Today I am grateful for validation coming from a totally outside source that I made a damn good decision. I may not always make hard decisions quickly but in this case it really is the right one.

Today I am grateful for my son. We might fight and yell at each other and some days I might wonder if he's going to live to see 18...But overall he's a good kid and I love him...

Today I am grateful for the crisp mornings that fall is bringing to us. I look forward the to the riot of color in the trees that will explode around me in the coming weeks. I am also glad for a warm sweatshirt and a travel mug of fair trade coffee to enjoy while sitting in the morning breezes taking my child to school.

Today I am grateful to have a husband that I absolutely, totally and completely adore. After 18 years of being through every level of shit you can think of together, I'm still glad that I wake up every morning to his smile and lay down every night in his arms. He means the world to me and I'm lucky to have him in my life.

Today I am grateful for my husband and children. They support me and love me and care for me when I am unable to mother anyone else. After being awake for 35 hours counseling, supporting and advocating for a friend in need I was given a hot meal and put to bed by my family. My wonderful husband made sure the kids got their homework done, got bathed and got to bed so I could sleep like I needed to. *and made me into a mushball with with thumper before putting me to bed*

For that I feel eternally blessed that i have such a great husband and kids.

Today I am grateful for my children's health. I got to see first hand in the last 15 hours how much of a bitch it is to get help for your child when the doctors, the agencies and the insurance companies each have their own ideas of how treatment needs to happen and unfortunately that's not what is in the best interest of a VERY special needs child.

So I am eternally grateful I was blessed with 3 healthy, smart, beautiful children.

Today I am grateful for my ability to change gears and adapt to the current crisis of the day *or minute*. I've been blessed with the talent for looking at all the options and able to remain mostly calm and rational even when inside I feel like ripping all my hair out...

So here's to grace and agility under crisis, coupled with the uncanny ability to make the world's best lemonade out of the lemons life throws my way some days...

Today I am grateful that I have a sense of humor...I think I'd have fallen apart years ago if it wasn't' for my ability to poke fun at myself...

Today I am grateful for willpower. I just realized that if you sit a box of tastykake donut holes in front of me my natural reflex is to just keep reaching into the box until they are gone....I stopped about 1/2 the way through the box, not because I felt full, but because I HAD EATEN HALF THE DAMN BOX!!! So now the donuts are safely tucked away and I am grateful for willpower...even if it doesn't kick in til half the box is gone....

Today I am grateful for York's Public Transit system...I have used it in the past when we've had no vehicle but this time I'm having to rely on it more than I did before...I am grateful that I can maneuver very easily from one bus to the next and get my kid to school and get my stuff done during the day without having to bug all my friends to take me everywhere...

Today I am grateful for 2 things...because I can be...

I am grateful for alternatives to the shitastic public schools we have here in the city...Caillie goes to one of the best charter schools I've heard of in this part of the state and its totally free to the *mostly* lower income families that are enrolled. The teachers and staff make it a point to know EVERY child's name and know most of the parents as well. They stress the importance of ALL of the big subjects, not just what is on the standardized tests. They provide a safe place for children to learn, through parental involvement, high standards and amazing teachers and staff, all for free. All they ask in return is that the parents occasionally donate classroom items and be involved in their student's education. In this day and age finding good public schooling in a strapped inner city district is hard if not impossible, luckily Lincoln Charter exists..For that I am grateful...

I am also grateful for having the mother I was happy to be born with this lifetime. She has her faults, but for the lot she was given in life she is one hell of a fighter. She's strong, opinionated, intelligent, witty and has a killer sense of humor. And today is her 57th birthday....

I am grateful for being able to just sit and enjoy the company of my loved ones, friends, neighbors and chosen family. I don't get a large group of people together like that often and its wonderful.
