A Month of Thanks: Day 10

Psalm 136:1 "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever."

There are so many things to be thankful for today.

1. Wayne's MRI scan came back clear!! We don't have to go back until January for another MRI!! We are both thankful that God has chosen to answer us with a clear scan. He is good and faithful despite the results, but we are rejoicing with the results we were given. Each scan is a gift of two more months!!

2. Wayne doesn't have to take chemo anymore!!

3. The doctor is going to start lowering Wayne's Kepra medicine over the next few months (seizure medicine).

4. Wayne can drive!!! He is super excited about this one, and I am to...although it scares me a little as well. Totally have to trust God with this one and know He is ultimately in control. Now I don't have to run all the errands and I don't have to do all the driving!!

5. I'm thankful for my friend Sue who took on my extra six kids today (for a total of 10 kids!). She even managed to work with them and squeeze a little bit of school in today (including PE at the local park). 

6. I'm thankful for a car to drive (even though I was stuck in like 2.5 hours of traffic today). I'm also thankful for stress away oil and Pandora. I turned a stressful time into a worship time.

7. I'm thankful that Wayne and I were able to squeeze a lunch date after his appointment. We went to a restaurant that we frequented when we lived downtown and didn't have kids.

8. I'm thankful for my local Chick-fil-A and that they had free frozen lemonades. On our way home, we all said "When life gives lemons" and snagged 7 free lemonades. That was a great treat after a long day!

9. I'm thankful for leftovers from lunch so I don't have to cook dinner for myself or Wayne.

10. I'm thankful for kids who want to cook and offered to make Mac'n'cheese for dinner (it's organic, so it's totally okay for them to eat right?). I'll probably open up a jar of fresh canned peaches so they get some fruit. 

What are you thankful for today? If we all look carefully at our lives, I'm sure we can find things that we are thankful for too!
