52 Weeks of Gratitude: Week 3
I hope everyone had a great week! I’m on day 5 of recovering from my surgery on Wednesday. This time off has given me the chance to work on blogging, because I can’t do much else. It has also given me time to think of my gratitude this week.
Here are a few things I’m grateful for this week:
1. Modern Medicine
Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate doctors and (most) modern medicine. However, it has its time and place. I probably shouldn’t have ignored the belly button pain for however long I had it, but I did and I was able to get it taken care of quickly. Most of the time, I try to take care of any issues I have holistically, but in this case it was not possible. So, what am I grateful for? I am grateful for modern medicine and amazing doctors and surgeons. I am grateful that my dad’s insurance allowed me to go the hospital with the best doctors (since my new insurance won’t allow me). I am grateful that every single staff member I came in contact with on Wednesday was so incredibly personable and sweet. It made my time there pleasant, despite having to get a small incision in my belly. I am truly grateful that I have the option to use modern medicine when I need to.
2. Chicken Noodle Soup
I know it sounds silly, but it has so many nutrients and healing properties, and it’s light. I have consumed more chicken both broth than I ever thought I would. Brian made me the BEST chicken noodle soup which I have been thoroughly enjoying. My best friend also brought me cans of chicken noodle soup. It’s one the best soups to have whenever you’re feeling sick or are recovering.
When I came home after my surgery, I turned on my phone and had bunch of texts from co-workers checking on me. On Thursday, they continued to check in and I received a card from one of them. It is so nice to know that people do truly care.
