Note a la Gratitude

These last few days have been a complete whirlwind. On Friday morning I had surgery to remove my impacted wisdom teeth. Unfortunately, I've been in quite a bit of pain and have had several complications, but my goodness, I have learned so much.

Where do I even begin to share my thankfulness?


{ Grateful for... }

     + the kind words of encouragement my future hubs speaks to me daily
     + calls from my mommy
     + any food that isn't soup, yogurt, or applesauce that I can suck down
     + an understanding boss
     + a snuggly puppy to make me feel better
     + Adam's patience/gentleness when I'm sad or hurting
     + blog friends' get well tweets
     + an extra sweet nurse to take care of me at emergency check-ups
     + vicodin
     + vicodin
     + vicodin. yup... thrice grateful.
     + the daily check-in text from my daddy
     + the super fresh donuts on my counter to surprise my love
     + august 22nd, our meet-iversary (3 years of love!)
     + thoughtful friends who bring you gatorade at 11 p.m.
     + antibiotics
     + future (wonderful) in-laws who let me crash after surgery
     + hugs from co-worker friends
     + DVR
     + losing 7+ lbs (gotta look at the brightside, right?)
     + people who embody the essence of love

You are deeply loved.
I am so thankful to each and every one of you whose selfless actions made me feel better. Although I'm not quite out of the woods yet, I can see the light in the distance! Hurray!!

First thing I plan on doing upon healing?
Find the world's crunchiest foods and have a massive crunch-tacular feast. Chomp chomp!
Oh! And kiss my redheaded wonder for taking such good care of me this last week. :)

May you also look for and find some sunshine amongst the rain today...


  1. You poor thing! I'm glad you're on the mend and can look on the positive side of things in such a sickly state. Feel better soon!

  2. How you start to feel better! SO glad you have so many happy things to keep you uplifted tho :)

  3. I am thankful Meg, that your surgery went well and you feel better. And for all the nice people who surrounded you with love.
    I pray for more strength and perfect health for you.

  4. Feel better soon! I had the same thing happen to me when I had mine removed a few years back. I know I definitely was ready for solid food!!

  5. at least the surgery is over and the recovery can begin although that part sucks. hope the healing goes smoothly

  6. I hope you feel better soon! It took a week or so for me to feel kind of normal after I had all 4 surgically removed. Took a couple of weeks to normal eating though! The first thing I ate, once I could, was chicken strips and fries from Arby's!

  7. Awww you poor, poor thing. I remember that all too well and it was absolute HELL. Hang in there and eat lots and lots of water ice! xoxoxo
