I am grateful for modern medicine this past week. I have had an infection, the start of which they aren't certain, though it has happened to me twice in four months in the exact same way. The antibiotics have made me feel dreadful, but without them, in years past I would have died. I am still recovering, and am also grateful for a warm home and bed to recover in, friends who care and pray for me, and God's infinite care.

I'm grateful that DF's coworker was trained in first aid and knew what to do when DF choked on a piece of steak at lunch today.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

I'm grateful for that too! I think many of us on E-hell have been enjoying "planning" your wedding, so we need to know that you are both okay!

I'm grateful to the doctors in the hospital last week, and to the technicians and nurses, who realized my sweet 95-year old MIL's heart was beating wayyyyyy too slowly and implanted a pacemaker and gave her great care before and afterwards. Without modern medicine who knows if she'd still be bringing joy to all of us.

Pretty scary moment for him.  And for me, when he told me.  I baked cookies last night for him to take to his coworker and I sent a Thank You card.  Where I thanked him for saving me the hassle of completing all the paperwork to collect DF's life insurance.  And then said, 'Hang on a second...'  DF laughed and thinks his buddy will laugh, too.

My family, and my family by marriage. They may be trying at times, but who isn't, and they have really stepped up in support of us as we become home owners.

I'm grateful for the laugh that gave me. ;D

I'm grateful for e-hell and the friends I have made here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I'm grateful every day for the wonderful example you set me, gmatoy, and for your continuing good progress.  I'm grateful, too, for eHell and finding an on-line community where I feel I belong [and want to belong].

I'm thankful for my family, my blended family and my extended family.  I love that no matter what mix gets together, so much laughter ensues until many sides are hurting.  I am thankful that when anyone has a crisis, not matter how big or small, everyone rallies to get things done for each other.  Then the crisis becomes 'just a glitch'.

Wonderful idea for a thread Cicero! (Bergen County born & raised here :) )

Looking forward to reading about your purchases when the library has the 'unlimited' sale... >:D

Good food, great friends, wonderful family, and a beautiful cool day.
