I AM thankful!
Lately, like everyone else I have been thinking about what I am thankful for. I thought I would list a few things. Maybe sometimes people don't realize how truly thankful I am of things by the way I whine, but I am. Sorry, whining is in my blood, lol.
First off I want to say that I am thankful for how high functioning Parker is. I whine that he argues with me or that he's difficult, but I am glad that he is. I'm so sorry to the parents of kids with autism that don't talk. It must be heartbreaking. I just want to say I'm thankful for his speech and his knowledge because I know sometimes I don't mention it. I am, from the bottom of my heart I am. When he was 3 he could say only one word at a time. Most of the words were just sounds that only we could understand. He wouldn't cooperate with his speech teacher and his main word was, "No". 2 speech teachers later he can say many sentances and even recite the "Night before Christmas". This boy is my angel and he amazes me every day.
I am thankful for my smart, sweet, creative little girl. She is the light of my life and keeps me on my toes.
I am thankful for my wonderful husband who I love with all my heart. He is the best!
I am thankful for my Mom, who I talk to everyday. She is always there for me and I love her so much.
I am thankful for my sister Ronda, who is my best friend. She listens to my problems, always lends a hand with everything, loves my kids, and has always had my best interest at heart.
I am thankful for my brother Jim, who is the funniest guy I know. He is a smart alec little punk, but deep down, he is a really caring guy! When I was a kid I thought he was the coolest thing ever.
I am thankful for my sister Sherie, she cares about me and I love her.
I am thankful for all the people who work with Parker. They are the best and really know him.
I am thankful for my friends Nikki, Heidi and Shannon! You guys are always there for me!
I am thankful for my online friends. You guys are the best.
I am thankful for my friends who are not online, lol, of course!
I am thankful for my cats, though they annoy me, I love them.
I am thankful for all the kind people out there that make my day.
I am thankful for God, most of all, who made everything I am thankful for!
