Thankful post for yesterday and today....

As of yesterdays' happenings, I was having a hard time being thankful. Sounds horrible, but it's true. So yesterday the thing I was thankful for was rest and sleep. Rest that lets your mind be at ease and not worrying. I was thankful to go to bed no longer wondering who our next President would be. I was thankful for sleep that let my mind and body rest and not be in dismay. Yes, sleep was the highlight of yesterday for me (I took a long nap with Kara!!).

Today I will say I am thankful for hope. I am thankful that hope lives in me. I am thankful that I have hope for tomorrow, next year, and the future beyond that. I am thankful that I can rise above being scared for our nation and can hope that good will come to us all. Hope is a wonderful thing. Today I am very thankful for the hope in my life.

PS. I have a few pics of the monkey to share. She's such a little doll.

Laying on daddy's shoulder at the Halloween party. Aww!

Sitting with mommy in front of the Halloween display.

Trying her first taste of funnel cake at a festival!

She wrapped herself up in the blanket. Recognize it Aunt Sandi?

Kara and me at a castle ruins.

Just the three of us! Daddy and Kara at the castle ruins.

She and Chloe are becoming friends!

How can you not look at your sweet monkey's face and not have hope? She is a doll!
