It's Thankful Thursday! Welcome to this weekly link up, whether you're here for the first time or a long-time follower. I appreciate you being here!
This week I am thankful for:
* Online Church. Without this, I would not be able to attend church right now because of the situation with my ankle. I've been volunteering in the online platform for several weeks now and I was able to volunteer through our 6 Christmas services without setting foot outside the house. Grateful for technology!
* Healing. Slowly but surely, the ankle is healing. I see the Orthopedic Surgeon tomorrow for my follow up. I am hoping against hope that this huge, heavy, ugly cast gets taken off. I don't know if I'll be put in a "normal" cast or if I'll go back to the boot from here. I do know that anything has to be better than this cast!! I'm sure even if it's the boot, I'll have to wear it round the clock...but that is ok because at least it can be taken off to change clothes and wash up! Right now I have 2 pairs of pants I can wear because only 2 pairs will fit over this cast. One pair is a pair of yoga type exercise pants which are rather warm and barely make it over the cast. The other is a pair of cropped pajama bottoms. I know my overall wardrobe is limited, but after 2 weeks, I will be grateful to expand beyond these 2 pairs of pants!
* I'm also just thankful for getting through Christmas in general. Enduring the holidays after experiencing a loss is very difficult. Yesterday was tough - I'm not going to lie. I was glad to close the door on Christmas 2013.
* Moving forward. Every day we get through is a move in the right direction. I am ready to begin a new year.
