About a week ago a friend of mine posted a status on Facebook asking us all to take time out every day from now until Thanksgiving to post a status everyday of something that we were Thankful for. This was something I needed to do! Our family has had a very trying week with sick parents, kiddos and two hospital stays and I was finding myself at the very bottom of a very frayed rope! I found myself dwelling on all the bad and none of the good. I'm very exhausted and SO happy to be home from the hospital, but I wanted to share my posts that I have put on Facebook over the last week and I promise to post Halloween pictures soon!

THANKFUL STATUS: So thankful that Cannon doesn't realize how miserable hospital stays really are!!!
THANKFUL STATUS: Thankful that HN in no way feels left out by being a big sister to Quads. She called me this morning to tell me she missed Cannon!
THANKFUL STATUS: I'm so thankful for a husband who works his tail off for our family and even though he got home at 3am from coaching @ 815 he woke me up to tell me to get dressed and get out of the house for a breather!!!!
10 years ago I wondered where I'd be in 10 years. Now I know in 10 years I'll be surrounded by giggles and love!!
THANKFUL STATUS: Thankful that when we were told we had a 2 percent chance of twins that we took those odds and that God doubled that and proved to us all that He's the only one that can truly give you your odds!!
Thankful Status: I am thankful that although every morning the Pizza Cutter is put away in a different drawer and I have to search to find it, the fact that it is put up means someone else unloaded the dishwasher!!!
Thankful Status: I am thankful that even though I'm sitting in a hospital room with my Can-Man I still have millions of things to be thankful for!!
I also want to let you know how thankful I am for each and every one of you that reads the blog and encourages our family!!
What are you thankful for?

Well, Honey, you are an inspiration! I am thankful that you reminded me to look on the bright side - even when it's tough. Compared to your week, our difficulties are peanuts, yet you're still focusing on all the good stuff. Way to be! Love ya! Hope Can-Man's right as rain soon.

P.S. Why does the pizza cutter not have an official home?! I've noticed that around our home for YEARS! Is it a sharp? Is it a cooking tool to be placed with the slotted spoon, etc? I just don't know!

Your cheeriness and optimism inspire me! I don't know how you do it all, but you always seem to have a smile and a positive attitude. I hope Cannon is feeling better!
