Thankful Challenge, Day 26
26. Health. Although various issues have plagued us--like Gabriel's stomach troubles and his and Daniel's allergies (which I don't think are allergies at all) to all antibiotics--we are an unusually healthy family. We have had our scares--when I nearly bled to death at 2 of my 3 deliveries, all 3 kids' broken teeth or split lips, and Daniel's broken leg--but they are not long lasting issues. In fact, 4 out of 5 of us have not seen a doctor in over a year. Because we haven't needed to. Even when we get colds and such, we stay home and use natural remedies like humidifiers, hot tea, extra vitamin C, and rest, and we get well. And for that I am incredibly thankful.
