Happy Echidna Day

James the Echidna

We are celebrating Echidna Day today. It is our special day for giving thanks and counting our blessings. Echidna Day is a family time, but it came about as a way to stay focussed on the happy things, like an echidna wandering into our yard, rather than the day the dreaded phone call came with Amelia's CF diagnosis.

You can read all about what Echidna Day is on this post from last year.

We hope you have a happy day today. Take some time to count the blessings that you are surrounded by and give thanks for what you have.

I am thankful for another year of joy and tears. I am thankful for the great health Amelia has enjoyed this year. There has been just the normal coughs and colds. Our children are growing older and understanding more about all areas of life (and Amelia's CF) which can make explaining things to them difficult at times. I am thankful we can help them understand things even though it's difficult. I am thankful for children who support and love each other (even when they fight). I am especially thankful God blessed me with such a wonderful and supportive husband. We have trials in our life, but we are so blessed too.

So what are you thankful for?
