I'm playing the But Thanks game today. My day started like all teaching days. The alarm went off, I rolled out of bed, put on my exercise clothes, and walked downstairs to get a drink of water before my prayers and stretching out.
The only problem is that instead of walking down the last three or four stairs, I tumbled down them. My shoulder hurts. I can barely walk on my right foot. My hand is swollen,
But Thanks that I didn't fall from the top stair.
But Thanks I wasn't knocked unconscious or hit my head.
But Thanks I didn't shatter the glass display case at the bottom of the stairs.
But Thanks Mr. J was there to help take care of me and drive me to work.
But Thanks I made it to school (barely in time).
But Thanks I made it through my first class of the day.
And here's hoping that at the end of the day I can say, "But Thanks" that I made it through my three back to back afternoon classes. I'll count on that!
There's always something to be grateful for!
