Today I am grateful for:
- The fact that when I began to cry today because it hit me that I really just don’t like it here and how much I want to go home, my beautiful daughter came up and put her arms around me, said, “Awwwww… it’s ok, Mummy,” and gave me a kiss.
- That when E2 spotted her sister hugging me, she came running up too and, misunderstanding what was going on, climbed on my knee and started bouncing up and down and saying, “Wheeeeee!…” which brought me out of my funk for a few minutes and sent me into fits of laughter instead.
- That when my head was throbbing this afternoon from that kind of exhaustion that crying brings on, my husband told me to go lay down for a while, even though we had a ton of things to do. I left him to it and he carried on without me.
