to health!

Thankfulness Thursday is hosted each week by Rhondi. She has a beautiful blog, which I am sure you all would enjoy visiting.

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?

Thanks for the link to Rhondi's blog. It is just bee-yootiful! I've bookmarked it. It's a wonder you guys aren't all sick up there, with the crazy weather you've been having. Did I tell you I how much I love the picture in your header??

Hi Lim
I've added you to my post. Health is definitely something to be thankful for this time of year. I'm glad you're joining in this year.
Hugs, Rhondi

Health is definitely one, but there are SO many things it's hard to list them all. My post today is about my sweet husband, and I'm very thankful for him! :-)

Stay healthy! Everyone here has been passing one of those cold/flu bugs around!

You're right about there being a lot of sickness around. Good health is always something to be thankful for.
Hugs, Rhondi

My boys just got over the cruds; nothing is more appreciated than a full night's sleep when they are feeling better! I've been so thankful that it hasn't been worse for them this year.
(And I'm also glad to have found your blog!)

Stay well!

We are all healthy right now (thank goodness for 'flu shots) even though some of our friends are battling colds and coughs. This cold weather is tough.

Good health is truly something to be thankful for.

My family has been passing a cold around for about a week now. I think I may be getting a little of it...but I refuse to let it in. When I think of how others suffer with health problems I am always thankful that we are all healthy.

I'm grateful for health, too. It's important to try and stay on top of it.

Oh, you are so right about being thankful for our health. I recently went through a health scare for about three months. Every morning now I wake up so thankful.
