Good morning! Happy Black Friday! Happy hunting to you if you are out and about shopping for good deals today. Me, I choose to sit here at home and let the deals find me. I've never been a Black Friday shopper...totally hated it the two times I've gone...so online sales make me happy.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving whether you spent it alone or with family and friends. Yesterday was also Thankful Thursday...and it fell on the biggest of Thankful days. Unfortunately, I didn't post yesterday so I'm going to share my list of thanks today.
I am thankful...
** for our daughter and son-in-law's negative Covid tests.
** that we were able to have dinner with our daughter's family yesterday. I wasn't feeling that thankful yesterday when after being there only an hour and a half, Tim said he wasn't feeling well and and came home. I stayed a little longer but then came home to check on him. I allowed my disappointment to fester, I felt kind of resentful toward Tim (he always puts off taking care of health issues, doesn't do what the doctors tell him, always gets sick when he's off and on holidays, etc.), and basically had myself a big old pity party.
** that God intervenes when we need him. This morning I repented of my crappy attitude and asked God to forgive me and to help me change my thinking. Then I opened the Bible study I'm doing and wouldn't you know...today's lesson was on contentment. Talk about an immediately answered prayer and why I can be thankful for yesterday.
** I was able to get a message to Tim's urologist this morning. He came home from work with a kidney stone. Not entirely out of the blue...we know his kidneys are full of gravel and the doctor was planning to deal with the larger ones after the new year. It was good to talk to her and get the real scoop because somewhere along the way Tim got the idea that she/someone in her office had said he could take 6 Aleve's every 3 hours! I didn't think that could be right and it wasn't. So since he already took 6 before he got home he's done with those and ibuprofen for the day. This afternoon he can have some Tylenol if he needs it. If the pain remains and the meds don't help, we'll be off to the ER tomorrow or Sunday.
** the Christmas decorating is done except for some outside lights and if they don't get done it won't be the end of the world.
** I don't have to cook today. Yay for leftovers!
** season 2 of Virgin River starts today on Netflix.
** for all of you!
