Today, I am grateful to have our Daisy home from her second knee surgery. She is recovering well, much better than last time. We have to take the Cone of Shame off for her to eat, and as you can see, she doesn't want it put back on. As soon as she saw me coming with it, she scooted her head under a chair.
Her tactic didn't work. How sad!
Today, I am grateful for the Ironman Championships in Kona...always a good thing. George was able to hook his computer up to our television to watch the streaming internet coverage live all day long while wearing one of his Ironman Wisconsin finisher shirts.
This is, for George, much better than waiting until November for the networks to splice together 90 minutes of sappy coverage with voice-over by Bob Costas. I actually prefer the Bob Costas version because he talks about the age groupers and their stories of Ironman challenge. Yes, I'm sappy. George is not.
Today, I am grateful Nick coined a new word when he described a drugged Daisy as comatoast. LOVE that.
Today, I am grateful for our Stephen Ministry's study on Spiritual Gifts. Our teacher Karen did a great job guiding us through it, and it was very affirming and uplifting. Karen gave us each a rose on the last class Thursday. Mine is still beautiful.
Today, I am grateful for federal holidays not observed by our school district. George has today off, and the boys don't. We have an all-day date!
What are you grateful for today?
