Today didn't exactly go as planned.
A trip to the park ended in a two year old with a fractured foot,
hours in the emergency room
and orders to keep him off his feet. For four weeks.
That should be fun.
But here is what I am grateful for in the midst of all that:
my husband having the kind of job where he can meet me at the hospital
and manage the other two.
a boy who rock starred it in the ER,
laid completely still for nine x-rays
and laughed and smiled through what felt like an endless wait.
for offers from family to help as needed over the next few weeks
and cupcakes provided by my mom to make up for some of our trouble.
I'm thankful that we live near enough a Children's Hospital
that we had plenty of stickers and disney movies to occupy our time
and a staff that gets kids and love on them,
making everything a whole lot easier.
And I'm thankful for those cute little toes.
How's your week been?
Where have you seen the good, the joyful, the moments of hope?
Link up, grab a button (or link back) and
go say hello to some other lovelies.
You'll be blessed, I'm sure of it.
