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!

Here we go again, bringing back the goodness that y’all have come to know and love…and I am hoping, miss.

I looked back through my blog, and can’t believe that I never even posted a simple Thankful Thursday post after Owain’s surgery. How did that happen? How did I just loose 6 months? How did I go from rejoicing over Owain’s successful Fontan procedure, to mourning over the loss of my Dad? Why is it that no matter what my husband does to support us, he can’t seem to catch a break?

How is it that I can even face another day?

For these things, I have created Thankful Thursday. For these things, I am struggling to find normalcy in my otherwise perfectly chaotic life. For these things I am forcing myself to bring back Thankful Thursday when I have been avoiding it all day.

I am not going to post a link up today, I can’t seem to get that motivated. You can count on it for next week, so you better be ready.

Today I am Thankful for many things…

For the amazing team of doctors, pediatric cardiologists, and his surgeons, who have been caring for his heart for the past 3 1/2 years, I am Thankful for everything they have done to give me my precious little boy.

For every moment I ever spent with my father, I am Thankful for all of the wonderful times and regretful for the not so good ones.

For my extended family who willingly took on my 5 children so I could spend the final weeks of my Dad’s life in the hospital with him, my Mom & my Brother, I am Thankful for a loving family.

For my husband, Mr Wall Nut who is gone 14 hours a day working to save our home and provide for his family.

I am Thankful for my 5 children who put up with me and do the best they can to try to understand what is going on around them.

And I am Thankful for all of you and your kind, encouraging, heartfelt words. Thank You.

While I am not doing a link up today, I would love to hear what you are Thankful For Today!
