Strength and Gratitude in Hard Days

Thank you for the kind, and supportive response to my venting. On hard days I often think of my ancestors. Strength comes from the record of their really hard days, not the easy days. I want to have the faith and perseverance they had. The saying comes to mind, "I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it." It is and will be worth it and some days I feel it's more worth it than others.

William came home today and we are thankful. We'll sleep in our own beds, eat non-hospital food, shower, wear clothes we didn't wear yesterday, listen to sibling squabbles and we are thankful. Did I mention Cameron threw up today and my washing machine broke?

Still thankful.
