Here are some things that made me thankful/smile this week:
~ Revival! We have been blessed this week to have had Revival Services at our Church with Derek Baker and Kirk Hacker. After the normal "sermon portion" of the evening we then had a "discipleship" class in the social hall where we learned more about how to handle different scenarios we might come across when witnessing to people. It was quite interesting. I'm glad that I got to be a part of the experience :)
~Our Veterinarians! I mentioned last week that we found a kitten under our porch and we named her Dusty. She had some issues with going to the potty and got a blockage. Our vet kept her for days working with her. Dusty got to come home Saturday but Tuesday morning when I woke up I discovered she had passed away during the night. She was so tiny that her chances were not good for survival. I am thankful for everything the vet did to help her and also for the discount that was given for their services. It just wasn't meant to be...
~Our Veterans! Not to be confused with veterinarians are our Veterans. Yesterday was Veteran's Day here in the USA. I am proud to say that my Dad served in the Armed Forces so it is a big deal for us. Our Church's Youth Group usually has a dinner to celebrate the Veterans, but due to COVID we had to cancel the dinner. Instead, we sent our local Veterans gift cards for the diner in town. We wanted to make sure to still show our appreciation. Thank you to all those who have served and are still serving! God Bless the USA!
~A Negative! Laken wasn't feeling well last week so after a few days of her not feeling up to snuff, I called the pediatrician. She recommended a COVID test. Sigh. So we waited for 5 hours at Medexpress for her turn to have the test administered on Friday. We quarantined while waiting for a call with the results of the test even though she was feeling better. Thankfully, the call came in Monday around noon that Laken was NEGATIVE for COVID!
~Groceries! I know this seems like a strange thing to be thankful for, but after quarantining, we were getting to be like Mother Hubbard's Cupboard in the food department. We still had plenty of food, don't get me wrong. We were just out of the favorites and go-to's. We were down to the foods that would take effort to prepare and you would have thought it was the end of the world with "nothing in this house to eat"! Thankfully, I was able to make a grocery store run and stock back up on the "essentials". :)
What are you thankful for this week?
