Spontaneous Gratitude for a not-sick day

I know I just had one of these, but I have to have another. I have been sick. Let me rephrase, I made myself sick. Ate things I knew I could not eat, and ended up with nasty tummy stuff and a migraine for the last three days. It stunk! But tonight, I feel better. Good enough to clean, and cook and do all of those things that a mama is supposed to do. And I have never been so grateful to feel healthy in my life! It is one thing when you come down with something and you get sick, but it is a whole other thing when you eat something you know may make you sick... and then it does. Guilt wrapped up with feeling like crap. Just not a good combo. So here is my spontaneous gratitude post for this evening... and then I will be going to watch the double feature with my family.

Fun games that teach.
(I made this die by coloring each side the same color as the glass pearls. We rolled and Logan found the color and put it on the puddle of the same color.)

Good mail.

Popcorn with brewers yeast, dried basil, and sharp white cheddar.

The world's best soup for a cold and rainy day.

More crafts for Rainbow school.

Oh Man,,, Dare I ask what you ate that your body hated so much?
Its scary to think that we try so hard to stay away from bad things, but sometimes we do it to ourselves anyways.
I am glad you are feeling better,
P.S. What kind of soup did you make?? It looks delish

Hope you are feeling better, it is nothing like a time with a lack of health to make us grateful for it!
That is a great game idea, I will be doing that with JH!
I need that soup recipe...YUM!

Okay- yet again our kids are watching the same movies! We have been watching lots of 80's movies ourselves. Last summer was Back to the Future. This summer was Ghostbusters.
P.S. Can't wait to try out the soup recipe & I wish you lived closer too. We'd love for our bunnies to live in such a wonderful home (we checked on them tonight & now think we have 7-8!)

Wählen Sie Ihr Gift: I had a couple of things. Junk food hates me. In all forms, and that day we were out and about and i just ate what was around. Even though I knew it would make me sick. It took me down. I am still having headache issues, although I am TONS better.

Katie and you both asked for this: The dinner I made was Pasta E Fagioli
