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

Happy Thursday Y’all!

What a crazy week! We have been settling in to our old routines this week after Wing Nut and E Nut spent 3 weeks in NY with Grammy and Grandpa Nut. It seemed like forever that they were gone, and I am so Thankful that they are home. Although I am sure they would have loved to stay another 3 weeks, they are happy to be home and digging through all of their long lost belongings and enjoying their new bedrooms.

And I am also Thankful that I was just able to send them to their respective bedrooms after an all out emotion fest over a sea shell. It was like an easy button. I am really starting to love the fact that they have their own bedrooms and find new ways to use it every day.

I am Thankful that Wee Nut is over his asthma attack and that even though I was completely freaked out and thought for sure that we were headed back to the hospital, I am getting the hang of this and learning to manage it before it gets out of control. He is now on Singulair tablets and Qvar inhaler every day and I think that will help to keep things from getting out of control again.

My parents brought the big kids home the day after Wall Nut’s family left and we got a few nice days in with them too. Including a 1st birthday party for Honey Nut, which she was clueless about and a 4th birthday part for Little Nut Nut, who was excited beyond belief! I am always Thankful for visits from my parents and birthday parties are always a great time!

My father’s Chemo treatments are almost over and everything is looking good. He gets very sick this time around and is knocked out with flu like yuckiness, but his treatment is getting close to being over and we are hoping that his next remission is much longer than his last. I am so very Thankful that things are looking good for him and he looks great!

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 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 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, a story, a vlog, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

Have fun!

    Wow, crazy! You weren’t kidding, haha. My kids are leaving next week for vacation…far away. But thankfully only 10 days. Which is TOO long. I couldn’t imagine 3 weeks.
    Oh and the asthma issue – have you ever gone to a hollistic doctor? Me & my family go to someone who has gotten rid of our allergies, asthma… and tons of other things using Bioset allergy treatments. Here is the info if you are interested: http://healinginsideout.info/bioset/bioset.html#whatis

      It was a very strange feeling with only 3 kids around the house!

      He has only recently be dx with asthma, so we are still trying to learn about it and understand it. I never thought of doing anything hollistic, I am going to have to look into that. Thanks for sharing the link!
