Another Double Gratitude post :0)

So apparently posting every day isn't my forte! That's all right what I lack in regularity I will make up for with persistence!

Day 14 was Sunday and I was very thankful for a movie theatre on post that showed a FREE and EARLY showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now I know that some people don’t like Harry Potter. I respect that opinion.I understand the whole witchcraft thing. Me personally I look at it as a fun story.My children know the difference between a make up story and real witchcraft.They know that witchcraft is of the devil.We can know the reality and still enjoy a story with it in there.I think the thing that makes Harry Potter ok for me is that in the end good wins. In my mind its a story between good and evil and good wins.Yes its a good wizard But hey it works for us! We really enjoyed seeing the movie and the fact that it was free was even better!

For Day 15 I am grateful for modern medicine.My husband came home from P.T (physical training) today hobbling.The first thought in my head was “Really?what have you done to yourself now?”  Now before you think me a unloving wife let me explain.During his 12 month deployment to Iraq my husband was hurt several time BY HIMSELF.That's right.Of all the worries  a wife has when her husband is deployed to a war zone MINE was that he wouldn’t hurt himself AGAIN. :0) Anywho, like I said my first thoughts weren't the most gracious! It turns out while they were running today Hubby stepped wrong.He said it POPPED and hurt a lot! After a long E.R visit and some X-rays we found out that he tore two of his tendons in his ankle. I am thankful for the pain med’s that are helping Justin relax and for the fact that he could have an x-ray and know exactly what's wrong.

Ah, glad he did go to the doc! Tell him to be more careful - and maybe watch where he's walking/running...hehe. Hoping he has a swift recovery and the pain pills keep him civil. ;-)

And we are still totally jealous about the Harry Potter thing - counting down to the weekend to see if I'll be able to go.

I hope your hubby is feeling better, and I'm glad you enjoyed the movie!
