Thankful Thursday #10

This week I am thankful for...

  • The professionalism and kindness of the staff at the Medical Genetics Center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh while my son and I were there for testing.
  • The kind and caring staff at TriRivers, Inc., during the many visits my daughter had dealing with a broken wrist.
  • The good news that Cassandra, my daughter, is almost completely (90-95%) healed.
  • The dystonia and "lock jaw" my son suffered through passed by relatively quickly (one day).
  • The kind and respectful words a man told me today about the job that I am doing as a single parent.

Wordless Thursday

A friend of mine took the picture and, no, they didn't know the shark was behind them.

Tuesday Toot

I've been wanting to join this meme for some time, but, unfortunately, forgetfulness and a busy life keep getting in the way. The fact that I finally remember is a toot all by itself.

The good news of the week...

  • I decorated the Americana/Memorial Day/July 4th tree.
  • My daughter's wrist is finally almost completely healed. (90% healed according to the doctor last Friday.)
  • My son got an A on his Spelling test.

Whoo hoo for the Litz family!

Eat healthy this summer

Summertime ...and the living is easy, the fun is frequent, and the food is often full of fat! Hamburgers, hot dogs, ice get the idea.

What about at your house? Have unhealthy pounds crept up on you and your kids? Before you start thinking “diet” – reframe your thoughts to “healthy lifestyle” instead.

My 7 facts; some funny, some sweet, all about me...

3. I hate being 40 years old.
4. I have a fun, strange, sweet, dry, silly sense of humor.
5. I was a sweet, innocent girl (no laughing) until my senior of high school. Then, the bad attitude of hormones kicked in... (lots of stories here).
5. My children are the most important thing to me in the world.
6. My friends are my chosen family.
7. I love my Mt. Dew. I drink approximately 5 cans a day. Yes, my doctors know. I was told that I could reduce the amount but I could never stop drinking it all together because it would have adverse affects on my body.

Family Minute #24

Today is Memorial Day... let’s remember and give thanks.

Memorial Day recognizes the men and women who have died in war. With American troops stationed all around the world, it’s important to acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who defend our country. On this Memorial Day let us not forget those heroes who, over the years, have unselfishly sacrificed their lives to give us peace and freedom. Show your respect and gratitude to the military by helping their families.

Remember your family first.
