Thanksgiving Thursday

Playing along with Thanksgiving Thursdays now at Elyse. (You can still click the button above)

It has been way too long! With the court case and the pig etc, it's been more than a month since I have played along.

Indeed, today I have a lot to be thankful for:

1. Firstly to you, my blogging friends, for your very kind and supportive comments on Tuesday, and above all for your prayers.

2. I am so thankful that both Hunter and I are doing better and that no hospital stay was involved. In no way are we 100% there, especially him, but he has returned to work yesterday and did ok.

3. The puking has stopped! Hallelujah! The pooping is another matter, but I can deal with it.

4. I am so thankful that Lucy and my mom could help us through our 3 days of isolation and after when we were so weak.

5. For a great visit with my cousins that live in our neighbouring country Namibia and their two kids. Lucy was their nanny before she came to us and it was such a joyful occasion to all get together last night. (And silly me, took no pictures! - could not find the camera)

6. Slowly getting back into work and the help and co-operation of my partner and staff.

7. The get well emails and calls from our clients and their support.

8. Some great books that I read while sick last week - I am planning to do 3 reviews on my book blog soon.

9. I have just met a twin mommy in Brooklyn Mall who has twin girls just a month older than my boys and a son about a year younger than The Little Miss. We just started talking and live very close to each other. Here's hoping for a new friend. For that prospect I am thankful.

10. And yes, Spring has sprung! Yeah! Although we will still have a cold spell, this is definitely Spring.


  1. What an exciting list to be thankful for!

  2. Great post! Glad your spring has sprung! I am looking forward to our Fall. Such a funny world!

  3. You're lucky Spring has sprung. It is COLD here. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  4. Health is a great thing to be thankful for:-)

  5. that is so awesome that you met a new friend. I hope that it grows into something good for both of you. There is nothing like talking to a person who knows what you are going through.

  6. Glad that you are feeling better! I can't imagine being sick with H1N1 AND having sick kids to boot! It was tough enough having JUST my husband sick!

    This was a great post. Happy Spring! :) (Funny that I say this as I am just about ready to cut back my flowers and prepare for the snowfall!)

  7. What a great list! Glad spring has sprung for you :)

  8. What a great list of things to be thankful for. Love spring.

  9. SOooo glad to hear some positives from you! yeah! Thank goodness you and Hunter are doing better!!!

  10. Yeah! Glad you are all feeling better. Praise God for no hospitals! Spring? I'm so ready for fall. Love enjoying seasons at different times than you. Too fun to see life on the other side of the world.


So what's on your mind?
