Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Thanksgiving {Gratituesday}

Thanksgiving {Gratituesday}

My new kettle!!
It seems like it has been forever since I have written a personal post.  I was on vacation until getting home on Sunday night. It feels good to be back home in the comfort of our apartment.

I am thankful for...

  1. My tea kettle.  On November 21st, I accidentally let our old kettle boil dry!  My husband told me to put it on my Christmas list, but I drink anywhere from 2-4 cups of tea/day.  I decided I was NOT going to wait until Christmas to get a new kettle, so I bought one the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  In case you were wondering, my current kettle whistles.
  2. My health.  On November 23rd and 24th, I was busy vomiting and having diarrhea.  [Sorry for the TMI, please remember I'm a nurse.]  But it made me thankful for the health I usually have.  I was thankful I got sick halfway on our journey instead of before leaving or the first hour or two.  My husband and I decided to keep trekking to PA.  
  3. My parents and siblings [and spouses].  They came to get Charis on Thanksgiving morning.  Drew and I were both sick.  I slept on the bathroom floor and Drew slept in the laundry room.
  4. My SIL and her husband.  Who were VERY understanding when I told them what I accidentally did to the carpet because I didn't make it to the bathroom on time.  It was after that vomiting incident I decided to sleep on the floor in the bathroom.  
  5. Rug Doctors and the fact that my SIL and her husband have one.  See #4.
  6. My in-laws. They are coming down this week to watch Charis since I work on Friday, and Drew is planning to work on his dissertation.  
  7. Amy.  My IRL friend.  I was able to see her last Friday [and her two boys] and buy some Christmas presents.  Double win!!
  8. Wolf Creek Yarns. My favorite yarn store.  I was able to go their twice.  I have most of the yarn bought for Christmas gifts.  Now I just need to knit them.  :-D
  9. Drew being able to stay in PA longer than we originally thought he would be able to stay.
  10. God.  He sustains and preserves me.  He has given me salvation and to Him alone I am thankful for all these things and people.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

What are you thankful for?
