Well, after a nasty gallbladder attack late Wednesday evening and a trip to the doctor on Thursday followed by a comatose day on the couch, I’m back upright! Now I’ve got some catching up to do…
Thursday-I am extremely thankful for medicine and sweet nurses who hear how sick you are on the phone and work you in to see the doctor, who has a full schedule that day.
Friday-I’m thankful for my students and supervisor who were constantly checking on me and praying for me. I am so very lucky to work somewhere that isn’t just a job, but a life it seems. Coupled with this, I’m thankful my students make me laugh the way they do. I wouldn’t have expected to be dying laughing at the end of a twelve hour work day, nor would I have expected to be sliding across a gym floor in my sock feet, but I was…and I owe that to the awesome students I work with each and every day.
Saturday-Rest. Often times we take it for granted or cast it to the side. However, it’s something I am thankful for this morning, and many other days as well. I slept last night. Like really slept for the first time in weeks, without any medicine inducing it. And it was honest to goodness, rest. I woke up earlier than planned, but I was rested. Thankful that God saw that I needed some shut down time.
