A big day!!! My sister's "50th" B-Day!, FIL is in hospital - heart attack, my fthr is having "self induced" health issues and our poor little doggie, Jasper, has an ear infection. You might think I am whining and complaining... I am not! I am giving thanx to the Lord:
1) Thank you Lord for my "sister, may I always be able have to call her "MY OLDER" sister. We our differences, but she is mine. You brought me to her. And, she will always be "older".
2)Thank You Lord for FIL heart attack: He is in a gr8 hospital getting gr8 care. It is a wake up call for all of us.
3)Thank You Lord for my FTHR's "Self-induced Issues": again, it is another wake up call not only to him, but others around him that the choices we make affect not only us but others... the ripple effect. It has taken him 50+ years to realize he can not fight this alone.
4) Thank You Lord for bringing us our Jasper. When we thought we could not love a dog as much we loved our big, lug American Bull Dog, Sadie (gone about 6 yrs), the teeny tiny furball came into our lives and took over. Today, I had to use tough love @ the vet's office cuz his ear hurt so bad, he tried to bite the vet. After holding him down & letting the vet get some ointment in the ear, Jasper, gave me the look that said, "Thanx, I feel better already". Thank you for our pup and being able to take him to the vet.
So, I am not complaining that my day is a little complicated, I am thankful I have today and I pray I will have a tomorrow.
