Things I'm Thankful for Today

August 8, 2008

These are in random order

The shiney drop of dew on my windshield. It looked like a diamond.

I'm thankful that the old blind guy made it across the street this morning and didn't get squished by the cars whizzing by him.

I'm thankful for my charger for my laptop especially when I'm in the middle of this!

I'm thankful that Danni is moving a little better today.

I'm thankful for her pain meds.

I'm thankful that the nurses are kind and they allow me to be back in ICU with Danni.

I'm thankful for this blog and the work God is doing through it.

Thank you, God, for my loving husband.

Thank you for doctors and hospitals and nurses who are willing to give so much of their lives to the care of others.

I'm realizing this could go on and on. I have so many things to be thankful for...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for Jessi and Atlee.

I'm thankful for Jesus.

My friends

My mom and dad.

My honest, loving Christi,
I just read your last two blogs a few minutes ago. I (like many others) broke down while I read (and felt) your anger and frustration. I prayed out loud to God and Jesus and asked them to guide me to some words that would bring you comfort. I closed my eyes and cried for you, for Danni and for your family and begged Him for help. I opened the Bible, opened my eyes and there was Psalm 143. Please read all of it. It always amazes me how that works. You are one special lady...and Danni is one special young woman who is sooo lucky to have you as her mom. Anything you need ok? We're praying for all of you.
Love, Me

I just read your blogs from yesterday and today. Pete told me yesterday that I need to read, and told me a little of what it said. I put it off until now, Why u ask, probably because I knew if you were hurting I also would be. I too, felt your frustration and anger. I have to admit, I am probably selfish, I do want little Danni to be okay. I know she is not, but it pains me to see the little girl who used to knock on my door to see if Josh can play or the little girl who ate at my house because mom was having seaweed (ha ha), in so much turmoil. And I do ask God WHY? Why Danni and Why Christi? But, I know He has a plan, and it always isn't what we want, but He will help us thru. You are strong! And it is okay for you to be angry. We don't know what you are going thru, but in our prayers we lift all you up! You know I am here. Psalm 136 says "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.
In love and prayer, Jaime
