I went back to work today.  I wasn't 100% but I am feeling better.  It was a good thing I went in because Diane was out sick today.  Liz is still somewhat sick too, although not as bad as I am.  We blame the kids.  Bob is totally untouched.  He says the germs do not like his manly body.  Ha, ha!

I am still coughing, but not as much.  I think I am finally on the mend.  The doctor in the hospital said it would take a week before I started feeling better and it is a week tomorrow.  That's one smart doctor.

I am going to try to do Bible Study tomorrow.  We are finishing up the book of Acts.  It's been a great study and I have really enjoyed teaching it.  I think I will just buy the snack.  I don't think anyone would want to eat what I cook at this point.

The topic for today's photo challenge is "I'm Thankful For...".  What am I NOT thankful for?  After almost dying three times, I am thankful for every moment of my life, every breath I take.  

I am thankful for my home, for having food to eat, my car, my job, my health.  I am thankful for being cancer free for seven years.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband that God has given to me.

I am thankful for my three sisters and six brothers.  We all get along and I can't remember the last time we had a fight.  It must be over 40 years since we fought -- when we were kids (and all kids fight).

And I am thankful for my church family.  They are the best.

I am thankful for my pastor, his wife and their daughter, Miss A.  Beside being the sweetest baby ever, she gives me hope for the future.

But mostly I am thankful for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who loved me enough to die for me.  I don't have a picture of Jesus, but I will share with you one of my favorite pictures of the church I attend.  This was taken right around Easter time when the dogwood tree was in bloom.

Thank you, Kaitlin, for this topic.  It made me realize just how many things I have to be thankful for.

Linking up with Kaitlin at Homemaker Design for this photo challenge.
