Today, I'm Grateful Because...

i'm slipping this one in just under the wire.  really, i should be sleeping.  i've been fighting off what i thought was a cold all weekend, and caved and called the doctor this morning...turns out, it's a sinus infection and bronchitis.  double whammy.  yay for me.

but i was laying in bed working on falling asleep and couldn't help but think about this post...i (rather unwillingly) went to work this morning and spent the hours of 9-2 in meetings, including my lunch break, which is when i normally would write this.  and i was thinking about last week's post and how it's important to praise god even when you don't feel like it...even when you'd rather be curled up under your covers.

so today, i'm thankful that my doctor was able to squeeze me in for a sick visit.  i'm grateful that i haven't given this bug to my dad.  i'm grateful for medicine that can fix these nasty little things in a matter of days.  i'm grateful for a boss who was happy to let me leave a few hours early.  i'm grateful for an earlier bedtime and a comfy bed that i'm about to crawl into.

and because i haven't mentioned it in a while, i'm grateful for the blogging community, cause you're all pretty awesome.  i'm linking up with ember grey for grateful heart monday today.  hope you'll join!

what are you grateful for this week?


  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! Sounds like a nasty sickness!

  2. feel better soon. you've been doing so much taking care of others...now take good care of yourself!!

  3. Hope you feel better soon!! xx

  4. Feel better soon, Betsy - I hope the extra time snuggled under covers helps you recover quickly!

  5. I'm commenting because I need to email you and this will remind me (??) to do after work!

  6. Hope you feel better!

  7. Dear friend, I hope you're resting!! If we lived closer, I'd be on my way over with some hot soup, a gossip mag (because SOMETIMES it helps, right?!), and maybe some NyQuil or something. haha. I hope you're feeling better, Bets! It's SO sweet that you linked up even when you were sick but you better be taking care of yourself! XO!
