I’m grateful for a husband who gives me sovereign silver and juice when I am sick.

I’m grateful for a heroic mom who comes to care for my babies on her day off so I can sleep.

I’m grateful for a 2 month old who takes a three hour nap so I too can take a three hour nap.

I’m grateful to feel better today.
***And as an aside, having watched TV for the first time yesterday in a long time, I have to add that I am COMPLETELY appalled by the Toyota Highlander commercials. The parents are portrayed as buffoons and the boy is cheeky and disrespectful and in serious need of some Sassy Spray. The tagline of these commercials is “Just because you’re a parent doesn’t mean you have to be lame.” There is something seriously wrong with a society who thinks this is acceptable, and worse yet, funny. ***
