Thanksgiving Thursday - Poor Little Chick

"Give thanks each day for the air that we breathe and the loved ones who share each moment with us. They are the greatest of blessings!" ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has not been feeling well for five weeks and we found out today that she has Mono. The poor thing has been through so much between that virus for two weeks and the endless cold, sinus infection and ear infection. She has been a strong brave little angel through it all and I am so proud of her!
Here are my five things I am thankful for:

1.) Little Chick and my family
2.) For knowing why my daughter has been so sick and tired.
3.) For the crisp air this Autumn and the delicious smell of pumpkin muffins and apple cider.
4.) For all the luxuries in life I may at times forget to give thanks for: a car, comfortable home, being a stay at home mom, technology and being able to afford things, and my tasty Starbucks Cafe Mocha or coffee each day.
5.) My music collection! I love listening to my Autumn music now, as well as Little Chick's Pooh Bear CD. We listen to a variety of music each day!

It is always great to break out Trader Joe's pumpkin muffin mix on a day when Little Chick is ready for an easy baking treat! She has been exhausted, so I thought this would be perfect! She was so happy!

  4. I'm so glad they figured it out and it's not something super scary. She really has been such a trouper, mono is not fun at all. And all the other stuff she's had on top of it. Do they think she will start to feel better soon? She looks like such a good helper in the kitchen, those muffins look yummy!

    Thank you for your encouragement on my blog, it really means a lot! xo

  10. Oh no! As difficult as that must have been to hear at least you now know and your sweet thing can finally start to mend. What a rough patch she hit.

    So sweet that she still has her joy to bake with the way she must be feeling.

    Sending lots of hugs your way!

  14. Well, I guess it's a relief to find out what it is - nothing more frustrating than when you know something's wrong, but don't know what it is. Hope she's better soon.

    And hey - what a baker!

  16. Poor Little Chick. I'm so glad you found out why she hasn't been feeling well. Hopefully now, after some much needed rest and relaxation, she can eventually start to feel better...like her sweet little self. I'll have to admit though, it sure does look like making pumpkin muffins may be just what the doctor ordered :)

  17. Oh, Sweetie!!!! I'm so sorry Little Chick!!! Oh, Honey. My heart hurts for you right now! And even through it all ... a smile for the pumpkin muffins. She is one special girl. HUGS and HUGS and HUGS to her. (And you, too, Mama Hen!)

  31. I am glad you were able to figure out why she has been so tired, although I wish it wasn't Mono. At least you gave her a "Sunnyside" with some muffin making! Send one my way please! Here's hoping for rest and recovery coming your little gal's way! :)

  32. Bless her little heart, that cute little baker of yours! Mono is horrid, our daughter had it once. She had to keep very quiet, not overdo it, or I guess it can get pretty serious.

    Praying that she gets better and beats this nasty thing!

    she will be in my prayer.

  34. Poor thing! I hope she feels better soon! I am happy that you now know why she hasn't been feeling well! Can you believe that I actually forgot that today was Thursday LOL! It just goes to show you that I am still not with it LOL. I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!

  35. Oh, poor Little Chick! It's not fun having mono. And once you get it, you can get it again when you overdo it. My son and my brother both had it years ago and when they get too stressed it reminds them to slooooow down.

    When my daughter was sick we spent a lot of reading time together and when I had to do household chores she had a little playhouse that I put in bed with her.

    The kids always thought it was special to be sick because I served them meals in bed on a bed tray my husband made in highschool and they got a little black and white TV in their room (back in the day when everyone didn't own 200 TVs!) and lots of special attention from mom. They still talk about it now! Go figure.

  36. Look at that little baker in action!

    Wishing little chick a speedy and quick recovery.
