I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Thankful Thursday

I am here, really. I have not gotten lost in the land of many children and I did find my way back from the Mended Little Hearts Convention in Minnesota with very little trouble. I only managed to miss one flight out of four, and that is not too bad for me!

I had a fabulous time at the Mended Little Hearts convention!! There were so many awesome CHD advocates there, just as excited as I was to absorb every little bit of juicy knowledge they had to offer us. I finally got to meet many of my online friends In Real Life, and it was amazing. This group of people has so much energy and compassion, I am honored to be part of such a fabulous group. I am so Thankful for Mended Little Hearts and the opportunity to go meet up with everyone and take all of the workshops, listen to passionate speakers and be once again reminded that I will never be alone, that no matter what happens, there will always be someone who understands exactly how I am feeling.

There was so much that I got to learn about, I don’t even know where to begin, even after being home for 4 days! I have been pouring over my course outline and notes trying to organized all of my thoughts. And still, there is so much to process and I trying to let it all soak in.

We are already planning a family vacation for next year’s MLH Conference, it was just that much fun…and educational. Education is always better when it is fun!

So that is it for this week. I had a great time, but I am Thankful to be back home with my family.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a job, we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.
So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:
1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post, please mention The Nut House and/or http://ourhappynuthouse.com/ so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.
Not every one has a blog, so:
2. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.
3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, as a story, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.
Have fun!

    I am thankful for Heart Moms!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! I haven't had the chance to get all the way through it yet though!
    I share the same feelings as you described above about the MLH Convention. What a great way to spend the week-end! Even though we were away from our kiddos, what better people to be around!

    I really enjoyed visiting with you! Thanks for being my "convention buddy" and hanging out w/me! It was a bit intimidating, but having you by my side made me feel more at ease in that environment!
    Have a blessed week-end!
