I'm linking up again with my blogging bestie Deena at Shoes To Shiraz. Here's what I'm grateful for in July, in numbers...
--29 Schafers, all gathered together. I wrote about my family reunion last week, but I'm so grateful that we all take the time once a year to visit and catch up. There's nothing as important as family.
--1 successful wisdom tooth extraction. Poor T. His jawbone was so strong (thanks to lots of exercise, according to the surgeon), that getting his teeth out was extra difficult. T was very swollen and sore for a week, but he's all better now. Sadly, he's no longer wise, but at least his remaining teeth will stay straight!
--3 amazing doctors, 2 types of insurance, and several treatment plans. When my mom broke her arm while camping, we were in Oregon. She lives in Arizona, and now is staying with me in Washington while she heals. Sort of tricky for the medical people who have been treating her. But all three doctors have been kind, informative, and very helpful. It's been a little confusing, but we're all on the same page now. And the best news....no surgery.
A funny side story: my 97 year old Grandpa Ed was the person to find my mom after she fell, fifteen minutes later. Instead of immediately heading off to get help, he looked down at her and said "and everyone thought it would be me". Very helpful, grandpa.
--1 best friend, who has rescued a gazillion dogs. I love this lady, and I'm so grateful to call her a friend. Her non-profit organization has found homes for hundreds of puppies and old dogs. She's a true hero in the animal rescue world.
--10 members of my family, one beach house, and all ten of my toes in the sand. I'm probably looking at this right now, and I couldn't be more grateful.
I hope you find what you are grateful for this month. Have a wonderful weekend!
