2010 Gratitude Challenge - November 19


For the month of November Our Homeschool Reviews will be participating in a Gratitude Challenge hosted by Brenda at Garden of Learning.  For each day, I'll post about something I am thankful for.

Today I am thankful for...My Daughter's Kindness!!  Last night I went to bed not feeling well and woke up the same way.  She made me cinnamon and sugar toast for breakfast (because that is what she usually gets when she is sick).  After breakfast I needed to lay down and was on the couch for about 3 hours.  She has a bell that she plays with and uses when she is sick to call for me, and she gave it to me to use to call on her.  Isn't that sweet?!  

So I used it....Ding, "Maisy needs to go outside, can you let her out?"  Ding, "Maisy is scraping at her water bowl, can you fill it up?"  Ding, "Can you make your bed and get dressed?"  Ding, "Can you fold your clothes?"  She also brought me the phone when I needed it and played quietly until I felt good enough to get up.  I got up around lunchtime and have been feeling better.  That medicated time on the couch really helped!  ;o)

Thanks for all the well wishes in my last gratitude post.  I rarely get sick, and my daughter reminded me today that I had told her back when she and daddy were sick, that I can't get sick because I don't have time for it.  Well, I guess it catches up to everyone sooner or later.  Here's to getting better!
