Thankful Thursday

I'm a day late, but I really wanted to write this one! I signed up for Thankful Thursday a couple weeks ago and every Thursday slipped by and I just forgot! I didn't want to forget this one.

I realized today as I started to write this... It's hard to be thankful when things don't seem to be going the way we want them to be going. I'm sick right now. Very sick. I've been sick for a week now. It started as one thing (sinus infection-type) and turned into something else (SEVERE sore throat, courtesy of my husband). So. I'd love to write a post about how I'm thankful for my health, or something warm and fuzzy like that, but I can't. I can, however, be thankful for the things that are allowing me to not completely lose my mind right now. Like throat spray. Lidocaine gargle. Ibuprofen. Throat drops. You get the picture ;-) Oh, and babysitters!

You see, I was supposed to have clinical at the hospital today, and my kids were supposed to go to the babysitter. Normally, if my husband or I stay home for any given reason, the kids stay home too. This morning, my husband was sweet enough to bring me orange juice, oatmeal (so I could take ibuprofen), water, AND he still took the boys to our babysitter. :-) And I slept. I didn't sleep much last night, so I made up for it by sleeping till 1:30 when my boys came home.

So I'm thankful. For drugs, for comfort measures, and for my boys. The big one who's taking care of me, and the little ones who have been so sweet, giving me kisses, and telling me they love mama :-)

    My name is Jodie Wolfe. I am in the process of researching for a book I would like to write that addresses ten struggles that Christian women face. I would love to have your input as well. You can respond via email or my blog:

    Thank you for any help you can give me. All I need is the list of ten things as well as your age.
