Thankful-Day 12

Today I am keenly aware of how lucky we are to have a wonderful public library.

Yesterday, after a day of fun with family and friends, Thea twisted her back. She has a degenerative disc and every so often has a flare up. By the time I picked her up, she was in significant pain and really starting to stiffen.

I know what’s going through your head right about now. How on earth does this make her grateful for a library? It connects, really.

As you know if you have ever suffered from back pain, all you can do is rest and wait. Thea spent today on and off the heating pad, propped with pillows to support her in the best position, and downing ibuprofen as often as I allowed.

So, while she rested, Thea read.

Fortunately, we had made a trip to the library last week and each girl brought home a stack, so there was plenty to keep her occupied.

I am thankful for such easy access to great books.
(and for heating pads and ibuprofen)
