Thankful Thursday

We are enjoying our Christmas celebrations and traditions.

Today I am thankful for...
~ my husband taking a few days off around Christmas to be with us.

~ having my boy home for Christmas vacation!  Titus is having so much fun with his big brother.

~ going to see family last weekend.  We had a nice meal together and exchanged gifts.  The adults made a boy and girl saran wrap ball filled with little gifts.  It was funny to open them.

~ that I was okay after a scary experience on Tuesday.  We were all eating lunch at Rosa's on Taco Tuesday.  I had just started eating and suddenly felt myself choking.  I have a condition when my throat feels like it is constricting when I eat's very random when it happens and I haven't been able to pinpoint why it happens.  When I have this feeling I take a drink of water and it goes away and I eat as normal.  Well Tuesday I thought it was that feeling at first but quickly knew it was not.  I felt like I was drowning.  I didn't know what was in my throat, it was just a terrible feeling. My family noticed I was having trouble and I got out of the booth.  Some of the food came out and I could breathe again.  It was such a scary feeling. My Mom thought she was going to have to get up and do the Heimlich.  I am not sure what caused it, and it really shook me up.  I felt drained the rest of the day. I was thankful I was okay.

~ remembering Peepaw.  Today marks 11 years since he died.  I miss him and his calls and hugs and wisdom. I miss that Titus doesn't get to know him.  I'm thankful for his love and difference he made in my life.

~ our Christmas traditions and enjoying the season.  I finally got our Christmas letters/cards/pictures mailed.  We went to look at lights around the courthouse last night which was fun and pretty to see.  Titus said on off when he watched the lights blinking.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Have a day of blessings!

Oh my, I'm glad you okay. That must have been horrible to experience. Happy for all your other things to be thankful for.
