November's Theme: Thankfulness

Did I mention how icy it is here? Today I took the dog for a walk in the woods, and I made my way along the edge of the path in order to avoid the layer of ice on the path itself. Things were going swimmingly until I had to cross the path to the other side. I would have done just fine, if the dog hadn't chosen that moment to come rushing up behind me.

I'm pretty sure she intended to stop before she plowed forcefully into my calves. However, it would appear that dog feet don't grip ice any better than my boots do. I flew up in the air and landed with my legs on top of the dog and my head on the ice.

So here's what I'm thankful for: I'm thankful that I was able to pick myself up and make my way home. I'm thankful that the only lingering results of my fall are a little soreness and a nice sized bump on the back of my head. And that the dog's fine, too, even though she and I are no longer on speaking terms.

Julana is thankful for pediatric specialists and Christmas in the schools.

Update:Kim in ON is thankful for heating pads
...because my shoulder is feeling the effects of a torn rotator cuff and what the physiotherapist is doing to help it heal. I guess it gets worse before it gets better.

What are you thankful for?
