Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for my nephrologist. I have only been seeing him since September and love him, but yesterday I had to go in to discuss the migraines and what my options are for pain relief. While I was there he was asking me how things were going in general and he asked about Joe(which was so nice) and I told him he had lost his job. We chatted for a few more minutes and then he gave me a bunch of samples so I wouldn't have to buy any meds. He walked me to the waiting room and I went to hand the receptionist my check for my $50.00 co-pay and he told me to put it away. I tried to insist, and even handed the check to the receptionist but he shook his head firmly and said "No. Put it away. I'll see in you 4 months, unless you need me sooner."

I burst into tears. Right there in the waiting room. Nice.
How did I get so lucky to have such a compassionate, caring doctor? So grateful for him.

I am thankful for the weather we have been having the last 2 days. Today it was sunny and 80 degrees. We're supposed to have rain this weekend but on my day off yesterday it was simply beautiful.

I am thankful for weekend trips. On Friday evening I will be boarding a plane to go visit my Sees-ter and niece and nephew(my brother in law will be out of town) for the weekend and while there we will be attending the Scrapbook Expo all day Saturday. Of course I am thankful to my Sees-ter for the ticket, as I would never be able to have afforded it on my own right now.
I am thankful for my husband. He put on this silly hat and let me take a picture of him just to humor me and he doesn't care who was looking at him while he did it(and he totally got a few strange looks). You know what he did? He looked right at them and smiled and said "Hello".

What are you thankful for?
