Here are some of the things I am thankful for this week:
A new pillow
My parents were here over the weekend and we spent a lot of time with them, which was lovely. We went out to dinner with them a number of times, J and Dad played golf, Mum and I went shopping, I drove them to a quilting shop Mum really wanted to visit. One of the fun things I did with Mum was to make a pregnancy pillow. I'm normally a back-sleeper so switching to sleeping on my side has been a bit of an adjustment. I'd seen a few patterns on the Internet, but I already had a bit of an idea of what I wanted. I'd been sleeping with two extra pillows, one at my front between my knees and supporting my stomach, and the other at my back. But they were a bit flat and meant I took up a lot of room in the bed much to J's dismay. So I knew I wanted something to support my front and back, that was narrower and plumper than a normal pillow. Mum and I had fun making it up as we went along and here is the result. I am now, usually, sleeping much more comfortably (except for sore hips!).
I've said it before, but I love living in this community of Christian student families. This week I'm thankful that I can borrow things (like a sewing machine for that pillow!) and I can shoot out strange requests and the odds are that someone can help me. This week I need egg cartons for the craft at kid's club so I sent out an email to our community and got about five replies from people who had heaps of egg cartons! I had so much more than enough, thank you community!
