~One huge pot of soup made by the facebook community since my husband (the family chef) is sick. I am grateful my facebook cookery friends are willing to give help to those of us with minimal cooking skills. After a few days of adding a dash of this and a pinch of that-- it finally tastes good! And I learned how to make vegetable beef soup, not vegetable beef bland soup.

~One kid that still has a staph infection, I am grateful it is not MRSA. I am grateful Dr. Williams knows my child's skin issues and changed his medications. After so many visits to see Dr. Williams because of he who gets contact dermatitis more often than he should, I'm grateful I no longer have to ask, "What is contact dermatitis and why does he keep getting it?" Now if he could just prescribe a bubble to hold the boy.

~One husband with bronchitis, I am grateful it is not pneumonia. I am grateful Dr. Williams stayed late this evening and worked my husband into his busy schedule. I am grateful I was able to have quiet time to read and finish my book as I waited for my husband at his appointment. I'm grateful that for a guy who can't match his socks, he sure does know his medicine!

~One meibomian gland (eye) blocked with an eyelash, I am grateful it wasn't pink eye (which is what I thought I had). I'm grateful Dr. Ryan could work me in within a few hours and remove that darn eyelash and relieve the pain. Let me just mention that Dr. Ryan did state that he had seen this only four times in his 30 years of practice. He said, "It's like winning the lottery." I'm grateful I have to go without my contacts for only one week and not forever. I'm grateful I have my funky, old glasses as a back up. I am.
|Who knew such a gland even existed?|
~One tire with a screw in it (after spending $10 on air), I am grateful I did not have a blow out going 64 mph (my usual speed on the open highway). I am grateful Trent's Auto Service was able to repair it on the spot after I limped up to their door this morning. I can't say enough nice things about the young man that worked on my tire. He was so kind, had a huge smile and was fast!
|Screws do not belong in tires!|
~One missed lunch with girlfriends due to stuff, I am grateful for the possibility of tomorrow. I'm grateful they are still my friends after I had to cancel lunch today. I'm the one who is usually not so forgiving when lunch is cancelled. I'm grateful one of my friends is willing to meet me tomorrow, right friend?
|A luncheon of days gone by.|
~One trashcan party that included two trash bags and three dogs, I am grateful the dogs didn't get sick from their party. I'm grateful the trash was splattered over only three rooms and not the entire house. I'm grateful my son usually checks behind me on most nights and puts the trash out of reach of the Trashcan Trio. Next time I'll make sure I go to bed first so I know the kitchen gets locked down properly!

I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings so that I may be grateful for new things in my week!
Today is now Thursday. Today I am grateful my darn dogs ate the unopened loaf of Martin's Potato Bread and not the homemade banana bread my sweet niece made for me yesterday. I don't even know HOW they found it up in the cupboard. Strange things happen after I go to bed. I'm grateful I have three dogs to constantly keep me on my toes, entertained and loved.
|At least it's not the banana bread.|
