A hard one to call

Sometimes, it's just pretty ard to be thankful. I hate to admit it, but today I am feeling like this one is hard. Our son, Duncan, who has special needs has begun getting suspended from school for behavior. Now, let me say he goes to a SCHOOL for kids with behavioral issues, so the idea of suspending him, throws me off a bit. Also learning that getting OUT of school for being bad isn't necessarily good!

However, I am trying not to think about the idea that they are going to kick him out, they are going to cause me to lose my business and makes it hard to keep hope alive when you keep falling over trip lines.

So I guess today I am thankful for my ability to stand back up when knocked down, although I would like to stop falling.
I am thankful for my friends, you know who you are, the ones i can call angry or sad or whatever about this and you always head my call! You guys rock!
I am also focusing on being thankful for THESE moments! THat face, his snuggles, his smiles....I work to keep those alive and keep the school from forcing us to drug him away.

So with all the hardship...>DUNCAN....that's what I'm thankful for!

Me? I am thankful Duncan has a mom as wonderful as you. And I gotta say, your face looks so tiny and thin!

What a handsome young man he is! I pray that everything will go well in regard to his school and that you will be OK with your business...Trials are SO hard but it sounds like you are handling this one well...Best of luck, you're BOTH in my prayers!
