A lot to be grateful for

You know that shower I was talking about, well, the mother to be could not be in attendance because she was in labour! So as of today, our district welcomes a bouncing baby boy! Talk about timing! Welcome little one, you are loved!

Maybe I should have gone, because after I had put our Thanksgiving turkey in the oven and was cleaning up a bit, I bent over to plug the vacuum in and threw out my back! Great. It took me about 15 minutes to get off the floor and to the phone to call my dh to get back home to help me out. So after half a back pill, thermal wrap and a glass of wine, the dh and I put on a lovely feast.

So I'm grateful for these things:

1) the good fortune to have lots of good food to eat
2) my family
3) a special thanks to my hubby who always makes me laugh and pampers me when I'm not well
4) my health (as painful as it is right now)
5) good friends (that includes you all out there in blogosphere; I saved a place at the table for you all)
6) on-line Scrabble
7) the ability to pick up things with my toes

I've got to be better in 2 days, because I'm on set on Thursday and I have to be able to move without being in pain or hunched over. And of course, hubby leaves tomorrow for a business trip.

I love it when the universe just pushes you to grow.

Good list! But, ouch, a vacuum injury -- helped along I'm sure by the turkey move. Hope you're back in fighting form soon...!

pushines you to grow... nicely put. I'd love to think of the obstables we face as really a challenge to grow. I'll have to this in my weaher moments (of which I've had several lately)

Nice list though. When our Thanksgiving comes up next month I'll have to think about what goes on my list this year.

Great instinct. When things seem icky, count your blessings. It's a good way to turn things around.

At least I hope it was for you. You up and around?
