Thankful Thursday ~ Tissues

...especially the kind with lotion!  I'm new to the agony of allergies.  They started about 3 years ago and continually get worse.  It was an unusually runny drippy day and I found myself carrying around the box of tissues from room to room.  By the end of the day my nose was raw and so sore!  I found myself in the kitchen without the tissues and had to grab a paper towel and almost cried because it was so rough on my poor sore nose!  Yep, those tissues with lotion are the best.  And I went out and bought so many boxes that I will never need a paper towel again!

What are you thankful for today???


  1. Morning Annette,

    I am thankful for my sweet friend Crystal (sons girlfriend of 10 years) who all on her own is organizing a charity event in Sep to honor her Mom who lost her battle with cancer in Dec.
    She is a caring and all around beautiful young lady.

  2. Annette - I am sorry you are so miserable. I go through that every spring (this year it is itchy eyes that won't stop).

    I am thankful for my family and friends and the support they provide.

    Hugs - Marie

  3. I hope you feel better soon! No fun, I'm sure.

    I'm thankful for a good run of 20+ years with my same phone number. That went dead today, as we've moved cell phones only. Which I guess means that, ultimately, I'm thankful today for my cell phone. Sort of.

  4. Allergies are my biggest battle Annette! We often joke that we should own stock in Puffs - I only buy the kind with lotion. I can easily go through a full family size box when an "attack" hits - and the only real help is to sleep. However, the face masks that you keep in the freezer help provide a little relief too - also the sinus rinses. I take Zyrtec every day. I've gotten allergy shots for about 5 years - I finally stopped. I don't think they helped all that much for me.

    As for being thankful...I am beyond thankful for sweet Jenna. She has started making the sign for "more" - which for her and food is ALWAYS more. Absolutely melts my heart. She provides an unending amount of joy to me!

  5. I am thankful for YOUR blog posts to remind me to appreciate the little things. Hope you are feeling better soon!!!

  6. Those lotion Kleenex ARE the best!! We buy them every time we take a trip to Utah where the air is dry and cold and we usually end up getting sick. Instant comfort!!

  7. I'm so sorry to hear about your struggles with allergies!! I also have allergies, and I know how it feels to have a nose rubbed raw. Moving into a more urban area helped me a lot.
