Ten on Tuesday and the Giving Thanks Challenge

Ten on Tuesday and the Giving Thanks Challenge
can both be covered by this post, in which I list yet ten MORE things for which I am thankful!

  1. I’m thankful for the ready availability of medical care and medicine (in our country), when needed. Today I took Rebecca to the doctor because her throat has been so sore that she hasn’t been able to eat much. Turns out the old tonsils are swollen, pussy, etc. Poor kiddo!

  2. I’m thankful, too, for home remedies that help sore throats, such as gargling with warm salt water and drinking soothing hot tea. Our doctor has the good sense to recommend those things, in addition to prescribing medicines when necessary.

  3. I’m thankful that I don’t have labrynthitis, which is going around the staff at school. I laughed when someone first mentioned this sickness, thinking it meant the tendency to get lost in mazes.

  4. I’m thankful that our daughter and her children are staying healthy, even though the rest of us aren’t. It’s just so sad when really little ones get sick.
  5. I’m thankful for public libraries, which provide ready access to plenty of good books. I’m reminded of this blessing because we ducked quickly into the library to replenish Reb’s stack of books to keep her occupied during this ‘down’ time.

  6. I’m thankful to be ‘on the mend’, well enough to care for my family.
  7. Loving autumn as I do, I just have to mention that I’m thankful for a temperate, blue-skied day today. There’s just nothing like that refreshing autumn crispness in the air!
  8. I’m thankful for excellent quality coffee beans, available at a reasonable price.
  9. I’m thankful for Brown Sugar Cinnamon Macchiatos, especially the way they are made at Woods Coffee.

  10. I’m thankful for the privilege to come to God as my Heavenly Father, through the mediation of the Lord Jesus Christ, casting all my concerns upon Him, knowing that He cares for me.
