Thankfulness...I am so thankful for many things, but for today I will focus on being thankful for health. People all around me at work this week have been sick! Not just little sniffley colds, but flat out in bed--or should be in bed---sick. Chest colds so bad that inhalers are needed, antibiotics being doled out for sinus infections, bronchitis, and in one case a coworker had an ear infection so bad that her eardrum burst. Yes, I love those co-workers who don't want to squander their sick leave.
Every year for the past several, I have had at least one bout with something so bad I end up in bed for a week or two. Usually I succumb to all the germs around the month of March--must be the time when my immune system just can't hang on anymore. Last year, between dental drama, throat and ear and cold drama, I felt cruddy the whole month of March. Two weeks of it where I landed in bed, flat on my back! This year I am determined not to have a repeat...Oh yes I am.
And so off to work I go again tomorrow, armed with my hand sanitizer, clorox wipes (for my work phone and desk area), vitamin C and lots of prayer!
How about you? What are you especially thankful for today?
