I meant to write about Thankfulness and Appreciation all month. But Blogger broke, and I couldn't post like I wanted the last few days. So here is a rundown of my intended posts, in abbreviated fashion:
Day 2: I am thankful for Noosa yogurt. Yes, yogurt. Dan and I went on a low-carb diet and my one daily "sin" is Noosa yogurt. It is heaven on a spoon. Seriously, I would eat this stuff over cookies and ice cream every day. And I do. Simple pleasures, but Lord knows I need those! And in case you are wondering, the low-carb diet thing totally works... especially for my husband. Might work better for me without the Noosa, but I refuse. I will go down with the Noosa clutched in my hand, baby!
Day 3: I am thankful for our super fantastic babysitters. They are a pair of sisters from down the street who have a brother on the spectrum, totally get Jman, and he loves them. They made it possible for Big Daddy and I to have a date night.
Day 4: I am truly thankful for the new friends we have made via the connections of autism. We had a night with friends who have two awesome boys on the spectrum. We watched football, watched the kids play-ish, and chatted chatted chatted. It has been a very long time since we have done anything like that, and it was pretty awesome. You know, we have lost a few friends (or potential friends) along this autism way, but the ones we have gained far outweigh the ones we have lost.
And that is it in a nutshell... three days of thankfulness rolled into one post.
