A Day of Thanks....

Sunday, January 27, 2008

No, its not Thanksgiving, but I'm just feeling a little thankful today. While we've had a very busy past couple of days, there's been a lot of good things going around. Let's start off by thanking my parents, who drove down to Champaign to see us. And not only that, they brought us food! Well, I'm thankful for having such wonderful parents, but for those of you that haven't had the opportunity to have my mom's cooking......you're missing out. We're talking about some GOOD food. We have in our refrigerator: ham, mashed potatoes, chicken casserole, cheesy hashbrown potatoes, and chili. Oh yeah, don't forget the peach pie on our counter. It's been awfully nice coming home from the hospital and not having to cook or stop by McDonalds. What else are we thankful for? Well, Barb is doing much better and will soon get released from the hospital. A slow recovery process, but one that is making leaps and bounds every day. The cards, thoughts, prayers, and visitors have made such a difference in keeping all of our spirits up. There's just so many other things, but I'm going to have to cut this short for now. The dryer just dinged at me and I need to get some more laundry done before we head back to the hospital.
