Thankful Thursday

Today is Thankful Thursday and I am incredibly thankful for everything that has happened the last few weeks. The bible says Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything, Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 (NLT) Yes, I started 2010 off on the wrong foot with pinkeye and then tearing a muscle in my lower back/hip. But, hey, I have Jesus, good friends and family. God said slow down and if this was the only way I would listen well, so be it. It has for me a very painful and scary month. I refuse to sit and feel sorry for myself. I am so much better now. All of your prayers helped. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Although I have recovered for the most part, I still need help in the morning to get dressed. DH has been there for me every day taking care of me and the house. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful caring husband. I am thankful for being able to get out this morning. Yay! After a month of staying in the house, sitting, not being able to move much, I managed to get out, get my hair done and eyebrows waxed. It felt wonderful! My hairdresser also rubbed the back of my neck with lavender oil. This felt amazing! Between the smell of the lavender oil and the massage on my neck, when I got home I literally fell asleep in the chair. I was so relaxed. I am thankful for the sun that has been peeping in and out so far today. There is nothing like a bit of sunshine on a very cold snowy day to boost the spirit. I am ready for spring. How about you? I am thankful for my father. He went in for surgery on his back yesterday for a spur and now they say he may have had a heart attack as he had to go off his heart meds a few days before his back surgery so his heart is now a concern. Would you please pray for my father? I know at times I tend to worry more often than I should, but I have seen lately when I give my concerns and worries right to God, he gives me peace and my eyes are open to what I should be thankful for and that is a wonderful feeling!
