YAY!!!! It's Friday. Friday is the day of the week we look back at the week and talk about five things we are thankful for. If you are new here and want to play along, you can find all the details here. Be sure to add your website to Mr.Linky, and visit others who participate in this also.
1. Friday's. No matter how great our week was, it's always a relief when Friday gets here because it's the start to your week-end. I'm especially thankful for this weekend in that it is the last weekend before my surgery.
2. Nurses. I've been thinking about this A LOT during all my doctor and hospital visits. No matter how great your doctor's are, it's really your nurses that make your experiences. They are the ones who are actually taking care of you 90% of the time. And I must say...the nurses I've had during this whole experience have been AWESOME. They've spent so much time with me, answering questions, making follow up calls to make sure I'm feeling OK, and just being tremendous blessings to me throughout this process.
3. Baking. Baking has been my escape. It's my quiet time. My time to talk to God while creating delicious food. Give me a whisk and some prayer time and I'm good to go!
4. The weather. It's been so beautiful outside. I LOVE being able to sit on my back patio in the evenings, curl up under a blanket, and read while the kids are playing in the yard.
5. My husband. I know he is in my 5 almost every week, but I seriously can't praise him enough right now. He's taking on so much more responsibility around the house. Any time I ask him to do something for me, he drops what he is doing and does it. Through this process I've really had a lot of anxiety about how it will affect my kids, but he's been switching off every Friday and taking one of them to go do something one-on-one with him, and then on Saturday's taking them all to do something out of the house so I can get some extra rest. It's hard for me to not be able to be there for my kids 110% right now, and he's just really stepped up to the plate with giving them that extra attention that I normally give them. This process has just affirmed to me how strong we are as a unit.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend.
If you're from the Winslow area and will be going to the community fest this weekend, be sure to stop by the bake sale booth my mom and grandma are setting up to benefit Dawnetta. I'm making the blueberry crumb bread for it! :) We still don't have any real answers as to why her eye sight is not returning. She does have another appointment with the neurologist in Indy soon. So, please, keep her in your prayers as well!
