Thankful

Today I am thankful...

I am thankful that we live in a place and a time where Kate's elbow can be repaired.
I am thankful, that even if her growth plate were to be damaged, she will still be able to bend and straighten her arm.
I am thankful that, as I write this, the swelling seems to be going down.
I am thankful for insurance that will help defray the cost of all these expenses.
I am thankful for grandparents, on both sides, who would be willing to drop everything to come and lend a hand.
I am thankful that though Kate is tall, she is thin enough that even I can still pick her up and move her when I need to.
I am thankful for a munchkin who has handled this with strength, grace, and even (almost all the time) with a smile.
I am thankful that we have a God who is greater than anything I can imagine, who promises to work everything, even this, to the good of those who love Him.

Kate says she's thankful for TV, ice, blankets, and StarBear.  Those are all things that have helped her through the seemingly endless hours of trying to get the swelling down.
