Loved this challenge Jess posted yesterday on the DD blog... thanks for the opportunity... er... kick!... to jot these five things down!
These are five specific things that I (the mom) am grateful for because they have made my daughter happy 2000 miles away from home!


Grateful for Jana... whose kids adore you and who's been your 'mom' away from home.
Grateful for soccer... specifically the UM club team... the competition and the great girls!
Grateful for Sara, Alyssa and Lauren... new friends from your dorm and soccer.
Grateful for the 'U'... professors and advisors who care and a great major department.
Grateful for your job... close and convenient with flexible hours; it provides spending $$$.
