gratituesday - health

today i would like to publicly take time to thank the Lord for the health that He has blessed me and my family with.  we are all relatively healthy.  some readers might roll their eyes here because it is a known fact for lots of people that when you come over to our house to visit for a few days, you'll probably leave with a cough, sniffles, sneezes, or the full blown flu.  BUT, we're alive and happy and compared to a lot of the world, we have good health!
on saturday otter pop's mom took a fall.  on her face.  she's now suffering head pain (and not knowing completely what the extent of the injury is) and a broken wrist.  she's miserable.  she's a very independent lady that feels completely helpless!  it was almost certain that she suffered a stroke, but the drs were surprised when the CAT scan said no to that.  her broken bone and head injury was minimal and fantastic compared to the effects of a stroke (even a minor one)!
yesterday otter pop got hit by a car when he was out test riding one of the motorcycles he was working on.  he has some missing skin on his left elbow/forearm, but no broken bones and very little impact.  being t-boned by a suburban when one is on a motorcycle doesn't always end in the way it did for otter pop!
in the past three days i've gone through a lot of stress and worry.  i'm so thankful that God has protected us all and kept our health in a positive way.  it's very kind of Him! 
how's your health?!  do you have something that you're thankful for???

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
