This week I am thankful for the good time we had at the weekend picnic for the rescue group from which we adopted Murphy.  Murphy especially enjoyed running around in the big fenced in area with all the other little dogs.  He's the most outgoing little fellow so for him, that picnic was wonderful!

I came home with a case of shingles so for me the picnic was a little less fun.  But still I am thankful for early diagnosis of the problem (Monday morning) and the availability of the antiviral drugs that minimize long term effects of this unpleasant disease.  I am also thankful that mine is effecting a nerve that wraps around the trunk of my body rather than a nerve that serves the facial area around the ear or eye.  So now I just wait for it to run its course.

And finally, I am thankful for God's provision of a loving family and good friends who pray and are willing to care for me when I am less than 100%.

God is good, all the time.  What are you thanking Him for this week?

So sorry about the shingles. I'm thankful with you that we now have antivirals to treat it.

Praying you mend soon. My mom had shingles and wasn't diagnosed right away, so she had a rough recovery.

Oh, Dorothy, I'm so sorry you have shingles! I've heard it's so uncomfortable, and I'm glad you got meds to treat it early. I'll pray for you!
