Thankfulness Week

As I hinted at in the last post, I've had a hard time being thankful and having a good attitude with all that's been going on lately. On top of the getting sick, I knew that coming back to the D.R. meant coming back to a dirty (micey, termitey, bat poopy, dusty, exhausty, etc.) house (we are looking for another place to move into). I realized that there's only one way to change my attitude, and that's by being thankful (I know I have a lot to be thankful for)! So, every day this week, I am going to post things for which I am thankful. This will remind me how much God has done for me and help me think of positive things to blog about. Please keep me accountable if I miss a day!

So, to kick it off:

Thankfulness in sickness:

-I am so thankful that Jeremiah's flu did not last very long and that he got better!
-I am thankful for my mom who helped me take care of Jeremiah and me.
-I am thankful for my dad who kept the heat turned up. :)
-I am thankful for my wonderful husband who took care of me and did all the things that needed to be done and carried most of our luggage and a baby around the airport and never complained about it.
-If we had gotten sick any later, I'm not sure that I would have had the energy to travel back to the D.R., so I am thankful for the "timing" of getting sick.
-I am thankful that I got sick in my parents comfy house in my pretty room that my mom worked so hard to decorate when I was in highschool (hey, if you have to get sick, you may as well have a nice view- when awake and aware).
-I am thankful that I am now healthy and that I was able to keep nursing Jeremiah during it all.
-God is good! (see, it's working already!)

This picture is not specifically related; I just thought you might want to see Jeremiah.
