I am so thankful!

Today I took my last medication. I’ve been on bedrest for ten days straight, but it has felt so much longer than that. Yesterday was the first day I started to feel “normal.”

My inability to do certain things during my recovery has made me thankful this morning for the little things that I used to take for granted:

  • I am thankful for being able to sneeze without pain
  • I am thankful for being able to swallow and eat
  • I am thankful for being able to talk and be heard
  • I am thankful for being able to ride in a car without getting sick
  • I am thankful for being able to walk without dizziness
  • I am thankful for being able to taste the flavor of the foods I eat
  • I am thankful for being able to open my mouth and brush my teeth
  • I am thankful for being able to clear my throat without gagging
  • I am thankful for being able to breathe
  • I am thankful for being able to sleep and dream

Sometimes I don’t think we take the time to really be thankful for the “little” things.

I am especially thankful for a husband who made numerous trips to the store for rice pudding. I thank God for him!
