Feeling grateful

October 1, 2008 at 4:32 pm 4 comments

Just a quick note to express my gratitude to quite a few people today.  I thought they deserved a bit of public recognition for helping me out lately.

First, my inlaws have been such a great help.  They dropped everything to help out when I was in the hospital, which is no small task, since they live hours away.  They would have come back again in a heartbeat if I needed them.  I have been blessed to have fantastic inlaws.  No complaints here, I couldn’t have asked for a better family to marry into!

Second, I have a wonderful support network of friends and neighbors who have graciously volunteered to bring us dinner over the last week after my inlaws went back to their own home.  It is amazingly helpful for me to not have to worry about shopping/cooking, since my energy levels are hovering around the zero mark.  Thank you, thank you all, for taking the time to care for my family in addition to your own.  Know that we appreciate each and every bite!

Next, someone who has been extraordinarly generous in answering some medical questions for me, even though I contacted her out of the clear blue sky after a google search.  Weirdly enough, we belong to the same mother’s group, but she was coming in as I started to attend less, and our paths never crossed.   Giant thanks to you Kim, if you catch this.

And last, but definitely not least, my husband, who has borne the brunt of all this crud, and who has pretty much had to be both dad and mom for the last 3.5 weeks, and who will likely have more of my work to take on as I cough and hack my way back to the healthy world.  And he hasn’t complained very much either.  😉  He’s a good one.  Thanks hon.

While I’m hoping to get back to the crafty blogging soon, I didn’t make a darn thing in September to show you.  Not one.  Perhaps to break up the thoroughly exciting posts about sickness, I’ll pull something from my crafty project files to post for you tomorrow.   A post with an actual photo?  Egads!   You’ll think you’re in the wrong place!

Until next time…

    After going through something similar, I know how you feel about thanking those who helped. My neighbors and hubby took good care of me, and you’ve reminded me to give them an extra thank you. Your post says you’re getting better, and I’m happy about that!
