Today I am thankful for a clean house...well, mostly. The couch is still loaded with clean laundry that needs folding. Hopefully I'll get to that tonight.
It's been kind of a downer day really. Today marks 12 years since my sister-in-law, Lori, was killed at the hand of her ex-husband. I can't believe it still. My children are just about the same ages as her children were when their world was turned upside down and inside out. I can't imagine their fear.
I am thankful for my mother-in-law who has suffered so but continues to get through each day.
I am thankful for my oldest daughter whose heart is so sensitive to others. She is singing in a Veteran's Day program tomorrow at school and is so excited. Luke is excited to watch Carleigh's program. I love them.
I am thankful for Cora's excitement when she sees me at school or when I return from something and she wasn't with me. Her Thanksgiving Day lunch was adorable.
