Thankful Tuesdays: Still thankful

We've been on the road as hubby had to attend a conference across the weekend. Unfortunately, the boys have fallen sick, so we've been stuck in the apartment, hiding from the sub-zero temperatures. They have been feverish and coughing, and we had every intent to head back home. However, our home back in Germany is undergoing painting, so we decided to continue with the second leg of our trip, with the hopes that the warmer weather would help in the boys' recovery.

In the midst of dealing with puke (with no washing machine!), cranky kids and runny noses, I tried to take time to count those blessings, and found that there was plenty to be thankful for:

:: That my mum is currently visiting. We do get on each others' nerves very often, but she's been a great help, lending a hand with the washing and cooking and helping us with the kids. It helps to have an extra pair of hands since I'm also down with a cold.

:: We managed to spend a day exploring the Neuschwanstein castle before they fell sick.

:: For a place to stay and hide from the cold weather. And mountain views that remind me of how great God is.

:: For meds that help the fever & sniffles, and stuff to keep the kids occupied while coped up at home...

What are you thankful for?

Mum in the Making


  1. I am often in awe at the wonder of God's work when I'm out of the country and staring at rolling mountains and the vastness of the universe. Makes me relaise just how small I can be and how great and awesome He is :)
    Hope the boys are getting better.
