I am thankful that Heaven is sweeter today than it was 13 days ago. I am thankful that I do not greive as one who has no hope. I am thankful that one day I will see my family that have gone before me. I am thankful to have known the man Ronnie Wood and call Dad. Eventhough my heart is heavy with sadness, I am THANKFUL.

The evening started out very nice, I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and Madeline and Rebekah were playing very happily with a pick blanket. Then I ask Madeline to go get something out of my bathroom and she takes off eagerly to help but forgets that Rebekah was still holding on to the blanket. BAM! WAIL! Rebekah's forehead went right into our door frame. NO I did not see the goose egg right away. It seemed to appear out of no where. When I initially looked at her forehead I could have sworn there was no bump but a few seconds later when I looked again there it was in all its glory. I do not do bumps on the head very well and needless to say I freaked out. I sent Madeline to her room with a holler, she was in tears by the way shouting "sorry, I'm sorry." I called Kelly and told him what had happened and that I was on my way to Sonic to get some ice. Then I called my friend Elissa, who is a RN to exploit her knowledge yet again. Thank you Elissa for being so understanding and letting me interrupt your dinner. All that said, Rebekah is fine, a bit of a headache though. She is playing patty cake and animal flashcards with Madeline. We know she will have at least 1 black eye as the goose egg goes down. I am sure I will not get too much sleep tonight but am thankful right now that it is just a goose egg and not worse.

Irony ~ [ahy-ruh-nee] ~ an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.

I just do not understand it. Day Light Savings Time comes to an end, I do everything right. I keep the girls up 1 1/2 hours later than normal and I even go to bed at my normal time to take full advantage of the extra hour of sleep and STILL my girls wake up at their normal time which in NOW 5:3Oam. UGH!

On the bright side, and there is one, Rebekah was making cute happy sounds and she could have been crying and fussing so there is something to be thankful for.
