Thankful Thursday

It is March 1st and it is Thankful Thursday again!

1.     I am thankful for Gretchen at Living in Savannah 2 for introducing me to Thankful Thursdays and for always inspiring me and reminding me of life's blessings.

2.     My friend Luanne at LUANNE'S LIFE LIVING WITH LUPUS for highlighting my journal, and for demonstating for all to see how you can live with chronic pain and still be strong, giving, kind and an inspiration for all.   Luanne has a new entry up that everyone should read.

3.     My pediatrician, Dr. Rappaport, for being a kind and friendly woman, as well as a great doctor!

4.     My kids, not only are they my greatest achievements and my greatest blessings, they are also my greatest inspiration to push myself and be strong!

5.     My dad, who deserves a special shout out this week, even sick (thanks to my daughter, Typhoid Pumpkin) he has been cooking and helping with the kids.  Thanks, Dad.

                                                                          

 It is CarnivAOL submission time!  This month someone new will be taking the submission emails!  Please go to CarnivAOL™ and read the latest entry for issue #34!  Last edition, hardly anyone sent in submissions... so, do it this time!  Okay?  I will probably send in my last entry on Chronic Pain so it will reach a larger audience, but any entry about any old thing is fine!  Send it in!

                                                                                  

In other news, now Fuzzy has the strep throat and started antibiotics, just now.  Hopefully, this will be the last family member to fall to Typhiod Pumpkin's latest round of plague.

I am feeling okay.  I still have the dregs of a cold and cough.  Annoying.  Earlier I had a terrible headache, but three cups of coffee later... it has disappeared! 

There is supposed to be a big rain storm coming that will dump 1-3 inches of rain overnight.  I can feel it in my bones.  I would make a great weather predictor.  lol

be well,
Dawn

I submitted to CarnivAOL.  I'd rather have rain than snow. :)

I am laughing about Mona Lisa sticking her tongue out.  Your March graphic is beautiful.  Sorry to hear about the strep being there.  Maybe it jumped through my computer from my Rob to your house??!  Hope you got some really great antibiotics for that as it doesn't go away easily.  Hugs,
Lisa

O I have that Mona Lisa too, with a few others making faces, and her hair flies up, other unexpected things.  Funny how ppl always love seeing them in email, it's like taking this famous icon and having a good giggle with it lol nice to see someone else found them!  So sorry about your cold, but glad your headache's gone.  We've been hearing about that storm coming, and my Canadian friend called to say it's snowing heavy in Toronto.  Prepare and stay well, Dawn.  xoxo CATHY

I want to go to Carnivaol. I am not sure of the procedure. I used to know but I am having a mental problem today.
