Thankful For :: 651 - 660

First off, thanks for all the kind comments and concern on my {Sniff, Sniff} post - I meant it more as a humorous diatribe about coming down with the common cold, but I appreciate your get well wishes too! I'm happy to report that I am on the mend - although I have a feeling that this nagging hack might hang around long than I would like.

Whatever the case, being sick caused me to be thankful for good health when we have it, and appreciate the fact that all we were dealing with was a cold - nothing more serious. In fact, Peter went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago for a physical and he had some blood work done and everything came back totally normal. When we went to check out, the desk clerk looked at his chart and then said, "Wow, you must be really healthy - he doesn't want to see you again for a YEAR! We never see that." Praise the Lord for good health!

This week I'm thankful for...

651. A good report from Peter's physician

652. OTC cold medicine that helped me breathe through my nose

653. Citrus-flavored cough drops

654. Having two (scheduled) days off from work mid-week to help me recover

655. Hot tea

656. Overall good health with no serious medical issues - what a blessing!

657. No longer needing #652 to breathe

658. Those C.S. Lewis "You too" moments in conversations

659. Realizing, once again, what a blessing and treasure I have in my husband

660. Humor at the holidays (see video)
