Thankful… Or not

On this day of thanks I’m finding it hard to be thankful. I known how lucky we are. I have two gorgeous children, a warm and comfortable home and food on the table. However, all of this is shadowed right now by the cacophony of illnesses striking our family.
The least scary has been the over production of body fluids as we have struggled through the most recent snot extravaganza and stomach flu! Oh well, at least we might be a pound or two lighter for Christmas!
Next my other half has been diagnosed with a chronic illness, a painful debilitating condition which is causing great distress as he struggles to even pick up and hug our girls. Putting stress and strain on us all as a unit.
Finally my compassionate Mum, the one that gives everything to everyone is having to face her second battle with Cancer this year.
I understand we still have each other, I know we still have options and lives to lead, but I can’t help feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. Feeling down…. But not out!

    Keep your chin up! I know it’s hard but things will work out 🙂 You seem to have quite the sense of humour! I laughed at the snot extravaganza! 🙂 and like Sam, you ‘do’ see the silver linings! Lighter for Christmas! More room for stuffing! 😉 all the best!
