Grateful Friday

just do it.

I'm grateful for my dear, dear friend Lisa. She never falters, always right next to me no matter what - unconditionally. She was kind enough to share some of her 'gratefuls' today for our Friday get-your-mind-in-the-right-place post...thanks Lisa!

I'm grateful my bestie no longer has endrometriosis and fibroids, AND has an awesome doctor! (and Tay is happy he has a healthy mom!)

Dr. Estelle Yamaki

As I just had my first post-op appointment with the best doctor in the whole-wide world, I am so very grateful for modern medicine, a way out of deep depression and anxiety, and robotic/laparoscopic surgery techniques that made recovery so much quicker. What a marvel! I am thankful for St. Joe's hospital and all the staff there, for all my beloved family and friends who attended to me both in the hospital and at home, for those same people that told me to sit down when I needed to recuperate (they were rather bossy, actually), and for the miracle of healing afforded us by the Holy One.

For the sound of a hammer and a drill and a fan,
for the smell of the finish and the stain and the glue.
Ah, the glue and the . . . help me, please! What's my name again?

For the feel of the countertops and water in my sink,
for the sight of clean surfaces that sparkle when they're new.
Ah, and "new" rhymes with "glue" -- and it smells so good, I think.

High there!
It's Greatful Fr-high-day here, too.
