Thankful Thursday

Click the picture for more Thankful Thursday participants

  • I’m thankful that my dear son Matt, who got sick with the bad case of bronchitis, is recovering now.
  • I'm thankful for a pediatrician, who was so gentle and understanding and who prescribed medications for Matt.
  • For the medicines that ease his condition.
  • I’m also thankful for things like camphor and eucalyptus. They are so useful; and their scent not only soothes my son but me as well.
  • I'm so grateful for my family, for helping me care for my son. I couldn’t have imagined taking care of him all by myself.
  • For the strength God gave me during the harrowing days he was sick. I was sleepless and I had missed some mealtimes, but I survived.
  • For the person(s) who organized the SPArty. A relaxing massage was just what I need after those stressful four days when I stayed 24H with Matt - carrying him and rocking him to sleep. And the timing couldn't have been perfect! Plus, everything -including an all-natural facial session- was all for free. Wonderful!
  • For the change of work sked I had. My restdays now are Sundays and Mondays. This means I can go to church regularly and that I don’t have to make hurried exits during family affairs, usually held on a Sunday.
  • For the friends I have in the Blogosphere who take time to visit and send heart-warming messages.
  • For Crystal, for hosting the Thankful Thursday.

I'm so glad Matt is feeling better! Hailey seems to be getting sick all over again, so I was up most of the night with her. I just hate these times! But, I'm so happy to hear your baby is getting better.
