This rarely happens in my house, since daytime TV is always crap. But not today. Today, from the minute I came downstairs from my bedroom and learned about the awful things that happened in Boston overnight, to just minutes ago, when the news came that everything was over, I was positively glued to my television.
And after watching everything happen today, I just feel so thankful. I'm thankful the suspects have been found and captured. I'm thankful for my country, and for the brave military and policemen that worked so hard. I'm thankful the wives and mothers and children of those men have the relief knowing most of them are out of harm's way, and can come home. I'm thankful for my family, and my husband, and my Ralphie. Most of all, I'm thankful for my faith. I'm thankful for God's forgiveness-- forgiveness offered to everyone, even those two men who did such horrible things.
I'm thankful for days like today-- the ones that help me realize that things like endless dishes in the sink and babies that won't nap-- those things aren't so bad. They're actually pretty great.
And gosh, I'm thankful for the weekend! I hope it's a happy one for all of us.
