XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

Dear Thankful Friends,

I am sick today with a whole mess of allergies that have settled in my chest. Please pray that my body will be able to fight this off before it ends up becoming something worse. I promise to come back and post a thankful list at some point today, but I need some rest first. However...I'm going ahead and opening up the link for all of you, so feel free to link back to your blog! I can't wait to check them all out later. It's one of my favorite things to do during the week because it's so uplifting!

Thanks so much in advance for your prayers!


(P.S. Don't forget to come check out my thankful list later today! It will be added to this same post.)

Updated at 12:12 pm to add my "ten things"!

  1. WOW! I am so blessed to come here and read your comments from this morning. Thank you for your prayers and sweet words. This blogging community rocks!
  2. And speaking of blessings...aren't we blessed that God gave man the knowledge to create medicines that can make us feel better!?!!
  3. The sunlight is spilling in every window, and it fills my heart with joy!
  4. I am so thankful that my siblings, siblings-in-law, Mr. Brownstone, and myself are not "just family"...we are all friends ~ genuine, true friends.
  5. And speaking of genuine, true friends...one of my dearest friends brought me a Diet Coke with easy ice, cherry syrup, vanilla syrup, and real cherries from Sonic this morning because she knew I was feeling yucky...
  6. That's not to mention the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Burrito she threw in for good measure...
  7. OR the fact that another one of my dearest friends rang our second line (while the first friend was telling me she was coming) to ask me the same thing! (Maybe I should have taken her up on a second cup of sheer delight!)
  8. My kids are both healthy right now, and that makes me soooo happy!
  9. It is quiet today...with the exception of the occasional pick-up game of squirrel basketball in the attic.
  10. Some friends of mine got a better report from their child's doctor than they were expecting this morning. I'm thankful that a virus can (simply??) run its course, but please add "D" to your prayers because a virus never SEEMS simple when you're the one that has it (OR when it's one of your kids)!!

Allergies just stink! (that is if you sinuses can clear enough to smell them!) I'll keep you in my prayers!

Dyane said...

I hope you get to feeling better soon!! I'm sorry I posted my thankful list twice. It told me it didn't go through the first time, so dumb me entered it in again without checking! Woops!:(

Mzzterry said...

Empathy from me on that breathing situation!! Prayers are going up for improved health for you.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Take care of yourself, woman. Don't let that turn into bronchitis or worse.

Mercedes said...

I missed last week due to computer problems and migraines! I am back this week-and I had mine done at 5:30 a.m.-lol! I'm an early riser. Check it out here

Have a great day!

I am so sorry that you are sick today. Get well! I actually did not get to post my 10 things either or the memes from the day before. It has been a little crazy around here. Hope you get better!

I'm done! I posted! And I'm praying for you Jill.

We are THAT Family said...

I hope you feel better soon.

Jenn said...

Call me if you want me to pick you up a Diet Coke!!! Get some rest while the kids are at school...let me know if you need anything!!

Jenn said...

Okay, my linky messed up again-why does it keep going to the wrong post??....so I hope that you are still on the computer and can fix it for me...what is the deal with that thing, anyway???

Amanda Crisp said...

Hope you get to feeling better!

And in the meantime, enjoy that Diet Coke! :)

Jill said...

Hope you get to feeling better Jill!!! Love you!

It's always a bummer to feel bad when the weather is nice. Hopefully, all the thankful lists will help cheer you up!
