I am a mom, a wife, a lover of God and my family, a friend, a naturalist and environmental educator, a writer, a crunchy granola, a reader, thinker, scrapbooker, journeyer - not necessarily in any order.
I had surgery three weeks ago on my foot and ankle, and have not been able to do very much around my house or for my children. My parents and my husband have been taking over all the childcare and housework, and I have had friends who have helped me clean, brought me meals, walked Gabriel to and from school, and cheered me up. So today, my entry in the 30 Days of Thanksgiving is for everyone who has helped us out over the past few weeks. It has been difficult for me to sit here and watch everyone do all of "my" jobs, but I am so grateful for how much time and effort people have poured out on us because they love us. So, thanks to everyone, from the bottom of my heart.
