thankful thursday

this is the day that the LORD has made! and in the midst of the whole family being sick and getting over being sick, today i am rejoicing and thanking God for the following:

1. a washing machine that is in my own home. i would hate to take pukey (yes, it's a word according to dictionary.com) clothes, towels, blankets to the laundromat.

2. the stomach flu. what a great way to clean your body out.

3. that ben got sick after he got home from work and not on his way home from work. mostly because he drove my car today...!

4. clorox wipes.

5. these thick, over-sized paper towels that ben got from an auction. seriously, while i've had a huge stack of them for the past three years i've never used them as much as i have in the last 3 days.

6. that the flu doesn't last as long as a head cold.

7. two indoor flush toilets.

8. linoleum, hardwood, and tile floors.

9. lysol. although i could definitely do without the SMELL of lysol. yuck!

10. that we're generally healthy. i think we can suck it up and be sick for a couple weeks out of the year!

Oh, it's good to be thankful for the little things (though not always easy)!! I think the invention of Clorox wipes is right up there with TV and sliced bread. :)
