I am thankful for having four children who check up on me at least once a day. Either through a phone call or a visit. If they call and I don't answer, they start to call each other. "Have you heard from Ma at all today?" They all know my daily routine and heaven forbid should I decide to alter it at all. I always let them know if I plan on leaving the building and where I am going.
If there is anything I need or a place I want to go, one of them will change their plans to take me. They call and ask me if there is anything I may need at the store and want them to pick up for me. They always refuse to accept my money to pay for the items.
And most of all I am grateful that The Pirate has been straight for two years now. I don't have to worry constantly about getting "that call" in the middle of the night.
