Thankful Thursday

It's been an exhausting day, and at 10:00 p.m. I'm finally getting a minute to sit down and write a quick blog post before I crash. I hate to miss a Thankful Thursday post because I believe that it's really important to remain in a thankful mindset. So, although my eyes are not quite open all the way and I may nod off in the middle of this writing, here goes:
  • I'm thankful that Lucy is so far responding to her new asthma meds, and that her pediatrician has patiently walked me through the procedure for treating her.
  • I'm thankful that asthma is no longer treated with the shots I used to get when I was a kid because Lucy would freak the freak out. No lie.
  • I'm thankful that Mathilda is getting better (she has some little infection going on). At least I think she's getting better. Sometimes it's so hard to tell. 
  • I'm thankful that Mathilda has been at least 50% sweet and agreeable, to temper the other 50% of the time that she's been impossible to deal with this week. 
  • I'm thankful that I finally had my MRI today, my first ever, and it was really no big deal. It was actually pretty relaxing to have an excuse to just lay still and do nothing for a little while.
  • I'm thankful that I had my consultation with the oral surgeon today (three doctor appointments today!) and I have my appointment scheduled for my extraction. The doctor was really nice and put me at ease.
  • I'm thankful that somehow the timing of all my appointments worked out today, and I didn't have to wait for too long at any of them.
  • I'm thankful that my mom was available to babysit and pick the kids up from school today so that I could fit everything in.
  • I'm thankful to my fellow basketball/catechism moms for carting Bethany around so much lately, even though I am not often able to reciprocate. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned these awesome ladies before, but their fabulousness bears repeating. Pretty sure none of them read my blog, so I'm not just kissing butt either ;-)
  • I'm thankful for my fluffy down pillows. Can't wait to lay my head upon them in a few minutes.
  • I'm thankful for my Kindle. Turns out it particularly comes in handy for slipping in my purse to kill the time while waiting for doctors.
What are you thankful for this week?

I love your Thursday posts because it's so important to keep a thankful heart! I am thankful for 7 nights of my baby sleeping 10 hour clips. Im also thankful for a healthy home!
