My morning gratitude for:
- The young adults at Southwest Central Church of Christ, who have sustained me and strengthened me and been my foundation as I have become a chaplain. They have been so supportive and become ‘friends’ in the best way possible.
- HEB pre made Thanksgiving meals. Yep, this year we bought our Thanksgiving dinner for $70 (for 6-8) instead of cooking it ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking and baking. But this year I have a 16 month old who is having separation anxiety and prefers to climb in the oven rather than let me cook in it. So, it’s safe to say given the situation- a Thanksgiving full of a wailing child who can’t play with the oven I am using or after an exhausting sleepless night or having my son desire me to hold him for at least three straight hours because he’s afraid I will put him down- I would rather have someone else make the meal. Period.
- The gift of a beautiful sunrise!
- Conversations with kids. I love having good chats with kids in the hospital!
