Blessings in times of trial

Since I've had a lot of time for reflections the last 3 weeks, I've been trying to compile a blessing or thankfulness list. Especially for when I'm downright sad. Some of these at times are easier to thank God than others, but I know that they are for my own good. Hopefully I'll be adding to this list as time goes on.

1. That my concussion was not any worse.
2. Hopefully I should be better in 4 more weeks. Sigh.
3. That the doctor didn't say it would be months until I feel better.
4. For a loving family (especially Andy, Daniel and Jacob since they are home the most) who've pitched in.
5. Getting out of having to do the dishes. Not going to lie here. :)
6. That I got the concussion in winter when there is nothing exciting that needs to be done outside anyways.
7. Still being able to go to Spokane a couple of weekends ago.
8. Not being able to read for more than 10 minutes at a time
9. Netflix instant watch. I love you.
10. Documentaries. And Pushing Daisies.
11. My laptop dying.
12. Having a spare laptop that I can use.
13. Having a smaller appetite.
14. Already knowing a good Physical Therapist (PT) (Thanks to Mom having her last year)
15. That my neck doesn't normally hurt like it does today, thanks to the PT.
16. Crossword puzzles.
