Thankful Thursday

I'm not feeling well.  I thought I was fighting off a sinus infection, but when I woke up this morning at 3 am with a fever of 103, I was convinced I had the flu.  I haven't had the flu in a decade or so.  I'm a nurse, so my immune system is rock solid!! :)  Anyway, now that my eyes are uncrossing (from the headache) and I'm feeling some better, I thought I would post a little thankfulness.  I'm still not sure if it's the flu or not, might be a rhinovirus, but it definitely seems to be viral--you know how we nurses are about diagnosing ourselves!lol

I am thankful for....

...being forced to slow down a bit.  I really needed it.

...managers who care about me and understand when I call in sick, which I rarely ever do.

...the small burst of "feel better" that allowed me to get a load in the washer and the bed made.

...a sweet hubby who took care of the baby all by himself this morning.

...for simple things like naps, tylenol, zyrtecD, sprite, gatorade, a big blanket, and  Cosby Show reruns!!

...for my Lord and Savior, who heals the sick (Mark 2- my scripture reading for today)

...for the GOOD news we received while having our taxes done this week.  Amazing!

...for answers to prayers!!

May you find yourself thankful for the simple things, and the amazing ones as well!!

  1. Hey Meredith...
    I am so sorry to hear that you are sick... I will check on you in a bit to see if you need anything, praying you get well soon and that no one else catches it!


  2. Praying for you to feel better very soon.

  3. so sorry you are sick. I have had a headache (which i NEVER do) and sneezing...etc. I have been telling myself it is just allergies - sure hope so. Pray that it is not the flu for you.
    Great list of thankfulness...

  4. God is indeed our great healer. May you indeed have a very good rest.

  5. Meredith, I hope you are feeling better! Thank goodness for Tylenol and Bill Cosby re-runs and the blood of Jesus that heals!
