Oh how loath you. I wish you were gone. I do so desire that you all together did not exsist.
So we experienced a beautiful Spring like sunny weekend here. All three days of which I spent inside experiencing one of the worst stomach bugs I can remember since college. Whew! It was a doosey.
There’s nothing quite like a debilitating and thankfully fleeting illness to make me incredibly thankful for day to day health.
Lots of other things to be thankful for:
-I got sick Friday night, so Hubby was home to take care of me all weekend and didn’t have to take any time off.
-Hubby took care of me 🙂
-Hubby and Little Man both are still healthy and haven’t caught it. Please, if you are a praying person, pray that God in His mercy might spare them this bug.
-I had a home and bed and bathroom to rest in while I was sick!
-We had the resources we needed to purchase everything that was helpful in my recovery, which consisted all together of ginger ale, Emetrol, and ‘whole wheat’ saltine crackers. 🙂
-That this is only the second time I have been sick this season and Little Man has only been sick once with a cold! Hooray!
Really the list goes on and on.
See I’m trying this new thing, where instead of complaining in my heart when something is uncomfortable/painful/less than ideal/etc., I attempt to list off as many things as I can think of that I have to be thankful for in that very moment, as compared to the few things that are in the way of my personal agenda.
Due to the fact the my personal agenda almost NEVER has scheduled time for exhaustive flu bugs…I had a lot of time to practice this weekend 🙂
I kid about this practice of gratitude in the face of opportunities to complain, being a new thing. I have been attempted to create a habit of gratitude for several years now.
So this weekend was just a God given tool, to strengthen His gratefulness in me.
I hope everyone else had an restful weekend as well 🙂
Please do excuse me though, if I fall of the face of the planet for a few days to regain composure…
