The other night, I went to sleep wondering, "What am I thankful for?" I quickly realized that I was so very thankful to God for sustaining us. This has been a hard year, but He kept us throughout it all. We have even been spared long-running illnesses. Michael got a cold last week, ate a lot of chicken soup, and seemed fine within a couple of days. David caught it before Michael lost it totally, but he got over it too, within a few days.
David has been attending college since May. He has been doing very well, getting all As, except for one B, on tests and assignments. His GPA must be pretty good. He studies nearly all his spare time.
Michael and I have been doing homeschool in a variety of different places since ... from the college, to the library, at home, and other places too. Last week, we were even invited to participate in a field trip of third graders from a nearby school, that were going to tour part of the training rooms for healthcare students at the college. A few weeks ago, we caught a homeschoolers' field trip to our local library too.
On the weekends and during 2 days a week, I have recently started working full time. I had applied at a local store that I could walk to, should our car break down or we encounter bad weather, but they did not respond in a timely manner. Therefore, I told my current boss at the studio that I could work more, with hours available at this time of year. I work all day tomorrow and each of the next few days, either all day or a partial day. After December, I will need to track down another job, working full time to get benefits, but for now, I'm set with tons of hours at the studio. I will continue working at the studio, after December, but at reduced hours and only one partial day per week.
My mother came down to spend the day with us, so I'll cut this entry short. I hope that anyone reading this (if anyone does anymore) has a Happy Thanksgiving, and is thankful to God for their blessings.
