful blessings I have, whether large or small, significant or mundane. I’d like to offer a special thank you to Iris at her blog, Sting My Heart for hosting this wonderful Meme. If you would like to participate or just read from more thankful hearts, pop on over to Thankful Thursday and join us.

This week I haven’t gotten much done with writing for my own blog or reading others. I didn’t even get the FaithWriters Writing Challenge finished. It seems as though there’s been a lot to distract me this week. The most significant of which is that my 10-month old little Sweet Pea has come down with her first cold. It’s just a cold, but she’s miserable and is requiring a lot of extra TLC from Mommy. So this week I am thankful for:

~ Facial tissue. Her poor little nose is running terribly.

~ Veggie Tales, which somewhat distracts her from how she is feeling.

~ Baby Tylenol, which is keeping down her fever.

~ Good health. I am soooo thankful that she has always been healthy and that this is a minor illness – I know it can be so much worse.

~ Good temperament. Even while being sick, she’s in pretty good spirits.

~ Being a SAHM. I realize how blessed I am to be able to stay at home with her always, but especially when she is sick. I know there are many who don’t have that option.

Ohhhh....sorry to hear your little one is under the weather. What a blessing (like you said) to be able to stay at home with her and nurse her back to health. Prayers for her quick recovery back to herself... :)

Sorry to hear that you haven't been able to write as much, but I am so glad to hear that you are taking care of your precious little girl. As you can see, I am behind on reading and commenting as well, but I guess better to post late than never. :)
