Grains of Gratitude is home at Brady's Bunch, blog of the gracious and energetic Christine.
School is out for two weeks at our house. That is a big long break here at Chez Joyeux. But the last few weeks have been wild and we need some time to regroup.
I am grateful for my father's visit this weekend. We are helping him celebrate his birthday. My sons are having a blast playing cards and staying up late with Grandpa.
I am grateful we have a messy home filled with work for me to do the next two weeks. Declutter, clean, rearrange are the buzzwords of the moment.
I am grateful I am feeling better. A couple weeks ago I got laid flat by a health issue that has plagued me for most of my life. Really nothing compared to what health issues so many people deal with, but enough to put me in tears and finally in bed for a couple days. Mending has taken a lot longer than it used to. The old grey mare, she ain't what she used to be...and all that.
I am grateful for my husband and children who took such good care of me. They really treated me with kid gloves. I am so blessed.
I am grateful for a chance to blog a little more in the next few weeks and to visit all my bloggy friends.
I am grateful for those who laid down their lives in service to their country, to those who remain willing to do so, and to the families that support them and share with us. May this Memorial Day include time to offer prayers of thanks for all of them.
