Thankfulness creates gratitude which generates contentment that causes peace.

Todd Stocker 

January 24th - thankful Sunday

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, know that ever step forward is a step toward active something bigger and better than your current situation.

Brian Tracy

Even if we are not able to get out much these days, its amazing how fast the time flies.  And here we are another Sunday to give thanks for and to enjoy.

Im thankful for a day of rest, to stay home, rest where it is safe and cozy.  This week and last week I had to make a trip to pharmacy for a refill on my prescriptions for high blood pressure.  Im thankful that my pharmacist agreed to get it set up so next time I go I can get both at the same time instead of making two trips as Ive been having to do.  All I had to do was ask and he readily agreed to set it up.  They dont volunteer that information.  Im thankful that that they were so helpful.

Ithankful to our local health department that has enabled a way to get notified when the vaccine will be available for me to get. They are working hard to keep everyone informed. They said not to call, their phone lines were overwhelmed.So thankful for the technology that lets them do this for us.  We all have our questions and this way well get the answers. 

So far weve all  managed to get through another week safe and healthy.  No new cases have occurred in our family.  We just have to do our best to keep healthy and safe right now .  That makes me very thankful.  Wearing a mask has been proven the best action at this point and we do that.  Thankfully they are available readily or we can even make our own.  My DILs have made me some very nice ones.  However, when I went to the doctors office a couple of weeks ago they made me replace the one I was wearing with one of their own that they said was proven to be safer.  It looked like the disposable blue and white masks that Ive seen available in the stores.  I even have a box of them in case I dont have a clean one of my own to wear. But they were the N95 masks that healthcare workers  wear and are medical grade masks.

So thankful for the readily available masks and hand sanitizer.  They were at shortage for awhile, but now I see them for sale everywhere I go.

There is so much to be thankful for, my list could go on and on.  I hope you all had a great week too and have somethings to be thankful for. 

I can no other answer make, but thanks, and thanks.

There is always something to be thankful for. I'm thankful for another day.

I am thankful for God's blessings to me this day. Each day I wake up with no pain I am grateful. WHEN I take time to think I remember those gone who suffered every day of their lives. I have friends now that do. At my age I should be happy to be alive, I am, but to be alive with no pain, now that is something to be thankful for.
PS: Little aches at times are NOT PAIN! ;-)

Definitely wear the 3 ply disposables when you have to be inside anywhere, it's the only ones I use. Homemade ones are nice for outdoors while social distancing.

An N-95 that looks like the disposables? I'm going to Amazon today! Thank you so much for the good information -- straight from the doctor's office!
