Happy (achoo!, cough!, cough!, ugh!) Thanksgiving!

Before I lost the chance I wanted to link up to A Year of May First: Stuffed with Thankful Thought Linky Party.
But first a little tale...Our family started Thanksgiving with a round of colds that started last weekend with me and a 101 fever that ended up triggering my asthma and knocked me on my proverbial you know what! Then just when I thought I couldn't get feel worse, my oldest daughter wakes ups Tuesday morning with the same symptoms and my youngest son was sounding congested too. Thankfully the middle girl was still good, so she had to hold the fort down at school alone on the last day. Let me add that Daddy was only half off the hook. He was taking meds to fight off pneumonia...yes coughing and stuffy. Finally Wednesday, oldest is feeling better, youngest is getting there, and daddy's medicine is kicking in nicely, but I was much worse. It took another call to the doctor and some more meds to get me feeling like I was headed on the road to better.

I know, I know you are saying this is a HAPPY Thanksgiving linky party. This doesn't sound happy!!

Don't despair. Here it comes...

  1. I'm soooo thankful for modern medicine. My family always jokes around about living during the pioneer days. Would we be the first ones thrown off the wagon train? Modern medicine is a true blessing and if you have children that blessing just grows.
  2. I'm thankful that this is Thanksgiving Break and that my family has the week to  rest and get better. It is so hard making sub plans when you are sick. I'm so thankful I didn't have to or had to choose between kids and work.
  3. I'm thankful that my husband is a dairy farmer and his work is at his home so he could help me out, especially when I couldn't get out of bed.
  4. I'm thankful for girls who are old enough and willing to help out with Little Man when they know mommy needs it. I'm so proud of them.
  5. Which leaves me with my last thankful thought, I'm so very thankful for my wonderful family. I truly have been blessed by them and am thankful everyday for them.
Now it is your turn. Link before the holidays are over!
