Thankful Thursday, Home Edition!

I was strong for my son when I had to be, now we are home, the house is quiet, Owain is sleeping and when I sat down to share this I started to cry. I was so scared when he wasn't getting better, when he wouldn't even talk to me, I thought "what if we have to go to UVa, what if he can't handle it." Now that I don't have to be strong anymore, I welcome the weakness. It is such a relief.

I am Thankful my little Owee is home and sleeping in his own playpen, in front of his favorite Blue's Room ABC's.

He has his PJs on, playing with his new bear waiting to go home.

Look at how happy he is!!

Outside and excited to be going home :)

A quick kiss from daddy and we are on our way.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a job, we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.

So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:

1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post please mention Welcome to the Nut House and so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.

Not every one has a blog, so:

2. If you don't have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.

3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, as a story, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

Have fun!

Welcome home little man! I got little teary eyed from that first picture with Daddy- you can tell he is SO happy to be going home! So thankful for you all that it was just croup and not heart related. I remember our scary time with the same situation just a few months ago. I know what a relief it is to be able to show some weakness after having to be so strong! You're continually in my thoughts and prayers!
